Now this is good. Little scoops of cookie dough tossed in a batter of chocolate chips and condensed milk. It's really candy more than fudge. Chocolate cookie dough candy. Ah-maze-ing.
While the previously posted recipe is my husband's favorite in the battle of the cookie dough fudge bake off, this one is mine. I'm cool with that. Making this was a lot of fun.

Cookie Dough Fudge
1/2 C softened unsalted butter
1/2 C light brown sugar
1/4 C granulated sugar
2 T milk or half and half
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 C flour
3/4 C semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used regular, mini chips also work very well here)
2 C semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 C milk chocolate chips
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
Make the Cookie Dough:
- Place everything but the flour and chocolate chips in the bowl of a stand mixer and mix until fluffy.
- Add the flour and mix until just combined.
- Add the chips
- Make 1/2 inch or so sized balls of cookie dough and place on a sheet pan. I used this little cookie scoop to form the dough balls. Made it much easier.
- Freeze the dough balls for at least 15 minutes. I froze mine for one hour.
Make the fudge:
- Spray and 8 by 8 inch square pan with spray oil, and line with parchment or wax paper leaving enough paper to lift the chilled fudge out of the pan. I use binder clips to attach the paper overlap to the edge of the pan. Spray the parchment.
- Place the chocolate chips and condensed milk in a sauce pan and heat over low heat until the chips are melted. Stir continuously.
- Once the chips are melted, remove the pan from the heat.
- Fold the frozen dough balls into the chip mixture and then place the entire mixture into the pan.
- Chill the fudge in the refrigerator until solid.
- Cut into squares. Makes 64 one inch squares.
