We adapted this fun recipe from Buttered with a Side of Bread using refrigerated cookie dough. There are only 6-7 ingredients here to make it easy, and you can have them ready within an hour. The recipe makes 24 cups or enough for a party.

Once you’ve baked the cookies, you create divots using a melon baller or spoon. Then you can pipe the fudge in using a pastry bag or ziplock bag, or alternatively a spoon. This is one of the most fun parts!
