My easy homemade Fudge Covered Oreos are so much better than the packaged Oreo cookies sensation that everyone loves!! The fudge coating makes one of the most popular store-bought cookies around even more delicious and truly to the point of being so delish there's no way to enjoy just one!
In a saucepan, combine the fudge icing ingredients. Add the sugar, butter, milk, and cocoa.
Heat to a rapid, rolling boil over medium-high heat. Set your timer and let the fudge icing boil for ONE FULL MINUTE. *This is so very important to the coating setting up correctly!
Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
Whisk or beat the icing for 3-5 minutes until the fudge is dark, glossy, and clinging to your whisk. The cooler it gets, the slower the icing will drip from your utensils.
Drop your Oreos into the cooled icing directly for the easiest method of coating each cookie completely.
Use tongs to flip and thoroughly coat each of the Oreos.
Allow as much of the fudge icing to drip from the Oreo cookie as possible.
Place each fudge-coated Oreo onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet or work surface. Allow the coated cookies to cool completely so that the coating sets up.
Once set, the 'footer' can be trimmed away if desired. Use a sharp knife and circle around each cookie, then press up from underneath the parchment paper to remove the cookies. The warmth of your fingertips will smooth the edges if you gently rub along the sides.*For best results, use fresh Oreos. Stale Oreos won't give a nice texture contrast between the crisp, firm cookie and creamy, fudgy coating.
