Two Fantastic Gourmet Fudge Recipes You Can Make At Home

Food & Cooking Blog

It's hard to beat gourmet fudge from a candy store, but with a little time and attention to detail, you can make great fudge at home, too. Here are two beginner-friendly fudge recipes that will have your mouth drooling -- and your family members begging you to "make that again!"

Spiced Chocolate Fudge

When you first bite into this fudge, you detect smooth, creamy, classic chocolate. Then seconds later, you get hints of cinnamon and cloves. Plan ahead when making this recipe -- it has to refrigerate for 2 hours before you can eat it.


  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened, condensed milk
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more or greasing pan
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Coat the bottom and sides of an 8-inch square pan with butter. Then, line the pan with parchment.

In a saucepan, combine the condensed milk, cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, chocolate chips, and butter. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the chocolate is fully melted and the mixture is uniform. Spread the fudge into the prepared pan. (It will be thick.)

Place the fudge in the refrigerator, and let it set for 2 hours. Grab the edges of the parchment to lift the entire block of fudge out of the pan. Then, use a sharp knife to cut the fudge into 1-inch squares. Store in the refrigerator.

Peppermint Fudge

Perfect for the holiday season but also delicious year-round, this fudge is flavored with mint extract and decorated with crushed candy canes. You can make it with dark or milk chocolate, according to your tastes.


  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened, condensed milk
  • 2 1/2 cups chocolate chips (milk or dark chocolate, depending on preference)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1/4 cup crushed candy canes
  • Cooking spray

Spray an 8-inch square pan with cooking spray, and then line it with parchment. In a medium saucepan, combine the butter, chocolate chips, and sweetened condensed milk. Stir constantly until the chocolate melts and a smooth, uniform mixture is created. Remove the mixture from the heat, and quickly stir in the peppermint extract.

Spread the fudge into the pan, and before it has a chance to start hardening, sprinkle it with the candy canes. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Then, lift the parchment out of the pan, and use a sharp knife to cut the fudge into 1-inch cubes. Store in the refrigerator.

Delicious, Nutritious Berries

I absolutely adore sweet, tasty berries. I especially like strawberries and blueberries. Do you desperately desire to eat more fresh foods this spring and summer? Consider stocking up on colorful berries when you visit your local supermarket or farmer’s market. Berries are packed with health benefiting antioxidants, vitamins, and fiber. In addition to eating them by the handful, you can incorporate them into many of your favorite snacks or entrees. For instance, top a cup of plain, Greek yogurt with berries. Put them in fruit, green, or chicken salads. Use berries to make smoothies. On this blog, I hope you will discover ingenious tips to help you eat healthier during the warm weather months. Enjoy!
