The best Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe with Oreos!
I have been making this delicious peanut butter fudge with Oreo chunks for years. I call it the “Parent Trap” fudge. If you know, you know! Even though oreo and peanut butter fudge can be enjoyed all year round, I love making it at Christmas! It’s perfect for a dessert table or super cute wrapped in a plastic bag with a festive ribbon. This fudge is the kind that melts in your mouth, and it’s hard to stop at one piece!
I promise after December, I am going to be bringing all the fresh and healthy recipes back to the blog! I just LOVE baking all the yummy treats at Christmas time!
You can also make this recipe without the Oreos, especially if you already have all the ingredients in your pantry!
Peanut butter and Oreos go together. When I was a kid, I was influenced by the Parent Trap, and my best friend and I always snacked on Oreos with peanut butter after school. This fudge takes that combo to the next level!
HOW TO MAKE THE BEST PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE
The key to making this recipe successful is having all the ingredients measured and ready to go!
In a saucepan, add your butter, sugar, and milk.
Crumble Oreos in a bowl.
Grease two bowls and add in the marshmallow cream and peanut butter
Add flour to another bowl.
You must add the ingredients fast, so it’s better to have it all next to the saucepan.
You can watch my video to see how I do it!
This fudge recipe is so easy to make! Anyone can do it.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and 8-10 crushed Oreos.
Bring sugar, milk, and butter to a boil. Set a five-minute timer.
THE EASIEST PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE
Once the timer goes off, remove from the heat, and mix in the peanut butter and marshmallow cream.
Once the peanut butter has fully melted, mix in the flour and crushed Oreos.
Mix quickly, immediately transfer to the baking dish, and spread out using a greased metal spoon.
Sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt.
Let the fudge cool for about an hour at room temperature before slicing.
The Best Peanut Butter Fudge With Oreos!
- 4 Cups Granulated Cane Sugar
- 1 Cup Whole Milk
- 1 Stick Unsalted Butter
- 7 Ounces Marshmallow Creme
- 1 1/2 Cups Peanut Butter
- 2/3 Cup All-Purpose Flour
- 1 Family Size Double-Stuffed Oros
- 1 Pinch Sea Salt
- Line a 9 x 13-inch dish with parchment paper. NOTE: If you do not have parchment paper, spray with cooking or butter.
- Crumble 8 to 10 Oreos at the bottom of the baking dish on top of the parchment paper. Set aside. Crush the rest of the Oreos and place them in a bowl.
- Add the sugar, butter, and milk into a saucepan and keep stirring until you bring the mixture to a complete boil. NOTE: It will look like the mixture is boiling along the sides, but it will not be boiling until the bubbles reach the center. Once the mixture is completely boiling, set a timer for 5 minutes, and continue to stir. When the timer goes off, turn off the heat.
- Quickly add in the peanut butter and marshmallow cream. NOTE: The peanut butter will melt faster than the fluff, so do not worry if there are still large pieces of marshmallows in the fudge. Quickly mix in the crushed Oreos (leaving a few to crumble over the top) and the flour. The fudge will start to thicken immediately. As soon as the flour is incorporated, instantly transfer it to the baking dish, and top it with Oreo crumbles and a pinch of sea salt. NOTE: Use a greased metal spoon for spreading. NOTE: It helps to keep all the ingredients pre-measured and next to the boiling pot to make sure you have enough time to add in all the ingredients.
- Allow the fudge to cool for one hour at room temperature.
This fudge recipe has been in my family for many years, and it’s fun to experiment by adding in Oreos, nuts, and even sprinkles. My go-to peanut butter for this fudge is the Creamy Skippy. I think it tastes the best, and I always use the double-stuffed Oreos.
In the top right corner, I made the peanut butter fudge without the Oreos! The only thing you won’t add is sea salt.
I have been loving seeing all of your recipe photos on Instagram! Thank you all for tagging me and coming back to rate them! 🙂
I hope you all have the BEST HOLIDAY!!!!
