Valentines day is just around the corner! Do you have a little something for your Valentine? — I hear so many negative comments about Valentine’s Day, but I’ve never been a “hater” whether I’ve had a Valentine, or not. It’s just about acknowledging the ones you “love/like” which ever the case may be. So don’t be a hater of the heart day. Just make or do a little “extra” for someone. It’s not about you, but someone else. Okay, on to the sweets. . . I searched for this recipe specifically for a friend of mine that I’ve know most of my life, well at least since the 3rd grade. She loves my chocolate chip cookies, so I made her a batch when I had visited her a few weeks ago. I baked a dozen cookies and placed rest of the pre-formed dough balls in the freezer so she could bake them at her leisure. But what I found out is that she didn’t bake any of the them but simply ate the frozen dough! Now, I like cookie dough too, but not enough to eat the whole batch of cookies within two weeks! So, I took a quick survey and found that many people like just eating the chocolate chip cookie dough straight out of the refrigerator or freezer, more than the baked cookie itself!
There’s even a company that has produced a cookie dough that can be baked into cookies and also promotes the dough to be eaten “raw” right out of the container. The dough is safe to eat as it doesn’t contain raw eggs. You can find this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough at Costco. Or you can simply, and inexpensively make your own chocolate chip cookie dough, without eggs, and turn it into a delicious little truffle by adding a chocolate coating – and voila, a Chocolate Chip Cookie Truffle!
So, what better recipe than this Chocolate Chip Cookie Truffles recipe for my dough-eating friend. The recipe is so quick and easy and tastes just like the chocolate chip cookie dough. It’s a perfect Valentine gift for your special someone, classroom or office co-workers. With a little extra attention to packaging, perhaps a cello bag, tag and little red or pink bow, these truffles are a perfect confection for more than just Valentine’s Day!
