Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge (seriously.)

My dad is a pretty good cook.  He's master of the grill and he was always known around our neighborhood for his smoked turkeys.  His other claim to fame is Christmas fudge.  Chocolate fudge...and you can typically find him enjoying the first piece with a cold beer.

{My dad is awesome.}

So, when I received a copy of Nina Wanat's beautiful book, Sweet Confections, the fudge caught my eye immediately.  This is not my dad's fudge....this is chocolate chip cookie dough fudge.  No, you're not dreaming.
Let me tell you about it.  It's delicious.  Mine turned out a bit darker than the picture in the book, but it's still delectable.  I'm assuming it's because I was stopping the process to take pictures...don't do that.

  53. Wow, these pictures make me want to go buy a roll of cookie dough and eat the whole thing. With a fork. (Because making my own dough would just take too long--the craving demands immediacy.)

    Also, I really need to buy a candy thermometer now. Maaaaan.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Looks wonderful... But have you ever tasted Scottish tablet? It's kinda like fudge but harder, crisp when you bite into it - and utterly gorgeous. It involves butter, sugar and condensed milk. Apply straight to the hips and the arteries....

  94. Oh man.. salted chocolate caramel is my WEAKNESS right now. #dying

    ReplyDelete
  95. Since I found no-stick foil I've stopped the oiled/buttered/greased pan for fudge and instead line it with no-stick foil. Cool it, flip it or pull it out with the edge of the foil, and peel away the foil. Not as messy and no taste imparted from the butter/grease/oil.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Oh my god, I am heaven. Thank you so much for posting this recipe!! I love anything with cookie dough in it :)

  126. At Christmas my Grandmother would send trays home with each family of many different types of candies. It became a great tradition that we all looked so forward to. Several years ago, her health prevented her to no longer make candy. I then took over the making of the Christmas candy. Although I still make many of the same candies she made, I am always looking for new recipes to try out on my very eager family members!!!!!
