sweet*, originally uploaded by Jen likes to snap pics*.
I had the day off from work today and decided to try out a recipe from the Taste of Home Cooking School that a friend and I went to back in October. They turned out pretty good. They are a very sweet treat. I made mine with a cookie scooper that I have. They are too big. I'd make them smaller next time.

The recipe can be found here.

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon Spice Island® Pure Vanilla Extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1-1/2 pounds dark chocolate candy coating, coarsely chopped
In a large bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Gradually add flour, alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Shape into 1-in. balls; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Loosely cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until firm.
In a microwave bowl, melt candy coating; stir until smooth. Dip balls in coating; allow excess to drip off; Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes. If desired, remelt remaining candy coating and drizzle over candies. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 5-1/2 dozen.
