If you love cookie dough…
OK, if? Yeah, who doesn’t love cookie dough? The good news here is that these truffles are basically cookie dough minus the egg. So, you don’t have to feel weird about eating raw eggs. Or, in my case, I don’t have to feel weird about not feeling weird about eating raw eggs.
Just mix up the dough.
Then, stick it in the fridge for at least an hour to chill.
Next, roll out into dough balls and then put them in the freezer for at least 30 minutes. At this point you can either dip the balls in chocolate, or put them in a Ziplock bag and back in the freezer to dip later.
Melt some chocolate almond bark in the microwave and then get read to dip! I used sucker sticks in these balls, but you could certainly go without. We dipped the end of the stick in the chocolate and then inserted the stick into the dough ball. Then dip the ball half way into the chocolate. Of course you could dip the ball all the way, but I like the way these look with some of the chocolate chips showing through.
Store the truffles in an airtight container in the fridge.
