Yes, cookie dough truffles have been done before but mine are a little different because the recipe calls for an entire cake mix, which makes the whole process a little easier. Or maybe just in theory. I'm not really sure about this because regular cookie dough truffles are not hard to begin with. But I think utilizing a cake mix has a psychological effect on the brain that says "you will have that dough whipped up in no time, monkey."
These made my family so happy. I had some really uplifting moments during my consumption, too.
Here are my notes:
-These are super sweet, probably due to the cake mix, brown sugar, and sweetened condensed milk, which is not a problem for me, but may be a problem for you.
-I like mini chips. Gosh they are fun.
-Yes, you will have some sweetened condensed milk left over and that will bother some people. I stuck mine if the fridge, but I am contemplating making another batch. That would use it up. But I don't know. These are really a temptation to me. We'll see.
1/2 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1 (18.25-ounce) box yellow cake mix (I used Duncan Hines Butter Golden)
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 cup mini chocolate chips
Chocolate bark for dipping
Beat together the butter, cake mix, sweetened condensed milk, and light brown sugar until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a wax paper lined baking sheet. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
