How to Make Easy White Chocolate Fudge
Making my easy chocolate fudge only takes a matter of minutes. Even if you are baking with kids, it will still only take about 30 minutes to put this fudge together. Here is how it is made:
1. Mix the white chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, butter and vanilla together in a bowl over a double boiler. Stir until the white chocolate chips are melted.
2. Divide the melted chocolate fudge mix between three bowls.
3. Add different color food coloring to each bowl and stir well. Adjust your colors if needed. I like them extra bright to fit the Hocus Pocus theme!
4. Pour all three colors of fudge into one 8×8 pan. Swirl them together to make a fun design.
5. Add Halloween sprinkles if you’d like then refrigerate the fudge for four hours.
6. Slice and enjoy the tasty Hocus Pocus treats!
The hardest part of this white chocolate fudge recipe is definitely the waiting. I want to eat the spooky, Halloween themed fudge right away! Waiting for it to set is almost impossible but, I must say, it’s worth the wait! The creamy texture of the chilled fudge is delicious. It also slices so nicely once it is cold.
Tips and Tricks for making White Chocolate Fudge
This homemade, Halloween-themed white chocolate fudge recipe is quite simple but there are a few tips and tricks I want to share. Hopefully these little extra tricks will help you make perfect white chocolate fudge on the very first try.
- Melting the chocolate over a double boiler takes about 10 minutes. Be patient and do not turn up the heat or you risk burning the chocolate. Keep the heat low and stir occasionally.
- Once the fudge is completely set, you can slice it and store it in an airtight container for up to two weeks. Make a big batch now and serve it on Halloween!
- Evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk are two very different things. Be sure to use sweetened condensed milk to make this fudge.
- Resist the urge to put the fudge in the freezer to set faster. This will change the texture of the chocolate fudge and it will not be as creamy.
- I like to use gel food coloring to dye my white fudge recipe. Gel food coloring has less water and the colors are more vibrant.
- If you are baking with kids, have them stir the food coloring into the chocolate, pour the dyed chocolate fudge into the pan and add the sprinkles. These simple tasks are perfect for little hands.
