Cookie Dough Fudge

This Cookie Dough Fudge is guaranteed to put a smile on your face! It’s rich, chocolaty and loaded with homemade cookie dough!
 Well, I hope everyone out there either had a great Mother’s Day and/or spoiled your Mom endlessly.
I had a very low-key, but completely enjoyable day.
My husband made me dinner and I got bunches of handmade cards from the little ones.
My youngest had to fill out a survey for his Mother’s Day card…
Questions like, “What is your mom’s name?”, “How old is you mom?”
I am fairly certain that Kindergarten teachers do this for their own jollies.
Another example:
“What is your Mom’s favorite thing to do?”
Well, upon reading my Mother’s Day card, my child answered, “Play on her phone”
Could he have not said, “Give me hugs” or “Play board games with me”?
I now seem like the world’s most inattentive Mother.
And while Words With Friends on my phone does seem to take up a good portion of my day I somehow feel self conscience about this when my 5 year old puts me on blast to his teacher.
My friend, Anne, gets the prize, though for Most Humiliating teacher story.
When her daughter got asked “What is your Mom’s favorite thing to do? ” for her Mother’s Day interview her sweet, precious daughter answered, “Lay on her bed and eat Puppy Chow”.
Ok, let’s let that hang in the air for a moment.
Not only does this make Anne sound incredibly lazy, it also makes her sound like some sort of Dog Food eating freak.
What her daughter failed to mention was that Puppy Chow is a deliciously sweet snack that our neighbor makes AND that she had been sick the days prior to the “interview” so she HAD been laying on her bed.
I am sure that the talk in the Teacher’s Lounge was on FIRE that afternoon!
In all honesty, I know we all love the handmade cards…humiliation and all…because we all know that the ammunition that our children give us on a daily basis is more than enough to embarrass them for their teenage years to come.
Paybacks, kids.  It’s a tough lesson.
Now to the fudge.  To add to my day of indulgence I decided to go back to territory I have been very familiar with lately.
Cookie Dough.
It has been the basis to some delicious treats as of late, like these..and this…and of course these.
Why stop there?
The idea for this delicious fudge came from the blog Fields of Cake.  I nearly fell outta my chair when I saw this post.  I knew there was absolutely no way that I wasn’t making it. Not. A Chance.
I made a few adaptations…I used a different fudge recipe for starters and also used my egg-free cookie dough recipe, but the ideas is all hers.


Cookie Dough Fudge

First make you egg-free cookies dough and try not not eat it!

Freeze it so it won’t melt in your fudge…

Simply fold dough into fudge and chill.
Cut into squares and enjoy!

Cookie Dough Fudge


Egg-free cookie dough:

  • 1/2 c. butter, softened
  • 1/2 c. packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. milk
  • 1tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1c. all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 c. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 (15 oz) can Sweetened Condensed Milk.


Egg-free Cookie Dough:

  1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a mixing bowl and cream together. Add flour and stir until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. You will need 1 1/2 cups approx of dough.
  2. You might have some leftover. You can freeze any leftovers for later.
  3. Form your cookie dough into marble sized balls.
  4. Place on a waxed paper lined baking sheet.
  5. Freeze for at least 15 minutes. The longer the better, so it doesn’t melt when you add it to the fudge.


  1. Butter the bottom and sides of an 8×8 pan.
  2. In a medium saucepan over low heat melt the sweetened condensed milk and chips together. Stirring continuously.
  3. When chocolate is melted remove from heat.
  4. Remove your cookie dough from the freezer and carefully fold into your fudge.
  5. Spread immediately in the pan.
  6. Chill for at least an hour.
  7. Cut into squares and serve

    Oh my GOODNESS!!! That looks incredible! We will HAVE to try it!

    AND, when kiddo was in preschool, the teachers did a survey like that. They asked the kids what their moms favorite food was. Kiddo said "vegetables" for me. Huh? One of the other kids said his mom's favorite food was "beer and chicken." I will never forget that. 🙂


    what can i say except that i bet you're quite popular ANYWHERE someone asks for treats like this fudge! i know i eat AT LEAST 2 cookie's worth of dough before i get the first batch baked . . . ok 3 . . . well . . . i am so grateful i don't have kids in school . . .

    Oh my loving God… this looks amazing.

    Cracking up over your kids. Mine in preschool was making out a grocery list, practicing writing, and put… "Budder and Beer" and that was it on his grocery list.

    I just got one of those cards from my kindergartener. He said I was 51 years old and look funny "when I have a towel on my head." I am actually glad he wasn't asked what I like best to do. I am afraid to hear the answer!

  17. Joanne

    Perhaps my problem with cookies is that I never really make them…because I've eaten all the dough. Hmm. you raise an interesting point.

    This fudge. Needs. To get in my life.

    Happy mother's day love!

    I had a doll named Richard, a girl doll…for some reason I just liked the name. Anyway daqent hunting one weekend so I gave her to mom so she wouldn't be lonely. Then I went to churh And told all my teachers who knew dad was gone, tha mom slept with Richard last night. One of them finally told mom months later when I brought Richard to sunday school but she cringes to think of what they thought before!

    As for the fudge, it looks so amazing. You make my kind of treat. 🙂

    This looks truly scrumptious! Truly, truly scrumptious! I loved your story. It really made me chuckle. I totally get it too. I think all moms understand such touching and somewhat painful stories 🙂
    BTW, I love your blog design. Ever think of having a blog tile painted of it? Just wondering 🙂
    Happy Mothers Day!
