While I was making peanut butter fudge (the recipe), my 4 year old asked if he could have some. I had to break his little heart and tell him it was peanut butter and he couldn't have it. Out of guilt, I jumped on my computer and tried to find a chocolate chip cookie dough recipe I could make with ingredients I had on hand. This was the only one I found that I could make. I ended up being able to experiment with a DIY Sweetened Condensed Milk recipe as well :)
Recipe from Baking And Boys!
What you need:
- 3 cups chocolate chips
- 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk (I used a DIY recipe: here)
- Dash of salt
- 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter
- 6 tbsp. light brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/8 tsp. salt
- 7 oz. sweetened condensed milk (half a can)
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
After it's chilled, roll pieces of cookie dough into tsp. size balls. Place on waxed paper.
Line a 9-inch square dish with foil and spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
Melt chocolate chips, salt, vanilla, and sweetened condensed milk in a medium saucepan. Stir until smooth.
Spread half of the fudge in the bottom of the pan.
Chill for a couple hours. Remove from foil and slice into pieces.
