Recipe Tips:

  • Creamy Fudge – If you have problems with the white chocolate being creamy when melted. You can add a small amount of vegetable oil to the melted chocolate.  
  • Size of Pan – We used a 8×8 baking dish to make this fudge. If you prefer a thinner fudge you can use a 9×9 pan.
  • Line the pan – The entire pan of fudge mixture can easily be lifted out. When the pan is lined with parchment paper. You can also spray it with cooking spray.
  • Cutting Fudge – If the fudge is made into a 8×8 baking dish, you can get 16 slices. We like to plate the red heart candy in the middle of each slice.
  • Melting Chocolate –  Make sure that you are melting the white chocolate chips in a large microwave safe bowl. You want the mixture to be contained to the bowl so it does not make a big mess.
  • Chill before cutting – Make sure the fudge has been giving enough time to chill before cutting. It will make it easier to cut and they will look better.
  • Quality Chocolate – Since this fudge is made with simple ingredients, we recommend using quality chocolate. The fudge will taste better and so will the texture.

  • Drizzle Chocolate – To add flavor and texture, drizzle the tops of the green fudge with melted white chocolate.
  • Red Heart Candy – If you unable to find a red heart sprinkle. You can use a Red M&M or red sprinkles to top the fudge.

When preparing to serve your fudge, we recommend following these steps to cut your fudge properly. Make sure there is a red heart in each slice of fudge.
