I’ve got a decadent treat you are going to love. These Fudge Stuffed Cookie Bars are perfect for the holidays or anytime!
If you have a cookie exchange, these would be absolutely delicious! They’re made with premade cookie dough, and you can use any flavor! Then, you’ll spread a layer of fudge over the cookie dough, sprinkle additional cookie dough, and bake them. They are divine!
What do you need to make Fudge Stuffed Cookie Bars?
You’ll need a few things:
- 12 oz bag of chocolate chips
- 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
- 30-36 oz refrigerated cookie dough (or make your own)
How do you make Fudge Stuffed Cookie Bars?
I use the short cut method with these and use refrigerated cookie dough. But, you can totally make your own dough from scratch for a typical batch of cookies such as the Nestle Tollhouse recipe on the chocolate chips bag.
First, you’ll want to make the fudge.
In a sauce pan combine the can of sweetened condensed milk, butter, and chocolate chips over medium heat.
Stir often until the chocolate chips are completely melted and the ingredients are all well combined.
Then, let the fudge sit for about 15 minutes, while you get the cookie dough ready.
If you are using refrigerated cookie dough, I recommend letting it sit out while you’re making the fudge, so it will be pliable and easy to push into the pan.
Once you have the cookie dough ready and it’s soft, get the pan ready.
I make these in a 13 x 9 inch casserole dish. I cover the bottom and sides with foil, so I can easily lift out the cookie bars and cut them.
Spray the foil with non-stick oil spray so nothing gets stuck to the pan.
Take about 2/3 to 3/4 of the cookie dough and press it evenly into the bottom of the pan. Reserve the rest of the cookie dough for later.
Once it’s been about 15 minutes, spread the fudge over the top of the cookie dough into a layer.
Take the reserved cookie dough and break into small pieces and drop all over the fudge.
Cook for 28-30 minutes, until cookie dough on top is golden brown.
Remove it from the oven and let it cool completely before cutting into squares.
Can you make these Fudge Stuffed Cookie Bars ahead of time?
Absolutely! This is why they are perfect for gift giving or a cookie exchange.
I would not recommend freezing, as defrosting may not be good for the fudge.
How do you store leftover Fudge Stuffed Cookie Bars?
Keep them in a sealed container or ziplock bag for up to a week.
