Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles and Dip recipe?

Chocolate chips, the mini kind, in a smooth dough…As I awakened the thought of  Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles made with a recipe similar to the recent Strawberries and Cream Cookie Dip welled up into my conscious thoughts and my eyes popped open and my feet hit the floor.  Still sitting on the edge of the bed, I realized that there was a refinement I could make to my recent recipe and a slightly different, and easier approach in making it.

So what did I do?  Well, I didn’t march into the kitchen before breakfast and make this stuff. Nope.  I remained sane.  I shrugged into my yoga togs and toddled out the door for an hour of  what is actually enjoyable movement if I can coerce my sleepy body and brain to go to the class.  However thoughts of

were percolating in the back of my head while in Down Dog and Cobra. (But not Plank Position….my mind went blank with the strain of hovering an inch above the floor…oof.)

Upon arriving home, I threw an apron over my exercise clothes and without charging  upstairs to my office to grab a copy of the recipe for Strawberries and Cream Cookie Dip, I grabbed a saucepan and the ingredients and made  the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip. I was excited to try this as I love recipes that are flexible and this one was a ‘twofer’.  It took less than 20 minutes to make the dip, which includes a 10 minute resting period for the batter.

I served a sample with apple slices to my husband, Tracy,(at his keyboard, writing, writing, writing,) and he loved it.  I snapped a few pictures of this yummy stuff in it’s dip form and then took the rest that had been chilling and formed it into tablespoon-sized balls and popped them into the freezer.  Two hours later the truffles were ready to be en-robed in chocolate.  I used a dark chocolate to dip them in, though you could use any type of chocolate or candy melts which appeal.

This new recipe with it’s saucepan method improves the smoothness and overall taste of Cookie Dip.  Oddly a small omission / mistake improved the taste and texture.  Because I wasn’t looking at my other recipe, I accidentally omitted one of the ingredients and I think it is a definite improvement.  What did I forget?  The powdered sugar.  It turns out that it was completely unnecessary.  I love it when accidents in the kitchen are happy ones.  I promise to revamp the ‘Strawberries’ recipe soon to reflect the improvements I’ve made here.  Surprise your guests or family by serving Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles (and Dip) at your next gathering for dessert, along with apple slices and pretzels. Yumbly.
