Everyone asks, "Are you all ready for Christmas?" Not hardly. I don't know what's with me this year. I love Christmas and I don't care if I'm ready or not this year. We have NO snow. But that's alright with me, too. Almost everyone on my list is getting homemade this year, and it's not all done, but I think it will even if it takes a couple of 48 hour days.
I wanted to share with you one of my daughters' favorite candies. I try to make these at Christmas, usually a double batch. I LOVE cookie dough. Blizzards, ice cream and these candies.
Cookie Dough Truffles
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 cups flour (not whole wheat)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts ( I don't do walnuts)
1 1/2 pounds of semisweet chocolate candy coating (I just use almond bark.)
In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the flour, milk and vanilla, mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Shape into 1 inch balls ;place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Loosely cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt candy coating, stirring often until smooth. Dip balls in coating and place on waxed paper . Refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes. Store in fridge. Makes 4-5 dozen
Have a blessed Christmas. Remember what it is. God gave us grace and the ability to extend that grace to others when He sent His Son as a gift for us.
