I have this obsession with the cake balls. Of course, I love the oreo balls. And the pumpkin spice balls are not too bad either.

But these below are quite possibly my most favorite Christmas ‘cookie’ ever.

 

 

It is pretty simple – the base is just butter and brown sugar.

Check out the dough. There are no eggs in this, so feel free to eat the entire bowl like I may have done.

Just make sure to leave enough time (and ingredients) to whip up another batch.

 

 

I actually liked this dough more than regular cookie dough.

The chocolate chips go into the dough while the mixer is on, so it chops them into tiny chunks. I love that.

 

 

I rolled them into balls. The dough was extremely sticky, so it makes it easier if your hands are covered in flour. I also found that putting it in the fridge to ‘set’ for a few minutes made it a bit easier, too.

Doesn’t it look exactly like cookie dough? Notice how creamy it is.

I dipped these in milk chocolate. I’m sure they would be great dipped in any kind of chocolate. But dipped in milk chocolate? They really taste like a cookie.

Incredible. I don’t really have any more exciting words to say.

Besides, my mouth is still full of cookie dough.

The only way this will make you sick is if you eat too much. Since there are no raw eggs, it is very easy to do. Eat up!

 

 

Cookie Dough Truffles

adapted from FoodNetwork

1/2 cup butter, softened

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups flour

14 oz can sweetened, condensed milk

3/4 cup milk chocolate chips

 

To coat: 1 1/2 lbs chocolate disks or chocolate chips

n a large bowl cream butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer at medium speed until creamy. Add vanilla. Gradually beat in flour and add milk. Add chocolate morsels, mixing well. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place on waxed paper; chill 2 hours.

Since the dough is sticky, roll your fingers into flour. This will make it easier to roll.

Melt chocolate chips or disks in a double boiler. Using 2 forks, dip cookie balls into candy coating to cover. Place on waxed paper and chill to set. Store in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

If you add these to your holiday cookie list, you will have a lot of happy campers.

Enjoy! :)

    Yet another fantastic treat created by Jessica!! Yum.

    Yes, you can order Barney Butter online. Type in the name on google to get their webite. It’s sort of expensive, but worth it! The crunchy is best.

    Holy cow those look good!

    One tip? If I am rolling anything out, whether its meatballs or cookies, I spray my hands with Pam. Nothing sticks and sometimes when you add more flour to a cookie it doesn’t get as flakey.

    Thanks! My step-son will love this recipe!!
