Before you get to the recipe let me answer some questions you might have about this OREO Cookie Fudge. You can find even more answers to the most frequently asked questions on our How To Make Easy Fudge FAQ page.
What type of white chocolate should I use to make Cookies and Cream Fudge?
Basically you want to use a white chocolate product that you enjoy eating straight out of the package. You can use any of the items listed below.
White Chocolate Chips
- I personally used Nestle Premier White Morsels for this easy fudge recipe and the texture and flavor were wonderful.
- These white “chocolate” chips are made using a vegetable oil (palm kernel oil) instead of cocoa butter but have a lovely vanilla flavor that works really well in this fudge recipe. You may also use a pure white chocolate that contains cocoa butter in the ingredients. Both will work fine for this recipe.
White Chocolate Candy Bars
- White chocolate bars are made with cocoa butter which will give your fudge a creamy off-white color.
- Finely chop the chocolate or grate it using a cheese grater so that it melts easily.
White Confectionery Coating, White Candy Melts, White Melting Candy, or White Almond Bark
- All of these items are similar to white chocolate but are made using vegetable oil instead of cocoa butter.
- If you like the flavor of the candy then it will taste great when turned into this OREO Fudge.
- If you don’t enjoy eating the candy straight out of the package do not use it for this easy fudge recipe.
- White chocolate is a bit softer than white confectionery coating so you’ll need to adjust the recipe accordingly.
- If using white confectionery coating chips (no cocoa butter listed in the ingredients) use 16 ounces, if using pure white chocolate (with cocoa butter listed in the ingredients) then use 18 ounces.
Do I have to use OREO Cookies in my Cookies ‘n Cream Fudge?
- Nope! Any chocolate cookie will do, but OREO Cookies are so yummy! They do make a great tasting cookie fudge.
- Actually this fudge would be quite good if you mixed in any of these other cookies too:
- Biscoff Cookies
- Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Nutter Butter Cookies
- Almond Cookies
- Lemon Sandwich Cookies
- Did you know you can use OREO Cookies to make adorable treats like Mini and Mickey Mouse Oreos, Easy OREO Crabs, Pac Man Oreos, and OREO Frogs? These are just a few other great uses for OREO Cookies.
Do I have to make this easy cookies & cream fudge recipe in the microwave?
- No, you can melt the white chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a saucepan on the stove set over low heat.
- It’s always best to melt chocolate slowly over low heat.
- Allow the candy to heat until about 75% of the chocolate has melted, then remove it from the heat, let it rest a few minutes, then stir until smooth.
- This will keep your fudge from getting greasy. If you over-heat the fudge the oils or cocoa butter can seep out of the white chocolate. Don’t worry you can fix it.
What should I do if my fudge becomes greasy?
- Pour the fudge into a clean bowl and allow it to sit and cool for about 15 minutes.
- Then stir the fudge slowly in order to incorporate the oil back into the fudge.
- If it’s still greasy, let it sit a bit longer and repeat.
- It’s important that most of the oil is incorporated back into the fudge or the fudge might become a bit dry.
- To speed up this process you can pour the fudge out onto a marble cutting board, a granite counter top or a metal non-stick cookie sheet and swirl it around, scraping it up and kneading it into itself, until it becomes cool and thickened.
- The fudge will become quite thick so you may have to press the cookie pieces into it then press the fudge down into your pan.
