Cookies & Cream Fudge ~ #SundaySupper

This week the #SundaySupper team is celebrating recipes inspired by our favorite holiday movies and music.

During the entire month of December, there’s an endless loop of holiday films playing on the tube and Jingle Bells blasting from my iPod. I can happily watch the same holiday films over and over without complaint.

I’ll proudly admit that I’m the annoying gal with too much Christmas cheer each year… Unless, of course, you find me in a long line at the Walmart with granny checking customers out at a pace slower than a fat slug. Then you’ll here me whine, complain, and a guffaw like an annoying 2 year old that was forced to Christmas shop from dawn until dusk.

I drive Squirrel nuts! He likes the holidays well enough, but I tend to take holiday cheer to the extreme. I get, “Why are we putting all this junk up just to take it down in 2 weeks.”

What we? There is no we, people. It’s all me. I climb the attic stairs and drag the Christmas boxes down. I put the decorations up. I bake the cookies, fudge, and macaroni and cheese. I hang the stockings with care. Then, I take down the decorations, clean up the dishes, and gently place the stockings back in their rightful box until next year.

We—psht! I’m lucky he carts the for-reals tree out the door for trash pick-up. Don’t let that handsome face fool you. It’s all me.

I have several favorite Christmas films, but there are two I absolutely love and make a point to watch every year: The Santa Clause and Elf.

Will Farrel is my man. Seriously, the man is hilarious. I own almost all of his films and watch them over and over. I pulled an Elf move and added a bunch of sugary cookies to a bowl of white chocolate for a delicious holiday treat.

The base is a mixture of melted white chocolate, butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Mix it all up and stir in a ton of crushed chocolate chips, and you have yourself thick, creamy fudge.

The cream cheese creates a velvety base for the cookies and helps balance out the sweetness of the white chocolate and powdered sugar. This cookies & cream fudge is melt-in-your-mouth good.

The crushed Oreos add a chocolatey crunch.

Cookies & Cream Fudge

    First, your fudge is incredible. I’d find myself going back to the plate time and time again.
    Second, you made me laugh with “slow as a fat slug” and how there’s no we – because it’s the same here. It’s all me doing the decorations.

      I’m happy to hear that I made you laugh, Renee. I almost didn’t add that part for fear that I would offend someone. Thanks!

    Can you believe I’ve never seen Elf? It’s crazy. Although if we’re talking about Will Ferrell, I have to give a big shout out to Step Brothers. I know it’s probably more of a “guy movie,” but it just makes me laugh so hard every time!

    Love this fudge! I’d be nervous to be alone with a plate of it, that’s for sure.

    Perfect recipe for Elf fans! My favorite scene in Elf is where Zooey and Will are singing, “Baby It’s Cold Outside”. Gets me in the Christmas spirit every time! We love watching our favorite Christmas films over and over throughout the season…both vintage and new. Thanks for sharing, my friend. Pinning (of course)! Warmest wishes to you and yours for a meaningful and joyous Christmas holiday! xo

    • Jennie replied January 28th, 2014 at 12:13 pm

      Thanks so much, Lisa! That particular back drop is made with individual planks of wood that have been painted and sanded to make them look rustic. Squirrel (my hubs) was nice enough to make them for me.
