  2. Cookies & Cream Fudge Recipe

Fudge doesn’t really need an introduction. I must admit, I often use this…cheating – or shall we say easier? – method for making fudge. This utilizes marshmallow cream and doesn’t require hand beating the fudge tirelessly, hoping to achieve the correct consistency. I decided cookies and cream fudge was in order because it’s a fun update on the usual chocolate or peanut butter ones I make.

This is a definite Christmas treat: sweet and very decadent!

Cookies & Cream Fudge

5 from 1 vote
A modern take on an old-school dessert, this recipe is a quicker and simpler way to make fudge. Oreos bring incredible flavor and texture, while marshmallow and vanilla add lightness.
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Resting Time 4 hours
Total Time 4 hours 40 minutes
Servings 12

Ingredients

  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 7-oz jar marshmallow creme
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter
  • 11 oz white chocolate
  • 2 tsp vanilla bean paste (or vanilla extract)
  • 2 cups crushed Oreo cookies

Instructions
 

  • Line a 9×9 baking dish with parchment paper and set aside. Also, have the marshmallow cream, white chocolate, and Oreos prepared and ready.
  • Bring sugar, milk, and butter to a low boil over medium-high heat. Depending on the stove, the temperature may need to be adjusted so the mixture does not boil too hard and scorch on the bottom.
  • Stir constantly and bring to 235-238°F on a candy or instant-read thermometer.
  • Remove from heat and add white chocolate, vanilla bean paste, and marshmallow creme. Stir until smooth. Then mix in 1 ½ cups crushed Oreos.
  • Pour into the prepared baking dish and top with remaining ½ cup Oreos, pressing slightly to make them adhere. Let cool 4-6 hours.
  • Using the parchment as a sling, remove from baking dish and cut into small pieces. Be sure to store in airtight containers so the fudge does not dry out.

  1. Hi there! I’m wondering if there could possibly be a typo in the recipe for the Cookies & Cream Fudge?? The recipe calls for 17 oz. jar of marshmallow creme. For one thing I can’t find 17 oz. jars and if you need 17 ounces of marshmallow creme, then you need 3 jars. Because the jars are each 7 ounces. So, I bought 3 jars but now I’m having a hard time measuring 17 ounces! Maybe the recipe means “one 7 ounce jar”. Enough of my rambling! Ha! I would really appreciate your help! I wanted to make this for Xmas but I know you’re busy!! Thank you in advance for your help!

    Take care and Merry Christmas!
