Cookie Dough Truffles

28 Apr

A close cousin of the cake ball. I made these with my friend, Roxanne, who showed me cake balls in the first place and was staying the night here on her way home to South Florida. These are for cookie dough lovers (debateably the best part of making a cookie) They are made with condensed milk instead of eggs. I only made half batch because they always make a billion so I had extra condensed milk. I made a mini key lime pie with it hehehe.
