Strawberry Swirl Fudge


I went and did it again.

I made fudge.

Last week I helped host a baby shower for my sister in law, Casey. And, they are having a girl! The first girl in 8 years (3 nephews have come along the way to our family during this time, but no girls).


Needless to say, it’s super exciting. And it was very pink!

Strawberry and Cream Fudge is easy and delicious! You can DO this! You can EAT this! You GOT this! You can learn how to make fudge! Sorry, getting carried away? Just excited about a new baby girl coming to our family around Christmas!!

I hope you’re enjoying my new site! I’m still working on some features and updates and ironing out the kinks, so thank you for your patience!!

  1. Hi Aimee! I haven’t ever heard of Strawberry and Cream Fudge, but wow, it sounds incredible! Your website is so darling and your photos are gorgeous! Congrats on the addition of a baby girl to your family. That’s wonderful news! I look forward to reading your blog. I’ll definitely be adding it to my daily reads.

  2. Looks great and so pretty. I bet everyone at the shower loved it!

  3. What a beautiful fudge Aimee! I’m on a fudge kick lately. And I love that this is PINK! Can you tell that’s one of my favorite colors? 😉

  4. I can totally see myself with that bowl in my hands enjoying your pretty treats, one by one!
    Congratulations on the upcoming addition to your family!!

  5. Deanna

    So excited to try this!! It’s super pretty and sounds amazing. Congrats on a new baby girl for the family! I have a boy and 2 of my good friends had girls at the same time… it was the best of both worlds – I didn’t have to forgo anything cute while shopping. If it was for a boy, I could grab it, and if it was for a girl, I could grab it. LOL Enjoy.

  6. A fudge that’s pink?! I love you. This is awesome and beautiful, Aimee! Is there a flavor fudge you can’t make?

  7. OMG I love all things pink! This is perfect for a girl baby shower AND for breast cancer awareness month. I am loving fudge right now. You are so creative! How do you come up with these great recipes?!?! And how are you getting such amazing photos in the fall… it gets dark earlier and earlier these days in these Cincinnati parts 🙁 Keep the fudge coming!

  8. You are so creative. This looks fantastic!

  9. Amanda

    These are just lovely fudges….so pretty in pink. May I know is there other ingredient to substitute for Marshmallow Creme? Thanks and have a nice day 🙂

  10. Wow, this fudge looks incredibly dreamy. Can’t wait to try it. Thanks for linking to Mandy’s Recipe Box!

  11. What a fantastic idea! I love fudge but I’ve never tried this type before. Pinning 🙂

  12. Mmmm this fudge looks so good and so pretty, too! Love the pink and white!

  13. Megan

    Can’t wait to try this recipe, but first, I have a question. Is the white chocolate still hard or melted when you mix it in? I want to make sure that I do it correctly! Thanks, and keep the rockin’ recipes coming!

    • Dee

      I have the same question but cannot find where anyone has answered. I am assuming that the chocolate has to be melted first. I will be trying this tonight for Valentines Day tomorrow. Hope it works with it melted first.

      • Hi Dee, NO you do NOT need to melt the chocolate first. Put it in your bowl and set it aside with the marshmallow cream. Once you pour the hot mixture over it, and turn your mixer on, it will melt and become smooth. It takes about 1-2 minutes with the whisk attachment. ENJOOY!

  14. Oh how cute! Love your blog! Everything looks divine. 🙂

  15. Man, you really do make the best fudge!!! I think this pink fudge is perfect for a little girl baby shower! Just the start of all the pink yet to come (since she’s the only girl)! Bet it’s sweet and delicious!

  16. Aimee, this fudge is gorgeous! I love the pink AND the flavor combo–I bet you have enough awesome fudge recipes to do a cookbook!

  17. I loved this fudge…of course I love all your fudge. So creamy and rich and smooth…dang it…now I want fudge and it is WAY too late to be making any!

  18. This fudge is so cute and fun! I might just have to try it for myself! I’m trying to get better at candy making, I’ll have to let you know how it goes.

  19. Love this for a baby shower. Great idea!

  20. Ooooooooo
    These cuties are dangerous, though they have a high level of yummyness 😉

  21. Jane

    Well , I was so excited to try this fudge,but, I was so disappointed in it, it tasted good, but I have to eat it with a spoon, it did not firm up as it should , I followed the instructions and boiled it as long as it said to, I won’t be making it again.

    • I’m so sorry to hear that Jane, I’ve made this fudge and many variations of it with no problems. Besides double checking all ingredients and measurements, without being in your kitchen with you, I’m not sure what help I can offer! I know how frustrating it is though to try and make something and it not work out right.

    • Lena

      I had the same problem with this fudge. The upper half with gelatine looks fine and firm, but the white one is not firm at all.
      It also came out too sweet for my taste ( even after I used 1.5 cups of sugar, not 2).
      But it looks very pretty and my kids don’t mind over-sweetness 🙂

    Do you melt the chocolate?

  23. Amy

    I made this for a baby shower a few days ago and received lots of compliments. It was my first time to make fudge, and I was pleased at the simplicity. It turned out beautifully and tasted delicious. Thank you!

  24. megan

    Did you use a bag of white chocolate chips or a bar of white chocolate? Not sure if it makes a difference or not.

