You all know from my blog title that I’m into fudge. So when I stumbled upon a fudge recipe of the CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DOUGH variety? Let’s just say I was excited. And it tastes JUST like the real deal. Without raw eggs. And with amazing texture. When Steve came home and I stuck a piece in his mouth, his words were, “Cookie dough? This is dangerous. Marry me again.”
1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons half-and-half (Or milk—I used 2%)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsalted butter
1/3 cup light brown sugar
pinch of salt
1/3 cup half-and-half (Or milk—I used 2% again)
4 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (store in the freezer up until the last step of the recipe)
Line an 8x8 baking dish with foil.
For the cookie dough, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar with a hand mixer or stand mixer on medium speed. Beat until it is a light and fluffy texture.
Add the vanilla, salt, and half-and-half (or milk). Then slowly beat in the flour until it’s combined, but not overmixed.
For the fudge base, put butter, brown sugar, salt and half-and-half (or milk) in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Once the butter is melted and the brown sugar has dissolved, remove the pan from the heat.
Now begin incorporating the powdered sugar, one cup at a time until it’s well-mixed. If 4 cups doesn’t seem like it is thick enough, you can add a 5th cup to make it firmer. (I only needed to use 4). Add the vanilla and stir.
Next, stir the cookie dough into the fudge base. Mix it well while it reaches room temperature. Then add the mini chocolate chip that you’ve been keeping in the freezer. (If they’re not cold, they may melt in the fudge and become a chocolate swirl.)
Spread the fudge into the baking dish. Chill for 3-4 hours until set. Cut into squares. Keep it refrigerated for up to one week.
So heavenly… enjoy!!
