Fudge Puddle Cookies – Recipe

** This is a repost but I was totally craving these!
It has been really cold here in Houston and that “I just want to stay home and bake” feeling has bitten me! So I wanted to try a new recipe and it was a success, judging by my kids faces.
The recipe is below, mix the dough and then put it in the fridge for about an hour.
Next, I took my smallest cookie scoop and dropped scoopfuls into my mini muffin pans. It was easier and faster than rolling them into balls by hand!
Then as soon as they came out of the oven I used the wooden handle of a ( can’t think of the name of the tool, Mom help!) and pushed in the middle of the cookies to make a little well.
Aren’t they cute?
Next, I made the fudge and had the girls help me fill the cookies.
Oh My Goodness! They are good!
They are so pretty all stacked together. Almost too pretty to eat… almost.

    If you do it right away they will melt. I have done it that way and have also put the chips in and put them back in the oven for 2 more min. to melt them….

    I made these last year except, right after I made the little well and while the cookies were still hot I filled them with Chocolate chips (used different flavors) and everyone loved them. I am going to have to try it with the fudge this year! Thanks!!!Jaime

    Pestle. I'm not your mom, although some might think I'm old enough to be.If you had precipitation right now, would it be rain or snow? Do you dream of a white Christmas?Twenty degrees right now. Full sun. The snow won't melt on the roads. In Utah talk, "Friggin' Cold!"

    Jamie, did the chocolate chips just melt? I'm pretty lazy so if I can skip making the fudge and just use chocolate chips, that would be great!

    We are making basic fudge today when my mom checked your site and now the plans have changed! The cookies will look so pretty next to the other goodies on the plates for the neighbors. Thanks Tiff!

    Yummy! So, do you add the fudge when it is hot, or will it work when it has cooled? Just trying to figure out the timing. I guess make all the cookies then fill them all at once with the fudge? Thanks for sharing!

    Is there any chance you have a good replacement for the peanut butter? I have a peanut/tree nut allergic little one and I really want to make some of these!!

    I too have made something similar and have put the small Reese’s peanut butter cups (bought them clearance after Halloween) in, quick trip back to oven to gently melt into cookie. Another variation, used Sugar cookie dough, sliced up strawberries, and topped with a squirt of whipped cream. Pretty and refreshing!

    I use those logs of choc. Chip cookie dough. Cut it into slices then cut into 4 sections. Put in mini muffin pan then push down with that tool. Drop in a Hershey kiss. And bake. Always a hit at a baby shower.

    Sorry to take so long….that was a lemon reamer you used on the cookies to make the well for the chocolate. I’m hungry to make these now.
