My baker friends and I had a Valentine’s Day Fun Shoot, where we get together and create new things just for the heck of it. For photos of the shoot, just click the following link: http://www.carmelasjournal.com/valentines-with-friends/
I made these cute Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles because who doesn’t like COOKIE DOUGH and CHOCOLATE!!
I fell in love with cookie dough when I tried my first pint of Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream! Always tempted to eat cookie dough but afraid of consuming raw egg and flour. In this recipe, there is no egg and I toast the flour just like when making Polvoron ( a Filipino snack made with toasted flour and milk powder). Cooking the flour adds a nice nutty flavor to the cookie dough. I also add milk powder for an extra vanilla flavor to the recipe and creamy texture.
Looking for something different for Valentine’s Day? Why not try these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles!
