Fudge Stripe Cookies

by Megan on January 30, 2012

Did you guys eat Fudge Stripe cookies as kids? Did you pop them onto your finger and casually eat them around the edges? I totally did. So these are a total memory! And an accessory! And they look so good in stripes.

These taste just like the Keebler guys. And since I live in an upper flat, I’m basically baking these in a tree, right? So if you ever crave these store-bought beauties, just make them! And when you’re snacking on them you’ll totally feel like a kid at a church picnic or at your Aunt’s house, but mostly you’ll just feel like a kid spinning around with a cookie on your finger.

Fudge Stripe Cookies {makes almost 2 dozen}
Recipe from Bravetart via Annie’s Eats

Ingredients:

  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 t baking soda
  • 6 T light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup canola oil or melted clarified butter
  • 2 T vanilla extract
  • 10-ish oz. dark chocolate, chopped and melted

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 35o°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the flour and baking soda in the bowl of an electric mixer and stir briefly. Add in the corn syrup, oil or butter, and vanilla. Mix until a dough comes together. Form into a disc, wrap in plastic and chill for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to about a 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out using a 2 1/2 inch round cookie cutter and a tiny round cutter or pastry tip to cut a small hole in the center. Poke lightly with the tines of a fork. Reroll dough scraps cutting out more cookies until dough is all used up. Bake until just barely browned 7-9 minutes. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  4. When cookies are completely cool, melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set a few inches over a pot of simmering water. One at a time dip the bottom of each cookie lightly in the melted chocolate so that is covered in a thin layer. Transfer back to parchment-lined baking sheets to set. Use the remaining chocolate to create a thin striped pattern over the surface of the cookies. Using a plastic bag it a teeny corner cut out works fabulously. Chill in the fridge until chocolate sets.

I do! We’d always ask her if it took her all night to stamp the cookies and then add stripes. 🙂

Yay! Now you don’t have to print the WHOOOOOOLE post. <3

I haven’t had a fudge stripe cookie in forever, but I used to love them! Of course I ate them off of my finger 🙂 I’m sure your homemade version is as tasty as they are cute! Your babushka doll glass is super cute!
