My Oreo Fudge recipe makes a dessert to please all of your senses: a delicate vanilla and chocolate scent, creamy texture layered with crunchy cookies, a rich flavor, and an absolutely gorgeous presentation that’ll kick your sweet cravings into overdrive! As for sound — you’ll hear a million compliments from friends and family once they take their first bite of this glorious Oreo white fudge!!
Vanilla and chocolate… need I say more? It’s the most traditional pairing in dessert history!
This is a “cookies and cream” type of 4 ingredient fudge that you can make quickly on a whim.
Since we’re already talking about Oreos… I want to share some of my favorite recipes!!
I’ll stop here, but there’s plenty more where that came from!
What You’ll Need for 4 Ingredient Fudge
- White Chocolate Chips – The chocolate needs to melt properly, so you can’t go with just any chocolate bar. Melting wafers and baking chocolate are best.
- Condensed Milk – This ingredient is the only way to get a deep, decadent, and creamy consistency.
The only substitute I’d recommend is heavy cream sweetened with sugar — but it’s still not quite the same!
- Oreos – Our creamy Oreo fudge recipe pairs perfectly with all sorts of cookies, as well as all of those fun, seasonal Oreo flavors.
Hazelnut, marshmallow, golden — even those novelty java chip and toffee cookies! Give them a try and let us know how it goes!
- Salt – A little bit of salt is important to balance all of the sweet flavors. It’s the deciding factor between mediocre and magnificent homemade Oreo fudge.
How to Make Mouthwatering, Decadent Oreo White Fudge
- The quality of the white chocolate is incredibly important!
The white chocolate is what makes this Oreo white fudge unique and delicious.
So it goes without saying that the white chocolate you use makes a world of difference in taste and texture!
I personally like to use Ghiradelli chocolates. They melt in the most lovely, luscious way.
Godiva is also excellent, though I prefer their milk and dark chocolates, and Merckens is a really safe bet because it’s specifically marketed for melting.
- Speed is key.
After the contents of the pot are uniformly mixed, time is of the essence!! This Oreo fudge sets quickly!!
Remove from the heat and immediately pour the mixture into the pan.
Once it’s in the pan, you still need to keep moving!
Quickly scrape the excess from the pot and smooth everything out in the pan, lightly tapping it on the counter so that the surface is level.
- Press for an impressive topping.
That crumbled topping is part of what makes this Oreo fudge so scrumptious — it’s all about that mix of textures.
However, it’s not going to settle and work out on its own! After sprinkling the topping onto the surface, take a moment to gently press down with your hands.
Don’t press down too hard or you’ll indent the candy. Do so with just enough pressure to embed the crumbles into the surface.
Storing and Freezing
This simple 4 ingredient fudge lasts for up to 3 weeks in the fridge as long as it’s stored well in an airtight container.
It’s for this reason that I like to slice, wrap, and store portions individually so that the rest of it doesn’t dry out prematurely as everyone goes into the fridge for a slice!
Oreo fudge also freezes really well for months! Just let the slices thaw in the fridge for a couple of hours, or overnight, before serving.
Kitchen Tools You Will Need
- A good 8×8 Pan is great for making fudges of all flavors! You could also use a 9×9 Pan, but the candy will be thinner.
- Large Saucepan – Choose a heavy-bottomed one so the heat is distributed more evenly and doesn’t burn the contents.
- A sturdy silicone spatula can be used for scraping, stirring, and smoothing and is easy to clean too!
Oreo Fudge Recipe FAQ
We all know that white chocolate isn’t really chocolate, right? It’s a cocoa butter, sugar, and milk mixture.
It’s very smooth and creamy with a buttery, vanilla taste. Delicious!
I use a careful method that maintains the texture and integrity of the Oreo white fudge.
Give it an hour at room temperature to solidify and cool, then another two hours in the fridge to harden the rest of the way. This is the best way to prevent the sugar from crystallizing and making the candy dry and crumbly.
The cookie cream is made mostly of sugar and vegetable oil. It’s also flavored with vanilla!
With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.
