Chocolate Chip Cookie dough truffles.....

Honestly, these are really, really good and you can immerse them completely and make truffles but I didn't have the patience. I needed to eat them right away!! Try these and they will put you in a happy place!!

1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup Greek yogurt (plain, thick yogurt)
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips, or couverture, melted for dipping

In the bowl of a stand mixer fit with a paddle attachment cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about three minutes in the machine. Beat in yogurt along with the vanilla extract and stir to combine.

Stir together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add all at once to the butter and sugar mixture and stir until incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips.

Scoop large spoonfuls or ice cream scoops onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Place in the freezer overnight or until frozen, at least three hours.

Melt chocolate. If there are any left to dip ;-) remove balls from the freezer and dip. Return to the lined cookie sheet and return to the freezer to harden. Serve cold from the freezer.
