Cookie Dough Truffles

I adapted this recipe from a Taste of Home magazine. These were a huge hit at the party I brought them too. I like to dip them in melted chocolate chips but candy coat would work well too, or a mixture of half of each.-Sarah

1 stick butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup flour
1 t. salt
14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
2 cups chocolate chips
1 T. shortening
  • Cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla and salt. Gradually add flour, alternating with sweetened condensed milk, beating well after each addition. Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts.
  • Shape into balls and on waxed paper covered baking sheets. Refrigerate 1-2 hours until firm.
  • In microwave melt chocolate chips with shortening, stirring until smooth.
  • Dip balls and refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes.
