Recipe Tips 

  • Make sure to line your pan before you start. This helps the fudge come out of the pan easier and also makes for easy clean up.
  • When melting the chocolate chips, make sure to use low to medium heat and stir often.
  • It is important to let the fudge set completely before you cut it into pieces.
  • Cut with a clean sharp knife. You’ll want to keep warm water or a clean rag handy so that you can continue to clean off the blade while cutting the fudge.

Variations

  • Try adding pecans, walnuts or your favorite nuts in this recipe.
  • Add crushed candy canes on top of the fudge. Crush ½ cup and sprinkle all over.
  • Use milk chocolate chips instead of white chocolate.
  • Mix in different Christmas sprinkles to make the fudge even more festive.
  • Stir in some mint extract for a little minty flavor. A 1/2 teaspoon is a good amount.

Storing & Freezing

Storing: Wrap the fudge in wax paper, then place it in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a month.

Freezing: Wrap the fudge well in wax paper, then wrap that in tin foil. Then place in a freezer safe zip top bag or airtight container and freeze for up to 3 months.

To thaw, remove from the freezer and set the fudge on the counter but don’t open the container or bag for 2-3 hours until the fudge is fully thawed. Once thawed you can remove the fudge from its package and serve.

FAQ

Can I use dark or milk chocolate chips in fudge?

If you don’t like white chocolate, you can use chocolate chips in this recipe instead, however, you won’t end up with this white, red and green chocolate fudge combination.

How far in advance can I make this fudge?

You can make it up to two weeks in advance and store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

Can I skip the food coloring?

You can, but then you would just be left with red and white fudge!

Can I add any other toppings to the Grinch fudge?

Yes! Try adding your favorite Christmas sprinkles, red and white M&M’s, anything you want really.
