If you’re looking for a minimal effort treat that’s easy to make and tastes incredible, then this Oreo fudge is for you my friend! Just like Biscoff fudge, this recipe is made in just 15 minutes with NO special equipment, then the fridge does the hard work for you. Sounds great right?! Read on to learn just how easy Oreo fudge is to make…

So it’s worth pointing out that this isn’t traditional fudge. It’s a ‘cheat’ fudge. By cheat I mean that there’s no thermometer, you’re not boiling sugar for ages over a stove, nor do you need to understand the science of making fudge.

Cheat fudge is made using condensed milk and chocolate. It’s SUPER easy! You don’t need a thermometer and you don’t even need to use the stove!

And the best bit is, once you’ve mastered it once, you can start changing up the flavours by using different chocolates and fillings. The possibilities are endless!

  1. Roughly chop Oreo cookies.

  4. Pour a little fudge into your pan and smooth out.

Is Oreo fudge expensive to make?

It depends what ingredients you choose to use. Oreos themselves tend to be on offer quite frequently so keep an eye out for that to save some pennies. As for the white chocolate, I’ve made this using the supermarket own brand 100g bars (that only cost about 30p) and it still tasted incredible! That being said, you’re more than welcome to use a more expensive branded version but it will obviously cost you a lot more, given that you need 500g.

Oreo fudge ingredients

You only need 5 ingredients to make Oreo fudge. Here’s everything you need to know…

  • Oreos – It goes without saying that the real deal works best here. You can use other brands if you wish but they won’t be quite as good.
  • White Chocolate – Good brands like Milky Bar and Lindt take it up a notch but cheap 100g supermarket own brand bars work just as well.
  • Butter – I always use unsalted. If you only have salted, it will work but may change the flavour very slightly.
  • Condensed Milk – Sweetened condensed milk can usually be found down the baking aisle. Any brand will work.
  • Vanilla – A good quality vanilla like Nielsen Massey works perfectly here. Supermarket own brands don’t have much flavour.

Oreo fudge recipe tips and troubleshooting

Still not confident enough to dive straight in? Here’s some helpful tips to guide you through it…

  • Use the best quality vanilla extract you can afford. You can really taste the difference!
  • Try to keep some slightly chunkier pieces of Oreos, it really adds to the texture.
  • Don’t be tempted to mix the chopped Oreos through the fudge. It will turn it a murky grey colour.
  • Remember to push the decorative Oreos into the top or they will fall off once set.
  • Place your silicone pan onto a baking tray before you fill it. This will make it easier to transfer to the fridge.

  • My fudge stuck to my silicone pan – Pop it into the freezer for 10 minutes then try again, it should work.
  • The fudge looks a horrible grey colour – You mixed the Oreos into the fudge which changes the colour. Layer them instead.

Easy Oreo Fudge Recipe

(For a printer friendly version, see the recipe card at the end of this post)

  • 135g (4.8 oz) Oreos
  • 500g (17.5 oz) White Chocolate
  • 55g (1/4 Cup) Unsalted Butter
  • 397g (14 oz) Tin of Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

 

Essential Equipment

  • Chopping Board
  • Sharp Knife
  • Large Glass Bowl
  • Microwave *
  • Spatula
  • 20cm (8″) Square Silicone Pan †

 

*If you don’t have a microwave, you can use a large saucepan set over a low heat and achieve the same thing.

First, roughly chop the Oreos (135g | 4.8 oz), leaving a few larger pieces for added texture. Set to one side until we need them later.

Next, break the white chocolate (500g | 17.5 oz) into your glass bowl then add the butter (55g | 1/4 Cup), condensed milk (397g | 14 oz tin) and vanilla (1/2 tsp).

Now melt the ingredients in 20 second intervals in the microwave. Make sure you stir it very well each time and don’t overheat it. It should become thick and smooth.

(Tip – Place your silicone pan on a baking tray, this will make it much easier to transfer to the fridge!)

Working quickly, pour a third of the fudge into your silicone pan (or lined tin if you don’t have a silicone one).

Then push it to the edges and scatter over some of the chopped Oreos.

Now place your fudge into the fridge to set for at least 4 hours or overnight. Once it’s completely set, remove from the pan and cut into 36 bite size pieces.

Store your Oreo fudge in an airtight container in the fridge and consume within 7 – 10 days.

    This looks lush but Any subtitute for vanilla as there seems to be s vanilla shortage due to poor harvest

    1. Emma says:

      There isn’t really a substitute for vanilla I’m afraid. In this recipe you could just leave it out though. The Oreos and white chocolate should be enough to flavour it on their own. Emma x

  2. Samina says:

    Just made it now and tbh this is really easy and simple! I’m not the best at baking at all and this is just perfect! It’s very quick and easy and very yum! The only downside is that it isn’t healthy at all but then again no dessert is!!????????

      My motto is ‘If you’re going to do something wrong, do it right!’ This definitely applies to Oreo fudge! Insanely delicious but deadly to the waistline haha. SO glad you like it! And thank you so much for commenting, it’s always great to get feedback 🙂

  3. cithryth says:

    I made this today using dark chocolate instead of white chocolate and it is absolutely divine! I couldn’t believe how easy it was. Definitely will be my go-to treat to bring to get -togethers from now on! Thank you so much for this!

    1. No problem! Thanks for letting me know how good it is with dark chocolate, I haven’t tried that combo yet 🙂 x

  4. I like finding new ways to use Oreos. This fudge looks delicious!

  5. Ive made Oreo bark before but this looks just as yummy!

    1. Thanks! I hope you give it a try 🙂

  6. oh lord. they look like diabetes and heaven on a plate all put together. they look amazing! x

  7. I have been told by fudge makers to never put fudge in the fridge, as it will dry it out. Do you not find that to be the case?

    1. It’s not a traditional fudge recipe. I stored mine in the fridge in a metal tin and didn’t notice any drying out at all. I know what you mean though, with traditional fudge I have made – it has dried a little in the fridge. This recipe seems to be fine though x

      1. Ok good to know. Will give it a shot. Thanks!

  8. shinaj1 says:

    Oh my! This is going to get me in trouble. Cookie’s n Cream is my all time favorite candy, ice cream etc. You name it, I am obsessed with all things Oreos. 🙂 I’m going to treat myself to Oreo fudge one of these days and I’ll let you know how much weight I gained after probably devouring the entire pan. 🙂

    1. Haha its a very dangerous recipe! Thank you for the kind words 🙂
