Cookie Dough Balls

I love cookie dough batter.  I think I like it better than the cookies!  When we hosted a potluck dinner for our friends, my friend Tara brought these.  Oh so good.  I requested the recipe and she gave it to me (very promptly I might add!).  Last Sunday I didn't have any eggs, so it was a great time to make these delicious babies!  Hanna...these are peanut free.....

Thanks Tara!!!

We each got four cookie dough balls, plus two of us (I wonder who...) had a couple extra, ha ha.  The recipe yielded at least 32 balls.  You could make more balls using less dough per ball, of course.

Cookie Dough Balls
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 TBLS milk
1 TBLS vanilla
1 1/3 cup flour
2/3 cup chocolate chips, mini chips work great to (that is what I used because I actually had some on hand)

Mix all ingredients well then refrigerate until hardened enough to roll into a ball.

Dip half of ball into chocolate and put on wax paper then refrigerate.

Chocolate Dip Coating
2 cups chocolate chips (I used fewer chocolate chips...maybe 3/4 of a cup? You can always melt more...and I had left over melted chocolate which I happily ate)
1 TBLS shortening (I didn't use this much shortening...maybe 1 1/2 tsp?)

Melt in microwave and stir
