Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles


I love cookie dough! As a kid, my mom (who is a nurse) would tell us all the horrible things that could happen to us if we ate the cookie dough full of raw eggs. I sneaked bites anyway. When my best friend and I broke up with our high-school boyfriends, we sat with a tub of raw cookie dough and ate the entire thing with spoons while we cried and watched "Message in a Bottle". I didn't die. As a mature adult, I've been known to lick the occasional beater after making cookies (with my mother's voice ringing in my head the whole time!). It's never made me sick.
But now I'm a mom of a toddler. And 9 months pregnant. So in an effort to be more responsible, when I got the craving for cookie dough the other day I found this recipe and made it for my adorable 2 year old and myself. And there was much rejoicing! And because I needed a dessert to bring to a girl's night event at church, I dipped them in chocolate and called them truffles. And there was more rejoicing. What else can you do with edible cookie dough? Put it in ice cream, stick it inside cupcakes, put it in brownies, or fudge... or just grab a darn spoon and dig in! I'm sure you'll think of something. Enjoy! :)
