Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge
Although I do really love a good cookie, there's something about cookie dough that is SO much better. I love cookie dough! In my ice cream, in my cupcakes, and definitely in my fudge.
This tasty treat is suuuuper sweet and perfect in small quantities. It would pair wonderfully with a cup of coffee or a glass of milk. And a major plus is that there's no baking involved. It's just mixing stuff together and sticking it in the fridge!
Don't let the terrible photo fool you, this is a dessert that everybody will want to try!
What You'll Need:
1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
2 tbsp heavy cream
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/3 cup unsalted butter
pinch of salt
1/3 cup heavy cream
4 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips
What To Do:
Line an 8x8 baking pan with aluminum foil and set aside.
To prepare cookie dough: combine butter and sugars in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on medium speed until it is light and fluffy. Mix in vanilla, salt, and cream. Add flour and mix until just combined, being careful not to overmix. Set aside.
To prepare fudge: in a medium saucepan, combine brown sugar, butter, salt and cream. Stir over medium heat until the butter is melted and the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and slowly stir in powdered sugar, a little at a time, until the mixture is smooth and well incorporated. Stir in vanilla. Add more powdered sugar as necessary for taste and texture (the more sugar, the sweeter and firmer the fudge will be).
Add cookie dough to the fudge base and stir to combine. Ensure that the mixture is at room temperature before stirring in the chocolate chips. Once combined, spread fudge into the prepared pan. Chill for four hours or until set. Cut into squares and enjoy with a glass of milk!
