#1 Super Easy See’s Fudge Recipe

Hand picking up a piece of See's Fudge.


This easy chocolate fudge recipe is the easiest, most foolproof recipe ever. It comes out smooth every time, never grainy. I have tried other recipes that take much longer to prepare and trust me, it is so unnecessary. You really don’t need more than 15 minutes for perfect fudge. Ingredients include semi-sweet chocolate chips, marshmallow cream, evaporated milk. Make it with or without nuts.

Rocky road fudge is a staple in our house! We love to make this as a family during the holiday season. Fluffy mini marshmallows surrounded by rich, sweet chocolate with just the right amount of walnut crunch. This homemade fudge recipe is an old favorite family recipe that will be carried on through generations. Swap the walnuts out for cranberries and pecans to make this a lovely Christmas fudge.

Have you ever notice there are so many great things to pair with chocolate? Peanut butter. Caramel. Vanilla. And, of course, MINT. This mint chocolate fudge is a great Christmas fudge recipe, or St. Patrick’s day treat because of the great green color. The mixture of mild mint flavor with rich milk chocolate is a delicious treat that is absolutely irresistible. Use peppermint extract and crush some candy canes on top for a delightful holiday fudge.

Questions About Fudge

What is the best way to store fudge?

If fudge will be eaten within a week or two, store it at room temperature in an airtight container in a cool and dry place. Fudge has the creamiest texture at room temperature.

If you want the fudge to keep for 2-3 weeks, it is best kept in the refrigerator in an airtight container with wax paper or parchment paper between the layers of fudge pieces.

Can I freeze fudge?

Yes, most fudge can be frozen. All of the fudge recipes here can be frozen with the exception of our German Chocolate Fudge. Wrap the fudge tightly in plastic wrap, then in aluminum foil before placing it in the freezer. You can also freeze it in a freezer-safe airtight container.

How do I thaw frozen fudge?

It’s best to thaw frozen fudge in the refrigerator. Keep it wrapped or in the airtight container it was frozen in, and keep it in the fridge until ready to eat.

What are the ingredients of fudge?

The base ingredients of most fudge recipes are sugar, butter, a form of chocolate or other flavor, sweetened condensed milk or evaporated milk, and marshmallows or marshmallow cream (fluff).
