Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

I have never been a big fan of cookies, well maybe my grandmas snickerdoodles and maybe only if they are right out of the oven....but I will take cookie dough anyday!!! My grandma always slapped my hand when I asked for a bite because of the raw eggs. I thought to myself I will always chance eating cookie dough and not have any cautions about what would happen later...I wanted my moment! SO, when I stumbled across this recipe I HAD to do it! It is cookie dough, without the egg, wrapped in a chocolate candy coating. ohmygawsh these are delicious and just like yesterday, for the sake of photography I had to eat a couple in order to photograph them....maybe I ate a little to many.... but for a minimum donation of $1 you can have your cookie dough bite!

Chocolate chip cookie dough truffles


2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup milk or soy milk
1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
14 oz dark chocolate candy coating


Beat butter and sugars and in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add milk and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt and mix on low speed (or by hand) until mixed. Stir in chocolate 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 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).
