Fudge Puddles

I made Fudge Puddles.  OMG.  My mother made these for me a few years ago and I fell in love with them.  Of course I did.  I always fall in love with anything made with peanut butter and chocolate.  And...I always fall in love with things I shouldn't eat.  ALWAYS.

They are basically a peanut butter cookie filled with fudge.  Kill me now.
Make your dough.  Cover with cling wrap. and refrigerate for an hour.
Roll them in 1 inch balls and place in a mini muffin tins.  Bake.  When they are warm, make little wells in them by pushing the end of a melon baller into them.  I have been told there is a fancy tool that does this...but my melon baller works just as well.
Melt your chocolate, condensed milk and vanilla on the stove in a double boiler.  It makes up a fudge sauce.
 Holy smokes. 
Then in a piping bag, fill in the little wells with fudge.  (you can use a spoon, too.)

They are so yummy!
Okay...I am losing my concentration.  I am watching Paula's Home Cooking on my DVR and she is making cinnamon rolls.  WOW. 
So...here is the recipe...before my ADD kicks in.

Fudge Puddles
½ cup butter or margarine, softened
½ cup creamy peanut butter
½ cup sugar
½ c brown sugar
1 egg
½ t vanilla (I increased to 1 ½ t)
1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
¾ t baking soda
½ t salt

Cream butter, peanut butter and sugars; add egg and vanilla.  Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt; add to creamed mixture.  Mix well. Chill for 1 hour.  Shape into balls—1 inch each.  Place in a lightly greased mini-muffin tin.  Bake for 14-16 minutes or until lightly browned.  Remove from oven and immediately make “wells” in the center of each by lightly pressing with a melon baller.  Cool in pans for 5 minutes; carefully remove to wire rack.

Fudge filling:
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 t vanilla
Chopped peanuts (optional)

Melt chocolate chips in double boiler over simmering water.  Stir in milk and vanilla; mix well.  Using a small pitcher or pastry bag, fill each “well” with filling. Sprinkle with peanuts.  (Leftover filling can be stored in the fridge and served over warm ice cream!)

I probably shouldn't admit how many of these I ate....

They look amazing. Now I really wish I'd been at Camp Blogaway last weekend. Guess I'll just have to make them myself and pretend I was there.

Bo, these are seriously good and I'm not even that much of a chocolate fan! Though I just made chocolate cupcakes. Wasn't camp fun!
