The bird has been devoured and now it is on to Christmas. The holidays are filled with sweets, treats and all things delicious. Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without my Mom's fudge. This recipe has been in my family for generations. It is a simple classic fudge recipe but I like to add in extra yummy treats. This time - crushed Oreo cookies. This fudge is exceptionally rich but so smooth and delectable. The pan will be devoured in no time at all! This is also perfect for neighbor gifts this holiday season.
Chocolate Oreo Fudge
1 12 ounce can evaporated milk
4 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 12 ounce package semi sweet chocolate chips
1 13 ounce jar marshmallow cream
4- 1.55 ounce Hershey's milk chocolate bars, chopped
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups crushed Oreo cookies
1. In a large saucepan, heat the evaporated milk and sugar until boiling. Continue heating over medium-high heat and at a low boil for about 10-12 minutes, or until it has reached the soft ball stage. (Check this by adding a small drop to a bowl of cold water. If you can roll it into a soft ball, it is ready.)
2. In a mixer, add the butter, chocolate chips, marshmallow cream, and chocolate bar chunks. Pour in the milk and sugar mixture and whip until all the ingredients are melted and smooth. Add in vanilla extract. Stir in the Oreo's.
3. Pour directly into a greased 9X13 pan and refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.
I hope you enjoy these treats! Happy Holidays!
