When I started getting ready for the wedding (which is now 4 weeks away!!!) I started a pinterest account.  I didn't think I'd use it much and was attempting to ONLY use it for wedding.  Yeah right!  That thing is great.  It's like a computerized filing system.  It's not just social network, it's USEFUL!  Now I have an easy way to keep recipes organized without clutter!  Score!  Over Christmas, I kept wanting to make this recipe I saw on Peabody's site but couldn't find the "special edition" oreos she used.  Then one day I was in the store and saw the ginger "Newman O's."  They are basically organic oreos and would work perfectly!  I made the fudge and man, was it good!  Good thing I planned to take it to work.  And it was soon gone.  Just know that it is sweet!  I didn't have the marshmallow creme so added just a bit more confectioner's sugar, which may be one reason it was so sweet...and i have a feeling it was a bit more "icing-y" than it would have been.  But still, I would totally make it again!  As always, thanks, Peabody!

Gingerbread Oreo Fudge

3 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup unsalted butter
2/3 cup Evaporated Milk
2 cups white chocolate chips
1 cup marshmallow creme (optional)
1/2 cup finely crushed ginger flavored sandwich cookies
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup crumbled Gingerbread Oreos

Line 9-inch-square baking pan with foil.  Combine sugar, butter and evaporated milk in medium, heavy-duty saucepan. Bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Boil, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in white chocolate chips, marshmallow creme (if using), finely crushed cookies and vanilla extract.
Pour into prepared pan. Sprinkle crumbled cookies on top. Gently swirl cookies into fudge using a knife without touching bottom of pan.  Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm.  Lift from pan; remove foil. Cut into 48 pieces. Store in airtight container in refrigerator. Peabody got 12 pieces…I actually got 48…they were very little but it was SOOOO rich!
