How to make White Fudge Oreos
Mix all ingredients
- Cut the white chocolate finely with a knife so that it melts more easily and quickly.
- Then place in a saucepan, the white chocolate chopped sweetened condensed milk, softened butter, vanilla extract and salt.
- Heat over medium heat while stirring constantly with a spatula or wooden spoon until completely melted.
Add crushed Oreos
- Coarsely cut the Oreo cookies with your hands so that they are small but not powdery.
- Remove the fudge mixture from the heat and add the oreo cookies in pieces.
- Stir with a spatula until the mixture is smooth.
Allow to cool
- Pour the chocolate mixture into a square baking pan lined with parchment paper.
- Smooth the fudge over the entire surface of the pan with an angled spatula or the back of a tablespoon until you have a smooth layer.
- Immediately add the Oreo cookie pieces on top and press lightly with your fingers until you have a smooth layer.
- Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours until the Oreo fudge is completely chilled.
- Once cool and hard, remove the white chocolate fudge from the pan and place on a flat surface.
- Using a large knife, cut out small squares of chocolate.

Storage and Freeze
Room temperature: White chocolate oreo fudge can be stored at room temperature, placed in an airtight container with a lid, and protected from moisture for several weeks.
In the freezer: Place in storage bags or in a box to keep chocolate fudge in the freezer for up to 3 months. Let them thaw gently at room temperature.
Tips for this recipe
- Use High-Quality White Chocolate: Choose a reputable brand of white chocolate chips or bars with at least 30% cocoa butter for the best flavor and texture.
- Double Boiler or Microwave Method: Melt the white chocolate using a double boiler or in the microwave. If using the microwave, heat in short 20-30 second bursts, stirring in between, to prevent overheating and burning.
- Stir Constantly: When melting the white chocolate, stir continuously to ensure it melts evenly and doesn't scorch.
- Room Temperature Ingredients: Make sure your sweetened condensed milk and butter are at room temperature before adding them to the melted white chocolate. This prevents the mixture from seizing or becoming too thick.
- Quick Pour and Spread: Once the cookie pieces are incorporated, promptly pour the fudge mixture into your prepared pan and spread it evenly. White chocolate can set quickly, so work efficiently.
- Chill Until Set: Allow the fudge to set in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 hours or until it is firm to the touch. This ensures a clean and easy cut when slicing.
- Cut with a Warm Knife: To achieve clean slices, heat a sharp knife under hot water and wipe it dry before each cut. This helps prevent the fudge from sticking to the knife.
Mint Chocolate Oreo Fudge: Elevate your fudge with a touch of refreshing peppermint extract and the addition of crushed mint chocolate cookies for a delightful minty-chocolate experience.
Peanut Butter Oreo Fudge: Introduce a creamy peanut butter swirl into your fudge, enhancing its flavor profile with a rich and nutty dimension, and consider topping it with chopped peanut butter cups for extra indulgence.
Double Chocolate Oreo Fudge: Dive into a world of chocolate by using dark or semi-sweet chocolate instead of white chocolate, and don't forget to incorporate both crushed Oreo cookies and mini chocolate chips for an irresistible double-chocolate delight.
Nutty Oreo Fudge: Enhance your fudge's texture and flavor by gently stirring in your favorite chopped nuts, such as walnuts, pecans, or almonds, and consider adding a layer of caramel between the fudge and nuts for an extra layer of decadence.
Fruity Oreo Fudge: Add a delightful twist with dried fruits like cherries, cranberries, or apricots to provide a sweet and tangy contrast to the fudge's sweetness, and explore fruit-infused white chocolate flavors, such as raspberry or strawberry, for an extra burst of fruity goodness.
Rocky Road Oreo Fudge: Create a rocky road-inspired treat by folding mini marshmallows and chopped nuts, typically walnuts, into the fudge for a delightful contrast of textures, and enhance the experience with a drizzle of melted chocolate.
