Ice Cream Fudges

Last summer I was inspired me to develop some fun fudge flavors and I was struck with the idea of creating fudges in ice cream flavors.

I started with a Cookies ’n Creme flavor.  The key to perfecting the creaminess of this flavor is using vanilla candy coating and not white chocolate. I used Oreos for the cookies in this fudge, but you can use any cookie that you prefer – I’ll take any excuse to have Oreos in the house!

This recipe turned out so well that I decided to continue with the ice cream flavored fudges.  When I think of ice cream flavors, I had to give a mint chocolate chip flavor a try.   I had a pack of Tollhouse Dark Chocolate and Mint morsels on hand, and they provided the perfect mint to chocolate ratio for this fudge.  Unfortunately, it seems that these are only available in the winter, so be sure to stock up!!!

And in case you did not stock up on mint chips in the winter, I needed a more summer appropriate recipe…like creamsicle!  This recipe was the most challenging – finding the perfect balance of vanilla to orange – but this recipe gets it just right!

I had so much fun experimenting with these flavors, I’m sure you’ll see another fudge series in the future! Any flavor suggestions?!
