Cookie… dough… fudge. Oh yes, you heard me. All in one amazing bite. Sounds epic right? Well it bloomin’ well is!
Here is what you will need to make about 25 drool inducing pieces.
For The Cookie Dough
For The Fudge
*Don’t be tempted (as I almost was) to switch out the dark chocolate chips to milk chocolate. The fudge is already so sweet that you actually need the bitterness of the dark chocolate to cut through it. It just works, trust me.
Grease & line your cake tin with baking paper if using a metal tin.
To make the cookie dough, put the butter & sugar in the bowl of an electric stand mixer (or a large bowl with an electric hand whisk) and beat until light & fluffy.
Add in the vanilla and golden syrup then mix well. Sift in the flour, add the dark chocolate chips and mix until a firm dough forms.
Roughly divide the dough into 25 portions and roll into little balls. Place on a baking tray and pop into the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, let’s crack on with the fudge.
Put all the ingredients (except for the salt) into a large, heavy based saucepan.
Ok, it doesn’t look pretty now, but just you wait!
Place over a medium heat and stir occasionally until everything has dissolved. Bring to the boil and allow to bubble until it reaches 118°C on a thermometer. (About 15-20 mins or so.)
When it has reached temperature, remove from the heat and stir in the salt.
Allow to cool for a minute or two then give it a stir and pour into the prepared tin/silicone mould. Spread out evenly using the back of a spoon.
Then take the cookie dough balls out the freezer and evenly dot them into the fudge.
Leave the Cookie Dough Fudge to set at room temperature. (To be sure, leave for a couple of hours or better yet, overnight.) Don’t be tempted to put it in the fridge! It won’t end well.
Once the fudge has set, slice into 25 pieces and store in a metal tin lined with baking paper.
I mean, isn’t that a thing of beauty? Cookie Dough Fudge is definitely something you will want to share with friends, family & co-workers. Take it from me, you ain’t eating all this yourself! You’d probably land yourself in some sort of sugar induced food coma!
But seriously, the surrounding fudge is so beautifully soft & sweet, then you bite into the cookie dough and those dark chocolate chips… just little bites of pure, indulgent, heaven!
Well I hope you enjoyed the post this week my lovelies, until next time!
