Christmas Tree Fudge Recipe

My daughter is on a no-cook fudge kick!

With only two main ingredients, no cook fudge is super easy for kids to learn how to make independently – and she’s having so much fun coming up with unique twists for our basic recipe.

Today’s version swaps out chocolate chips or chocolate wafers for green candy melts, giving our Christmas tree fudge a bright, green hue that really sets off those ornament-inspired sprinkles.

The sprinkles are just a homemade mix – so no need to go shell out $10 for one of those fancy sprinkle blends. We had these rainbow confetti sprinkles, these rainbow nonpareils and silver dragees already on hand, so we just mixed a couple tablespoons of each for our own homemade sprinkle blend.

As for the taste? Because we used candy melts this fudge is very sweet – which the kids loved! The fudge texture is perfect, too – it’s toothsome enough to sink your teeth into but melts in your mouth immediately. 

Can this fudge be made on the stove? Yes, simply combine the chocolate wafers or candy melts and sweetened condensed milk in a saucepan over low heat, stirring until chocolate is completely melted. Pour into your baking dish and press on the Andes mints.

Can this fudge be frozen? This fudge will last at room temperature for up to two weeks, if kept in an airtight container. Refrigerating will allow it to last up to a month.

However, if are planning way ahead of time, you can freeze this fudge for up to four months, but note that the texture will change slightly. If you do need to freeze it, try to freeze it before cutting into servings (to prevent the fudge from drying out) and wrap in wax paper before placing in an airtight zip-top bag.

How to Make No-Cook Christmas Fudge

Place half of the candy sprinkles in the cavities of a Christmas tree silicone candy mold (or ice cube tray). Set aside.

Place the candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 25 seconds. Stir well and reheat as needed until completely melted.

Stir the sweetened condensed milk into the melted candy melts. More sweetened condensed milk will result in a softer texture.

Spoon the candy melt mixture into the silicone tray. Add more sprinkles on top of the wet candy melts.

Allow to set at room temperature, about 1 hour, before popping out of the tray.

Makes 10.
