What could be better than Cookie Dough Truffles? This no-bake, easy to make dessert, makes an ideal sugary afternoon treat for dessert. I must caution you, however, that these truffles are extremely addicting. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

What is your favorite way to enjoy cookie dough?

Cookie Dough Truffles

Prep: 30 minutes
Chill time: 2 hours and 30 minutes
Yield: Makes 3 ½ dozen

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 can (14-ounce) sweetened condensed milk, fat-free
3/4 to 1 cup mini chocolate chips, semi-sweet
1 package (14-ounce) dark candy coating

Directions

Beat the butter and sugar in an electric mixer until fluffy. Add in vanilla, mixing well.

Alternating, add a bit of the flour mixture followed by a small amount of the condensed milk, beating well in-between each addition.

Stir in chocolate chips. Scoop 1 tablespoon portions of the mixture, rolling each scoop into a ball in the palm of your hand. Place them on wax-paper lined baking sheets and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until they are firm.

Place back in refrigerator or freezer for at least 30 minutes.

Melt chocolate according to package directions. Let cool. Using forks or a dipping tool, dip cookie balls in candy coating until completely covered. Place on wax-paper lined baking sheet and chill until set about 30 minutes. Store in Ziploc® Brand Containers with the Smart Snap® Seal or Ziploc® VersaGlass™ Containers and place in refrigerator for up to one week.

Optional: Put a popsicle stick in each truffle and serve as a cookie pop.
