Decadent Homemade Fudge Rounds

Homemade Fudgee-O Cookies - a homemade version of a childhood favorite sandwich cookie. So fudgy, chocolatey good.

Chocolate Wafer Cookies

Sift  together and set aside:

1 ½ cups flour
1 ½ cups cocoa

Cream together until well combined:

½ cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
3 tsp vanilla extract


4 egg whites

Beat until light and fluffy. Fold in the dry ingredients until a soft dough forms. Form the dough into a roll about 2 ½ inches wide, wrap in plastic wrap and chill for a couple of hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Using a very sharp knife, cut off thin slices of the chilled dough, about ¼ inch, and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake for about 12 minutes. Cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before transferring the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Fudge Filling:

Melt together

1 cup chocolate chips
2 tbsp butter

Don’t let the chocolate mixture get too hot. You want the chocolate to be just melted but not hot.

Blend in until smooth:

1 cup icing sugar (powdered sugar)
4 tbsp milk

Spoon the fudge filling into a piping bag with a large plain round tip (or just a Zip-loc bag with the corner snipped off) and squeeze some of the filling onto the center of half the cookies. Place the other half of the cookies on top and press down to evenly spread the fudge to the edges of the cookies. Allow these cookies to sit for a couple of hours for the fudge to set up before serving.
