I invented this confection for a bake sale at our children's school. Boy, was it a hit! The crunchy chunks of sandwich cookie soften a bit as the mixture mellows. It's so sweet that one panful serves a crowd. —Laura Lane, Richmond, Virginia

"Hi I have made this several times, and it's always a hit. I don't even like oreo cookies and I love this fudge. To those of you who find it soupy, are you using sweetened condensed milk NOT evaporated milk?"

"I have used this recipe many times for different occasions. I've changed it up a little, though. Once the chips are almost melted, I stir in a rounded 1/4 c. of powdered sugar for a little more body. I also use parchment paper instead of foil. I like to watch for the seasonal Oreo's - make them for Easter, Birthdays, etc... - whenever a little extra sweet treat is nice. I also double the batch and make it in a 11x17 jelly roll pan during the holidays. Then I have enough for an added touch on cookie plates, and work treats. Wonderful recipe."

"Forgive me...but isn't there supposed to be some sort of confectioners sugar in this recipe? That may be why the reviewers are complaining that it's not holding it's shape? Typically most fudge recipes (if not all)...have powdered sugar as a main ingredient, it's what binds it together...Laura, PLEASE let us know"

"I haven't made this recipe yet but wonder if 16 cookies is adequate for the recipe? If you want to switch it up for autumn, you can add the Reeses peanut butter candies for a different taste!"

"I had the same problem as the other lady who said that she had to eat it with a spoon because it didn't set up. I left it in the fridge overnight and soup! I was so disappointed. I live at 4000 elevation and it won't set up? Any suggestions Taste of Home?"

"I made this fudge this morning and it is soooo good. I crushed the oreos instead of chunks, but that didn't work out very well. They stayed with the fudge pretty well on the bottom but brushed right off the top for a real mess even after trying to push them into the fudge. Next time I will still crush them, but will pour some fudge, then put crushed oreos on, then pour the rest of the fudge. This should take care of the mess and wasted cookie crumbs. Will definitely make again, very good, and very easy."

"This is so good! My husband and I both loved it. Mine didn't set right, so rather than eating squares, we ate spoonfuls, but it was still delicious!"

"I used this recipe from time to time & I LOVE IT! I have modified the recipe to suit my tastes, using 1 package of Make & Mold Candy Wafers in place of the white chips. they worked out very well! I used a package of peanut butter flavored wafers & I also added 2 large peanut-butter cups for the top layer! I'd made this recipe for my volunteer job at the local hospital & everyone really enjoyed this fudge! I also prepared it last evening for my nephew, Benjamin's high school graduation 6/11/12! Dawn E.
