When it comes to making no cook fudge recipes we’ve got things covered over here. I’ve shared flavors of fudge recipes from fruity and light like key lime pie to indulgent and salty sweet with this maple bacon fudge!

I like making no cook fudge recipes because there’s no cooking or baking. It’s really easy to make fudge this way and it also means that I don’t have to worry about burning the dairy ingredients.

Before you start making fudge, get yourself the best gear! Here are my must have items for making homemade fudge recipes.

This is the perfect fudge pan, it’s 8×8 which means you can cut everything into 16 pieces and it’s light enough that even really heavy fudge recipes aren’t unmanageable in this size pan!

Making fudge and cutting fudge is much much easier if the pan is lined with parchment paper! It’s great to have on hand for other recipes too!

These mixing bowls are grippy on the bottom which means you can stir up your fudge ingredients without worry about the bowl sliding away from you! I also use these spatulas for making my fudge!

You can’t go wrong with some good sharp knives for cutting your fudge. After it’s chilled it will pull out of the pan easily with the edges of the parchment paper and then you can use a sharp knife to get nice, even, square pieces!

If you want to share your fudge with others these boxes are excellent for giving your tasty treats away in style!
