Cookies and Cream Fudge - with pics - 2nd version
« on: December 06, 2010, 08:51:06 am »
2ND POSTING AFTER FIRST BATCH DID NOT SET PROPERLY - the following recipe is excellent !!!!!!! I also reduced the glucose to 1 tabsp compared to the first version which used 2 tabsp.  Enjoy

Cookies and Cream Fudge - adapted from www.bestrecipes.com.au -  recipe no. 10 981

Ingredients

1 can condensed milk
1 cup castor sugar
125g butter
1 tabsp (25g) liquid glucose (available form supermarkets)
200g white chocolate - chopped
1/2 x 150g pkt Oreo biscuits - chopped = 7 biscuits it is easier to simply break biscuits to save amount of crumbs when chopped

Method

1. Add to TM bowl milk, butter, sugar and glucose - cook 100⁰ C - 8 mins -  speed 3
2. Scrape the sides and bottom of bowl with flexible plate scraper
3. Cook further 20mins varoma temp - speed 3 - add an extra 2 mins of cooking time if a more caramelised result is desired
4. Add chopped chocolate and Oreo biscuits - stir through 10 secs -  :-: - speed 3-4 - until choc is melted
3. Pour into lined square pan or slice tray - refrigerate until set.  Slice into small squares - this time it cut perfectly.

These pics look as though the cut fudge is from a different batch - but be assured this is not the case, photography is not my long suit!!!

Slice into squares using hot knife.

andie had a hint the other day with cutting slices etc, and that was tying some dental floss around 2 corks and using this to get a good clean cut.

Robyn,

That sounds fantastic! I will put that on my "when I have done some exercise I can try that" list (getting longer by the minute....).

Love the look & sound of this fudge, but oh boy will need to brush the teeth afterwards - that's a lot of potential tooth decay there, besides the extra tire around the middle. Did, I say I like the look & sound of this fudge?? Yummo!

This looks really amazing. Well done for the conversion.

Made another batch this morning and this was even tastier as I cooked  for 2 mins longer which allowed the sugar to caramelise further, tasted like russian caramel but creamier -(the TMX does a far better job than I - standing for 20/25 mins stirring while the caramelisation was happening).  ;D  ;D

That was a very cruel posting - some of us are already piling on the weight without recipes like that  ;D ;D

Made this tonight - so easy and soooooo yummy! 

I cooked it the extra 2 minutes that johnro suggested, and it went all gorgeous and caramel-ish.

Dangerous though ...... I burnt my finger and my tongue doing a little taste test of the hot mixture  :P

I also recommend cleaning out the TMX asap - or at least soaking it immediately.  I left it for a few minutes while I cleaned up other things, and the set fudge was much harder to get off that it would have been if I had done it straight away.

5 star recipe!!  Thanks for posting  :-* :-*

Johnro, have you altered the recipe to accommodate the extra 2 minutes or do we add it to the 20 minutes?

JD as yet I have not added the extra time but will amend that right now. Cheers  :) Thanks for cleaning tips KJH, it comes as second nature to immediately put water into any equipment after making any type of confectionery (a result of being the convenor of the sweets making for school fetes etc) thanks again  :)  :)
