Ingredients in Cookies and Cream Fudge
This easy no-bake fudge recipe is essentially white chocolate fudge studded with chunks of Oreo cookies. Yum!
Here’s what goes into this cookies and cream fudge recipe:
- White chocolate
- Sweetened condensed milk
What Kind of White Chocolate Should I Use?
I like to use Ghirardelli White Chocolate Melting Wafers. Not only is it quality chocolate, but it’s made for melting, so it won’t become gloppy like white chocolate chips.
How to make Cookies and Cream Fudge
In less than 10 minutes, you’ll have this white chocolate Oreo fudge ready to go…it really is that easy!
- To start, line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper and make sure that it hangs over the sides of pan so that you can lift it out once the fudge is set. This results in easy cleanup and no messy pan!
- Then, crush about 20 Oreo cookies. You can keep them on the chunky side, or crush them into smaller pieces, like I did. It’s up to you!
- The easiest method to crush the cookies are to add them into a large ziploc bag, seal, and then beat with the bottom of a glass. Easy peasy!
- Once the cookies are crushed, set the aside. Add some good quality white chocolate into a large bowl, along with a can of sweetened condensed milk.
- Microwave the chocolate mixture for about 3 minutes, or until white chocolate is melted. Be sure to stir about every 30 seconds or so, so that the chocolate doesn’t burn. Mixture will be thick and that is normal!
- Add the cookies to the mixture and stir. Spread into prepared pan with a spatula and top with a few more cookie pieces, if desired.
And that’s it! The fudge will be hardened and ready to eat in about 45 minutes. I like to let it set in the fridge to speed up the process, but you can leave the pan at room temperature as well.
Fudge Variations to Try
- Add a drizzle of milk or dark chocolate on top of the fudge!
- Add some red and green chocolate chips on top of fudge before it sets for a festive flair!
- Line the bottom of the baking pan with Oreo cookies and then spread fudge mixture over it. That way, the cookies on the bottom act as a crust.
How to Store Oreo Fudge
This white chocolate Oreo fudge should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature. It will last up to 2 weeks, noting that the Oreo cookies may become stale over time.
Tips for Making This No-Bake Fudge
- Be sure to use a non-stick baking pan and parchment paper. This will allow for easy removal of the fudge and easy cleanup, too!
- Like I mentioned above, a good quality white chocolate is key for this recipe, as you will be able to taste it. Ghirardelli White Chocolate Melting Wafers are my favorite, but any quality bar or chips would work, too.
- Using the microwave to melt the white chocolate and sweetened condensed milk is the easiest (and fastest) way to heat the mixture. However, you could add the ingredients into a saucepan and warm over medium heat until mixture is melted.

Cookies and Cream Fudge
- 20 Oreo cookies
- 18 ounces good quality white chocolate, (I used Ghirardelli White Chocolate Melting Wafers)
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- Line an 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper so that it hangs over sides for easy removal. Set aside.
- Place cookies into a large ziplock bag and let most of the air out, then seal. Lightly pound bag with the bottom of a glass or rolling pin until cookies are crushed into your desired texture. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, add white chocolate and sweetened condensed milk. Microwave on medium power for about 3 minutes, or until chocolate is melted. Be sure to stir every 15-30 seconds so chocolate does not burn. Mixture will be thick, and that is normal.
- Add crushed cookies (reserving a small handful for the top of fudge) into chocolate mixture and stir to combine. Using a spatula, spread into prepared pan. Add reserved cookies on top and lightly press down.
- Let set at room temperature for about 45 minutes until hardened. You can also place into the refrigerator. Once fudge is ready, lift out of pan by overhang of parchment paper and cut into squares.
