Cookie Dough Truffles

This is a yummy Paula Deen recipe. I saw her make these the other day and I had to try them! I made them for Weiser's Steel Magnolias Testimony!

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup semisweet mini chocolate morsels
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1 1/2 pounds chocolate bark candy coating, melted

In a large bowl cream butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer at medium speed until creamy. Add vanilla. Gradually beat in flour and add milk. Add chocolate morsels and pecans, mixing well.
Shape into 1-inch balls. Place on waxed paper; chill 2 hours.
*Cook's Note: Since the dough is sticky, roll your fingers into flour. This will make it easier to roll. (I did not do this...I used this handy small ice cream scoop and kept clean hands...Paula needs this tip!)

Into the refrigerator for 2 hours...

Melt chocolate bark candy coating in a double boiler. Using 2 forks, dip cookie balls into candy coating to cover. Place on waxed paper and chill to set. Store in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

I started to run out of chocolate towards the end so some of them look a little messy and uncovered. Also, I topped them off with some of the extra pecans I had left.
