Not pictured: My hands covered in chocolate, just out of frame. But more on that later.
Also, this is my first recipe in my new apartment! I moved about three weeks ago into a bigger place (read: bigger kitchen) with some friends, and I finally had some time to get some groceries and make a recipe last night.
So, this started out a pretty standard eggless cookie dough recipe. I actually think it’s one of the best ones I’ve ever tasted, so that was exciting.
But when it comes to these damn truffle recipes, the chocolate coating part is always my downfall.
I melted the chocolate and hoped for the best. I didn’t use shortening because I still have nightmares of that crap from when I worked at a cupcake shop in college.
And then the disaster started. I tried using a fork, as the recipe suggested, but it kept getting stuck in the dough. Then I tried a spoon method, that also did not go well. So I gave up and just started using my fingers. Much more effective. Also a lot more messy.
Then I didn’t do it quick enough and the frozen cookie dough balls started to soften in the chocolate. So, some have weird little bald spots.
But you know what? After all that, they still tasted pretty good. I’m also excited for these roommates because they have as big of a sweet tooth as me, so I know I’ll have more to share!
