From the kitchen of Stephanie Knewasser.  These are
supposed to be stored in the refrigerator, but we think
they taste best frozen.  The egg- free cookie dough
center is coated in chocolate.
Cream until fluffy:
1/2 c butter
3/4 c packed brown sugar
Add:
2 c flour
1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 oz)
1 tsp vanilla
Add:
1/2 c mini chocolate chips
Roll into balls.
Place on cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
Loosely cover & refrigerate until firm
OR freeze an hour or so.

In microwave, melt:
milk chocolate candy wafers
or chocolate bark*

Dip balls into chocolate,
place on wax paper.
Refrigerate until firm.

Store in a sealed container in refrigerator or freezer.

Optional:  drizzle additional chocolate over top, then top
with sprinkles.

A note about almond bark coating:
Chocolate Bark can be difficult to find.  Look at grocery stores next to chocolate
chips.  I have found it at Sweetbay, Walmart, Kroger, Harris Teeter and Publix (at
Publix only near the holidays).  Despite the name, it contains no almond flavoring.  
It's ideal for coating because of the perfect smooth firm finish.  It's available in two
flavors, chocolate and white chocolate.
Don't have a
double boiler?  
Neither do I.  Put an
inch of water in a
pot.  Place a heat
proof bowl (I have
Pyrex) on top of it.  
Place chocolate in
the bowl.  Heat on
low.  Stir chocolate.  
Careful not to
overheat.
