Cookie dough truffels

I bought a new baking book a few weeks ago and now I have finally taken the time to bake something out of it. Cookie dough is something, which I think we can agree on, is absolutely wonderful, and should be included in everything, and that is what this book is about, cookie dough galore. The book is called, appropriately enough, "the cookie dough lover's cookbook" and is written by Lindsay Landis.

Cookie dough truffles
½ cup butter, room temperature
1/4 cup granulated sugar
½ cup light brown sugar, packed
2 tbsp milk or cream
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
½ tsp salt
½ cup min semisweet chocolate chips

200 g chocolate for the coating

Beat butter and sugar in a bowl until it is fluffy. Mix in the milk / cream and vanilla extract. Stir in flour and salt and mix until all the ingredients form a smooth dough. Stir in chocolate chips. Let the dough rest in the fridge for half an hour until it is firm enough to handle.

When the dough has rested, divide the dough into small pieces and roll them into balls about 3 cm in diameter. Then set them in the freezer for 15 minutes. While the cookie dough cools, melt the chocolate and set up a plate covered with parchment paper. I used a mix of light and dark baking chocolate which I melted in a water bath. Remove the cookie dough from the freezer and dip them in the chocolate with the help of a fork.
