Cookies and Cream Fudge and a Holiday Giveaway!

 This post is dedicated to all of you who read my silliness day after day.
I especially love the comments and the emails that I get. 
99% of the feedback I get from you is so inspiring…and even that last 1% is appreciated, because I feel that even if you have a negative opinion to share, you still have an opinion about me and that’s something, isn’t it!?
So, to thank you all, I have the perfect Christmas present for you from CSN stores.  I know you guys are all familiar with CSN…you can get everything from a Panini Press to leather messenger bags.  Without a doubt you can find the perfect gift for either yourself or anyone else in your life!
One thing I love getting from y’all is requests…
I got an email from a reader named Callye a few weeks ago asking if I could post a recipe for a certain kind of fudge.
In the words of Barney Stinson…”Challenge accepted”
 Here’s my version of Cookies and Cream fudge:
3/4 cup butter
2/3 cup sweetened Condensed milk
1 cup Marshmallow Fluff
1 t. vanilla
2 cups white chocolate chips
2 cups crushed Oreos (about 30)
1 cup coarsely crushed Oreos (about 15)
Line 9×9 square pan with foil and spray with cooking spray evenly
In a medium saucepan combine butter and sweetened condensed milk.
Heat over medium heat until mixture is boiling, stirring constantly.
Continue to stir while boiling for 2 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in Fluff, white chocolate chips, vanilla and 2 cups crushed Oreos.
Spread into prepared pan.
Now sprinkle 1 cup coarsely crushed Oreos on top and press gently into fudge.
Chill for 1 hour and cut into squares!
Now,  to the free stuff.
How about $180 to spend on whatever you want over at CSN Stores?
$180 !
All you have to do is leave a comment.
That’s it.
You could tell me what you would buy.
You could tell me what you love most about me πŸ˜‰
You could tell me what you ate for lunch yesterday.
Just leave a comment and make sure you leave me a way to contact you…we are all busy this time of year so please don’t take me away from wrapping my children’s presents to search for your email address.
While I would LOVE it if you tweeted, facebooked, liked or followed me I’m not gonna make you.
But you could.  It’s the holiday season after all πŸ™‚
So leave a comment and cross your fingers!
Good luck!

    Hi! I really enjoy reading your blog. Last night I bought some Ritz Flipz crackers and I dipped them in white chocolate and let them cool. Then I dipped them in milk chocolate and sprinkled some toffee bits on top. To finish them off I drizzled some white chocolate on top. They are super cute treats and delicious too! Thanks for your baking inspiration.

  2. Lesley

    I love your blog! I check it regularly and your sense of humor cracks me up. Thanks for making approachable recipes. Right now if I were to buy a gift for myself it would be a cookie carrier. I brought cookies to a cookie exchange at work today in a cake carrier and it doesn't quite fit the bill.

  3. Steph

    Thank you so much for sharing all your wonderful recipes! You've inspired me to bake more, and my family appreciates that πŸ™‚


  4. jessica.mcmanus7

    1. You have great recipes! and your photography is so pretty too!
    2. In all the holiday hullabaloo I managed to put my cell phone through the wash on Monday. The money would pay my insurance to get a new one!

  5. CantStopBaking

    First of all, I love your style and writing on your blog. Its really what inspired me to start my blog- I was like " I want to be just like her!" Anyways, If I had $180 dollars, I would probably by myself a new rug for our living room, or linen for my boys room- they are still stuck with the flowered guest linen!

  6. SnoWhite

    This fudge looks delicious!

    I'd be game for some new kitchen gadgets, or perhaps I'd put the money towards a front entry way bench!

  7. Kacey

    These look delicious and I would probably eat them all myself, in one sitting…

    I'm not sure what I would buy at CSN Stores, but I do love that site!

  8. DnaBoo

    I <3 ur blog & even follow (like) you on FB. πŸ™‚ Actually…you're one of the first blogs I started following!

    Was thinking this morning I should send my mom something sugary and distracting (her father isn't expected to last the day=() … This could do nicely

  10. TriminiCricket

    OMG all the things I could buy with $180! I would start with some super nice cookie sheets to replace my old cheap ones!

    Oh my… that fudge looks wonderful!!


    ps – if I win just comment on my blog it comes in my e-mail, I don't want to post my e-mail so everyone can see it. I'm kinda paranoid that way

  13. Ingrid

    Holy smokes! $180 dollars?! How'd you manage that? You've got pull. πŸ™‚

    That fudge looks wonderful. I'm printing it out and adding it to the list of treats to make to send to school…everyone loves oreos.

    Hope you're enjoying the holiday! πŸ™‚

  14. Stace

    I LOVE YOUR BLOG, i have gotten so many great recipe ideas from it and you make me look like a baking extraordinaire! I would use the money to buy my mom and grandmother new bake wear. Both are in desperate need of new bake wear but worry about what everyone else needs and not themselves. So if I was to win I would use the prize on them!

    Happy Holidays

  15. Debbie

    I love your funny stories. My favorite is the one where your son licked the pole on the subway and the homeless guy started gagging. I laughed so hard I cried!

