 Some days just call for cookie dough.   Other days call for peanut butter cups.  Then there are days that you put the two together, and you realize that these are your new favorite treat.

I ate way too many of these little bites of awesomeness ;-)

 Some days during the summer it is too hot to make cookies, but we still like to have cookies on hand.  No egg cookie dough truffles are the answer to that first world problem.

 This chocolate cookie dough was delicious on it’s own, but then the candy in the cupboard started talking to me.  I kept hearing voices saying “pick me” and “I want to be part of those truffles”

I had to listen to the candy voices.  They get me every single time.  As soon as I opened the door to the cupboard, the peanut butter cups won hands done.  Chocolate and peanut butter…it’s a match that just can’t be equaled.

 I decided to dip the chocolate truffles in white CandiQuik.  But feel free to use whatever flavor you like or have on hand.  Chocolate on chocolate would be pretty awesome too.

Drizzle some melted peanut butter and chocolate chips on top to make it pretty…and to hide the toothpick holes.

I find that toothpicks are the easiest way to dip truffles.  Refrigerate the truffles for at least 30 minutes.  Stab them with toothpicks and dip in melted chocolate.  I also use a spoon to pour more chocolate over the truffles.  This way I can make sure the truffle is completely coated.  Place the truffle on a wax paper lined tray and let set slightly before taking out the toothpick.  If you remove it too soon, it will get the chocolate from the bottom spread out too much.  After the chocolate is set completely, add your drizzles to make them pretty.  Then go to town eating them.

I ate way too many of these bad boys the other day.  I think another batch is in order very, very soon.  Just don’t tell my jeans what I am planning.  I don’t think they are very happy with my “dieting” plans.

    I was reading this post when my 20 yr old son walked into the room. He looked at the top photo and told me (not asked me), “You ARE going to make those.” :) Actually, I will buy the ingredients and he will do the making, but we ARE going to make these. :) Thanks, Jocelyn!
