Oreo fudge uses only three simple ingredients and takes less than 15 minutes to prepare. Then all you need to do is let the fudge set. Make a huge batch and gift it to family and friends, or it’s perfect for a holiday tray as well.
When it comes to Oreos in our house, we almost always have a few packages available. I feel like there are so many easy no-bake recipes that use Oreos and this recipe is one that comes to mind because it’s so easy to make you put the ingredients together and let it set and you’re done.
When it comes to making fudge, there are two types to consider: the first one uses sugar, cream, and butter; the other, my favorite, uses sweetened condensed milk. I like this option because you don’t have to worry about burning your sugar; it’s really a foolproof option.

oreo fudge ingredients you will need
- White Chocolate I like to use good quality white chocolate but I have used a generic brand and it has worked well too
- Oreos I like to use traditional Oreos, but you can use a golden Oreo or a cool mint Oreo. I have even used birthday cake Oreos when I found them all delicious options.
- Sweetened Condensed Milk I use full-fat sweetened condensed milk because I’ve discovered that using a low-fat option changes the consistency.
How to make Oreo Fudge
- Prepare the baking dish Using parchment paper, line a baking or casserole dish.
- Crush Oreos Crush 5 Oreo cookies into fine crumbs. I like to blend them in a food processor, but you can put them in a Ziploc and crush them.
- Melt Place sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips in a double boiler; I find it warms up slowly instead of in a microwave, where you have more of a chance of it burning.
- Cookie Crumbs mix in Oreo cookie crumbs into the chocolate chip mixture and pour directly into the prepared pan.
- Chill allow to chill and set
Oreo Fudge Variations
- Chocolate chips use semi-sweet or milk chocolate
- Lemon Use lemon Oreos and add lemon extract to chocolate and sweetened condensed milk.
- Peanut butter used semi-sweet chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons of warmed-up peanut butter to the mixture.
- Mint use mint Oreos and add ½ teaspoon of mint extract to the chocolate mixture and you will have mint chocolate oreo fudge.
- Parchment paper Line your pan with parchment paper and leave some excess hanging over the edge; this makes it easier to remove from the pan when it is time to cut the fudge into squares.
- Cut when it’s cold Allow the fudge to cool in the fridge and then cut right away. Once it comes to room temperature, it starts to soften quite a bit, so you want to cut it while it’s still very cold.
- Double boiler or microwave Melting the chocolate in a double boiler is best so that you don’t risk scorching your chocolate, or place it in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time. If you try to melt it in a pot, it will become grainy and will burn the chocolate.
Frequently Asked Questions About making oreo fudge
Do I have to use sweetened condensed milk?
No, many fudge recipes call for a mixture of cream and sugar, but I have not had the greatest luck with that combination. I find the sugar burns too easily, and the consistency is different than when you use sweetened condensed milk to make Oreo fudge.
What type of Oreos should I use?
Any type of Oreo will work in this recipe; there always seems to be a new variety of Oreo, but here are a few suggestions:
- Chocolate Oreos
- Golden Oreos
- Red Velvet Oreos
- Toffee Crunch
- Caramel Crunch
- Birthday Cake Oreo (this is my second favorite kind of oreo 😊)
- Oreo Mint
How long does this Oreo fudge last?
You can store homemade fudge in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks or in the fridge for 3 weeks, but I find it doesn’t stick around very long once people taste it. It seems to mysteriously vanish.
Can you freeze this homemade oreo fudge?
Yes, you can freeze the fudge in an airtight container for up to 3 months and then thaw it until it comes up to room temperature, and if you have cut it into squares, you can cut it then.
Easy Oreo Fudge
- 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
- 12 oz white chocolate chips
- 10 Oreo Cookies
- Line a 9 by 9" baking dish with parchment paper. In a small saucepan heat the condensed milk and white chocolate chips over medium heat, stirring constantly until completely melted. Remove from heat.
- Place all but 4 OREOs in a large plastic bag and break into large chunks-you don't want them broken too small but at least into thirds or quarters.
- Mix the cookies into the chocolate mixture and pour into the prepared pan. Take the last 4 cookies in the bag and crush into small pieces. Sprinkle over the top of the fudge and gently pat into the top with the back of a spoon.
- Refrigerate at least an hour to set. Cut into 1.5" squares to serve. Makes 25 pieces.
