Cookie Dough Bites

I saw these little gems on a blog called bakerella. Which I am sure most of you have come across, and if you have not please go. It is an amazing blog! These were delicious and did not last very long at my house.

Cookie Dough Truffles
1/2 Cup    Butter, room temp
1/4 Cup    Sugar
1/2 Cup    Packed Brown Sugar (I used dark, bakerella used light)
2 Tbsp.    Milk
1/2 tsp.    Vanilla
1 1/4 Cup    AP Flour
1/2 tsp.    Salt (if using unsalted butter)
1/2 Cup    Mini Chocolate Chips

For Coating
Chocolate candy coating
2 Cups    Chocolate chips
1 Tbsp    Shortening

Cut butter into chunks and put both brown and white sugars into bowl

Beat until light and fluffy, around 3 Min

Add milk and vanilla, mix until combined.

Add in flour and salt (if used) until combined.

Stir in chocolate chips with a spatula. Place into fridge (or freezer just don't forget about them) until firm enough to scoop and roll into 1" balls. Around 15-30 Min

I just estimated the size and ended up with 40 of them. Place onto a sheet pan with either wax or parchment paper. Place into freezer for at least 15 min to firm up. 

I cut cake pop sticks in half and put one in each cookie dough bite. 

For the coating either follow the directions on the back of the candy coating package or:
melt the 2 cups of chocolate chips with the 1 Tbsp of shortening until smooth, melt 30 seconds at a time and stir.

Take out of freezer and dip however you like, you can dip all the way like Bakerella, or like caramel apples like mine. You could even put into a decorating bag and drizzle it over the bites.

Place back into the fridge to firm up, keep refrigerated for up to a week
