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 bit goes a very long way.  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.

How to Make Cookies and Cream Homemade Fudge

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

Do I need a candy thermometer for this recipe? 

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.

      I have a sister who is the same way! She much prefers white to “regular” chocolate.

    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?

    • Camille

      I’d say maybe 30 minutes? The most time consuming part is getting the fudge up to the correct temperature so it hits that soft ball stage. Other than that, it’s pretty quick!

    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.
