I think my title perfectly matches the taste of this confection. Try it, you’ll want more. The only problem is it definitely isn’t healthy, think fat and sugar….
Anyway, it would look lovely tied in a cellophane bag for a gift. I think Oreo is my new favourite fudge flavour!
Feel free to double (or triple) the recipe, we did! The Oreos soften a bit once nestled in the fudge, but that doesn’t affect the taste.
“Cupcake” (that’s me) had to provide some treats for her school ‘cake and jelly day’ and these sold out! They were so nice we made them again… and again.
I found the recipe here: http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/26116/cookies+and+cream+fudge and I definitely recommend you taste it.
Lastly, I dedicate this recipe to one of my best friends, Alice.
Yields: 15 pieces fudge
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
395g can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp glucose syrup
125g slightly salted butter, sliced into cubes
200g milk chocolate, roughly chopped
½ 150g packet Oreos, broken in a ziploc bag
Grease a 4cm deep, 20cm square pan and line with baking paper, overlapping a bt over the sides for easy removal later.
Place milk, sugar, syrup and butter in a saucepan over low heat, cooking and stirring without boiling for 10 min and the mixture should thicken.
Increase to medium-low heat and cook for 6-10 min. The mixture should come away from the sides of the pan.
Remove from heat and stir in chocolate and Oreos. C
Cover with plastic wrap and set on the bench for ½ an hour, then place in the refrigerator until firm.
Cut and serve.
-Fudge sets quickly, so move fast when pouring into the pan
-Store fudge for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container once cut
