Yields 18 pieces
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 tsp salt
- 1 1/8 cup miniature marshmallows
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (or white chocolate candy melts)
- 3/4 cup of crushed oreo cookies, divided
1. In a saucepan, combine the cream, sugar, salt, marshmallows and butter.
2. Cook over medium heat and stir until all ingredients are melted and the mixture starts to boil. Once it boils, continue cooking for 3minutes.
3. Turn heat to low, and add in the white chocolate. Stir until the chocolate is well incorporated and fully melted.
4. Turn off the heat; add in a 1/2 cup of the crushed oreo cookies and continue stirring the mixture.
5. Pour the mixture into a foil-lined and well greased 9x3inch loaf pan. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of crushed oreo cookies ontop of the fudge.
6. Allow the fudge to cool at room temperature for at least 3 hours. Remove fudge from the pan, slice into 18 bite-sized cubes.
I was amazed at how simple fudge-making could be. I found a lot of recipes online that used condensed milk and marshmallow cream, of which I had neither... so, I modified a handful of recipes I found that utilized heavy cream (because I had a ton of it!) and decided to create my own versions of this sweet treat. The Cookies and Cream Fudge tastes almost exactly like the one I buy from the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory; so, if you're not wanting to spend $4.99 on 1/4th of a slice of fudge make your own... you'll be glad you did.
My sisters had a lot of fun packaging the fudge treats into cellophane bags and making Christmas cards for their teachers; and, if my sisters' opinion of the candy is any indication of their deliciousness then I'm sure their teachers will love them too.
