Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge

If when reading this title you thought, "This obviously can't be Sherry's post, she doesn't like chocolate!", well that is only half true. I don't like chocolate, but this is Sherry. I can make exceptions. For special occasions. Like a belated Cinco de Mayo party for my Spanish IV class.
This party is just more than a Cinco de Mayo party, though. It is also in remembrance of our previous Spanish teacher, Ms. Susan Fahey, who passed away on Sunday. She was the best teacher I have ever had, and probably ever will have. She was diagnosed with breast cancer many years ago and began homeopathic treatment, as opposed to Chemotherapy. I am a firm believer in natural medicine with little to no pharmaceutical influence. Unfortunately, this was unable to help Ms. Fahey. We were kept somewhat in the loop by our current Spanish teacher, Ms. H, who was very close with Ms. Fahey. Ms. H spent her weekends taking care of Ms. Fahey and running errands for anything she needed. We learned not too long ago that Ms. Fahey was entered into a hospice. Not good. We knew her end was near but continued to send carts and well wishes. Now, we are all hoping to celebrate the wonderful teacher she was. It's what she would want us to do.
This party is meant to celebrate her inspirational life, and that definitely warrants me to step out of my comfort zone and make something I know everyone will enjoy.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge
from One Ordinary Day
1/3 c. melted butter
1/3 c. light brown sugar
3/4 c. all-purpose flour1/2 tsp. kosher salt, divided
1 1/3 c. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
2 c. powdered sugar
8 oz. package softened cream cheese
1 tsp. vanilla
Line an 8- or 9-inch square pan with aluminum foil. Spray with nonstick spray.
Combine butter and brown sugar in a small bowl. Add flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir in 1/3 cup semisweet chips. Roll into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate or freeze until firmed up slightly.
Unwrap dough and cut into 1/2 inch pieces. Refrigerate on a cookie sheet if cookie dough pieces start to soften up.
Melt remaining chips and pour over confectioners’ sugar, cream cheese, remaining 1/4 tsp. salt, and vanilla extract. Beat until smooth. Scrape down and combine until smooth. Fold in cookie dough pieces with a wooden spoon. Spoon into pan, smooth out with back of rubber spatula lightly sprayed with cooking spray, and chill until firm.
Lift fudge out of the pan with foil and cut into pieces. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
ADDED 5/7/10: Upon serving this to my classmates, I was practically mugged for the recipe! Honestly, I got soooo many great reviews! In fact, I'm going to make it again VERY soon. I have never made fudge until now, but I realize I'm in love with it!
