These are a great summer dessert, although I had to make some for Christmas for my husband’s little brother! They are light and tasty and simple to make.
To start, you will need:
- 1/2 c. softened butter
- 3/4 c. packed light brown sugar
- 2 c. flour
- 1 (14 oz.) can of sweetened condensed milk
- 1 t. vanilla extract
- about 1/2 c. of semi-sweet chocolate chips PLUS 24 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 T. crisco
Begin by creaming the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the flour, milk, and vanilla. mix well. stir in the 1/2 c. of chocolate chips. Roll the dough into 1 to 2 inch balls and place on a wax paper-lined cookie sheet. Once, you have rolled all of the dough, places the balls in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.
After refrigeration, combine the 24 oz. of chocolate chips and crisco in a small saucepan over low-medium heat. Be careful to not let the burner get too hot and remember to stir frequently. If you have a double broiler, then you could use that instead. Once the chips have melted, use a spoon to drop each ball into the chocolate mix. Roll around to coat then place back onto the cookie sheet. After dipping all of the balls, place the cookie sheet back into the refrigerator. The shell should harden in about 30 minutes. Then enjoy!
