What You Want
Most of those substances are fairly primary, however there’s one you actually want to concentrate to. Right here’s what you want:
- Flour. Any all-purpose flour will work effectively right here. You’ll need to warmth deal with it (solely takes just a few seconds, I’ll present you the way to do that rapidly within the microwave!) and sift it earlier than you employ it to keep away from the chance of any sickness from uncooked flour.
- White chocolate chips. Use a great high quality white chocolate chip, I like Ghirardelli.
- Sweetened condensed milk. One of many greatest errors individuals make with this fudge is utilizing evaporated milk as an alternative of sweetened condensed milk (an enormous downside I’ve seen individuals run into with my cake batter fudge). Evaporated milk is offered proper beside sweetened condensed milk, and whereas they give the impression of being comparable, your fudge is not going to arrange correctly if that is used.
- Butter. This provides to the creaminess of the fudge in addition to to the basic cookie dough style. Use unsalted butter, or your fudge will prove too salty.
- Brown sugar. You should utilize both gentle or darkish brown sugar; I usually favor darkish brown sugar, which makes the fudge barely sweeter, richer and darker in colour (so nearer in keeping with what cookie dough really appears to be like like!).
- Vanilla extract. Like brown sugar, vanilla extract is a key cookie dough taste. We’ll add a great quantity right here to ensure the flavour actually shines.
- Salt. To steadiness the sweetness of this fudge, we’ll add some salt. Desk salt works positive right here!
- Semisweet chocolate chips. I like to make use of a mix of mini and common semisweet chips. I like to make use of semisweet as a result of not solely is that this what’s mostly utilized in chocolate chip cookies, however the semi-sweet half helps counter a number of the sweetness of the fudge.
SAM’S TIP: Since some flours have been discovered to be contaminated with E.coli, I like to recommend you warmth deal with your flour. Warmth treating the flour might appear to be an pointless step since we’re cooking the fudge, however it doesn’t get fairly sizzling sufficient to kill micro organism whereas it’s on the stovetop. To eradicate any threat, I prefer to first warmth deal with my flour within the microwave, which takes seconds. You may also warmth it within the oven, which is what I do with my cookie dough bites and cookie dough buttercream. Flour could be vulnerable to clumping after heat-treating, so I at all times sift it into the fudge to take away any lumps.
Keep in mind, that is simply an summary of the substances I used and why. For the total recipe please scroll all the way down to the underside of the submit!

When you’re anxious about doing this, you possibly can at all times pour half of your fudge into the pan, add ½ cup of chocolate chips over the half, then add the remaining fudge and gently swirl the layers collectively, then high with remaining chocolate chips.
Incessantly Requested Questions
When you’ve waited quite a lot of hours and your fudge continues to be liquidy, there’s a great likelihood an ingredient was mis-measured or a substitute was made (you didn’t by accident use evaporated milk as an alternative of condensed, did you?).
Once you add your semisweet chocolate chips, you have to be very fast and deliberate in order that they don’t soften into your fudge. It will occur quick, so you have to combine and get the fudge within the pan at first blends collectively.
