I never thought I could love a cookie as much as I love Oreos until the Golden Oreo came into my life. They look exactly like their chocolate cousins, only lighter in complexion. Golden Oreos have the same pleasant crunch that I’ve come to know and love in classic Oreos. However, unlike classic Oreos, Golden Oreos have a mellow vanilla flavor. It’s sweet, but not overly so, with a flavor that is just divine. My love for Golden and Classic Oreos is equal. Do not ask me to choose; I must have both.
Unfortunately, I find the Golden Oreo to be incredible under-utilized. Sure, you can find cookies and cream anything nowadays, but only with the original Oreo. Never does its golden sibling get any love. Well, I think that is a crying shame, and I found the need to remedy it. Therefore, I switched up my original Cookies and Cream Fudge recipe to yield a fruity twist made for the Golden Oreo: Raspberry Golden Oreo Fudge.
Sweet, smooth, and filled with bright raspberry flavor, this fudge is going to shake up your sweet tooth. Forget boring chocolate; this fudge features a creamy white chocolate base laced with raspberry flavor and studded with chunks of delicious Golden Oreos. It is absolute perfection, an ideal blend of creamy and crunchy. Plus, its pretty pink color and bright flavor is especially appropriate now that the warm weather is finally here.
The taste of the Golden Oreos meshes wonderfully with the raspberry. It’s melt-in-your-mouth goodness with minimal effort; no candy thermometer required! Finally, Golden Oreos are getting the acknowledgment they deserve.
A Few Tips Before You Get Cooking:
- Swap strawberry jello mix for the raspberry to enjoy a strawberrylicious twist instead.
- You can easily still use regular Oreos in here if you prefer. Their chocolate flavor will taste great with the raspberry.
- Fudge is always a great gift (but good luck not eating it all yourself).
- Fudge doesn’t freeze great. I tried it, and although it didn’t affect the texture, the flavor was tainted a bit.
- Use Double-Stuf Oreos to make this fudge extra awesome.
- DO NOT skip lining the pan with foil, or you will never get the fudge out. It’ll be a crumbled mess.
