Oreo Fudge – The easiest fudge recipe ever! Made with just 4 simple ingredients, this fudge recipe is so tasty and simple to make.
Oreos are a staple at my house and so are any desserts made with them! When have a hankering for an oreo flavored dessert, one of the first things that comes to mind is to make oreo fudge, a simple no bake dessert that is great for parties or to just keep in the freezer so that you can just grab a piece whenever you want! To make oreo fudge, you basically just make white chocolate fudge by cooking sweetened condensed milk, white chocolate chips, and butter together in a pan on the stove top until the mixture is smooth before folding in chopped oreos and transferring it to a pan to set.
There are basically two schools of thought behind homemade fudge – sweetened condensed milk or cooking the sugar, cream, and butter. I am of the group who prefers sweetened condensed milk because it makes making fudge fool-proof and super easy. I burnt my sugar the one time I tried the other method and it just wasn’t worth it. Another thing worth keeping in mind is that you need sweetened condensed milk, not evaporated milk. Evaporated milk will not work in this recipe and it is a super common mistake that people make when making fudge at home.
Another important part of this recipe is that you refrigerate the fudge until it is fully set. If you look back at my red velvet fudge post, you can see the lines where each piece of fudge was cut aren’t quite as smooth and crisp as my oreo fudge. That’s because that one wasn’t 100% set because I was impatient. Don’t be impatient! It will just look a whole lot nicer if you just wait about 3 hours until the fudge sets before digging into it.
