Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles
1/3 c. butter, softened
1/3 c. brown sugar, packed
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1 c. flour
1 c. mini chocolate chips
4 oz. dark or semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
4 oz. chocolate candy coating, chopped
1 Tbsp. shortening
Beat butter, sugar and vanilla till smooth. Add flour and beat till combined (this will look very crumbly, SO wish I had a picture). Stir in chocolate chips. Press into 1" balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Freeze 30 minutes or until firm.
Melt chocolates and shortening over low heat until smooth.
Dip frozen balls into melted chocolate and place back on prepared baking sheet ( I used a corn holder for this, but you could use a skewer or a fork. The balls are very firm and need to be, so a toothpick probably won't work). Chill 30 minutes or until set. Use remaining chocolate (I had to pop it in the microwave to re-melt it) to drizzle over top. Store in fridge.
