Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

A good excuse to eat raw cookie dough covered in chocolate!

Ingredients:

1 c. softened margarine or butter
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. firmly packed brown sugar
2 t. vanilla
1/4 t. salt
2 c. flour
1 (6 oz. pkg) semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life Chips--they are mini-sized)
2-3 T. water (optional, as needed)
Coating:
1 (12 oz. pkg) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 T. Bakers Paraffin (optional)

Directions:

In a large bowl, beat margarine and sugars until fluffy. Add vanilla and mix well. Mix in flour and salt until well blended. Batter will be stiff. Stir in chocolate chips. Only add water if it\'s too stiff to
mix, and use sparingly.

Form dough into 1\" balls and refrigerate for at least an hour.

In a double boiler, melt the chocolate chips and paraffin together. Using two spoons, roll the chilled dough balls into the melted chocolate and place in truffle cups (or mini-muffin papers). Makes about 52 pieces. Delicious!
