Cookies and cream fudge is a delicious addition to your holiday baking! This cookies and cream fudge recipe has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and Land O’ Lakes Butter.

Cookies and Cream Fudge from #recipe

If you are looking for a fabulous teacher gift for the holidays, look no further.  My husband received some of this fudge last year from a student and I about died.  Teachers love edible gifts and so do their families! We give up a lot of evenings and weekends with our husband/daddy so he can be at school events so it’s nice when he brings home an edible gift we can all indulge in.  Only, I didn’t share much of this.

This fudge tastes like the middle of a chocolate sandwich cookie.  Seriously. It’s pure heaven! It is so rich that just a little bite goes a very long way so don’t let that 3 cups of sugar and 1 1/2 sticks of butter scare you away.  Plus, you’re giving it away, right?  I’m not afraid of butter.  I use it every single day in my cooking, but I do seem to go through even more in December thanks to all my holiday baking.   I stocked up on Land O’ Lakes unsalted butter at Walmart.  December is a good time to stock up on butter because it’s often on sale and butter freezes really well.   I prefer salted butter but when I bake, I use unsalted so I can control the salt.


This fudge recipe is pretty straightforward.  The only tricky part is not chopping your cookies too small so they disappear in to the fudge.  I just cut my cookies in half and let them crumble on their own from there.


Making fudge is technically candy making and while a candy thermometer is handy, it’s not absolutely necessary.  I did use a thermometer and a timer.  My fudge took about 5 minutes to hit the soft ball stage but if you don’t have a candy thermometer, just boil for 4 minutes and call it good.


If you aren’t a fan of cookies and cream, just substitute chocolate chips for the white chocolate and leave out the cookies for chocolate fudge.  Also make sure to check out the Land O’ Lakes Holiday Gift Giving Brochure for more gift ideas from the kitchen! Once you’ve created a special holiday treat, make sure to enter the Land O’ Lakes contest for a chance to win a $250 gift card to Walmart!


Cookies & Cream Fudge
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 

  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 1 5 ounce can evaporated milk (the small can!)
  • ¾ cup (1½ sticks) Land O’ Lakes Unsalted Butter
  • 1 7 oz jar marshmallow fluff
  • 12 ounces of white chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • A pinch of salt
  • 22 chocolate sandwich cookies, very roughly chopped
  1. Prepare a 9 x 9 pan by lining with foil. Coat the foil thoroughly with softened butter.
  2. Combine sugar, evaporated milk and butter in a large pot. Heat over medium high heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture reaches a boil.
  3. Boil, while still stirring, for 4 minutes or until a candy thermometer reaches the soft ball stage.
  4. Remove pot from heat. Stir in marshmallow fluff, white chocolate chips, vanilla and salt. Stir until everything is melted and the mixture is smooth.
  5. Gently stir in about two-thirds of the cookies.
  6. Pour the fudge batter in to the prepared pan. Gently place the remaining cooking pieces on to the top of the fudge. Press them down lightly in to the fudge.
  7. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

  2. I am going to try this this weekend! The only thing I don’t have is marshmallow fluff, so this fits perfectly with stuff I bake with already! How long is the active prep-and-cook time, would you say?

  3. HI, I just made this cookies and cream fudge and it is all crumbly. Now I can’t give them as presents. What did I do wrong? HELP

    • Hi Deb! I’m so sorry to hear that! I know how utterly frustrating it is to make a recipe and have it fail! Did you put it in the fridge or let it sit out on the counter? I found that letting it sit out will make it softer. The batches I put in the fridge are a little more crumbly, but not enough that it fell apart completely. You may try letting the batch you made sit out. Another idea would be to pour it out in small containers and let it set in those and then just give those out.

  4. Not only does this recipe sound delicious, it looks so tempting with all the lovely crumbled cookies! This would make great Christmas or hostess gifts too. Thank you for sharing it with us at The Hearth and Soul hop.
