Marbled Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge

Marbled Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge

Oh yes I did!  I made fudge and marbled it with edible (no-egg) chocolate chip cookie dough.  Mmmm!

Merry Christmas!  This is perfect fudge.  Actually, I would prefer some walnuts in the cookie dough as well.  I just always worry that some are either allergic or don’t like nuts, so I often leave them out when I’m making something that many people will be eating.  Walnuts would have really made this fudge though!  I came up with this idea myself, but I’m sure someone somewhere has probably already thought of it and done it.  I didn’t bother looking over the world wide web.  I just took two simple, often-used recipes and combined them to make this.  I’m not sure who the credit for the edible cookie dough goes to, but the fudge is from Eagle Brand as this is the simple sweetened condensed milk added to chocolate version of fudge. 

The cookie dough actually also has sweetened condensed milk in it as well, so I suppose credit for that also goes to Eagle Brand (though I didn’t find a recipe for it on their website). 

Marbled Cookie Dough Fudge Marbled Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge, by Katrina, Baking and Boys!


3 cups chocolate chips

1—14 ounce can fat free sweetened condensed milk (makes them healthy! ;))

dash of salt

1  1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Cookie Dough:

1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened

6 tablespoons packed light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup all purpose flour

1/8 teaspoon salt

7 ounces fat free sweetened condensed milk

1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips

1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts (optional)

Make the cookie dough first.  Beat together the butter and brown sugar until well mixed.  Add the vanilla and combine.  Add the flour and salt and beat just until combined.  Beat in the condensed milk then stir in the chocolate chips and the nuts, if using.  Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.  After the dough has chilled, take pieces of it and put them on waxed paper, about 20-30 pieces differing in sizes from about a teaspoon to a tablespoons.

For the fudge—line a 9 inch square pan with non-stick foil. Spray lightly with cooking spray. Set aside.  Melt the chocolate chips, salt, vanilla and sweetened condensed milk in a medium sized saucepan until smooth.  Spread half of the fudge in the bottom of the pan.  Dot the fudge with the cookie dough pieces.  Take a butter knife and swirl it around the cookie dough and fudge.  It won’t mix in totally and you don’t want it to.  Top it with the rest of the fudge and smooth the top.  Let chill for a couple hours.  Remove from foil and cut into desired sized pieces on a cutting board. 

Cookie Dough Fudge

(I actually made double the amount of cookie dough and only used about half of it for the fudge, so you could easily double it and make two batches of fudge.  I’m about to use the rest and add some walnuts to the leftover cookie dough first.)

Good stuff!

Another creative and delicious idea from you, using chocolate as the star component. This is a great idea for a combo, I haven't seen it before though you're probably right that its out there somewhere. I'm glad it tastes as good as it looks (I'll trust you on that).

Well, I've never seen it or heard of it being done, so maybe you do have an original.

I would have gone with the walnuts too!

Unknown said...

Oh MY! This looks some kind of good. Totally making this!

Lisa said...

That is totally the best of both worlds.

OMG...that is the most sinful, decadent fudge I've ever come across. Plus, it's so pretty with the marbeling. I don't eat fudge often because it's usually too sweet for bite is more than enough, but I keep thinking, as I look at your fudge,,

"I could eat a whole piece of that"

Another HIT by Katrina :)

Hi there!

I noticed your comment on Fallon's blog about Biscoff spread. I had never heard of it and lo! I walk into the grocery store tonight and it's sitting there. Do you have Albertson's where you live? If not I coul pick you up a jar. Lemme know!

Oh man, that looks so good. I love making the cookie dough balls, and with no eggs they still taste amazing. i want some fudge now:(

Jennifer said...

Planning on making this tonight. One question, how well do you think it stores? I'm not sure of the best-by dating for fudge. I have time to make it tonight and would like to take 1/2 of it to my book club meeting on Sunday, would it still be okay?

Katrina said...

Jennifer--the fudge I posted is just starting to look a little dried out (I have a few pieces of it here). I have another batch I made yesterday (and gave most of it away) that seemed a little more moist. I think the cookie dough will last in the fridge for 4-5 days. The fudge, maybe only 2-3. I know you can freeze fudge though. Maybe you should freeze the portion that will be used on Sunday.

Wow...I DO think you've made the perfect fudge :)

This fudge looks just amazing!

How fun is this fudge. Perfect for all of those upcoming holiday parties.

Shelby said...

I totally agree...walnuts are so good in fudge...and Grumpy always will say -= your going to put walnuts in that when I'm making Banana bread too!

Thanks for taking care of me while we were on vacation :)
