 I tend to get on flavor kicks every so often.  When I start with a particular food item, I like to use it in everything.  Coconut is one of those things that I have been putting in a lot of things lately.  If you don’t like coconut, this might be the time go surf my recipe page for something else to make.

I am on a mission to make fudge all year long, so I knew coconut fudge had to happen.  It is the perfect summer time fudge.  Coconut makes me think of the tropics, which makes me think of sunshine and the beach, and that makes me long for summer.  Kind of funny how I get all that from the coconut huh?

 Lately every fudge I make has two things in it : Jello instant pudding and some sort of layers.   Today’s fudge of course doesn’t disappoint…it has coconut cream pudding and a fun Oreo crust.  I like texture with my fudge apparently.  Remember this Strawberry Shortcake Fudge?  The crust is totally what set it apart.   So when I started thinking about a coconut fudge, I knew I wanted a crust layer with that too.  I almost went with a coconut cookie crust, because you can never have enough coconut.  But then I saw the Oreo cookies in the store, and all of a sudden I knew that chocolate and coconut was the way to go.

I did try to cut some of the butter in the cookie crust, but it was too crumbly for me.  It didn’t take away from the taste, but I think you need to use all the butter in the recipe.  Unless you are ok with your crust crumbling apart as you try to eat it.  I wasn’t that crazy about losing pieces of that glorious crust, so trust me on this one and add all the butter in the recipe.

This fudge is so easy to make.  You can seriously have it in the pan in under 20 minutes.  I like to use a food processor to crush the cookies.  Stir in the butter and press in a pan and that is ready to go.  Then melt all the ingredients into a creamy deliciousness and pour that right on top of the crust.

My advice…make this up right before you go to bed because it does take a little bit of time to set up.  If you make it the night before, it is ready to cut first thing in the morning.

Go ahead and have a piece for breakfast…it would be the right thing to do.

    Oreos have the magical ability to make great things amazing. This fudge is officially amazing! Before I started reading your blog, I foolishly thought all fudge was chocolate. You have opened my eyes and started an addiction. ; )
