Creamy Vanilla Fudge filled with colorful holiday Gumdrop candy pieces! So pretty for gift giving!


  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 bag (11 ounce) white chocolate morsels
  • 1 jar (7 ounce) marshmallow cream
  • 1 ½ cup gumdrops, chopped


  1. Prepare an 8-inch square baking dish by lining it with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Add white chocolate morsels and marshmallow cream to a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
  3. In a large, heavy saucepan, add butter, cream, sugar and salt. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring frequently. Once boiling, continue to boil for a full 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and pour over white chocolate and marshmallow cream. Using an electric mixer, blend for about one minute, until morsels are melted and mixture is smooth.
  4. Add gumdrops and fold them in with a spoon, gently. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish and refrigerate for two hours (or overnight), covered with a piece of plastic wrap.
  5. Once set, cut into bite sized pieces and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.


  • Gumdrop Fudge would be a great gift to give to neighbors and friends. Fill a mason jar, add a lid, wrap some ribbon around it and give it away! Depending on the size of jar you use, you can make several jars of gifts from this recipe. Add some whole gumdrops as filler and more color too!
  • Not a fan of gumdrops? No problem! So many colorful fruit candies would be delicious folded into white chocolate fudge. Try Skittles, orange Jelly candies, Mike & Ike's. . .you name it!
  • If you won't be giving this away or enjoying the fudge right away, I like the slice the fudge just before eating for best freshness.
  • Use a sharp knife with a straight edge (not serrated) to cut Gumdrop Fudge.
