Italian Chocolate Fudge Roll Cookies

Saturday, December 7, 2019
Italian Chocolate Fudge Rolls are a must at Christmas time.

These are exactly what they sound like, fudge-filled cookies!

These can be rolled or made into fudge cookie squares just by taking a shortcut and rolling out the dough, adding the filling top with dough, bake and viola cut into squares.

The cookies are so much prettier for the Christmas Holiday so I roll them, a little work but once a year is a must for me.

Italian style rich buttery dough with Fudge baked into a delicious cookie crust!

This is one of those all-time childhood favorite Christmas cookies.

During the holidays we made several cookies maybe you remember some of the 24 cookies recipes in the past I made?

We also loved making copycat Girl Scout Cookies recipes, they are so easy!

Once you make that filling it's hard not to keep eating it before it gets into the dough for the cookies, it's so addicting.

Scroll dough for this easy festive cookie that's great any time of the year but looks beautiful on that Christmas tray and perfect for gift giving!!

Many Versions


There are so many versions of this dough to make.


Mom had one, grandma had one. I adapted this one.


The original dough was with cream cheese and extremely hard to work with.


If you added more flour it got hard when they cooked.


I adapted this one and it's easier to handle, roll and stays very tender yet a more of a flaky kind and tasting crust.


The reason is the shortening in it.

The Filling



These Italian Chocolate Fudge Cookie Rolls, came out perfect.


The filling is outstanding.


If you have ever made the condensed milk chocolate fudge recipes online, this taste exactly like it inside this cookie dough.


I think this was my favorite cookie as a child the fudge inside is decadent, the cookie scream Christmas.








Best Ever Cookies



The best cookie on the tray and so decadent.


Of course now I love all the cookies at Christmas and can't pick just one.


This Christmas was extra special for me.


I had never been home for the holiday in 31 years.


Working as a Store Manager in Retail, hours were few and far in between to be had.


I never felt like making them this year I did.




this is how to make Italian fudge roll cookies. This is a vintage recipe of dough that is filled with a chocolate fudge, rolled then sliced. These are two loaves it makes.





Mom Inspires Me All Time



I love to keep traditions going in mom's memory.


Mom's inspiration thinking of her and how tough those days were, she worked full time which in the 60's was practically unheard of!


She managed to get everything done and I made time for all of them this year.


The traditional cookies like sesame seed, anisette biscotti, S shaped cookies, pizzelles, struffoli, just to name a few.


We also love a cake called Italian Pandoro, it's a light and tender scratch cake.

I made so many cookies I was able to give folks at work and my husbands work huge trays.


Of course I was in such the Christmas spirit, I kept making them and giving them away.


Best Christmas cookie season for me ever!

Cookie Bake Day For Christmas



My family in Utica, New York has a cookie day every year.


I have 3 grown nieces with children that all get together one Saturday and bake till they drop.


They make probably over 15 kinds of cookies and share within the families that made them.


I would love to be part of that someday. Maybe next year.


They make these cookies also, their mom's favorite and that the cookie she makes.

This was a special year of baking.



This is the year I went all out it's my first Christmas not working Retail and retired from Sears after 31 years.


I do have lots in the freezer to share during the year also.


I freeze them all in separate bags so they don't all taste the same and on the trays, I tray to put them in paper cupcake holders. They look festive and stay fresh.


When I took some of these chocolate fudge rolls out of the freezer, they tasted just like I first baked them!



this is a fudge made with chocolate and a filling that will go into an Italian rolled chocolate fudge cookie




Some Tips First!



I completely cool my cookies after they are baked then slice.


The fudge will stick to the knife if still warm.


I found that using a plastic knife work better.


Dust with powdered sugar.


Also, these freeze very well and travel great if your mailing!


The dough is a little tricky to roll out so be sure to use lots of flour on either wax paper or parchment paper when rolling.







Always A Favorite



Christmas wouldn't be Christmas or shout out holiday without this traditional cookie on the tray.


If you never made these Italian Chocolate Fudge Roll cookies, give them a try.


They are a true delight, a delicious decadent cookie for your Christmas cookie tray!

Italian Chocolate Fudge Roll Cookie is an Italian Traditional fudge filled cookie decadent and made at Christmas cookies with real fudge inside recipe via What's Cookin Italian Style Cuisine

ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tablespoons shortening
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • Filling:
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • Melt 2 cups chocolate semi-sweet chips in a microwave-proof bowl with one can of sweetened condensed milk, add 1 cup chopped walnuts and set aside.

instructions:

How to cook Italian Chocolate Fudge Roll Cookies

  1. In a large bowl, beat the sugar and shortening together.
  2. Add the egg and milk and slowly pour the flour, baking soda in to form a soft dough. Cut the dough in 4 even rounds.
  3. Roll out each piece into a rectangular shape. 
  4. Spoon a heaping scoop of the chocolate filling into the center of the dough and spread with a spatula evenly on the dough.
  5. Roll up like a jelly roll. Place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
  6. Cool completely before slicing.
  7. Note: These can also be made in a brownie pan rolling out the dough to fit like a pie crust, add to the greased pan top with filling and another thin rolled crust on top. Bake until the crust is browned. Cool and cut into squares. These are much thicker, richer and very sweet.  I prefer the rolling of the dough but it's a little harder to do.
