This 2-ingredient white fudge is super easy to make and livens up the dessert table for any special event. It’s also a delicious sweet treat and gift for neighbors, friends, and family members.
Easy Fudge Recipe
Back when I was much younger, making fudge was an all-day event. My mother would pull out boxes and cans of ingredients, line them up on the counter, and hand me an apron.
Although I enjoyed the process, by the time we finished making a couple of batches of fudge, we were exhausted. And the kitchen was a huge mess.
Now, I’ve learned so many different shortcuts to making a wide variety of fudge flavors. For example, this traditional chocolate fudge takes very little time and only a few ingredients.
Another one we enjoy is this 2-ingredient peanut butter fudge. Since peanut butter is one of my favorite foods, I make this type of fudge quite often.
2-Ingredient White Fudge Ingredients
As the title states, you only need 2 ingredients. It’s super easy as long as you’re prepared with the tools you need.
Here’s what you need to have ready to go:
- One 15 or 16-ounce can of vanilla frosting
- 10 or 12-ounce package of white chocolate chips or melting wafers
- Medium-size microwave-safe mixing bowl
- 8” x 8” square baking pan lined with foil
- Spoon for stirring
Although the fudge is wonderful without any decoration, I like to decorate it for the season. Since I typically make this during the Christmas holidays, I use green and red sprinkles.
It’s also great for Valentine’s Day, Easter, and birthdays. You can use sprinkles, small candies, or chocolate chips.
How to Make 2-Ingredient White Fudge
First, I like to get all the tools and ingredients ready so I don’t have to fumble for things as I go. It makes the process so much easier and makes me less prone to forgetting something.
Secondly, line an 8” x 8” square cake pan with aluminum foil. Make sure the foil is large enough to hang over the edge of the pan because this gives you a “handle” to lift the fudge after it sets.
Next, pour your melting wafers or white chips into a microwave-safe bowl.
Put it in the microwave and heat them on high for 60 seconds.
Stir the semi-melted chips and return them to the microwave for 30 seconds.
This time, when you remove the bowl from the microwave, you’ll want to add the frosting.
This is super easy. Simply scoop it out of the container and into the bowl.
Return it to the microwave for another 30 seconds. Now stir the contents until everything is well mixed.
Next, pour the mixture into your foil-lined pan.
You can either leave it as-is or add sprinkles to the top.
I like to jiggle the pan a little so the sprinkles sink just a tiny bit. Otherwise, they may fall off as you cut it.
Now, stick the pan of fudge into your refrigerator and let it set for a minimum of 2 hours.
It’s actually better to leave it for 6 hours or longer, but sometimes … well, sometimes you just need a bite of fudge.
After it sets, take the fudge out of the fridge. Grasp the edges of the foil and lift from the pan.
Finally, your fudge is ready to cut. I normally cut it into 1-1/2” or 2” squares, depending on how many people I want it to serve.
As you prepare your snack table for the holidays, you’ll want to offer a variety. Whether it’s for your family or guests, it’s nice to have options.
It also helps everyone get into the holiday spirit.
