Fudge-Filled Dessert Strips

There are really only two things you need to know about this:
1. They are easier to make than they sound.
2. They are not at all healthy.

It makes four logs, so we're going to keep two and I think I will take two to work tomorrow. They seem like they'd be good for parties or even bake sales, too. These are freaking delicious!

Edit on 1/25/10: I took two logs to work and they were gone VERY quickly!!!! Hooray! I'm glad people liked them!


Fudge-Filled Dessert Strips
Taste of Home

1 cup butter, softened
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
2 cups chopped walnuts
Confectioners' sugar, optional

In a large bowl, cream butter and cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually add the flour and mix well.

Turn onto lightly floured surface; knead until smooth, about 3 minutes. Divide dough into fourths; cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until easy to handle.

In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and milk; stir until smooth. Stir in walnuts. Cool to room temperature.

Roll out each portion of dough onto an ungreased baking sheet into an 11-in. x 6-1/2-in. rectangle. Spread 3/4 cup chocolate filling down the center of each rectangle. Fold long sides to the center; press to seal all edges. Turn over so the seam sides are down.

Bake at 350° for 27-32 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Cut into 1/2-in. slices. Dust with confectioners' sugar if desired.

Yield: 3 dozen
