Cookies and Cream Fudge that is so smooth and creamy made with white chocolate and delicious bits of Oreo cookies. A Holiday favorite fudge recipe!
Fudge can be a challenge to make, but not with this trusted recipe. I have tried a bunch of different Cookies and Cream Fudge recipes and this is my favorite. I adapted this recipe from a super fantastic blogger, Aimee from Shugary Sweets.
Fudge is something I consider an extra special treat, so I splurge by using fine quality white chocolate and a fresh vanilla bean. Pure vanilla extract will also work if you can't find vanilla beans. The marshmallow fluff adds a nice smooth texture to the fudge. I also use it in my Peanut Butter fudge recipe.
Ingredients for making the fudge.
- White Chocolate - I use good quality white chocolate for superior taste and creaminess. This white chocolate is almost always sold in bar form and contains cocoa butter.
- Marshmallow Cream - This is also called marshmallow fluff. I find coating the measuring cup and spoon with a bit of butter makes it easier to remove.
- Sugar - just regular granulated white sugar.
- Heavy Cream - also called whipping cream, at least 35% milkfat.
- Butter - I usually bake with unsalted butter. Salted butter will work just fine, just add a tad less salt to the recipe.
- Vanilla bean- You get superior vanilla flavor using vanilla beans, but they are very expensive and not readily available. Pure vanilla extract is a great substitution.
- Oreo Cookies - Chop into chunks trying to leave the sandwich layer intact. I don't add the crumbs to the fudge as I like a nice separation of cookie chunks and white fudge.
Home-baked treats make terrific gifts. I buy beautiful decorative tins and fill them with decadent fudge. A huge hit, every time!