  25. Does this fudge come out soft and chewy or hard like proper fudge? I made another strawberry and cream on and it was very soft (still yummy though) but yours sounds amazing 🙂

  26. shannon

    Hi there, the fudge looks dreamy! im going to get the ingredients tonight! but when you say geletin mix do you mean a regular jello packet? lol that may be a silly question lol

  27. Marnie

    I am super keen to make this for a friend’s little girl baby shower but have a couple of questions. I’m in Australia, and I’m not sure we have Marshmallow Creme. What is it & is there a possible substitute? Also, how early in advance could I make it? Does it last a while? (If not eaten beforehand!)

  28. Joann

    I plan on making this as a favor at my baby shower next month. I know you have a recipe for orange dreamsicle fudge but do you think I could just substitute orange jello in this recipe instead of strawberry (or any flavor for that matter) and it would still turn out yummy?

  29. Jerry Sue

    When making fudge with cream or milk, does fudge need to be refrigerated.

  30. Anonymous

    Hello Aimee. I just want to double check and see if I understand you correctly. Do I add just the strawberry jello powder gelatin to the fudge or do I make the package jello and then add it to the fudge like that? Babies make the world so bright & beautiful 😉

    Thank you. Dee dee.

  31. Dee dee

    Ooops I forgot to add my email to my jello question.

    Thanks Dee dee.

  32. Lara ayres

    Hey Dee Dee.. I went to Kroger looking for a heavy cream…all they had was a whipping cream or half and half. which one should I get?

  33. Sherri

    I made this candy last Christmas, and it was a big hit. I am going to make it tomorrow and try using orange jello. It is a great recipe!

  34. Rosie

    I made this fudge and it turned out delicious. I received a lot of compliments. Thank you for the recipe! I’m going to try the cookies and cream one next!

  35. I just made this last night! Absolutely DIVINE!! Last time I made fudge I ruined a pan and a spook and vowed to never try it again! This was sooo easy and sooo delicious! Thanks so much for sharing!!

  36. Jaci

    Just imagine swapping blue raspberry or blueberry jello for a boy’s shower

    Hi, this looks awesome! I love to bake, but have never made fudge (it may sound ridiculous, but I had to google up the word “fudge” to know its meaning; in my country the word fudge is  associated with melted chocolate, thats it).
     I’m planning to make this for a cancer awareness activity, but I would like to add some blue swirls on the recipe; so that half the squares come out pink and the others, blue. I was thinking, should I divide the rest of the mixture in two bowls and add 1/2bsp strawberry jello to one, and 1/2 tbsp blueberry jello to the other? Would that work? Or it would be less complicated to make two batches? Thank you!

  44. Anna

    Thank you! I’m looking forward to see how it comes out!

  45. Anna

    Hello again Aimee. I made the recipe and it turned out well, so far everyone is blown away with it. But the activity was moved for another week and I’ll be making it again, but would like to cut the sugar a bit. Can I use less sugar without messing the consistency? Or what would you suggest? Thank you 🙂

  46. Loved making this last night, however the fudge i made is still quite soft and if left piled in a box starts sticking together.
    Is there something i did wrong? should this set up harder? or is there something i can do to make it go harder next time?

    Tastes amazing tho! and everyone in my office has loved it 🙂 Thank you

    WHY do you have so many ads on this page and on the MOBLE VERSION???? I could not view this page on my mobile device because the ads were jumping me to other pages! VERY ANNOYING!!! If you want visitors to visit and stay on this site,GET RID OF ALL THE ADS,PLEASE! I enjoy your recipes,especially the Strawberry Fudge Swirl,but the ads made it difficult to enjoy your site.Sorry!

  48. Rosalie

    Sorry if I offended you but I think you misinterpreted my post.I didn’t mean your site was annoying,It’s a beautiful site and I understand all the work that goes into it.It’s all the ads that automatically redirect you.You are very lucky that you can earn a living from your site.Most people can’t do that these days.My mother cooked and baked her entire life and never earned a penny.
    As for the recipes being free,who really owns any recipe and why should anyone pay to view a recipe on any website.All I have to do is dig out my family recipes or call my sister or my friends to get a recipe.I would never pay any site for that.Recipes are handed down,passed around over and over for years and years.Julia Child must be laughing her butt off! LOL Anyway,thanks for your hard work and sharing the recipes you’ve collected.Have a wonderful holiday season.

    Made it and it was so good!!! Now time to try Maple fudge recipe 🙂

  51. Elizabeth

    I had some at a baby shower and everyone just raved about how fantastic it was! Thank you for sharing! Question, can the fudge be frozen to make ahead of time for an event? Or does that ruin the texture?

  52. Rhonda Johnson

    Omg I made this strawberry fudge tonight!!!!!????????????????????????it’s so delicious!! I love all your fudge Recipes, I made te your orange cream fudge as well !!! Thank you so much. I’m a beginner baker . I’m loving your recipes 

  53. Jocelyn

    I just made this fudge. I didn’t grow up eating fudge since I am not a big chocolate eater and I wasn’t exposed to it. Now that I know fudge can be so flavorful and varies in flavor, I will be making it more often. I’m just waiting on it to set so I can serve to my students for Valentines Day tomorrow. Thanks a bunch! Ten thumbs up! 

  54. Jan

    Sorry if someone else asked the question and I haven’t seen it: does this fudge have to be refrigerated, or is that just to get it to set up more quickly? I’d like to give to someone as a gift—wondering if I can put it in a tin (separating layers with waxed paper) without it melting or “going bad.” I am able to store my chocolate fudge in a tin at room temp. Also, does it freeze well as a “make ahead” item?

    Thanks so much.

  57. Leigh

    If i wanted to flavor the entire batch would 1 box of jello be enough or should i use 2? Want to do 1 solid color and one 2-color batch. Thx, cant wait to make this!

  58. Leigh
