Drool (and I'm not even talking about Milo's)

A few days ago I made chocolate chip cookie dough truffles, just because I read about them and wanted to make them. Correction: I wanted to eat them. And the only way I was going to get to eat them was if I made them. So I did.
They were very good. Very, very good. If you would like to eat them, too, you should invite me to a party. The sort of party where guests are expected to bring snacks, that is. These truffles were so good, Andrew and I ate about ten of them in two days. This may not sound like a lot, but our scale disagrees.
So we did what reasonable people who want to be reasonably healthy do. Andrew took them* to work where other reasonable people who want to be reasonably healthy lost control, realized they had no willpower, and ate them all before it was even time for lunch.

*Shhh, don't tell Andrew, but I totally stuck a few of the truffles in the freezer to save for later, when I desperately need a cookie dough fix.

You are hereby invited to my next party. And the one after that.

I love those things! I only make them once a year for our annual holiday party, otherwise I'd be the size of a house. They're always a huge hit. If you really want to take it over the top, you can make the cookie dough part and put it in the center of a cupcake and top it with cookie dough buttercream. AMAZING. I'm putting them into a cheesecake bar this weekend. The possibilities are endless!

Um, I'm sure it was just an oversight, but you did not give the recipe in your post! Because I would totally invite you to a party, only you'd get home kind of late, you know? So I might just want to make them for myself.

I agree with Courtney---where is the recipe? Your chocoholic mother is feeling a chocolate attack coming on.
