How many servings does one batch of fudge make?

Each batch of this fudge recipe will make about 12 servings. That said, you can cut this pan of fudge into however many squares you’d like when it’s done chilling.

Once the fudge is set you can pull it out of the pan and cut it into squares that are sized however you need them to be. It makes an 8×8 sized pan of fudge!

You can double the recipe and put it into two separate pans if you’d like or you can put it into a 9×13 pan which also works!

I usually make a double batch of fudge when I prepare mine so that I have some for my family to devour and some for us to share with friends, family members, and coworkers or classmates. I hate making a cute recipes and then telling my family they can’t enjoy them so a double batch is always an easy solution!

Who can enjoy this tasty sweet treat?

Anyone and everyone! This tasty dessert recipe is naturally gluten free. As always I’d suggest using brands you know and trust so you don’t get any sneaky filler ingredients that will impact you but all the ingredients should be free from gluten naturally so there’s no changes to be made to accommodate that.

This recipe does use dairy products though so if you have any issues there you’d need to make some significant substitutions and I’m not sure how the grinch fudge would come out if you swapped out all the necessary ingredients for dairy free alternatives.

That said, if you do that, be sure to let us know how it turns out so others can try it if needed!

Is this a no cook fudge recipe?

I consider this a no cook fudge recipe because the heating is only focused on melting the chocolates there’s no need to get the ingredients up to certain temperature, etc.

Since you can also accomplish all of the steps in the microwave instead of a sauce pan if you like it’s a no cook recipe in my book!

This is a great fudge recipe to have kids help with if you want. You can easily melt the chocolates in a small crockpot or in a microwave safe dish so that they can help with worrying about the stove!

What do I need to make this holiday recipe?

For this recipe you will need white chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, red candy melts, neon green food coloring, and some red heart sprinkles.

That’s all! Just five simple ingredients and you can create with festive holiday dessert to share at your parties, with cookie swaps, and more.

Kitchen essentials for tasty no bake recipes:

When you head into the kitchen to make some of these great recipes you’ll want to have the best tools on hand.

Of course mixing bowls, a mixerspatula, and some whisks should be on your list if you don’t have ones that you love. I also like to have a set of cooling racks so that my recipes can properly cool before they’re scarfed down by my family!

I like these casserole dishes from Pyrex which are great for no bake recipes and for all your favorite dinners, brownies, cakes, and more.

You can’t go wrong with some good sharp knives and a cutting board. They will always come in handy in the kitchen for recipes of any kind, even desserts!
