Fudge Puddles Recipe

A sweet friend of ours made these delicious cookies for the church fellowship dinner on Sunday.
 She gave us the recipe, and permission to blog about them--thanks Amy! :)

Fudge Puddles

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup pecan halves (optional)
or sprinkles (optional)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
Sift together flour, baking soda and salt.
Cream butter, peanut butter and white and brown sugars.
Mix in egg and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Stir the flour mixture into creamed mixture.
Shape the dough into 48 balls, 1 inch each. Place each ball in one compartment of a mini muffin tin.
For filling, put chocolate chips in a double boiler over simmering water. Stir in milk and vanilla, mix well.
Bake for 14 to 16 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and immediately make wells in the center of each using a melon baller. Cool in pan for 5 minutes. Then carefully remove to wire racks. Using a measuring cup fill each shell with the chocolate mixture. Top with a pecan half or sprinkles if desired.
Okay, I'll walk you through what we did with some of the pics I took.
After we got the cookie dough mixed, we rolled the balls and put in the mini-muffin pans
 (we did spray our pans w/oil though it didn't say to)
Here's Bri about to put the first batch in the oven
When they came out we used the melon balled to push down the middles-then after 5 min. we put on wire racks

p.s. Please make sure all brothers are safely occupied elsewhere...we had a thief! :)

She did such a good job!
I thought they turned out well--and they taste great!

p.s.p.s. we did have a little hot fudge leftover, and I let the kids eat it over ice cream! :)

Be sure and let me know if you try them!

Mmmm that is a awesome idea to use the leftover fudge for ice cream topping! :) Glad you enjoyed them!
Have a great week, Amy
