Homemade Truffles

Emily came home today for her Christmas vacation from school. And look what she brought! Homemade truffles! Oh boy, were we glad to welcome her home!

Seriously, we are glad to have her home for many more (and better) reasons than homemade truffles. Still this recipe is a winner so I am sharing it with all of you.

Cookie Dough Truffles

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups flour
1 (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 1/2 pounds semi-sweet chocolate candy coating

  1. In mixing bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  2. Add flour, milk and vanilla. Mix well.
  3. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
  4. Shape into 1 inch balls and place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets.
  5. Loosely cover and refrigerate until firm. (Approximately 1 hour)
  6. In a microwave safe bowl, melt candy coating, stirring often, until smooth.
  7. Dip balls in coating and place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets.
  8. Refrigerate until firm. (About 15 minutes)
  9. Store in refrigerator.
