Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

This past weekend I went to the Colonial Clash -which is when UMass plays UNH at Gillette Stadium (Go UMass!). I was put in charge of desserts for the tailgate. I decided that one of the items I was would bring would be these chocolate chip cookie dough truffles from eat.drink.smile:

I thought it might be cute to make these and shape them like little footballs. You start by making the dough. It's very similar to regular cookie dough just add milk instead of eggs.

Once the dough is mixed; cover and let chill in the fridge for 1 hour. When the dough has been chilled, shape the dough into one inch balls and place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper.

I decided to shape them into round balls and then some footballs. Once the dough is shaped, place it them in the freezer and chill for 30 minutes. Then it's time for my favorite part- dipping them in chocolate! This time I bought enough Baker's chocolate to cover all the truffles.

Once the dough is dipped, chill them in the fridge for about 30 minutes to set the chocolate. When the chocolate was set, I added some laces to the football shaped truffles.

The Verdict: These are AMAZING! One of the best finds I've seen on pinterest. Thank goodness, I was going to the tailgate because if I was left alone with these at home, I think I would have eaten them all.  Everyone at the game seemed to enjoy them as well. There were none left!

Things to consider: I don't really have anything to critique with this recipe. I will say you have to work fast when dipping the truffles in the chocolate. The longer the cookie dough is out, the harder it is to work with. It will start to fall apart as you dip it in the chocolate. Other then that, it's very simple and I wouldn't change a thing.

Enjoy and try not to eat them all yourself!
