How to make Easter Fudge
Start by creating a Vanilla Fudge. Knowing How to Make Fudge is a simple trick that will make you the hit of every party!
Making fudge is easier than you think and it is so easy to personalize with your favorite ingredients and flavor combinations.

Whoppers. This Malt Ball Fudge is still one of my favorites. Just remember if you’re choosing Robin Eggs, they’ll get soft and chewy after a few days, so make it right before your event.
Today’s Easter Fudge recipe though can last weeks!
Let’s get started!
Prepare an 8-inch square baking dish by lining it with parchment paper. PRO TIP: use binder clips to secure the parchment paper to the sides of the pan!
Add white chocolate chips and marshmallow cream to a large mixing bowl (that’s attached to an electric mixer).
In a large saucepan, add butter, sugar, heavy cream, and salt. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring frequently. Once boiling, continue to boil for a full 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
After 5 minutes, remove from heat and pour into mixing bowl with the white chocolate. Using the electric mixer, blend for about one minutes, until white chocolate chips are melted and smooth.
Add your desired candies, folding them in gently and quickly. Pour mixture into prepared dish.
Top with sprinkles (if desired) and more candy for a finishing touch! Allow to set for about two hours at room temperature (or overnight). You can also refrigerate to speed set, if desired.
How to store fudge
For best results, allow the fudge to set up at room temperature. Once it’s set, slide it into a large, gallon sized, ziploc freezer bag and squeeze out all the air.
Don’t cut the fudge until you need it. This keeps it fresh longer! And don’t chill it unless you want it to last more than two weeks.
How to freeze fudge
First, wrap the uncut fudge in plastic wrap then slide into a large ziploc freezer bag, pressing out all the air.
Freeze for up to two months.
To thaw, place bag on counter to come to room temperature (usually best overnight). Slice and enjoy!

I am at a time in my life I can actually usually do what I want to do instead of so many family must do’s. One of the things I am doing is finding what I think are perfect from scratch recipes. Due to a alpa gal allergy where I’m not supposed to eat anything coming from a mammal I am having to alter recipes I can eat. I always fix it first the original way. This is my first foray into fudge world to find the perfect recipe.
This recipe was perfect! First time around! My husband is usually blah about desserts but he said ” This stuff is good !!@# ” I can’t keep him out of it! LOL
Thank you for such a good melt in the mouth recipe. I plan on trying your other ones to add to my collection. I just can’t figure out how to do it dairy free yet.

I love this idea to turn fudge into an Easter treat! It would look great in the kids Easter baskets and some left over for us big kids. And, as I always say, M&Ms and sprinkles make everything better.
