Italian Chocolate Fudge Roll Cookies

Friday, December 8, 2017
 Italian Chocolate Fudge Rolls are a must at Christmas time. These are exactly what they sound like a fudge filled cookie!  Italian Fudge Rolled into a delicious cookie crust! This is one of those all time favorite Christmas cookies. The filling is actual fudge. Once you make that filling it's hard not to keep eating it before it gets into the dough for the cookies!

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.

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 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 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, delicious decadent cookie for your Christmas cookie tray!
