I recently stumbled across what I will call the world’s best dessert over at A Whisk and a Prayer. I have served it twice and by the reactions I have received at both occasions and from my family, I say I am not alone in my feelings.
Do yourself a favor, go to the store NOW, and get the ingredients to make this super easy yummy dessert!
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups brown sugar/ plus some additional for the sprinkles on top
1/2 cup sugar
8 Tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 cups old fashioned oats
3/4 cup raisins
2 package Candiquick White Chocolate (or any quality melting chocolate). Target carries Candiquick in the baking aisle.
Mix all ingredients except raisins in mixing bowl. Place in freezer for 30 minutes. Remove from freezer and add raisins. I mixed them in with my hands.
Once mixed, make about 1 inch ball shapes and put back in freezer, to avoid getting to soft while you prepare the chocolate.
Follow package directions to melt Candiquick. Once melted dip the dough one at a time until covered. I place in tray and coat with a spoon. Once coated I pull out with tongs. I initially tried about 6 at a time, but found that they got too soft and lost shape from the hot chocolate. One at a time works best.
Place on parchment lined baking sheet. If necessary drizzle some chocolate on top to make sure all the sides are covered. You can coat about 3-4 and then sprinkle with sugar. Just be careful the chocolate doesn’t harden first.
Continue until complete and put into fridge.
Once hardened they are ready to serve. With Candiquick it takes about 30 minutes in the fridge to be ready.
Makes about 30 truffles.
There likely won’t be left overs, but if there are…store in refrigerator.
