This post is sponsored by Dixie Crystals as part of #HalloweenTreatsWeek. I received product but the recipe and comments expressed here are my own.
Fudge is such a yummy sweet treat. I love the creamy, sugary, squares that I eat every holiday season.
I don’t know why, but I really only eat fudge during the holidays. I mean, fudge is delicious all year round and is so easy to make.
A lot of fudge recipes, the easy microwave versions use just two ingredients, sweetened condensed milk and chocolate.
I wanted to make my fudge the old fashioned way! This recipe doesn’t use sweetened condensed milk which I love. This is an old fashioned or traditional fudge recipe that you boil. It may have a few more steps, but it is totally worth it in the end.
To show you that fudge isn’t just for Christmas, I made a Halloween fudge recipe with marshmallow fluff that is not only festive but so cute with the adorable witch sprinkles I found!

Marshmallow Fluff Fudge Ingredients
- Evaporated milk
- Vanilla extract
- Marshmallow fluff
- White chocolate chips
Can I use marshmallows instead of marshmallow fluff for fudge?
Yes, you can. Switch out the 7oz of fluff for a 10oz package of marshmallows.
Can I use margarine instead of butter for fudge?
It’s not a good idea. Margarine contains a lot of water which messes up the chemistry of the fudge and it might not set up as it should. I would always use a high quality butter.
What does marshmallow fluff do?
When added to fudge, it makes it smooth and creamy. No wonder it’s called Fantasy Fudge!
How to make marshmallow cream fudge
STEP ONE: In a large bowl, combine the white chocolate and marshmallow cream. Butter the 9×13 dish.
STEP TWO: In a sauce pan (at least 4 quarts) combine the butter, evaporated milk, and sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat stirring constantly. Boil for 5 minutes or until the temperature reaches 235F.
STEP THREE: Pour the boiled sugar mixture over the fluff and chocolate. Stir to melt and combine. Pour in the vanilla and green food coloring.
STEP FOUR: Pour into a 9×13 prepared pan. Decorate with witch or spooky sprinkles and candies. Cool and slice into 1 inch squares.
Why is my fudge crumbly?
Crumbly or dry fudge comes from overcooking or over heating the sugar when boiling it. Fudge is made by forming tiny sugar crystals that stick together. If the sugar crystalizes too quickly it forms large crystals which gives the fudge a crumbly texture.
Can you freeze fudge?
You can freeze your white fudge in wrapped in plastic wrap and aluminum foil. Store in a an air tight container for up to 6 months in the freezer.
How long does fudge last?
Your old fashioned fudge will last up to 2 weeks at room temperature or up to 1 month in the refrigerator. Just be sure to keep it in an air-tight container so it doesn’t dry out.

Tips to make white chocolate fudge
- when cutting into squares, use a plastic knife. The fudge doesn’t stick to it as bad as a metal one making smoother cuts.
- use a candy thermometer or digital thermometer to make sure the temperature is correct.
- make sure and use a 4 quart or larger pot when boiling the sugar mixture. It bubbles and pops and you don’t want to get burned.
