Easy 4-ingredient Easter Fudge
This easy 4-ingredient Easter Fudge is a fun and festive treat everyone will love. Its rich chocolate-y fudge is filled with soft marshmallows and candy-coated mini chocolate eggs. It’s a scrumptious way to welcome Spring and only takes 4 ingredients and 5 minutes to make (minus chilling time, of course).
This easy Easter fudge is so quick and easy. It’s an “eggs”ellent spring treat! Guys… I just had to say it, as cheesy as it was. The opportunity was there. Haha.
The last couple weeks have been long ones for us. Between our 2-year-old having pneumonia and being on oxygen and our 9-month-old fighting RSV, it’s been a little tough. When everyone started feeling better this week, we found a few minutes to make and enjoy this quick sweet treat. The girls loved this Easter fudge because of it fun colors, cute mini eggs, and chocolate-helper hands. 😉
This Easter fudge is a great treat to make when you need a quick fix. It whips up in about 5 minutes and can set within 20-30 minutes if placed in the freezer instead of the fridge. It’s a chocolate lover’s Easter dream and a fun recipe to make with the kids. What else do we need?
You may already have most of the ingredients. If not, next time you’re at the store, pick them up to have ready and on hand. This recipe is fantastic because the ingredients can be stored in the pantry. They can be waiting and ready for when you are in a pinch and need a quick dessert, whether it’s for dinner or a little chocolate quick fix. No judgment here! Here’s what you’ll need:
Pretty simple, right? This fudge is one of those super easy treats that are so fast to make yet taste delicious. You might want to pick up supplies for two batches because they ‘re gonna go quickly. 😉
Here’s a little video on how I made this Easter fudge. 🙂
So, here’s the how-to. In a microwave safe bowl (I love using my pyrex glass bowls for this), I poured the chocolate chips in the bottom then poured the sweetened condensed milk over the top. I popped the chocolate milk mixture into the microwave for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes until it was hot and the chocolate began melting. I stirred the chocolate milk mixture until the chocolate chips were completely melted.
Next, I added the vanilla which is optional. I think the vanilla gives this fudge a warm homemade flavor. Once the vanilla was mixed in, I added the marshmallows. I used the multicolored marshmallows to give this Easter fudge a few more pops of pastel color. My kids loved that! If you prefer the plain white marshmallows, you could totally use them instead.
I lined an 8×8-inch pan with waxed paper (you could also use parchment paper) then poured about half the mini chocolate eggs in the bottom. Next, I poured the fudge into the pan and spread it until it was smooth. I then topped the fudge with the remaining mini chocolate eggs. It was done. So simple, right?
Once it was completed, I popped it into the fridge to chill out. It took about 45 minutes to set. If you’re in a hurry, you could try sliding the warm fudge into the freezer for 20-30 minutes to speed up the cooling process.
This is what mine looked like after it had cooled unwrapped it. Doesn’t it look yummy?
I took a long sharp knife and cut the Easter fudge into long strips then into squares. My husband, who is very analytical and a little critical, teased me for my uneven cutting. I just told him there were some regular-sized pieces, diet-sized pieces, and super-sized pieces. Haha! If you cut the 8×8-inch fudge into 6 strips then each strip into 6 pieces, you will end up with 36 pieces of Easter fudge a little over a 1-inch by 1-inch a piece.
Once cut we enjoyed them… ALL! So not healthy, but soooo delicious (we did share a few with friends 😉 ). If you have a little more self-control than we did, you can store this fudge in an airtight container on the counter or in the fridge.
That’s it my friends. If you’re a fudge lover or chocolate lover for that matter, this Easter fudge is a great recipe to have in your recipe box. It’s quick, easy and tastes so yummy!
