Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough FudgeI tried this recipe for the first time a week ago…I am making my second batch tomorrow.  It is super rich with the butter, cream and brown sugar but absolutely amazing. It makes a great gift this time of year, people will thank you, then ask for more!

Cookie Dough Fudge

1 3/4 cups sugar
3/4 cups dark brown sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup 2% milk
1 tbsp corn syrup
1 tsp kosher salt
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

In a 4-quart pot, combine sugars, heavy cream, milk, corn syrup and salt.  Insert a candy thermometer and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, to 242 F.  Remove from the heat and add butter, vanilla extract and flour.  Pour into a 9×13-inch pan and let sit for 20 minutes.  (The mixture will harden up and begin to crystallize)

Coat an 8×8-inch pan with cooking spray, wipe out excess oil with a napkin.  Scrape the now hardened candy syrup into a bowl of a stand mixer and beat with the paddle attachment until the fudge comes together into a ball.  Scrape fudge into the prepared 8×8 pan and press into a flat layer.  Add chocolate chips and press into the fudge.

Let sit at room temperature to crystallize, do not put into the fridge as it will disrupt the natural crystallization process.  Once the fudge is cooled and the chocolate chips are set, place in the fridge for 1 hour (this will make the fudge easy to cut).  Cut into 1-inch pieces and serve to all your friends!
