Come on, who doesn’t love a huge, delicious, chewy slab of fudge?
This sugary dessert is a variety of crystalized sugar confection, created by combining three key ingredients – sugar, butter, and milk – and heating the mixture at around 234 and 237 °F/ 112 and 114 °C until they form a thick, silky liquid. It is then gently churned while it cools down, eventually hardening to produce a smooth, chewy texture.
Although chocolate is probably the most popular flavour of fudge, and the word fudge itself is frequently, incorrectly, used as a shorthand term for the word chocolate, fudge and chocolate are not necessarily the same product: fudge is a lot thicker and chewier, with a higher melting point.
Peppermint, peanut butter, and marshmallow are just a few of the many popular varieties of fudge, along with chocolate.
Today, we are going to be looking at one particular ingredient that is popularly used within fudge recipes: Oreo.
An Oreo, as you presumably already know, is a creme-filled sandwich cookie. Although there are many distinct variations of the cookie itself, the classic form of an Oreo cookie is composed of two chocolate biscuits sandwiched together with a creamy layer in between.
With so many different flavors and variations of both fudge and Oreos, the combination possibilities seem endless. What are the best Oreo Fudge recipes? Where would one even begin to search for these sweet treats?
