Oreo Fudge Bars

baked-goods-0021

After a disappointing cookie recipe last week, I decided to hunt down a recipe that sounded like a winner. I found this recipe on allrecipes.com and tweaked it a bit based on my own preferences and the reviews of those who have made them.

I changed the name of these bars to better reflect their goodness. These bars are rich, fudgey and full of Oreo goodness! Trust me when I say to cut these bars small as a little goes a long way! Despite being so rich and fudgey, they are not overly sweet in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong, they are definately sweet and will satisfy a craving in no time but not so much so that your teeth hurt just eating one.

If you are not a chocolate lover (I know there are a few of you weirdos out there) do not make these as you will be highly disappointed! However, if you need an easy recipe that is rich and fudgey these are for you. These bars will be perfect for the holidays and I can’t wait t make them with the Winter Red Oreos or the Peppermint Oreos. I may substitue the Andes Peppermint baking chips on top instead of using the mini chocolate chips to enhance the Peppermint flavor for the holidays. The only downside is they will not ship well and should really be kept chilled until a few hours before serving.  When serving for dessert I recommend cutting into squares and drizzling melted white chocolate over the bars, as I have done in the picture below. What a pretty presentation for such a simple recipe. MMMM good.

I rate this recipe a 9

Oreo Fudge Bars
adapted from allrecipes.com
1 16oz. package of Oreo cookies 
1 stick butter, melted
1/4 tsp satl
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk (I used Fat Free)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips (could use another 1/2 cup  semi-sweet chips if you like)
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips 
 

Preheat the oven to 325. baked-goods-015
Line a 9×13 pan with foil and lightly spray with PAM.
Set aside 6 Oreo cookies for the toppings.
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. Add the salt to the crumbs and stir to combine.
Melt butter and gently stir together with the cookie crumb mixutre. 
Press firmly into the bottom of the prepared pan.  
Coarsely chop the remaining cookies into chunks and set aside.
Over a double boiler or in the microwave, melt 3/4 cup semi-sweet and 1/2 cup milk chocoalte chips together with the condensed milk and vanilla.
Stir frequently until smooth.
Spread evenly over the prepared cookie crust.
Sprinkle the mini 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.
Allow to cool on counter for 1 hour. Chill in fridge until completely cold and set before cutting into bars or it will make a big mess.
*These are not too great hot from the oven but are great after chilling and the filling has set!

  1. These are amazing bars. I’ve made them for a bake sale, and when I tried them, I think my eyes just about popped out of my head. So rich, so chocolatey. I’ve also done them with the peppermint Oreos (Kroger brand), and they came out spectacular. I cannot recommend these more strongly. My first bite was truly one of those OMG moments.

  2. Oh, man! Yay!! I have to bring a dessert for Devon’s football team’s end of the year party and this is the one! Most people except for wierdos like me (haha)like oreos and chocolate and there is a boy who can’t eat nuts, so this is perfect.

    Thank you so much for sharing the recipe!

  8. These were a HUGE hit with family & friends! And, they’re SO easy! One question though: In your second picture you’ve got what looks like a white chocolate glaze. What did you use?

    • Dianna,
      I just melted some white chocolate with a little parafin wax and drizzled it over the tops of the bars. SO good and it makes them look like a million bucks!

  16. My daughter always makes some kind of fudge for Christmas. We have not found a recipe that we like yet, so while searching for a new one she came across your page. Well needless to say we just took them out of the oven, they smell GREAT!!!!! Do not want to wait until they’re cooled, but I guess we will. :)

      • Oh my goodness!!!! Just cut the bars, and they are a WINNER!!!!! It’s offical afer searching for 5 years my 8 year old just found her fudge! And it’s a bonus for me because I love it also (I don’t like fudge). Thank You for adding to one of our Christmas traditions!
