Two words….SOOO GOOD!! If you love eating the cookie dough batter right out of the bowl rather than eating the actual cookies itself than “THIS” is the recipe for you my friends. My kids had a ball helping me make these and had even more fun knowing they could actually eat the dough right from the bowl as there is no eggs involved in making batter. I make PB and chocolate truffles quite often but, these are just super good and totally worth the time it takes to make them.
1 cup room temp butter (2 sticks)
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cans sweetened evaporated milk
2 cups powdered sugar
1 bag semi sweet chocolate chip
3 bags semi sweet chocolate chips ( for melting)
Sprinkles, jimmies ( whatever you call them) or chocolate shavings for a little garnish.
Beat butter, brown sugar and vanilla till creamy. Add evaporated milk. Add powdered sugar a 1/2 cup at a time, mix and the add your salt. Once combined, stir in 1 bag of mini chocolate chips. Refrigerate dough for 1/2 hr till firm. Remove and make your dough balls( balls should be a tad bit smaller than a golf ball). Place each dough ball on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze for 15 mins.
Melt the 3 bags of chocolate chips in the microwave for 1 min. Stir till chocolate is silky( you might need to microwave a few more seconds if chips have not fully melted after stirring). Using a tablespoon, dip each dough ball in chocolate making sure to fully coat. Once removing dough ball from melted chocolate, place each coated dough ball directly on a parchment lined cookie sheet and add garnish the top immediately.
When all truffles are fully coated and garnished, place back in the freezer for 10 mins till chocolate hardens. Remove and serve.
Prep time: about 1hr
Makes approx 15-20 depending on how big you decide to make your truffles.
