Recipe type: Cookies
Serves: 2 dozen
Ingredients
  • 1 batch Nestle's Famous Fudge *(recipe below)
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2¼ cups flour
  • ½ cup walnut pieces
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Cream butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.
  2. Add salt, baking soda, and flour, and mix well. Stir in nuts and chocolate chips.
  3. Cut prepared fudge into very small pieces. (about 100 pieces from a 9x9 or 8x8 pan.) *(see notes)
  4. Roll dough around a piece of fudge, and place on a baking sheet, leaving plenty of space for spreading. These should make a generous sized cookie.
  5. Bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned on the edges. Let sit on the baking sheet to cool for 2-3 minutes, before removing to a cooling rack.
Notes
*I used only about ⅓ of a batch of fudge to make these cookies. I cut about three small rows, and cut each row into 10 small cubes. After cookies are made, there should be plenty of fudge left over, to cut any way you wish.
