For as long as I can remember, fudge has been a staple during the holidays. Whether we were making fudge wreaths for friends and family or snacking on a fresh batch of the famous family secret fudge recipe, we always had some around for Christmas.
While I love the traditional milk chocolate fudge recipes, I thought I would switch things up a bit, and give everyone an amazing white chocolate Christmas fudge to enjoy this season. It only takes a few minutes to throw together and in no time you’ll have a creamy soft and decadent fudge topped with plenty of your favorite holiday sprinkles.
It’s the perfect treat for any occasion this time of year, whether you need a last-minute gift to give a friend, a tasty treat to bring to the office party, or just really need something sweet to snack on while wrapping presents. So don’t waste any more time, make this recipe now and find out just how amazing it really is!
How To Make White Chocolate Christmas Fudge
(full printable recipe at the end of the post)
Like I said before, this fudge recipe couldn’t be more simple, you don’t even need a stove or an oven! The whole recipe can be prepped by using only the microwave!
To make the whole recipe you want to start by lining a 9-inch x 9-inch pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper and set it aside. Then, in a large microwave-safe bowl combine chocolate chips, cookie mix, and milk and heat in the microwave on high. Carefully stir well and continue heating. Stir well, if needed heat again at short intervals until melted.
Next, you’ll stir some sprinkles into fudge then transfer to prepared pan and top with more sprinkles. Use clean hands to lightly press sprinkles into fudge. Once the fudge is prepped, refrigerate until firm. Lastly, cut into small serving and serve at room temperature.
Note: If you’d rather not use the microwave to heat the ingredients, simply place all ingredients into a small saucepan and heat on the stove at low heat until melted.
How Is White Chocolate Different Than Milk Chocolate?
We all know there is definitely a big difference between white chocolate and milk chocolate. It obviously has a completely different look and taste, but what actually makes them so different?
Milk chocolate is made from cocoa beans which give it the deep brown coloring and rich flavor. White chocolate, on the other hand, is made from cocoa butter. The lack of cocoa solids is what gives the chocolate it’s ivory color and different flavor profile.
Substitutes For White Chocolate
If you’re just not a huge white chocolate fan, no problem! There are plenty of substitutes you can make that will have this recipe tasting just as good as the original.
- Milk chocolate – For those that like a classic no-frills chocolate flavor.
- Dark chocolate – For those that like their chocolate not quite as sweet, but not too intense.
- Bittersweet chocolate – For those that like a strong and bold flavor with little sweetness added.
The Perfect Christmas Fudge For Gifting
Fudge has always been my go-to inexpensive gift idea. It’s just as nice as gifting a box full of handmade cookies, without the effort, and is just as thoughtful as a gift you might spend $15-$20 on.
The best way to really make this Christmas fudge into the perfect gift is to place it into a cute holiday cookie tin and add a cute bow, and name tag printable. Once you add those final touches, you’re sure to make anyone’s day brighter with the gift of white chocolate fudge.
How To Store White Chocolate Fudge
There are several different ways to store your white chocolate Christmas fudge, depending on what consistency you like, and how quickly you plan to eat all of it.
For a softer Christmas fudge, store the pieces in an airtight container at room temperature. To get a white chocolate fudge that has a firm and more “traditional” consistency, store the airtight contained pieces in the refrigerator.
Lastly, if you don’t plan on eating all the fudge right away, easily save some for later, and store any leftovers in an airtight container and place into the freezer.
How Long Does White Chocolate Fudge Last?
At room temperature: Two weeks
Refrigerated: One month
Frozen: Three months
