I have jumped back on the fudge making train.  For a little while I was trying to make a new flavor every month, but I slacked off through the summer.  But recently I got the fudge urge again, and now I can’t stop thinking of fun flavors to make.

I think fudge all year round sounds so much better than fudge at the holidays.  Every single time we visit any fairs or markets, I have to check out the fudge booths.  You never know what fun flavors you might find.

Have you seen the instant pumpkin spice Jell-O pudding?  I found some at Walmart this year, and I couldn’t wait to make something fun with it.  Of course right now with fudge on my brain, I knew this would be the perfect flavor to jazz up a cookies and cream fudge.  These Pumpkin Oreo Cheesecakes are one of my favorite recipes, so I knew the flavor would work in fudge too.

The pumpkin pudding just adds a small pumpkin spice flavor that is so enjoyable, and the cookies get soft from being swirled into the fudge.  I had a hard time only eating one piece.  This fudge does take some time to set up, so give yourself some time when you make it.  Do the laundry, vacuum, or catch up on your favorite tv drama.  Whatever you do, make sure you wait to cut into this.

I like to make fudge the night before I need it.  Melt down everything and pour into a parchment paper lined pan.  Do not use waxed paper…hot fudge on wax paper is not easy to get off.  I learned this the hard way one time :-)

Keep the fudge in the refrigerator all night.  The next day take it out of the pan and cut into small bite sized pieces.  Then let the fudge come to room temperature.  You can eat it cold…it does still taste amazing.  But the fudge will finish setting up and drying out a bit, if you give it some time.

Be patient in your fudge making!  This is seriously the hardest thing in the world for me.  I can’t tell you how many times I have cut into it too early, and it was still soft enough to eat with a spoon.  It is good that way, but not really desirable.  It makes it a little harder to give as a gift.

But if you wait long enough, you will have gorgeous cookies and cream fudge squares that will look so pretty on your dessert table.

My advice, stop at Walmart and find the pumpkin pudding ASAP.  It is a seasonal item, and I don’t know how long it will stick around.  I would recommend buying more than one box.

Pumpkin Cookies and Cream Fudge

Cookies and cream fudge gets a fun fall twist by adding pumpkin pudding to the hot fudge.

Ingredients

3 cups white chocolate chips
2 Tablespoons butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 oz.)
1 box instant pumpkin spice pudding
1 cup marshmallow cream
2 cups Oreo cookie chunks

Instructions

  1. In a large saucepan stir together the white chips, butter, and sweetened condensed milk. Heat over low-medium heat until melted and creamy. Add the box of instant pudding and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the marshmallow cream and stir until melted and creamy.
  2. Gently stir in the cookie chunks, being careful to not crush them. Pour the hot fudge into an 8x8 pan that has been lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate until set, about 3-4 hours.
  3. Lift the paper and fudge out of the pan and cut into 36 squares using a hot knife. Let the fudge come to room temperature before putting away. Store in a loosely sealed container on the counter.

Notes

If you can't find the pumpkin pudding, try adding 1-2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice to a white chocolate pudding mix.
