25 Days of Christmas, Day 14: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

We awoke this morning to this...


After spending half an hour shoveling the back porch, and an additional ten minutes contemplating just how long it would take to shovel the sidewalk and driveway;  Hugh disappeared.

He returned with this...


It....wasn't cheap. Also, merely purchasing the gizmo practically guarantees that we will have a dry rest of the winter. Actually, if it never snows in Colorado again; we will all have Hugh to blame for it.

One thing I can't blame Hugh for is the rapid disappearance of the truffles that I made for Christmas, for that; I blame the kids.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles


1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups flour
1 Tbsp. water
6 ounces miniature chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugar together. Add remaining ingredients and mix well by hand. Roll dough into bite-sized balls and freeze until firm. Let stand at room temperature  for 5 minutes before eating (unless you are my children in which case you will risk chipping a tooth by eating them immediately out of the freezer. While hiding the fact from your mother. And, hiding in a closet. True story).
