Chocolate Fudge

Love creamy, dreamy, super smooth fudge? Then don&rsquot stir the sugar mixture as it boils. Let it cook (undisturbed) to 234 degrees F and your final candy will have the perfect, crystal-free texture you want.

Peanut Butter Fudge

You only need 4 ingredients to whip up a batch of this easy microwave fudge &mdash making it one of our go-to recipes during the busy holiday season.

Chocolate Fudge

Making fudge (the traditional way) is an exact science. Cook your candy to the wrong temperature and you&rsquoll end up with something completely different than what you expected! That being said , we can&rsquot think of anyone better than Alton to show you how it&rsquos done.

Quick and Easy Peppermint Fudge

Like a cup of cocoa stirred with a minty candy cane, this easy-to-make chocolate fudge has lots of festive, wintry flavor.

Microwave Fudge

No one will believe you made this old-fashioned chocolate fudge in a matter of minutes! You can stir in any nuts you like (or none at all!) but walnuts will add a hint of nostalgic goodness.

Birthday Cake White Chocolate Fudge

The secret ingredient in this creamy white fudge is marshmallows. They give this sprinkle-topped treat the perfect texture &mdash no candy thermometer needed!

Cinnamon-Chocolate Fudge

The warm, sweet flavor of ground cinnamon is the perfect complement to chocolate, so Giada recommends choosing chocolate chips with a little intensity. Look for ones that are about 60% cacao solids and you'll get just the right balance of flavor.

Chipotle Fudge

Sweet and salty with a hint of smoky spice: you&rsquore going to love this lively twist on a classic!

White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge

The beauty of this fudge recipe is that it&rsquos so easy to adapt. If peppermint&rsquos not your thing, swap the crushed candy topping for sprinkles, chopped nuts or dried fruit.

Five-Minute Fudge Wreath

Pro baking tip: Always read the recipe in its entirety before you head into the kitchen. In the case of this pretty, chocolate fudge wreath, it helps to know that the candy sets up almost instantly &mdash so you&rsquoll need to work quickly when you make it!

Malted Milk Fudge

Malted milk powder gives this chocolate fudge a rich, toasty flavor &mdash and malted milk balls add just the right amount of crunch. Talk about a tasty upgrade!

White Chocolate Pistachio Cherry Fudge

Almost too pretty to eat, this rustic, white chocolate fudge is decorated with bright green pistachios and crimson cherries &mdash a sophisticated nod to the beauty of the holiday season.

Chocolate-Peanut Butter Fudge

Traditional fudge recipes call for heavy cream and corn syrup, cooked together to a very precise temperature. This sweet and swirly two-tone fudge simplifies things by using canned sweetened condensed milk instead.

Recipe Box

Foolproof Chocolate Fudge

I thought I had given you all of my holiday recipes, but it turns out that I forgot the most important one of all.  Fudge! 

As you know, I make fudge every holiday season without fail.  No Christmas is complete without the requisite fudge-packing jokes.  This particular fudge recipe is the same one I’ve been making since high school.  My dad brought home a plate of holiday cookies from a company party in the late eighties, and I immediately zeroed in on the fudge.  For weeks, I badgered him to get the recipe.  I nagged him as only a 16-year-old adolescent female with a cocaine-like chocolate addiction can (count your blessings, Dad).  Finally, he tracked down the source of the fudge, and she wrote out the instructions.  I still have her original hand-written note, though I never got her name.  With the secrets to delicious fudge in my possession, I could presumably get back to the important business of shellacking my entire head in a candy-like shell of Aqua Net.

It wasn’t until a few years ago that I realized there was a slight error in the recipe.  The following was written in the ingredient list: "¼ cup (1 stick) butter."  Since I’m a parenthetical kind of girl, I used 1 stick.  Well, ¼ cup is actually half a stick of butter, but my high-school self didn’t catch the mistake.  My early-thirties self didn’t either, so I’ve been making this stuff extra delicious for years!  Still do.

I hesitate to use the word foolproof with any recipe, especially for fudge.  Especially on the Internet.  I mean, anything can fail if you try hard enough.  This recipe is no different.  But it’s certainly more forgiving than most fudge recipes.  The small dose of corn syrup from the marshmallows prevents the sugar from recrystallizing in a coarse, grainy fashion, ensuring a nice, creamy texture.  If you’re good at stirring, then you can make this fudge.  You don’t even need a candy thermometer.  (Now before you write off this recipe as substandard because it doesn’t use a candy thermometer, I’ll have you know that I made a batch yesterday WITH a candy thermometer just for kicks, and guess what?  It still works.  As long as you live at sea level and don’t double the recipe, five minutes of hard boiling will get you to the soft-ball stage.)

Now that I’m older and snobbier, it has occurred to me that maybe I should move to a fancier, non-marshmallow-based recipe.  But why?  Everybody loves this fudge.  They tell me it’s the best fudge they’ve ever had.  I, for one, can eat a whole pan on my own.  I certainly pay my dues with the other candy I make this time of year, a time-consuming and finicky praline-ish butter-pecan fudge (also known as Boston cream candy).  I figure I’ve been making this version of chocolate fudge for 20 years and I’m probably not going to change.  Not unless you can direct me to a recipe that calls for two whole sticks of butter! 

The better the chocolate you use, the better the resulting fudge.

1 cup (6 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp. vanilla
2¼ cups sugar
1 stick unsalted butter (or half!)
¾ cup evaporated milk
16 large marshmallows
¼ tsp. salt

Line an 8-inch square cake pan with foil.  Get your handheld electric mixer at the ready.  Also, have some oven mitts nearby.

To a large bowl, add chocolate chips and vanilla.  Set aside.  In a medium, 4-quart saucepan, add sugar, butter, milk, marshmallows, and salt.  Stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, bring to a boil over medium heat.  You want the marshmallows to be just about melted by the time the bubbling starts.  If they’re not, reduce the heat a bit until they do.  Bring mixture to a heavy boil and, always stirring, set the timer for 5 minutes.  Careful—hot mixture can spatter.  Use an oven mitt if necessary.  After 5 minutes, the temperature should be in the soft ball range (235°F-240°F). 

Remove pot from heat immediately, and carefully pour hot mixture over chocolate chips.  On a low speed, blend with mixer until uniformly brown.  Blending on high speed will introduce lots of air bubbles, which you don’t want.  Quickly pour fudge into your prepared pan.  Let cool until firm.  Makes 2 lbs.

Easiest Ever Two-Ingredient Chocolate Fudge Recipe

Traditional, old-fashioned stovetop chocolate fudge is not that hard to make. One day I’ll prove that by posting a recipe and tutorial.

But the process is a little time consuming.

And there are days that you don’t want to wait for your delicious homemade concoction to boil, set and cool to creamy perfection.

There are days that you just want to bite into a decadent piece of melt-in-your-mouth goodness as quickly as possible.

At times like that, my best chocolate fudge recipe is all you need. Chocolate bliss is just two ingredients and two steps away.

As quick as you can mix your favourite chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk, you’re ready to enjoy some creamy, dreamy fudge. And the variations of this recipe are pretty much limitless.

Use dark chocolate chips and stir in a cup of walnuts before spreading the fudge into the pan, or use white chocolate chips and coconut extract for a tropical treat.

I added one teaspoon of peppermint extract to my fudge to satisfy my craving for mint chocolate.

Pecans, crumbled cookies, raisins or crushed candy canes can all be stirred into your fudge before it’s pressed into the pan to set.

The end result is always perfect and will satisfy the cravings of the most die-hard chocoholic. With fudge this easy, you may never want to bother with traditional stovetop fudge!
