Simple Ingredients for easy fudge recipe
- Sweetened condensed milk | Traditional fudge is often made with evaporated milk. However, to make this no-bake recipe nice and simple, you’ll use sweetened condensed milk instead. Be sure to grab the correct ingredient at the store, as they are often on the shelf next to one another and easily confused.
- White chocolate chips | Use good quality chocolate baking chips for the chocolatey base of the Christmas fudge recipe. I used Ghirardelli.
- Sugar cookie mix | A box or bag of your favorite sugar cookie mix gives the fudge its sugar cookie flavor. I tested using Krusteaz Sugar Cookie mix and Betty Crocker; both were great!
- Butter | For extra flavor and a smoother texture.
- Vanilla extract | Vanilla brings out the sweet sugar cookie notes of the white chocolate fudge.
- Marshmallow fluff or creme | The final touch for this sugar cookie-inspired fudge is a jar of marshmallow crème or fluff—YUM
How to Make Christmas Cookie Fudge Recipe
I love easy recipes that are not fussy; most fudge requires a candy thermometer and careful watching, not this recipe, it’s ready in minutes! Easy, delicious and pretty holiday treat!
Get started with sugar cookie Christmas fudge by taking out a square pan and spraying it with a little non-stick cooking spray or spray oil. Then, line the pan with parchment paper, the oil will help the paper stick. Cut the parchment paper to allow some to hang over the edge of the pan. This will help when you are ready to lift out and cut the fudge.
Now, grab a medium sauce pan, the butter, and the sweetened condensed milk. Set the stovetop to medium-low heat and melt the butter, then add the sweetened condensed milk. Stir the ingredients until the mixture becomes nice and hot, which won’t take long.
Open up the bag of white chocolate chips and sugar cookie mix. Next, add the two to the saucepan and whisk or stir until all ingredients are melted and silky smooth!
Then, remove the pan from the stove and add the vanilla extract. Finally, stir in the marshmallow fluff until it is well incorporated and smooth. Then, mix in the colorful sprinkles! Ta-da!
You’re almost done with this super simple recipe! Just pour the velvety fudge mixture into the prepared dish and smooth if needed. If you’d like, add more tasty Christmas sprinkles to the top of the fudge. Next, place the dish in the refrigerator and allow the sugar cookie fudge to set.
Storing this recipe in the fridge overnight will yield the best results, but you should let it chill for at least 2 hours until it’s nice and firm.
Lastly, use a sharp knife to slice your festive fudge into bite-size pieces, about one inch each! Serve and enjoy your homemade fudge!
- If you’re storing the delicious sugar cookie fudge for later, stack the bites in layers with parchment or wax paper between to prevent them from sticking to one another.
- This fudge is perfect for sending to friends and family through the mail! Be sure to seal them in an airtight tin for the best results. Print my fun Christmas gift tags!
This recipe calls for holiday sprinkles, like a mix of red and green sprinkles or any other variation. However, you can easily swap the sprinkles to make the fudge recipe perfect for any occasion.
- Use rainbow sprinkles for a kid’s birthday party or exciting school event.
- Add pink and red heart sprinkles for a sweet Valentine’s Day treat.
- Pour in red, white, and blue sprinkles for a Fourth of July celebration.
- Pick out soft pastel sprinkles for an Easter dessert.
Variations & Substitutions
- Omit the Marshmallow Fluff | If you aren’t a fan of marshmallow flavor, or cannot locate the ingredient at your local grocery store, just leave it out! It will still taste delicious. However; it does lend a light and chewy texture to the fudge.
- Dairy-Free Fudge | For dairy-free fudge, use coconut-sweetened condensed milk, dairy-free butter, and dairy-free white chocolate chips.
- Gluten-Free Christmas Cookie Fudge | Use a Gluten-Free Sugar Cookie Mix. Everything else should be fine! As always, check your labels.
Room Temperature | You may leave your creamy fudge bites on the counter for about one week. Store them in an airtight container with parchment or wax paper between the layers.
Refrigerator | This delicious fudge lasts up to three weeks when stored in an airtight container in the fridge.
Freezer | You may also freeze this recipe. Place the fudge in an airtight container or freezer bag and freeze for up to three months. Sugar cookie fudge is so delicious straight out of the freezer!

Frequently Asked Questions
This simplified and non-traditional fudge recipe tastes just as delicious as the real thing! Classic chocolate fudge recipes commonly include sugar, butter, and milk.
The ideal texture of any fudge recipe is smooth and firm yet soft enough to bite or slice through easily. You don’t want the texture to be crumbly or grainy, which often happens when it is overcooked or overmixed.
Sure! If preferred, you can microwave the holiday fudge by melting the white chocolate chips in 10-second increments, stirring in between, until it is nice and smooth. Then, just add the rest of the ingredients and continue with the recipe as directed.
Keep in mind that microwaving chocolate has an increased chance of burning it, which could cause seizing – becomes grainy and separated. If that happens, check out my chocolate ganache post and how to fix broken chocolate. So, be patient and take your time, heating the chocolate for just 5 to 10 seconds at a time
