Step 1: Ingredients
3/4 Cup White Sugar
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Stick of Butter, Softened
1/3 Cup Milk
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
2 1/2 Cups Flour
1 Cup Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Peanut Butter Chips
1 Cup Chopped Almonds (or other nut)
Step 2: A Sweet Start
Add the vanilla and milk to the sugar/butter mixture and lightly blend by hand.
Step 3: Flour and More
This is the optional part... Now is a good time to add in anything you want to be in the dough such as chocolate chips or nuts.
While you are waiting, you can clean the dough off of the beaters/spoon. Don't be afraid to eat it; remember, there are no raw eggs!
When you are done with that, line a cookie sheet with wax paper and wait patiently.
Step 5: Frozen Dough Balls!
Form one inch balls with the dough and place on the cookie sheet. The size of the balls can vary, but be careful not to make them too big.
When this is done, place the cookie sheet in the freezer for an additional 30 minutes. ( I know, I know - go check your email or something) Trust me, you want these things to be pretty cold for the next step.
Step 6: My Coat is Made of Chocolate
Next, dip each ball into the molten chocolate and return it to the cookie sheet. I suggest using a fork or a pair of toothpicks to dip the balls and place them on the cookie sheet.
When you are done, return the cookie sheet(s) to the freezer to harden the chocolate coating. The truffles can then be kept in the refrigerator until they are all gone - trust me, they will be eaten long before they go bad!
