TIPS FOR MAKING OREO FUDGE
- Make sure to line your pan with aluminum foil and spray that with a non-stick spray. That way the fudge won’t stick to the pan.
- Add white chocolate, sweetened condensed milk, and a little salt to your saucepan. Be sure to keep the burner on low heat and stir while the chocolate melts.
- To be extra certain you don’t under-cook or over-cook the chocolate mixture use a candy thermometer to test the temperature. The ideal temperature is between 235 and 237 degrees F.
- Turn off the heat before you add in the vanilla extract, and continue to mix the ingredients.
- As it starts to cool add in half of the Oreos.
- Pour the mixture into your prepared dish, sprinkle with the remaining Oreos, then let it set in the refrigerator before enjoying
