This month I was assigned Karen's Kitchen Stories. Karen is a Southern California gal who loves her time in the kitchen. She's also a busy lady who works by day, teaches part time college classes, is married with two grown children and two grandsons. She's like me, in that we both tend to make messes in the kitchen. Phew, I'm not the only one. Check out her About Me page for more insight in to her life and blog.
(love my helper)The recipe we chose this month was her Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge. My girl (youngest) loves fudge and she loves cookie dough. So it just seemed fitting that she chose that recipe. I am not a HUGE fudge fan, so I think I maybe ate half a piece, but she ate a few as did my oldest daughter. My hubby and oldest took some to work and everyone liked it, so I suppose you could say it was a hit!
The recipe was easy and didn't take us too long. I have really enjoyed being a part of The Secret Recipe Club. I always look forward to that email telling me who my "secret" blog is, and then I LOVE searching their recipe files for something awesome to make. My other favorite part? On reveal day, I LOVE going through the thumbnails and trying to spot "my" recipe that someone made.
This fudge was yummy, and actually did taste like cookie dough. We were good girls and didn't sample too much of the "eggless" cookie dough before mixing it in to the fudge.
1/3 c. unsalted, room temperature butter
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. packed, light brown sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. Cream
1/2 c. flour
1/3 c. packed, light brown sugar
1/3 c. unsalted butter
pinch of salt
1/3 c. cream
5 c. powdered sugar (yep, you read right)
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 c. mini chocolate chips
1. Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper, wax paper, or foil.
2. Make cookie dough by beating the butter and sugars in the bowl of a stand mixer until fluffy. Add vanilla, salt and cream. Mix in the flour until combined.
3. In a saucepan, put brown sugar, butter, salt and cream. Cook on low until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved.
4. Remove from heat and stir in powdered sugar in one cup increments.
5. Add vanilla
6. Mix cookie dough mixture in to fudge mixture and stir until combined and cooled to room temp. (I used my stand mixer for this and kind of left it marbled a little bit).
7. Stir in chocolate chips and pour in to pan.
8. Chill for a few hours. Cut in to amount of pieces desired.
Enjoy! Keep leftovers in the fridge.
