We Made Room For Dessert 23 - Hot Fudge Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies

Talk about decadent!  When we DO make room for dessert, we don't joke around.  I came across the recipe for hot fudge stuffed cookies on Pinterest (find original pin HERE).  I made them for our New Year's eve party and they were a hit! The original recipe calls for making your own cookie dough.  But I decided to adapt the recipe and make it my own by using store bought chocolate chip cookie dough.  You also use store bought hot fudge.  You get 12 cookies that are an luscious dessert that will satisfy your chocolate craving for sure!

Hot Fudge Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 12.8 oz jar hot fudge (I use Hershey's, use your fav)
  • 16.5 oz refrigerated cookie dough roll (I use Nestle Toll House)

Spoon 12 teaspoons of hot fudge on to wax paper lined baking sheet and freeze for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350.
Place silicone mat (or parchment paper) on cookie sheet (you'll need 2 cookie sheets total, place 6 cookies on each).
Slice cookie dough in to 12 slices.  Break each slice in half and roll in to flat disk in your hand.  Place a hot fudge drop on one disk, and cover with another disk.  Roll until you have a complete ball.  Place on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining hot fudge and dough.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Cookies will not be 100% done but that's ok.  Cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes.  Movie cookies to cooling rack and allow to cool for another 20 minutes before eating.

Edamame Hummus - Pinterest Pick #12

Hummus is a great snack because it is high in protein. But instead of using chickpeas I got the idea from Pinterest to use edamame!  While not as high in protein, it is still a good choice.  Super delicious, and the edamame have a fresher taste than chickpeas. So easy, you can make it quick for a healthy snack or a delicious appetizer! Find the Pin HERE and the original recipe HERE.

Edamame Hummus


  • 16 oz bag shelled edamame
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 3 tablespoons Tahini
  • salt and pepper

In a food processor, place garlic and pulse a few times to rough chop.  Add in edamame, spices, lemon juice and Tahini.  Puree together for a minute.  Stream in olive oil and puree for a minute or two until hummus is smooth.  Serve with your favorite chips or veggies.
