Homemade Fudge Rounds

Homemade Fudge Rounds.  Silky chocolate filling sandwiched between the rich and fudgy cookies.  My friend brought these to my cookie party several years ago, and every year since then I ask her to bring them to the annual party.  They are so so good and I have been known to hide the leftovers in my secret sweet stash so my kids won't find them. I have no shame.

For the cookies:

10 Tbsp salted butter, soft at room temperature

⅔ cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder

1 ⅔ cups sugar

2 eggs

1 egg yolk

1 ½ Tbsp warm water

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 ⅓ cup flour

2 tsp cornstarch

½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

For the fudge filling:

¾ cup salted butter, soft at room temperature

3 cups powdered sugar

4 ½ Tbsp cocoa powder

3-5 tablespoon heavy cream

¼ tsp salt

For chocolate stripes:

50 hershey kisses, unwrapped (milk chocolate)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, and cocoa powder until fluffy.

Add in eggs, vanilla, and water and mix until well combined.

In a separate medium sized bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Slowly add in the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix well.

Coop out cookie dough by 1 ½-2Tbsp portions and place on prepared cookie sheet at least 2 inches apart (these cookies spread) I bake 6 cookies per baking sheet.

Bake cookies for 10 minutes, being careful to not over bake.  These cookies should still be soft.  Allow cookies to cool completely.

To make the filling, cream the butter on high speed until fluffy.  Add in 1 cup of the powdered sugar, the cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and 2Tbsp cream.  Repeat until with remaining powdered sugar and cream until the filling is your desired consistency.  It should be a thick frosting.

Pair up the cookies and make a sandwich with the fudge filling.

Melt the Hershey Kisses in the microwave at 15 second intervals stirring in between.  Heat just until melted as to avoid burnt spots.  Drizzle sandwiches with melted kisses to create the stripes.
