Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge


Ingredients

cookie dough
    • 1/3 cup (5 1/3 tablespoons) butter, softened
    • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • pinch of salt
    • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
    • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
fudge
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup (5 1/3 tablespoons) butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4-5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Line an 8×8-inch or 9X9-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil and set aside. Do not spray.
  • For the cookie dough: in a medium bowl (or in the bowl of a stand mixer) combine the butter and sugars and beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Mix in the vanilla, salt, and heavy cream. Add the flour and mix until just combined. Fold in 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips. Set aside.
  • For the fudge: combine the brown sugar, butter, salt, and heavy cream in a medium saucepan. Stir over medium-low heat until the butter is melted and the brown sugar is dissolved. The mixture should be smooth and combined.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Gradually stir in the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, until the mixture is smooth and thick. The mixture should be very thick. Let this mixture cool completely before proceeding so the chocolate chips do not melt when combined.
  • Add the fudge base to the cookie dough bowl and stir to combine. Spread the fudge into the prepared baking pan and press into an even layer. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 chocolate chips on top of the fudge and lightly press them into the batter.
  • Chill until set, about 3-4 hours, before cutting into pieces.
