Marbled Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge

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:
Fudge:
  • 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
Cookie Dough:
  • 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
Directions:

Start with the cookie dough by beating together butter and brown sugar until they are well combined.
Add vanilla, beat until combined. Then add flour and salt, beat until just combined. 
Beat in the condensed milk. Stir in chocolate chips.  Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
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. 
Add cookie dough pieces on the bottom layer of fudge. Swirl around the cookie dough and fudge with a butter knife. Then top with the rest of the fudge and smooth out.

Chill for a couple hours. Remove from foil and slice into pieces.

    Sorry, I don't know why I called your fudge, cookies and cream. I knew it was Cookie Dough, which I have never made. It's 11:30 and time for bed, apparently! Good night!
