Fudge-a-Mania

When I was little I loved those Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Creme bars.  I was always the little kid who secretly added it to the conveyor belt at the check out counter without Mom seeing.  As I grew up, my sweet tooth turned on white chocolate and became partial to dark chocolate, but I still have that cookies ‘n’ creme craving every so often–usually I satisfy the craving with Cookie Monster Ice Cream from Creole Creamery (#1 STOP FOR ICE CREAM IN NOLA!) but this time I decided to make some fudge.  Fudge is so simple to make and who doesn’t enjoy it?  You can google Cookies ‘n’ Creme Fudge and almost every recipe is the same, but I included the one I used below.  The fudge was very rich, so don’t make the mistake of cutting yourself off a brownie size portion unless your ready for it.
