Fudge Puddles are a super soft, chewy peanut butter cookie cup, filled to the brim with a simple, luscious, ganache-like chocolate fudge filling! For chocolate and peanut butter lovers, Fudge Puddles are going to be a new favorite.
I’m very curious to hear from you guys as to whether you were familiar with Fudge Puddles until I posted this White Chocolate Fudge Puddles recipe a few weeks ago. In all my years of baking (and I’ve been baking since I was a little kid!), I only encountered Fudge Puddles for the first time last Christmas.
I received a message on Instagram from a high school friend, and all he sent me was a picture of these cookies. He knows I’m a nut for peanut butter, so I had to assume they were some kind of peanut butter cookie. That’s definitely what they look like afterall… a peanut butter cookie cup with some kind of chocolate filling.
I asked him what I was looking at, and he wrote to me that they are Fudge Puddles, and that his family makes them every Christmas. I feel like maybe I already said all this in the White Chocolate Fudge Puddles recipe…
Anyway, this Fudge Puddles recipe produces a super soft, cake-like peanut butter cookie cup, filled to the brim with a simple chocolate fudge filling. The peanut butter cookie cups are definitely potent with peanut butter flavor, and they’re so soft and chewy.
The filling is like a quick fudge – just chocolate chips melted down with sweetened condensed milk into a sweet, rich, luscious ganache-like, fudgy chocolate center. Fudge Puddles are amazing!
Fudge Puddles are so simple, and are a chocolate and peanut butter-lovers’ dream! I still cannot believe that it took me into my mid-thirties (okay, late thirties) to learn about them. I know these are going to be a hit at parties and family get-togethers.
