Cookie Dough Truffles

I have been making these for 3 years. The Man, The Stepson, and friends all snarf them down.

Cookie Dough Truffles

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour (I am not attempting to make these GF this year)
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 1/2 pounds semisweet chocolate chips
Shortening for consistency

In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the flour, milk and vanilla; mix weel. Stir in the mini chocolate chips. Shape into 1" balls; place on wax paper-lined baking sheets. Loosely cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until firm.

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips, stirring often until smooth. Add enough shortening to make the chocolate "drippy." Dip the balls in the chocolate; place on wax paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes. Store in the fridge.
