Choc. Chip Cookies... ovenless style!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles
Makes approx. 3-4 dozen

2 1/2 C flour
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 C (2 sticks) butter
3/4 C granulated sugar
3/4 C packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 C milk
1 c mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (can use chopped chocolate bar)

2+ C dark chocolate chips (Again can use chopped chocolate bars)

Beat butter and sugars and in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy(or by hand with whisk... let butter get really soft/not melted though). Add milk and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt and mix on low speed (or by hand) until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips. (I used a chocolate bar, chopped to size of mini chips)

Cover and chill dough for 1 hour.

When dough is firm enough to handle (it may help to lightly flour your hands), form dough into 1″ balls and arrange on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Place sheets in freezer and let chill for 30 minutes.

Melt chocolate candy coating in a double boiler or in microwave according to package directions. Using forks or a dipping tool, dip cookie balls into candy coating to cover. Tap fork on side of pan to remove any excess coating, and return to waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Chill until set. Store, chilled, in an airtight container for up to 1 week (though good luck making them last that long).

Half batch: 1-2 dozen

1 1/4 C flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 baking soda
1/2 C butter
6 T gran. sugar
6 T packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
5 T milk
1/2 C chocolate chips

1+ C Chocolate for dipping
