This is a treat that my girls (and their friends) loved! I liked it, but fudge is always a bit too sweet for me (I know, shocker.) I think this fudge is a little bit different because it does kind of taste like you are eating actual cookie dough….and that is never a bad thing in my book:-).
Speaking of things Ella and Taylor loved – take a look at this video – “20 Things We Should Say More Often.” Love it!! This little guy is adorable and what a great message. They watched this in Sunday School this morning and both of them were talking about the corndogs on the ride home. I think they absorbed the rest of the messages, but they thought the corndog bit was too funny.
I think I am really good about saying “please” and “thank you” and as a mom I am always concerned that I am not enforcing these same manners as much with my girls as my mom did with us. If we didn’t say please she would come back at us with “what’s the magic word??” When my kids don’t say please or thank you to other people I cringe, but I’m really not as good about enforcing it as my mom was with us. Anyways, this video might help a little bit.
BTW, my girls probably do better with this than I am making it seem.
So, PLEASE enjoy this fudge. If you are a fudge fan or a cookie dough fan you will love it. It really is pretty easy to make although there are two steps since you are making fudge + cookie dough.
Oh yes…Thank you for reading and here is a surprise corndog I bought you because you’re my friend!! (watch the video….)
- ½ cup butter, room temperature
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- ¼ cup brown sugar, packed
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons half and half
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- ⅓ cup brown sugar, packed
- ⅓ cup butter
- pinch of salt
- ⅓ cup half and half
- 4-5 cups powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ½ cup mini chocolate chips
- Line an 8×8 baking dish with foil, leaving a 1 inch overhang. Spray with cooking spray.
- For the cookie dough, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the vanilla, salt, half and half and flour. Mix until combined. Set aside.
- To make the fudge, add the brown sugar, butter, salt and half and half to a saucepan and stir over medium low heat until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves. Remove the fudge from the heat and carefully stir in the powdered sugar a cup at a time. Mix until the fudge is smooth and completely combined. Stir in the mini vanilla.
- Add the cookie dough to the fudge base and stir to combine. Mix in the chocolate chips.
- Spread the mixture in the prepared baking dish. Chill until set, at least 3 hours but I thought it was set when it had a chance to chill in the fridge overnight. After it had partially set I covered with saran wrap.
