Oreo White Chocolate Fudge AKA Cookies and Cream Fudge takes the classic No-Fail Fudge recipe in a new delicious direction! White chocolate lovers will adore this easy peasy confection.
Oreo White Chocolate Fudge
In this neck of the woods, I’m famous for a few sweets. Namely, my Classic English Toffee, Chewy Gingersnaps, and my No-Fail Fudge. The fudge recipe is on the back of the jar of marshmallow creme, so it’s no big secret, but I do have a few tricks to make it perfect every time. This Oreo White Chocolate Fudge is a simple riff on the popular no-fail chocolate fudge recipe. White chocolate instead of semisweet plus some chopped up Oreos. The family went crazy for this easy Cookies and Cream Fudge!
Easy Fudge Recipe
This Oreo fudge is super simple, but to ensure perfect results, you’ll want a candy thermometer. The original recipe has you boil the sugary mixture for 5 minutes, but it’s hard to know exactly when to start timing. When it starts bubbling??? Or when it comes to a rolling boil??
If you’re willing to invest in a candy thermometer, it will make the process a little more precise. You boil until the thermometer reaches exactly 234°. Plus, you’ll be able to make my toffee, caramels and even fry chicken at the proper temperature with an accurate temperature gauge.
More Tips for No-Fail Fudge:
Besides using a candy thermometer, I also like to pop the lid on the pot just as the mixture starts to boil. That helps melt any stray sugar crystals which could possibly recrystallize if not completely molten. But keep the lid on for less than a minute so you can keep good track of the temperature.
Adding marshmallow creme may seem odd if you’re used to your grandmother’s recipe without any processed ingredients. It plays an important role, though, as it prevents the melted sugar from recrystallizing. This addition is key to making this a true no-fail fudge!

Line an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with non-stick foil. Set aside.
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Add sugar and heavy cream and stir to combine. Heat until it's almost ready to boil, then put the lid on for about a minute to help the sugar melt.
Remove the lid, stir and insert a non-stick foil. Let boil, stirring occasionally until the thermometer reaches 234º.
Remove from heat and mix in the chopped white chocolate and marshmallow creme, stirring until chocolate is melted and marshmallow cream is incorporated.
Quickly add chopped Oreos, then carefully scrape hot mixture into your prepared pan. Smooth top with an offset spatula, then let cool to room temperature. Place in refrigerator, covered to chill before cutting.
