INGREDIENTS YOU’LL NEED TO MAKE THIS EASY EASTER FUDGE:
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 you need to have an awesome Easter treat?
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:
- Chocolate (milk, semi-sweet or dark, whichever you prefer)
- Sweetened condensed milk (make sure you have the right kind of milk. This is different than evaporated milk or regular cows milk.)
- Mini marshmallows (I love the marshmallows because it gives this fudge a fun color. If you don’t like marshmallows you don’t have to include them.)
- Cadbury mini eggs
- Vanilla (not required. Vanilla can give this fudge an added homemade richness)
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. 😉
HOW DO YOU MAKE THIS EASY EASTER FUDGE:
This fudge is so easy! This is how to make it. In a microwave safe bowl (I love using my pyrex glass bowls for this), pour the chocolate chips in the bottom then pour the sweetened condensed milk over the top. Pop the chocolate milk mixture into the microwave for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes until the mixture is hot and the chocolate began melt. Stir the chocolate milk mixture until the chocolate chips are completely melted. The chocolate should be smooth.
Next, add the vanilla if you’d like. This ingredient is optional. I think the vanilla gives this fudge a warm homemade flavor. Once the vanilla is mixed in, add 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 can use them instead or omit altogether.
Line 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, pour the fudge into the pan and spread evenly until it’s smooth. Then top the fudge with the remaining mini chocolate eggs. So simple, right?
Once it’s complete, pop 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 and I unwrapped it. Doesn’t it look yummy?
HOW DO I CUT THIS FUDGE AND HOW MANY PIECES DOES IT MAKE?
For easier cutting, use a long sharp knife. One that will span the entire fudge. To get a smooth cut, clean or wipe the knife after each use. 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 fudge a little over a 1-inch by 1-inch each. They end up being a two to three-biter. I think that’s a perfect size. 🙂
Once cut we enjoyed them… ALL! Soooo delicious! We ate almost all this batch ourselves but if you like to share, this is a great Easter treat to share with friends and neighbors or add to a chocolate Easter treat platter. 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, chocolate lover, or Cadbury 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!
