No fruit required.
Is your mouth watering yet? If not, it will be.

The ingenious folks at The Village Cook whipped up a dessert that I knew was sure to please the masses. Even better, these bite size bits of heaven can be made on the cheap and incredibly quick. Let's get to it.


  • 1/2 cup softened salted butter
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 (14oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 12 oz. Semi-Sweet chocolate chips

Goodbye waistline. Hello Jenny Craig.
This could easily be one of my new culinary staples in the dessert department just because it requires almost no work, not even baking!

-In a mixing bowl, combine softened butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and condensed milk.

-Add in flour and mini chocolate chips, mixing until smooth

-Unless by divine miracle your dough is ready for rolling and dipping right out of the gate, refrigerate for an hour or so

--When you're ready, remove the dough from aforementioned refrigeration unit--

-Roll the dough into walnut sized balls, but you can go bigger if desired. Place on an ungreased baking sheet.

-Melt 12oz. semi-sweet chips & 1 tbs. butter in a microwave safe bowl, heating in 10 second intervals...stir constantly! your chocolate will 'seize up' if you get the chocolate too hot...aka RUINED chocolate ='[

-Once your dipping 'sauce' is good to go, you have a couple of options. I personally tried sticking the dough balls with a tooth pick and dipping, but since my chocolate wasn't as pliable (too much heating...but not ruined!), i just rolled it around in the bowl. It worked out just fine. Otherwise, add the dipping sauce to a freezer bag and shake up the cookie dough balls inside.

*Cue salivation
Once you've given your treats a good roll around, set them back on the cookie sheet or whatever you put them on.

The original recipe called for using some of the melted chocolate to make em look extra-awesome. Me...well I opted for a different path.

I took some cinnamon and dusted these bad boys for a nice bit of color and flavor, but the choice is yours.

In summary, this made a batch of about 30 small hand-grenades, not including ones that 'disappeared' in the process. Anyway, I don't expect these to last long because they taste so damn good!! Try these today and be sure to check back tomorrow for something extra tasty!
