Smooth and creamy vanilla fudge filled with Golden Oreos and sprinkles. Easy to prepare and even easier to eat!
I had the best weekend at home in Philly. It was my parents’ 40th anniversary and my sister Sarah was in town from St. Louis. I love it when the whole fam is together again! We had a huge BBQ yesterday and I made key lime pie squares to celebrate. Besides a snafu with my credit card information (stolen – someone tried to spend $5K on children’s SHOES) and finding a huge nail in my car tire, it was such a relaxing weekend with the fam.
PS: Yes, we went to the King of Prussia mall. My home away from home. I splurged on a new dress for a few weddings we have this fall. It’s totally gorgeous.
So… this fudge.
It’s been way too long since I posted a funfetti recipe. Surely 6 days is long enough… right? Is has, however, been way too long since I’ve made fudge. Creamy, silky, melt-in-your mouth fudge. Sickeningly sweet in the best way possible.
I was never a huge fan of making fudge until a year or so ago. I always thought the whole task was daunting – there’s candy thermometers, precise temperatures, sugar syrups, etc. Not for me! While I love a smooth, decadent fudge recipe, wasting time over a boiling pot waiting for sugar to concentrate sounds like a nightmare to me. But who knew you could skip all that? All of my fudge recipes are crazily simply. Bare minimum effort. Hardly any work involved. Melt stuff together and let it chill – that’s about it.
I never knew making fudge was so easy!
Sprinkles and Golden Oreos go together like carrots and peas, crackers and cheese, honey and bees. I secretly like the golden/vanilla version better than regular Oreos. Although the mint creme and birthday cake versions are up there as well. Oh! Has anyone tried the Lemon Twist Oreos yet?! There are so many flavors of Oreos, I can’t quite keep up.
You may use any variety of Oreos for this fudge. Crushed Oreos will be stirred into the fudge AND sprinkled on top of the fudge. There’s a ton of Oreos in each bite. Look at all of them peeking out in the sides of the fudge! Deeee-lish.
You only need 7 ingredients to make today’s colorful fudge – 8 if you include the sprinkles. But sprinkles aren’t an ingredient; they’re a necessity. Duh.
Sugar, butter, and evaporated milk are all boiled together for a few minutes. No candy thermometer needed, just stir and allow to boil. That’s it. Then, grab some white chocolate chips and a bit of marshmallow creme (aka Fluff). Stir that in until smooth. That may be the hardest step because the Fluff is so darn thick. Lots of stirring! Get your arm muscles ready for a mini workout.
Next, add some vanilla extract and crumbled Oreos. Stir stir stir. Spread into a pan and top with more Oreos and a very generous amount of sprinkles. However many sprinkles you’re comfortable with. Surely I test my sprinkle limits over on Sally’s Baking Addiction.
Allow the fudge to chill for at least 3 hours. Ugh – I know, I hate waiting too. But if the end result is funfetti, it’s completely worth it. Do something else to occupy your time like gawk over Anthropologie’s adorable baking supplies or get lost on my Fall Harvest Pinterest board.
Cut the fudge squares however big or small you like. I prefer smaller squares because this stuff is pretty sweet like most fudge recipes. One or two small squares was enough – I don’t want my dentist pounding down my door! If you can muster up the generosity to share this divine fudge, it makes a wonderful gift for friends and family. Who doesn’t love Oreos and sprinkles? ♥
Minimum amount of prep work involved, minimum amount of ingredients, and the end result is THIS amazingness? It’s dangerous how simple this funfetti-overloaded fudge is to make. Consider yourself warned.
Smooth and creamy vanilla fudge filled with Golden Oreos and sprinkles. Easy to prepare and even easier to eat! This recipe may easily be doubled in a 9x13 pan.
Yield: 36 squares
Prep Time: 15
Cook Time: 5
Total Time: 3 hours, 20 minutes
Line an 8x8 baking pan with aluminum foil. Set aside.
Combine sugar, butter, and evaporated milk together in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly for 3 minutes or until the butter is completely melted. Turn the heat up to medium and allow to boil for one minute. Mixture will be beige in color. Remove saucepan from heat and stir in the marshmallow creme and white chocolate chips. Stir until the chips are completely melted and the mixture is smooth, there will be a lot of stirring. Add the vanilla extract and stir to combine.
Crumble 5 Oreos and fold them into the fudge mixture. Spread into the prepared pan and top with 5 more crumbled Oreos and sprinkles. With the back of a spatula, gently press down on the Oreos and sprinkles to sink them slightly into the fudge and allow them to adhere.
Chill the fudge in the refrigerator until set for at least 3 hours. Cut into squares. Fudge remains fresh stored covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
