Cookies n’ Cream Fudge

This Halloween was the first year we took our daughter trick or treating.  She’s one.  So as you know, she can’t really EAT the candy she got.  So one night our friend Morgan came over and we were all pawing through the goodies from trick or treat and Morgan mentioned several times that the cookies n cream candy was her favorite.  Then lo and behold, I came across a recipe on Elizabeth’s Edible Experience that featured cookies and cream fudge!  Morgan is one person on my Christmas list that I have a hard time shopping for.  However, she doesn’t cook but I do, so the last couple of years I’ve given her a goody basket of treats.  I knew this had to go in the basket!

Cookies n’ Cream Fudge

Ingredients:

1 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter
1 (5-oz.) can evaporated milk
2 packages white chocolate chips
1 small jar marshmallow cream
3 cups coarsely chopped Oreos
pinch of salt

Method:

Line a greased casserole with aluminum foil, then spray the foil with cooking spray; set aside. 

Combine the sugar, butter and evaporated milk in a heavy bottomed pan.  Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until mixture comes to a boil.  Cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat, add the white chocolate morsels and salt, stirring until the chocolate melts completely.  Add the marshmallow cream, mix well then add 2 cups of the crushed cookies.  Combine well.  Pour into the casserole dish and smooth out using a spatula.  Sprinkle the remaining cup of crushed cookies evenly over the top and gently press them in to the fudge. 

Chill in the refrigerator until firm, one to two hours.  Lift from casserole using the foil, remove foil and cut into squares.

The Verdict:  This is ubelievable!  My husband normally does NOT like fudge but even he loves this.  The cookies give it some texture, which is a nice change from the gloppy fudge we’re all used to!  Oh and Morgan loved it too!
