Delicious Fudge Cookies Recipe

Cookies are one of my favourite things to bake at home. They're quick and easy to make (a perfect toddler baking recipe) and taste absolutely delicious. I usually make my cookies with giant chocolate buttons but seeing as I had some leftover fudge from a cheesecake I made at the weekend; I decided to make Fudge Cookies instead!

Homemade Fudge Recipe

Obviously if you're just making cookies, you might want to just go out and buy some fudge pieces but if you fancy making it yourself, then you will need:
397g can of condensed milk
400g milk chocolate
25g butter
100g icing sugar

I followed the recipe on the back of the Carnation Condensed Milk can, which basically involved chopping up the chocolate and adding it to the pan with the butter and condensed milk. Heating it gently (low setting) until it was smooth and then sieving and mixing in the icing sugar. I used part of my fudge in a cheesecake and then put the rest in a tin in the fridge for a couple of hours, so it could set. If you pop a bit of clingfilm inside your tin and layer the fudge on top, it'll make it easier to lift it out once it has set. Then all you'll need to do is chop it into small pieces.

This recipe makes A LOT of fudge. There was enough for my cheesecake, enough for my cookies and we still have plenty leftover. Luckily it keeps for 2 weeks so I'll probably end up using it in cupcakes or another bake.

Fudge Cookie Recipe:

125g of unsalted butter (room temp)
125g caster sugar
100g light brown sugar
1 egg
225g self raising flour
Pinch of salt
50-60g Fudge Pieces (I usually just do this by sight - you can add as much as you like really!)

Fudge Cookie Recipe Method:

1. Mix together the unsalted butter, caster sugar and light brown sugar (I usually use my Swan Mixer to save time but you can do this with a wooden spoon.
2. Crack the egg and mix it in
3. Mix in the self raising flour and pinch of salt
4. Add in the fudge pieces and mix
5. Line a tray (or two) with greaseproof paper and roll your mixture into walnut sized balls, placing them on the tray (you can make the balls larger if you want bigger cookies)
6. Bake in the oven (pre-heated to 180 degrees) for 7-10 minutes (the cookies need to be baked but not too much. They will harden up when they cool down.)
7. Cool on a wire rack

How many fudge cookies you make will depend on how big you make the balls! I think I made about 14 medium-large cookies with this recipe yesterday but have been known to make 19-20 smaller cookies with the same recipe in the past.
