Fun and festive Jelly Bean Fudge recipe!

Ingredients

  • 1 jar (7 ounce) marshmallow cream
  • 1 bag (11 ounce) white chocolate morsels
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 ½ cups jelly beans (spring mix), divided
  • 1 Tablespoon green sanding sugar

Instructions

  1. Prepare a 9-inch springform pan by lining it with foil. Wrap foil around an empty fruit or vegetable can. Place in center of springform pan and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the marshmallow cream and white chocolate morsels. Set aside.
  3. In a large saucepan, add sugar, heavy cream, unsalted butter and salt. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring frequently. Once boiling, continue to boil for a full 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and pour over marshmallow mixture. Using an electric mixer, blend for about one minutes, until morsels are melted and mixture is smooth.
  4. Fold in the 1 ½ cup jelly beans, until combined. Pour into prepared pan. Sprinkle with green sanding sugar. Using the remaining jelly beans, arrange into flowers on top of fudge. Once decorated, place fudge, uncovered, into the refrigerator for 4 hours, or overnight.
  5. When ready to serve, remove fudge from springform pan by releasing the latch. Unwrap the foil and place on a serving plate. You may need to use a butter knife to gently cut and remove the center can, wiggling it out gently. Fill center of ring with remaining jelly beans. Serve with a knife so guests can cut their own pieces! ENJOY.

  1. This has to be the cutest fudge I have ever seen!! So your mom totally didn’t care that you would hide the food from your brothers? I grew up with a half brother and half sister, so they weren’t around all the time and when they were all I wanted to do was share. It makes me giggle reading your post. So need to make this fudge asap! Cutest idea ever!! Pinned! 😉

    1. I don’t know if my mom knew growing up that I hid food. She probably assumed one of them ate it all, haha. She knows now though, cause we talk about it. And we talk about how my brothers never ate Golden grahams (my favorite cereal) because I would take the box to my room and eat it like a snack, haha.

  2. I love the idea of this in a ring of fudge! And so festive with the Jelly Bellies.

  3. What a fun recipe, and I absolutely love those gorgeous Jelly Belly mixes! I mean how can you go wrong with jewel tone jelly beans? Love!

  4. What a fun idea for Easter and spring in general. I loooooove jelly beans! Even though I don’t celebrate Easter, I’d always ask my friends to bring me any extra jelly beans (and Reese’s eggs!) they have from their Easter baskets haha

  5. I can see how hiding food from 3 older brothers would be the way to get the things you wanted to eat without them scarfing it first!!! I do love Jelly Belly jellybeans over any other…Dr. Pepper beans rule!!! And this is seriously the cutest fudge!!! I love the cute flowers on top!!!

    1. haha, my kids love the DrPepper ones too. And the Harry Potter ones are fun of course 🙂

  6. That has got to be the prettiest fudge ever!! Those jelly beans are such gorgeous colors — Jelly Belly’s are my absolute favorite!!

  7. Yup, I had brothers. And yup, I’m a food hider too. Must have something to do with having four boys of my own now. Love this jelly bean fudge, says Easter and spring!

  8. Yeah I imagine how you’d have to have some serious moves to keep three brothers from eating all the good stuff! These fudge is so darn cute. Love it!

  9. Aimee, I am SO with you! My older brothers would take my food, too! So I hid everything, and as a result, I still feel that urge. I have a very clear memory of wrapping up a piece of pumpkin pie and hiding it in the egg bin.
    This fudge is a dream. My kids would LOVE this. Maybe I’ll be the best mom ever and make it!

    1. haha, I used to take boxes of StarCrunch and Golden Grahams and hide them in my room. Love the pumpkin pie in the egg bin 😉
