Simple Saturday// Oreo Fudge

 Today I'd like to share a super simple recipe that my family added to our holiday dessert repertoire years ago: 3 ingredient Oreo Fudge (or wegman o's fudge or whatever knock off Oreo cookie you want to use). All you need is 8 oz of semisweet chocolate chips, 1 cup of butter, 1 cup of crushed Oreos, an 8inch square baking pan and wax paper. **We doubled our recipe in this picture so we used a baking sheet and a whole package of Oreos, but the process is the same. I haven't tried it, but I'd bet this recipe would be good if you substituted Oreos with thin mints or tagalongs or whatever other kind of cookie tickles your fancy.
 Start by putting your Oreos in a plastic bag and crushing them into small pieces.

 Pour your chocolate chips and butter into a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 2 min, stirring occasionally until melted and smooth.

 It won't look like much as it's melting, but if you persevere and stir it together...
 you'll get...
 silky smooth, chocolatey deliciousness!
 To this melted mixture pour in your crushed Oreos and mix until totally combined. Try not to shove your face into this deliciousness because it's hot and will probably burn your face.

 Spray your baking sheet with a little nonstick spray and place a sheet of wax paper on top. Pour your Oreo mixture on the wax paper and spread out until you have a smooth layer on your baking sheet.
 Refrigerate the tray for a few hours until solid. When you remove it, carefully lift the whole tray of fudge up by the wax paper on the ends and gently flip it over. You'll want to remove the wax paper before cutting the fudge into pieces. Because of the Oreo chunks you won't get nice even pieces, but instead a charming array of different sized Oreo goodness and this is what you want because it is quite rich so some people will appreciate a smaller piece while others will appreciate the larger pieces. And I guarantee everyone will come back for seconds...and thirds. The fudge will stay nicely for weeks in the fridge. Perfect to take out for all of those holiday get togethers. Enjoy!
