This time of year I have a million and one ideas for different Christmas cookies, treats and desserts that I want to make and share with you guys! So, if you have any suggestions of holiday recipes you want to see on here, please reach out and let me know!
This Christmas swirled fudge has been on my mind since last Christmas, and now I finally got to share it with you guys!
Christmas swirled fudge is only four ingredients, and so easy to make! It’s literally made in the microwave so you don’t have to worry about using a candy thermometer, boiling for the right amount of time, etc. You shouldn’t have any issues with your fudge not setting, or being grainy, or too hard.
How to make Christmas Swirled Fudge?
- Split your white chocolate chips into 3 separate medium sized microwave safe bowls. And split the sweetened condensed milk evenly into each of the 3 bowls too. Add red food coloring to one of the bowls, and green food coloring to another. Leave the third bowl white.
- Microwave each bowl individually, in 30 second increments, stirring for 30 seconds after each time in the microwave, until you can stir the white chocolate totally smooth. Repeat with each color. (Add more color if desired to the red and green bowls, my red was a bit pink, but it wouldn’t get much darker and still looked good together)
- Add a big spoonful of each of the color of the fudge into a prepared 8 or 9 inch pan (the 8inch pan will give you slightly thicker fudge. I used a 9inch pan.) Alternating colors until all the fudge is in the pan.
- Run a butterknife through the fudge to create a marbled look. Let the fudge set at room temperature for several hours, or in the fridge for a quicker setting time.
Slice the fudge up into pieces and enjoy.
How long will Christmas fudge last?
This Christmas swirl fudge should be stored in an airtight container, and can last for 2 to 3 days at room temperature. If you keep the fudge in the fridge it should last for 2 to 3 weeks.
Can you freeze Christmas fudge?
You can also freeze the fudge to make it last even longer. Wrap individual pieces in plastic wrap, then store them all together in a ziplock bag, so you can just thaw one piece at a time, when you want a sweet treat.
You can also freeze the whole block of fudge at once. Wrap the whole thing in plastic wrap, then put it in a freezer safe ziplock bag for a second layer. Thaw it in the fridge when you’re ready to serve. Then at room temperature for 15 to 20 minutes before slicing it up to serve.
Christmas Fudge Variations:
- Add nuts to the fudge for a yummy crunch. I like pecans or walnuts best.
- Add crushed/chopped up candy canes to the fudge, mixed in, or sprinkled on top.
- Add Christmas sprinkles for even more Christmas festive fun.
- Try other colors for other holidays and occasions. Red and pink for valentine’s day; purple, yellow, and green for Easter; red, white and blue for 4th of July, etc.
This Christmas Swirl Fudge is so delicious, it will be eaten up in no time. It’s soft, melts in your mouth, and is such a fun and festive treat. It’s perfect for making a bunch to share with friends and neighbors, or for serving up at a holiday party, or just when you want a fun holiday treat!
Christmas fudge is rich, smooth, and so delicious. It’s such a yummy homemade holiday candy option that everyone will love!
