Cookie Dough Truffles



Cookie Dough Truffles by Paula Dean

I love Paula, she makes me want to go around talking in a southern accent. I am making these for the girls I visit teach today, hopefully I have the will power to not eat them all, but they look too good not to share!

Ingredients

* 1/2 cup butter, softened
* 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
* 1/2 cup semisweet mini chocolate morsels
* 1 cup finely chopped pecans
* 1 1/2 pounds chocolate bark candy coating, melted

Directions

In a large bowl cream butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer at medium speed until creamy. Add vanilla. Gradually beat in flour and add milk. Add chocolate morsels and pecans, mixing well. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place on waxed paper; chill 2 hours.

*Cook's Note: Since the dough is sticky, roll your fingers into flour. This will make it easier to roll.

Melt chocolate bark candy coating in a double boiler. Using 2 forks, dip cookie balls into candy coating to cover. Place on waxed paper and chill to set. Store in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
