This oreo frosting fudge is so simple to make. It’s red, white, and blue and perfect for the 4th of July. The crushed up firework oreos have a pop rock filled frosting that pops in your mouth when you eat the fudge. Kids go crazy for that!
Happy July 4th, friends! I’m always throwing sweet treats together JUST before a party, because I’m a last minute kind of gal. That means I need to have an arsenal of quick and easy recipes on hand to make. It doesn’t get any easier than this. Seriously.
I wanted to create this recipe because I got sucked into the firework oreos that I saw at the store. My husband and I were talking about using pop rocks in a cookie recipe and I swear the next week these oreos came to my local Walmart. In the meantime, I had tried to use pop rocks in a cookies recipe but they don’t hold up to the heat.
So yeah, I knew I had to buy some of these sandwich cookies and make something that could be no bake so the little pop rocks inside of my cookies didn’t melt. It hit me that we could do a shortcut fudge using store-bought frosting and white chocolate chips. The frosting was already colored red and blue so that was a huge bonus.
There are two things that really bring this fudge to life. The blue frosting swirled into the top of the fudge and the red, white, and blue star sprinkles that I added to the top. I swear I almost threw out this fudge solely because I thought it was going to be ugly. Boy was I wrong.
Where’s my eye roll emoji? That’s my favorite emoji to use on my phone followed by the smiley face with the heart eyes in a close second.