  16. Christy

    Love the blog and I think that you are hilarious! I laugh out loud all the time while I am reading it! Would but lots and lots of baking things!

  17. Alisha

    Whoa! That's a big giveaway! May I have it, please? :o)

  22. peanutbutterandginger

    Mmm.. I love fudge!

    I suppose I couldn't put the gift certificate toward a new car.. πŸ˜‰ I kid!

    I'd get a nice marble rolling pin and some cooling racks! Or perhaps a nice dutch oven!

  23. koprime

    just recently started following you. i like your writing style. yesterday for lunch i had leftover corn pudding from Thanksgiving (it had been frozen).

  24. Colleen

    I should probably start wrapping presents. My kids' gifts are all "hidden" under the bed. They're young enough I can still do that. I tried getting my husband to use that same hiding spot for my gifts, but for some reason he refused!

  25. Diane {Created by Diane}

    I love your blog, you are so creative and inspiring!Your sweet treats are amazing! Love how you write, I feel like you are talking to ME :)so when I read it, it's like I'm with a friend. You are special that way!

  26. Erin

    Your fudge looks so amazing! I love oreos and fudge is my weakness! Now this is on my list to make this weekend. Thank you! And $180 to CSN? Holy smokes! Yes, please! =o) crazybulldogs at comcast dot not

  28. RobinJ

    Your blog cracks me up! I eagerly await your next post! The recipes are to die for! Thanks for your blog and have a fabulous Christmas!

  29. Loren Ebert

    Wow…that fudge looks amazing!!

    Since we are moving into our new home on Monday, $180 from CSN stores would be an awesome Christmas present! The new house has a secondary kitchen in the basement which I will need to fill with stuff! New mixing bowls, spatulas and a new food processor would be on my wishlist!! Thanks!

  30. Joanna

    My favorite brownie recipe is cookies and cream, so this fudge is perfect for me πŸ™‚ Drooling over here!
    And thanks for hosting such a generous giveaway! I could do some serious damage with that much loot.

  31. Becky

    Wow that fudge looks amazing. My 6yo would love it since it has Oreos.

    I was just trying to remember the name of that website this morning and here you posted about CSN. I'm heading there to browse around now.

  32. Joanne

    This fudge is going to be a serious reason why I am not going to lose five pounds by Christmas (okay. There are many reasons. This is but one. Oy.) Thanks for this and for the giveaway! You rock.

  33. Erika Beth, the Messy Chef

    Awesome! I am totally making this fudge tomorrow night. (I need to use my leftover oreos.) I love that you take pictures of your food with vibrant backgrounds. It always looks so cheery.

  34. HaB

    That fudge LOOKS amazing!!! I just might have to add it to my holiday baking list. Can you imagine how divine it would taste with Peanut Butter Oreos?? NOM NOOM!!!

    CSN has something for everyone! I'd probably splurge and get my daughter the Magic Garden Book shelf – as we are hoping to re-do her room and it would fit perfectly with the ideas that I have in my mind.

  35. Sue

    You are so down to earth and always make me laugh!:) And of course, all of your goodies are "the icing on the cake"! I have a "to bake" list a mile long with so many of your treats on it! Merry Christmas to you and all the boys!

  36. Jeff & Andrea

    Cookies and Cups makes me smile every time I read it….sometimes it's the pictures of delicious treats and sometimes it's the stories. Thank you for sharing both!


  37. CraftyLikeLindy

    I am totally going to make this fudge! I even have everythng except the oreos. Thanks for sharing. Fingers crossed on winning too!

  42. Dani

    You REALLY wanna know what I had for lunch yesterday? REALLY TRULY?

    Spaghetti leftovers. From Saturday. Hubby though it would be brilliant to make a huge Pyrex bowl's worth of spaghetti…and I'm the only one who's been eating it. Sigh.
    Dani –

  43. Meghan

    I love your blog so much! You always post the most delicious looking things and I always try to make most of them. My husband isn't very supportive. He thinks we are all going to get fat, but we cant if I make it, have a piece, and give the rest away. We will just have fat neighbors and that will make us look even skinnier. Ha.

  44. Danielle

    This recipe looks so interesting…my husband is obsessed with cookies and cream ice cream so I bet he will be in heaven with this fudge. Thank you, your recipes are always fun and truly make you want to start baking!

  45. MrsMac4

    I would use this to help our neighbors by Christmas gifts this year, they recently found out their 8 year old son has cancer.

    I LOVE your site and it always brings a smile to my face!

    Merry Christmas and God Bless!

  46. foodlova

    I was sad that Holland did not have the ingredients I needed for that mix you made. Those Santa hats rock my world!! Now I'm back in Canada for Christmas and I am definitely trying it out. THanks!

  47. Felice

    The fudge looks fantastic. Today is my birthday and I am so happy that I get to do whatever I want, so I spent a good part of the day reading my favorite blogs, this one included.

  48. kayleigh83

    Love your blog!! I check it every day πŸ™‚ I think if I won $180 from CSN Stores I'd spend hours putting things in and out of my shopping basket, fussing around until I found the perfect things! And loving every minute of it!! πŸ˜€

    kkadulski at hotmail dot com

  49. Anne

    Im glad I found your blog. You have really inspired me and because of that…IF I win, I would use that gift card buying some much need baking supplies.


