Cookie Dough Truffles

It is New Year’s Eve here in this part of Canada.  For some of you it is already the start of a new year, Happy New Year to you!

We are spending a quiet night at home.  It is our tradition to stay at home, get takeout and watch a movie. This year we are getting Turkish food and watching the Lego Movie.  It doesn’t get any wilder than that for us.  We finally had a little snow, so tomorrow we are sledding before going to a friends for supper.

In the meantime, here is a recipe that we make every year.  Kids love it and they can help by rolling the balls.  There are no eggs, hence the dough is safe to eat.  It is also every easy and no bake.

In a mixing bowl cream together:

1/2 cup butter

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

Cream until light and fluffy.

Add:

2 cups flour

chill again until ready to dip in chocolate.

Melt a little over 1LB of semisweet candy coating (Merkins Wafers) or you can use straight up chocolate, but probably wont be as shiny and nice unless you are good at tempering chocolate.

I melted the wafers in the microwave heating and stirring until all melted. As you can see my fancy dipping and drizzling tools are forks.

I get about 1/2LB milk wafers as well for drizzling over the top.

All done and ready to eat.  Store in fridge.
