Chocolate Chip Cookie Fudge

I'm still trying to get caught up on all the new recipes that I was making when my computer was down and out... Finally made it up to the Christmas baking section of my recipes! So, it may be a little after Christmas, but you might want to keep these recipes for next year because they were fabulous! Let's start with some fudge!

I usually try a different fudge recipe every year for Christmas and I have found some good ones and some that are a breeze to throw together... These were super yummy and not too difficult to make. They lasted perfectly in the fridge and were yummy to snack on through the week! :)

Chocolate Chip Cookie Fudge
(recipe found on pinterest via

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons half and half
1/2 cup all-purpose flour

For the fudge:
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup butter
pinch of salt
1/3 cup half and half
4-5 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Line an 8x8 baking dish with foil, leaving a 1 inch overhang. Spray with non-stick cooking spray. To prepare the cookie dough, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the vanilla, salt, and half and half. Stir in the flour until incorporated. Set aside. To make the fudge base, combine the brown sugar, butter, salt, and half and half in a saucepan. Stir over medium low heat until the butter has melted and the brown sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and slowly stir in the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, until the mixture is smooth and well combined. Stir in the 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. Keep in refrigerator for up to 1 week.
