If you are a fan of cookie dough then this fudge is for you! You get a wonderful cookie dough flavor mixed with the creamy fudge texture that will leave your family wanting more! My kids have always loved cookie dough ice cream and were super excited when I brought up the idea of making cookie dough fudge. We had a great time making it and sharing it with our family. The girls even decided they needed to make a second batch for the neighbors. We always have a great time cooking together and made some great memories with this recipe!
It’s summertime so we try to cut way back on using the stove but this easy recipe only took a few minutes to heat up so no super hot kitchen on this one! Both girls kept swiping the chocolate chips out of the bowl!! Of course Charlee Ann kept complaining she wanted cookie dough ice cream and of course I gave her a bowl while the fudge was cooling in the fridge. All in all it was one of the best fudge recipes that I have ever tasted…………. not so good for losing weight but definitely a great special treat!
