So I saw an amazing idea on Chef in Training, cookie dough truffles! Yum! Because it was a dough she substituted egg for condensed milk. I tried out the recipe but only had evaporated milk.
Apparently they are NOT the same. I ended up with a runny mixture that never set (though tasted nice).
So I just used my normal cookie recipe and used a fudgey coating.
Please note though, this recipe does contain raw egg. I don't mind as my kids are at an age where they eat a lot of any mixture we make and they only have one at a time. But maybe check out this one if you want an egg free version.
8oz plain flour
4oz brown sugar
7oz chocolate chips
Once all mixed together roll into small balls and set aside.
Melt in a bowl:
Approx. 200g plain chocolate
a can of condensed milk (can also use a little less of double cream or evaporated milk, but add gradually!)
Just adjust according to how thick you want it.
Once it is cooled dip in the truffles and coat, then set aside on grease proof paper or a silicone tin or anything else non-stick.
Good news? You should have enough cookie balls left to do a tray of cookies. (8 mins at 180 degrees C) So that if you were making these for someone else you can keep the truffles for yourself and give them the cookies. :) (you're welcome!)
Let set in the fridge, then eat!
In fact, we were going to a friends house for a play date the next day. After dinner when we'd all had one I asked the kids if we should take some over to their friend's house.
No sooner had the words left my mouth that simultaneously Andy, Izzy and even one-year-old Ethan all yelled "No!". (slightly muffled though as they were still munching.)
And yes, Izzy styles her own hair, and if you're wondering she will do other's too, you just need an appointment. In fact just the other day she did mine with not only five different types of clips, but also a tiara.
I know, you're jealous.
