These Should Come With A Warning Label

Last night we hosted a dinner gathering last night so along with my Heart of the Garden Herb Bread, we served Spinach, white bean and turkey sausage soup with a side dish of garden herb & tomato pasta. For desert I made Tina's Fudge Puddles. Let me tell you, these sweet treats definitley should come with a warning label. There is no way you can eat just one of them! You have to try them for yourself.

*I changed my filling mixture up just a tad from the original recipe. Tina's recipe called for chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. However, I used chocolate and peanut butter chips since we are not big fans of butterscotch.

Tina's Fudge Puddles

Cookie Crust:
1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1 /2 t. vanilla extract
1 - egg
1-1/4 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt

Preheat oven to 325* Grease a mini muffin pan and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine butter, peanut butter, and both sugars until blended well. Beat in egg and vanilla & cream well.

In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add flour mixture to the creamed mixture.

Cover dough and chill in the icebox for at least an hour.

Remove chilled dough & form into 1" balls and place into each muffin cup.

Place in oven and bake for about 15 minutes or until very lightly browned. Remove from oven and quickly make an indentation in the center of each ball to form a "cup." Allow to cool in the pan for at least 5 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack.

Filling recipe:
2 c. chocolate & peanut butter chips (mixed)
1-14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 t. vanilla
chopped nuts or sprinkles (optional)

In a microwave safe bowl or saucepan, combine all of the ingredients except the nuts/sprinkles. Microwave for 1 minutes. Stir well. If there are still un-melted chips, continue to melt in microwave in 15 second increments until all smooth.

Once all cookie cups have been baked, begin filling with the warm, melted filling. You will need to work quickly on this step as filling will begin to cool and harden. Filling will "set up" as it cools.

Oh my goodness, does these sound good...hummm will give them a try. I think I like your version since I'm not crazy about butterscotch either.
Hope you have a great Mother's Day

What a nice change up. I think recipes can be made whatever way you want them I am so glad the fudge puddles were a hit. And your right they should come with a morning label. Ü
