- 3 eggs, beaten
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder

Melt butter in a (very) large bowl. Whisk in the instant coffee and extracts until the coffee is dissolved.
Add sugar, eggs, baking soda and baking powder; mix well.

Next up, Fudge Puddles, aka Puddles-o-YUM! I can't remember where I originally saw this recipe, but when the lovely Tina from Mommy's Kitchen blogged these, I double bookmarked them to make. They are so fabulously rich...perfect with a cold glass of milk!
Cookie Crust recipe:
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 /2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
In a large mixer bowl, combine butter, peanut butter, and both sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla Next, in a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add flour mix to the creamy mixture. Chill in the fridge for at least one hour (or in the freezer for about 15 minutes). Remove from fridge and form into 1" balls.
Add 1 ball to each muffin cup. Bake for about 15 minutes or until very lightly browned. Remove from oven and make an indentation in the center of each ball. I used the handle of my potato masher, cause that's how I roll. Let them cool in the pan for at least 5 minutes and then move to a cooling rack.
Once all of the cookies are done baking, it's time to make the fudge filling.
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup butterscotch chips
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk, 14 ounces
- 1 tsp vanilla
In a microwave safe bowl or saucepan, combine all of the ingredients except the nuts/sprinkles. Microwave for 1 minutes. Stir well. If there are still un-melted chips, continue to melt in microwave for 15 second increments until all smooth:
Immediately start filling the cookie cups with the filling. Work quickly to avoid the mixture hardening up on you. Instead of using a spoon to fill each cup up with, I put the mixture into a Ziploc baggie and snipped the corner off to fill that way. It went MUCH faster. Let set for an hour or until fudgey center has firmed-up.
