White Chocolate Fudge
Calling all white chocolate fans! Knowing quite a few people that are all about white chocolate instead of other chocolates, I wanted to include them in my fudge journey and create a recipe just for them! This white chocolate fudge recipe was adapted from my chocolate fudge recipe and it is so so so easy to make. I love making it for parties or the holidays because it serves a whole lot of people.
There are basically two schools of thought behind homemade fudge – sweetened condensed milk or cooking the sugar, cream, and butter. I am of the group who prefers sweetened condensed milk because it makes making fudge fool-proof and super easy. I burnt my sugar the one time I tried the other method and it just wasn’t worth it.
Another important part of this recipe is that you refrigerate the fudge until it is fully set. If you look back at my red velvet fudge post, you can see the lines where each piece of fudge was cut aren’t quite as smooth and crisp as my white chocolate fudge. That’s because that one wasn’t 100% set because I was impatient. Don’t be impatient! It will just look a whole lot nicer if you just wait about 3 hours until the fudge sets before digging into it.
Common Questions About Making White Chocolate Fudge
How do you make homemade fudge?
Making homemade fudge is super easy. All you have to do is combine a can of sweetened condensed milk, 3 cups white chocolate chips, and 2 tablespoons butter in a pan, cooking until everything has melted together.
Do I have to use sweetened condensed milk?
No, many fudge recipes call for a mixture of sugar and cream but I found that I burned the sugar too easily and that the fudge turned out much more consistent with sweetened condensed milk.
Can I decorate white chocolate fudge?
Of course! While I didn’t in the fudge pictured, you could totally drizzle white chocolate, chocolate, peanut butter, etc or top it with festive sprinkles.
What kind of white chocolate chips can I use?
I used pretty generic white chocolate chips as you can see in the picture above but if you can, splurge and go for the good ones like ghiradelli. They will make it taste even better.
What other types of fudge can I make?
There are so many fudge options! Some of my favorites include –
- Chocolate Fudge
- Peanut Butter Fudge
- Red Velvet Fudge
- Espresso Fudge
- Nutella Fudge
- Cake Batter Fudge
- Chocolate Walnut Fudge
How long will fudge last?
About 3 months in the freezer.
