I couldn’t decide if I wanted a white chocolate or a straight-up chocolate fudge. Then it occurred to me what about an Oreo fudge? Well I don’t know if you‘ve ever been gripped with indecision, but when I am-I just go for it. I can’t say this always works out well, but in this instance it did. The Oreo gives the fudge a nice textural and flavor break from the richness of the chocolates.
As a chocolate lover, I’ve never been a huge fan of fudge. It’s usually too rich and I can never have more than just a few bites. But as my friend Michelle, and from a one blogger to another, she reminded me I don’t have to like it.
Before you shake your head in confusion-let me say I totally agree. If you are a regular reader than you know this is the case when it comes to peanut butter. Not only do I not like it, but I’m also allergic to it. Luckily, not so much that it prevents me from working with it.
That said, I decided, yes I would make some fudge for a Valentine’s treat, since many people do love fudge and it’s fast and easy to make.
As for the result and as a non-fudge fan—I will say loved it. The Oreos really make it perfect for me.
A few notes:
- If you are not a white chocolate fan, replace that portion with all chocolate and omit the butter. The butter helps to melt and keep white chocolate smooth.
- For straight black and white double decker fudge omit the Oreo.
- Make sure to store the fudge in a tightly sealed container to keep it creamy and moist.
