Cookies 'n Cream Fudge

There are a few kinds of dessert recipes I try to stay away from. Not just to avoid a growing waistline, but mostly because they seem intimidating and have a reputation of not being for beginners. Toffee, candy, and fudge are at the top of my list of ones to avoid. Just the thought of thermometers and the never-ending list of things you have to have perfect scares me enough to just move on to something easier. Like opening a bag of Oreos and being done with it.

Until now. I've found a shortcut recipe that makes fudge easy enough for a beginner like me to make without a problem. No thermometers, no fancy tricks. If you like cookies 'n cream ANYTHING, this fudge is perfection. Rich and smooth, you are guaranteed to impress your friends. Especially the ones who are fudge connoisseurs. Plus, you can do what I did and make sure to tell everyone how you slaved over the stove to make it... even though it only took about 10 minutes of real work!

1 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter
1 (5-oz.) can evaporated milk
2 (12-oz.) packages white chocolate chips
1 (7-oz.) jar marshmallow cream
3 cups coarsely crushed cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies {about 25 cookies}
Pinch of salt

  1. Line a greased 9" square pan with aluminum foil and set aside.
    {A 9" square pan will make pretty thick fudge. Use a 9x13" pan for thinner fudge}
  2. Combine first 3 ingredients in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until mixture comes to a boil. Set the timer and cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
  3. Remove from heat. Add in white chocolate chips, marshmallow cream, 2 cups crushed cookies, and salt. Stir until chips are melted and everything is blended.
  4. Pour fudge into prepared pan. Sprinkle remaining 1 cup cookies over fudge, gently pressing cookies into fudge. Cover and chill until firm {about 1 to 2 hours}.
  5. Lift uncut fudge in aluminum foil from pan; remove foil, and cut fudge into squares.
    {I was able to get 25 squares from a 9" square pan}

  14. Did you by any chance mean condensed milk? I tried this and it was a fail...never solidified. :( I was so sad!

  15. I made some and it never solidified...did you mean condensed milk instead of evaporated milk? I want to know what I did wrong, because it looks so yummy!! Thanks!

    1. Nope, I used evaporated milk. Not sure what happened for yours to fail :( So sorry!!

    2. you may have not heated the fudge up enough. it has to be heated to a certain temperature for it to solidify properly :)
