Cookie Dough Truffles
1/2 cup (113 grams) organic salted butter, softened
85 grams (1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons) organic cane sugar
85 grams (1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons) organic packed dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon organic milk
255 grams (2 cups) organic all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
425 grams (3 cups) finely chopped organic milk chocolate
all natural chocolate and white sprinkles (like India Tree's Nature's Colors)
Method Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
To make the dough: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix on low until combined and there’s no butter chunks.
Add the milk, flour, and sea salt in that order. Mix on low until all ingredients are combined and you have a dough.
Using your hands, form the dough into 36 balls and place on prepared baking sheets. Place in the freezer for about 1 hour, or until firm.
To make the coating: In a double boiler, melt 340 grams (2 1/2 cups) of the milk chocolate until it reaches 110°F on a chocolate thermometer. Add in the remaining milk chocolate and stir until the temp comes down to 89°F.
Dip the cookie dough balls into the melted chocolate, using a fork so the excess chocolate can drip back into the bowl. Place on parchment paper. Place the baking sheets back in the freezer and let the chocolate harden. This should only take about 10 minutes.
Take the cookie dough balls back out of the freezer and dip again for a second time. This is what will get the thick chocolate coating. Place the dipped cookie dough balls back on the parchment paper and sprinkle the tops with sprinkles.
Store in a cool dry place, or in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
