Let’s talk for a minute about being stuffed. Not typically something that’s super enjoyable! Think about it….who likes the feeling of being stuffed after an enormous meal, or the struggle to stuff yourself into a pair of skinny jeans, or trying to stuff one more thing into your already overstuffed freezer, or those times when you have to stuff one too many people into a small space (like an elevator!?) Not this girl!! Let’s face it! In MOST realms of life, being stuffed is NOT a good thing!!

BUT. When it comes to the world of food, being stuffed is an entirely different story. In the world of food, there’s almost nothing better than being stuffed…! Some of the very BEST foods are those that are stuffed – think jalapeno poppers, stuffed mushrooms, Thanksgiving turkey, stuffed burgers, stuffed French toast, stuffed shells…..the list goes on and on! If you ask me, stuffing something takes it from good to great, from ordinary to extraordinary, from delicious to delectable!

And as long as we’re going to eat something….it might as well be delectable, right? That’s my theory with most foods, but especially when it comes to desserts. They MUST be worth the calories! Now, fudge is one of those things that is almost ALWAYS worth the calories, but just to be sure, I decided to stuff this creamy peanut butter one with none other than edible (egg-free) cookie dough….for a treat that is not just worth it, but so delicious you might dream about it!  (Exactly the way desserts should be!!)
