Pretty Pink Cookie Dough Truffles

Some things don't go out of style.

























I have posted these little gems several times before.  They are just so cute and delicious I wanted to share them with you again.  I made these for a friend's baby shower.  You can guess she was expecting a little girl.  If you have not got around to trying these yet, you really should.  They are easy, delicious, and everybody loves them!


Cookie Dough Truffles

recipe from Baked Perfection

1 cup all purpose flour1/4 tsp saltdash of cinnamon1 stick butter, softened (it is even okay if it is melting a little)1/2 cup brown sugar1/4 cup sugar1/2 tsp vanilla extract3/4 cups mini semi-sweet chocolate chips1 - 2 tablespoons water
Assorted candy melts


In a medium bowl combine the flour, salt, and dash of cinnamon. In a second larger bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract until creamy. Slowly beat in the flour mixture until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips. Add water if mixture is too dry to form into balls. Roll the mixture into quarter size balls and lay on cookie sheet lined with wax paper (Should make approximately 20). Chill for several hours or freeze for 15-20 minutes until firm.


Melt candy melts in the microwave per directions on package (30 sec intervals, stirring in between). Gently dip the cookie dough ball into the candy coating. Once covered, remove and let the excess chocolate fall off. Place back on wax paper to dry.


To decorate with drizzled chocolate, place melted chocolate in a plastic sandwich bag. Using scissors, cut the very tip off the sandwich bag. The smaller your cut, the smaller the drizzle. Use the sandwich bag to pipe the chocolate back and forth over the cookie dough truffle until you reach the desired look.  If you chose, top with sprinkles.
