Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge #recipe by bunsinmyoven.com

Guys. I know.

You’re thinking fudge is a Christmas thing.

Well, I’m here to tell you that isn’t true. You can make and eat fudge any time of year. I mean, you’re an adult. You make the rules.

I thought this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge from The Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook (love this book!) would be pretty much perfect for Valentine’s Day. Or a Tuesday. Or a Sunday. Or a…well, yeah. Any day. I mean, fudge is fudge. Just enjoy it.

You’ll notice this recipe says to use 4 to 5 cups of powdered sugar. The texture of the fudge will change depending on how much sugar you use. If you’d like a firmer fudge that you can serve at room temperature, use the full 5 cups. If you’d like a softer fudge that isn’t quite as sweet, use 4 cups and serve it straight from the fridge.

Ingredients:

For the cookie dough:

1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons half and half

    What should the texture be besides smooth when making the fudge mixture?

    @Krystal,

    It will be somewhat thick. You can make it thicker and firmer by adding more powdered sugar.

    Could you make the cookie dough before and freeze it and then use that?

    I just found this and it looks delicious! Did you use salted or unsalted butter?

    @Camille,
    I have not made this Cookie dough fudge.
    The recipe uses salt in the dough and the fudge.
    I always use unsalted butter unless other wise stated.
    Hope this helps.

    What is ‘half and half’ on the ingredients list?

    @Helen,

    It’s a cream that has a lower percentage of fat than heavy whipping cream. I purchase it near the heavy cream in the dairy aisle at my store.
