Christmas Cookie Fudge
Have you tried this?? I had to when I saw it on social media real quick. Sounded interesting to use sugar cookie mix to make semi homemade fudge! There are tons of ways you can tweak this too. This used white chocolate chips so that the colors would shine thru. Use semi sweet chips for a whole other flavor. Candies on top like our microwave peppermint fudge is fun too.
During Easter time we love jelly bean fudge which is an easy twist to make on this one too. This is NO bake too meaning you’ll need to heat it up to get it to melt and meld together, but no need for your oven. We love that.
Christmas Fudge Recipe
It’s almost November which means we’re going to skip right over Thanksgiving right?? 😉 Just kidding. First you’re going to want to make our microwave pumpkin fudge, and then want more! And this is the second one that will make your mouth water. Doesn’t matter what month you make it, but December is a given.
Cookie Mix Fudge
Really, once you make one batch you’re going to want to change things up. Just use the same basic measurements but you could use chocolate cookie mix instead. Pair that with dark chocolate chips and get a really deep flavor. Other variations depend on how big your imagination is. You’ll need;
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk 14 oz
- A few cups of white chocolate chips is what I like if I add colors into the mix
- or semi sweet for dark chocolate fudge, you can really change it up
- Coconut oil will help you melt chocolate chips in microwave
- Butter salted, softened
- Sugar cookie flavored mix, or your choice
- Sprinkles will bring color like red and green seen here
This will be made in a 8×8 or 9×9 pan. If you doubled this for a larger batch you could use a 9×13″ pan instead. Use a piece of parchment paper inside so you can lift it out to slice with a sharp knife nicely when solidified. Can be used to wrap it up to store later on too (if you have leftovers).
No Bake Christmas Fudge
I loved these when my girls were young but wanted to help bake in the kitchen. Especially during the holidays when they wanted to do all the things but I worried about using heat sources. NO problem with this Christmas dessert idea. Our lunch lady peanut butter bars was another fave.
- Use an 8 or 9 inch square baking pan, line this with parchment paper. Spray that with nonstick cooking spray.
- Place all of the ingredients EXCEPT the sprinkles into a microwave safe bowl.
- Heat on high for 30 seconds, then stir frequently with every further heating. Return to the microwave and heat in 30 second increments, stirring after each time until it is smooth.
- It MUST be well melted and smooth in order to solidify properly, keep that in mind with this sweet treat
- Stir in sprinkles if you choose to do so, reserving some for the top.
- Transfer your smooth mixture into the prepared pan. Top with additional sprinkles.
- Cover tightly with a piece of plastic wrap so it doesn’t touch the contents.
- Wrap around the pan tightly. Chill in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours until firm.
Use the parchment paper to lift the fudge from the prepared baking dish. Use a sharp knife to cut into equal sized squares and serve. I like to just cut what we are going to eat. If I have any left over a solid chunk is easier to wrap up tight to stay moist for later.
White Chocolate Christmas Fudge
If you wanted to use semi sweet or dark chips for that flavor I would use chocolate cookie mix for chocolate fudge. To liven up the outside, use white sprinkles for some flair. This makes a great give away with your neighbors too during the holiday season!
You can buy inexpensive cookie boxes like these to fill with goodies and share with your friends. This is fun to do to introduce yourself to someone new in the neighborhood or to bring sweet treats to a Christmas cookie exchange. Pair your delicious fudge bites with a few other favorites too like:
- A few cake mix crinkle cookies, colored appropriately for the season
- Use our air fryer gingerbread cookies recipe to make men or cookies your kids can decorate
- Then throw in a few store bought treats in as fillers
I am sure you have one you make each year that you could share. The best are those with a story on the backend like our Lebkuchen recipe. It was something my Grandma made only in Dec. and made a tin for each family with a few others. We only got like 4 in that tin and I got dibs on those because we only got a few.
If you have a family treat that is super different I would include one in your giveaway box. But don’t stop there, include a print out inside the box of how that one is made and what it’s called. A great way to share what has been special to you all of these years and may become a part of someone else’s baking experience too.
What’s the best way to store fudge
Ok so you will likely not finish this whole thing in one sitting, unless it’s for a large party. You never want to keep what’s left in your fridge. If you melted the ingredients well enough to begin with and hardened it in the refrigerator to begin with, the texture should stay in tact.
Instead, wrap your batch in plastic wrap tightly or inside foil. Store on your counter at room temperature and it will literally stay fresh for a few weeks this way. I mean ours has never lasted that long but just for reference you’ll be good to go for quite a while.
