Oreo Fudge Bars
 
Cook time
Total time
 
Ingredients
  • 1 18 oz. package of Oreo cookies
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, melted
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup milk chocolate chips (could use another ½ cup semi-sweet chips if you like)
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips (I just used another ½ cup of regular sized milk chocolate chips)
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips, melted (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a 9×13 pan with foil and lightly spray with Pam. Set aside 6 Oreo cookies for the topping.
  2. In a small food processor grind the rest of the cookies. If you don’t have a food processor, just pound with a rolling pin until the cookies are fine crumbs (I do not have a food processor, so I pounded the cookies as best as I could, but the crumbs were far from "fine"...but I continued on with the recipe anyway and I didn't run into any problems). Add the salt to the crumbs and stir to combine.
  3. Melt the butter and gently stir together with the cookie crumb mixture. Press firmly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Coarsely chop the remaining cookies into chunks and set aside.
  4. Over a double boiler or in the microwave (careful not to burn the chocolate - I usually melt the chips halfway and then stir them until they've melted completely), melt ¾ cup semi-sweet and ½ cup milk chocoalte chips together with the condensed milk and vanilla.
  5. Stir the chocolate mixture frequently until smooth and spread evenly over the prepared cookie crust.
  6. Sprinkle the mini (or regular) chocolate chips and the Oreo cookies chunks over the top of the filling. Press down gently into the chocolate topping. Bake for 20-22 minutes oven.
  7. Allow to cool on counter for 1 hour, then drizzle the melted white chocolate chips over the bars (I melted the chips and put the chocolate in a plastic baggie with the tip cut off).
  8. Chill in fridge until completely cold and set before cutting into bars or it will make a big mess (seriously). These are best when firm, as the more they melt the more gooey they get and the harder they are to eat. Otherwise, though, they're absolutely delicious! Enjoy!
