If you are a cookie dough fanatic, you are going to be obsessed with this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge! It's easy to make and great for sharing with friends!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge
If you haven't noticed, I've been on a bit of a cookie dough kick here lately. What started as a mix-in for chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream turned into making all sorts of cookie dough-inspired treats like this chocolate chip cookie dough fudge. I've got a few more ideas that I'm working on as well that will hopefully be coming to the blog soon!
While eating raw cookie dough may be tempting, for safety reasons it isn't a great idea. So when you crave the taste of a big scoop of cookie dough, here's another way to indulge without the worry. Our easy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge tastes just like your favorite cookie dough in fudge form. So feel free to sample away!
How to make chocolate chip cookie dough fudge
Start with the edible cookie dough. Heat treated flour and no eggs make this stuff safe for worry-free consumption. Other than those tweaks and eliminating the baking soda, which isn't needed for lift since we aren't baking this cookie dough after all, this is the same routine as making any chocolate chip cookies. Plus, we are holding the chocolate chips in reserve since adding them to this recipe too early can result in disaster for your cookie dough fudge.
Beat the butter and sugars, add a little vanilla and salt, mix in the flour and some milk and you're almost good to go! Of course, you could just eat this with a spoon, but let's be civilized and turn it into easier-to-share squares of fudge, shall we?
That's done by adding sweetened condensed milk that has been heated with white chocolate chips until the melted and combined.
The melted white chocolate chip mixture gets mixed into the cookie dough base. Then frozen mini chocolate chips are added in.
It's important to freeze the mini chocolate chips first so they don't immediately melt and streak the fudge. Just fold them in by using a large rubber spatula to turn the soft fudge base over itself a few times. They should disperse through the fudge quickly and easily.
Then just pour the fudge into a square pan lined with parchment paper or foil. It's so much easier to lift the fudge out of the pan and slice it into squares once it has set in the fridge for a few hours. I can get much straighter lines that way and it makes for easy clean up.
I like to sprinkle a few additional mini chocolate chips right on top of the fudge right after I have poured it and gently tap them down into the fudge before it sets.
Once the fudge has firmed up in the fridge, you can slice the squares and share with friends. Or wrap up the fudge and freeze it so you always have a treat on hand! Just be sure to keep the sliced fudge wrapped tightly in plastic wrap so it doesn't dry out and get crusty.
