While watching “Paula’s Best Dishes” I saw an episode where she make cookie dough truffles. And what perfect timing this was for me. I was trying to figure out what to make for a girl’s night-in party and this seemed just right. I will be using my Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe, but removing a few ingredients from that recipe.
Here are the ingredients needed for this recipe:
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
- 2 Tbsp water
- 1 pkg. semisweet baker’s chocolate
Step 1: In a medium bowl, sift together the flour and salt; set aside.
Step 2: In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until well blended.
Step 3: Beat in the vanilla extract and water until light and creamy.
Step 4: Mix in the flour mixture until just blended.
Step 5: Stir in the miniature semisweet chocolate chips.
Step 6: Scoop out 1 Tbsp of dough and place onto a parchment lined baking sheet. (Lightly flour fingers to keep from sticking to dough)
Step 7: Refrigerate dough balls for 2 hours.
Step 8: Melt baker’s chocolate in a double boiler or microwave. (I recommend checking out my Easy Truffles for steps 8-10)
Step 9: Using 2 forks, dip each chilled dough ball into the chocolate and coat it in the melted chocolate.
Step 10: Place back onto the baking sheet and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Step 11: Store in an air tight container.
Note: As a side treat I will be adding some Nutella in the center of some of the cookie dough ball before chilling them.
