When I saw this recipe for chocolate chip cookie dough truffles, I knew I had to try it.

And they are everything I hoped they would be. I made the filling days ago, but ran out of chocolate so I just kept the balls in the freezer until I was able to finish the job tonight. By the way, the balls keep fine in the freezer, and if you're lazy they make a fine snack all on their own since they don't freeze solid you can eat them straight from the freezer. Don't ask me how I know this ;-).

The recipe (linked above) is straightforward and easy to make with pantry staples. If I made a large batch, I'd only keep them in the refrigerator for a week or so at most, but seriously, the original blogger is right in saying that you won't have to worry about it because no matter how many you have, they will all be consumed in a matter of days.

Which is why the next time I make these (and there WILL be a next time), I'll immediately put at least half of them directly in the freezer. There they'd probably stay fresh at least a month or more. And if I put them waaaay, waaay, down at the bottom of the chest freezer, there is a chance I will only take them out when I really, really, want some, rather than just eating one every time I walk past the refrigerator.

Actually, I've found an easier solution already. I just ate so many while I was making them that I gave myself a tummy ache. Now I really don't have an appetite for any more, and I think it will be a day or two before I'd want to gorge on them again. . .

Without further ado, here's a photo:
