Candy Corn Oreo Fudge

There are various reasons I love the Mr.  In fact, too numerous for the blogosphere to hold.  One of the reasons is because on one of his geek blogs he reads he said "hey hon, did you know Monday Target is coming out with candy corn Oreos?  I think you need to make something yummy for the blog with those."

Why yes Mr, I think you're right.  So he went to the Target close to his work and no dice.  I called the one closest to us..."we think it'll be Wednesday."  I called the one in the next town over and they verified they had four.  FOUR packages people!  That means they were practically sold out on day one.  I risked it and drove 20 minutes over and snatched the last three packages that were left.  Don't act like I don't do anything for you!  *grin*


Aren't they cute?  They're super easy too.  Let's take a peek at the star first.

Here's what the package looks like if you plan to scramble to Target.  They're limited edition so I don't know how long that means exactly.


Ooh look at that!


Let's bust 'em open.  Look how sweet they are with their split personality!


And how do they taste on their own?  OH MY GOODNESS!!  If you're an Oreo freak and you like candy corn or buttercream frosting like I do...these babies should be purchased with caution.  They are in-sane.

Let's get to the recipe!  Here's what you'll need...


Candy Corn Oreo Fudge

(Makes 30 pieces)
12 oz white chocolate chips
1 can fat free condensed milk
10 Candy Corn Oreos
Orange food coloring



Hi guys!  I'm gonna make you into some deliciousness!


Cut up all of your Oreos ahead of time.  I cut mine in half and then each half into three's so they kind of looked like candy corn.


In a microwave safe dish, add your white chips and your can of fat free condensed milk.


Microwave for 2 minutes and stir then add your food coloring.  (I used 6 drops of yellow and 2 drops of red)  Give it a stir and microwave it for two more 30 second intervals giving it a stir in between.  It'll bubble up so watch it closely.


Quickly put half of your Oreo pieces on the bottom of an 8x8 wax paper lined pan.  (Or do it while the concoction is in the microwave.


Add your fudge over the Oreo pieces and smooth out.


Press the remaining Oreo pieces in the top, cover with foil and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until set.  Then cut into pieces.


Sit back and enjoy this candy corn creation in moderation or swipe one piece and get it the heck outta the house like I did!  Remember...this is all the Mr's fault!  :-)

    1. They are sinful but thankfully one piece won't blow your day. As with anything, carefully planning let's us enjoy a little sin now and then. ;)

    1. LOL...devil cookies indeed. There are 2 left from the initial bag and I've worked them into our calories for today and then I'm going to pretend the other 2 don't exist. One of them will be for the Mr's party next month.

      Thanks, I thought that was a cute little touch too if I do say so mah-self!

  3. Oh. My. Gosh. I'm not sure if I'm disappointed or relieved that the nearest Target is an hour away. I don't think these cookies would last long enough to make a recipe with them but I'd sure be willing to try.

  4. I think it is a very, very good thing that Target is not close by and I have absolutely no time this week to make a trip there. With luck, those evil cookies will be sold out long before I can make my way to Target . . . but then I'd miss out on that amazing looking fudge, too.

  5. OH MY! I have to Stay out of Target! Not going there, Not going there, not going there. (well at least that in my mantra) I am allowed one bag of candy corn a year and I am saving that for the cooler weather. These would be a bad thing in my house. DH does not like oreo's so I would just HAVE to eat them all.

    Fudge looks really good, but for now just think I need to pass.

  6. ooohh i love what u did with them..glad I am not getting tempted..but sounds like an amazing idea to still make the fudge with the original oreo cookies..

  7. My co-workers are enjoying the fudge. I am jealous that I can't eat anymore. I am not a white chocolate fan but this fudge somehow takes on that smooth butter cream flavor of the candy corn oreos and it really is a very special taste combination. I will be sorry to see those go away but I sure hope they bring them back next year!

  8. So glad these haven't jumped out at me. Your fudge looks AH MAY ZING! I just know if I find a pack of cookies lying around this is what I'll be doing with them. Hope a pack of cookies does not suddenly leap into my cart next trip. Youngest LOVES candy corn (takes after her mom) so I've got a good reason to try this, darn it. :)

  9. Ummmm...candy corn AND fudge AND Oreos all together in one thing. SINFUL!!!!

  10. Very clever! Fortunately I am completely able to forego both the cookies and the fudge...they do look good, but none of it triggers my gotta-have-it switch. I'm with the Mr. on white chocolate, which I insist is NOT chocolate, so there. LOL

  11. I gained 5 pounds just looking at this.

  12. This is absolutely redonkulous *face plant* Have you had the candy corn m & m's yet?!? They're amazing too!

  13. You know, I think I'd save myself some time and just dip them whole in melted white chocolate. I'm such a lazy-bones. LOL

  14. This looks INSANE! Now I'm going to need to go find those Oreos!

    ReplyDelete
  15. You're totally awesome! I need to find something to make with my Oreos before I eat the whole bag. YUM!