  50. Monica H

    Holy moly, that's a lot of money to spend at CSN! I could go holiday shopping- woo hoo!

    You are too kind to make fudge for a reader. It looks so good!

    PS. I don't like those 1% meany people. They're not nice!

  51. Amy K

    I always enjoy reading your blog, and have tried many of your awesome shared recipes (successfully). πŸ™‚
    I actually made this fudge last Christmas, and it was one of the hottest treats at each gathering!
    CSN is also an awesome site – I have been dreaming about one of their hall trees for quite some time now. Thanks for the chance to win.

  55. Mandy

    Mmmm…wish I had the ingredients to make that fudge right this second. It looks delicious. As for the giveaway, I would love to buy some toys for my niece.

  56. Monet

    So many comments, sweet friend! I am glad to be able to add one to the list. Your fudge looks just heavenly. How can you go wrong with marshmallow fluff and oreos? I love visiting you for your thoughtful words and inspiring recipes. Thank you for sharing with me, week after week. Sending love and good thoughts your way!

  57. Lisa Marie

    I think I could spend that much on fudge. My son loves anything cookies and cream, going to have to whip up a batch of this for him πŸ™‚

  58. Alison

    I love your blog and forward a lot of your recipes and ideas to my niece who is enjoying culinary classes in high school. Her favorite part of the class is the baking and cake decorating!

    I loved your guest post on the cream cheese cookies – I made them for my girlfriends and they were in love! So easy and so pretty. Thank you for sharing πŸ˜‰

  60. thewhimsicalcupcake

    i LOVE your blog. LOVE LOVE LOVE. and then i come here today and not only do i get a recipe for something that i have an AWESOME idea for (using candy cane oreos, that's my idea, no stealing πŸ˜‰ ) but i get to enter for a chance to win a giveaway. how sweet. both literally and figuratively.

    jpinnick86 AT gmail DOT com

  61. Lynn

    Lots of great ideas on your blog, must say I LOVE the santa hat bugles for the party mix, must get me some as soon as I make it out of this ice/snow!!

    and of course I would use that gift card to buy stuff for the kitchen!!!

  62. Jessica

    LOVE your blog and all the fabulous recipes/ideas I get from you! Wishing you a fabulous holiday season! jreese4peace{at}

  63. Christine

    I am currently trying to stay out of my Santa Hats that I made last night: the first recipe of yours I've tried! They truly are the tri-fecta of baked goods for me: easy, I can make it ahead, and my goodness they taste wonderful!

    If I won this giveaway I'd put it towards a set of Calphalon cookware. Wow…that would rock!!

  64. Rach

    I like you, love your blog and gain weight just looking at your creations! Your sense of humor CRACKS me up! {I'd read your stuff even if you didn't give stuff away!} πŸ™‚

  65. Catherine Lawrence

    You listed vanilla as an ingredient but not when to incorporate it into the recipe. Can you clarify that? I'm dying to make this fudge this weekend! Thanks!

  66. Patti

    This fudge looks amazing! I think I have everything to make it in my pantry too! If I can convince my 3 and 7 year olds to give up their precious Oreos I'm so going to make this tonight! Yum!
    Oh…and I would buy myself some new kitchen gadgets. I really need some silicone whisks (good ones, unlike the ones I have from the dollar store!) and a nice set of metal measuring cups and spoons! Yep, doesn't take much to make me happy!
    hmm…what I like about you? you have a love of cupcakes and cookies. That says a lot about a person in my book. πŸ˜‰ LOL


  67. Raina

    Oh man that is a great giveaway! I have a giant list of stuff I could buy with that:)

    I love your blog. You are so funny. You always put a smile on my face, and your goodies are the best around. This fudge looks incredible. I will definitely make this for Christmas. My kids and hubby will love it.

  68. Tracy Lea

    I made the Christmas hats out of Bugles, what a great festive treat for Christmas, love 'em!! Thanks for your great ideas πŸ™‚

  69. shelly8806

    I made this fudge last night to take to a family Christmas today and everyone loved it! It was gone so fast! Thanks for the great recipe!

  70. Bridgett

    I love reading your posts as I can always relate to something funny going on in your life with your kids. This fudge would be the best Xmas present should you ever want to wrap and ship a huge box to me…for quality testing of course, lol. Wishing you and yours the best this holiday.

  71. foodlova

    HI! I just made this recipe and while the condensed milk and butter were boiling it started to separate. Is that normal? If not, what did I do wrong? I brought it up to a boil on low heat and then boiled while stirring for 2 minutes. I live in Europe, so the butter contains more milk fat than back home. Maybe that was the reason. Do you think I should stop before it separates next time? Ok, I hope you can email me back and help me out. Hopefully it still turns out because I really am looking forward to eating it!! it looks so good πŸ™‚
    Thanks, Kerry

  72. Sheila

    Just saw your free giveway to csn, I think the oreo fudge is a great idea, I also want to try making my oreo truffles this year. I wonder if anyone has tried putting marachino cherries inside them?
