When you dunk the cookie dough balls into that creamy smooth pool of melted chocolate, everything seems right with the world. Like in “While You Were Sleeping” . . . you have a moment when things seem good in life. We may not have very many of those moments overall, but when you make these chocolates, you are darn near guaranteed one.
½ c butter, softened
¾ c brown sugar
1 t vanilla
2 c flour
1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
½ c miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 c milk chocolate chips
2 T shortening
Cream butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Gradually add flour, alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Stir in miniature chocolate chips. Refrigerate for at least an hour; longer if desired. Melt milk chocolate chips and shortening in mini crock pot or double boiler and stir until smooth. Using ¾-inch cookie scoop, scoop dough into round ball and immediately dip into chocolate. Drain off excess chocolate and let set on wax paper. Continue until dough is gone. Store in refrigerator in airtight container. Return to room temperature before serving if desired.
