Day 10: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge

I have this fudge recipe the Mr found for me about 10 years ago (ugh, really!?) and it's the most simple thing ever.  Literally a bag of chips and a can of condensed milk throw it in the microwave for 2 minutes and boom, done.  Yeah.  It tastes way better than most fudge that people spent 30 minutes making...or 60-90 minutes cursing depending on the recipe.  So how could I make something that tastes that good make a certain someone's eyes roll in the back of his head?

Put some chocolate chip cookie dough in it.  Now before anyone freaks out because chocolate chip cookie dough typically contains eggs, mine doesn't therefore it can't be baked into anything really.  I call it "eatin' dough"...which is not good to have around the house.  But I tried to reduce the recipe to as little as possible so there is no extra to have hanging around the house so the eatin' dough will have weird measurements but is well worth it.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge


12 oz bag semi sweet chocolate chips
1 can fat free sweetened condensed milk

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (aka-"eatin' dough")

4 tbsp flour (have extra on hand in case dough is sticky and needs a sprinkle)
2 tbsp butter, softened
6 tbsp sugar
6 tbsp brown sugar
1/8 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp almond milk
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Make the dough first.  Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl until dough comes together.  If dough is sticky, add a teaspoon of flour so it looks like normal cookie dough then chill for 10 minutes.  When dough is chilled, you can either roll out into an 8x8 sheet of dough so the dough is evenly distributed or you can roll into 18 balls of dough to be dropped randomly.  This needs to be done before the fudge is made because the fudge sets quickly.

In an 8x8 pan, line it with foil that comes about 6" over the sides of the pan.  Put a piece of wax paper cut to size on the bottom or give a little spray of cooking spray.  In a microwave safe bowl, pour the 12 oz bag of chocolate chips and the sweetened condensed milk and heat in the microwave for 2 minutes.  As soon as it's done, stir with a rubber spatula until glossy.  Then it's time to work quickly.  Spread enough fudge on the bottom of the pan to just cover it.  Then drop cookie dough sheet or balls in the pan, then spoon the rest of the fudge on top and spread evenly.  Cover with the foil sticking over the sides and then a piece of plastic wrap over the whole pan to ensure no foreign aromas from the fridge absorb as it chills.  Chill in fridge for at least 2 1/2 - 3 hours.  Cut into 36 pieces.  Lasts about 5 days refrigerated.  (If it makes it that long)

  1. Oh goodness! This has all the makings of being one of my favorites. Chocolate, cookie dough and fudge all wrapped into one easy recipe. A must try...ASAP.

  2. OMG, this looks AMAZING!!! Hubby is going to LOOOOVE this!

  3. Finally something I don't want to give my left arm for, I don't like fudge. Phew. ;) I wouldn't mind trying a piece though, just in case I like this one :p

  4. I've made that fudge recipe before and my husband loved it (I thought it was just ok... I needed more richness, less chew). But this version with cookie dough now really puts it over the top. I'd love to try it!

  5. Looks yummy! I've had a taste for fudge recently, but I'm beginning to think I might be better off just going to the confectioner's and buying a piece. Or two. :)
