White Chocolate Fudge Recipe
"So simple to make and delicious too!"
My white chocolate fudge recipe is so simple to make, smooth and of course delicious - almost addictive.
It is made quickly in the microwave. And like all my recipes I give you the base recipe for fudge then suggest variations which mean you can make fudge for any occasion.
In this recipe for fudge I use my favourite eating white chocolate so use what ever chocolate you like to eat straight from the block for best results.
White chocolate is softer than dark or milk chocolate to eat and this fudge recipe is slightly softer than my other chocolate fudge recipes. If you think you may want the fudge a little firmer especially if it is a hot summers day then increase the white chocolate to 600g.

Easy White Chocolate Fudge Recipe
Grease and line with non-stick baking paper either a 20cm x 20cm (8” x 8”) cake pan or a 25cm x 10cm (10” x 4”) bar tin.
Make sure you take the paper up above the top of the bar tin – this will help you pull it out of the bar tin when the chocolate fudge has set.
500g white chocolate, chopped
1 can of condensed milk – approximately 400g
30g unsalted butter, chopped
- Place all the ingredients in a medium sized microwave safe bowl.
- Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Remove and stir well.
- Return and microwave for 30 seconds. Remove and stir well.
- Return and microwave for 30 seconds. Remove and stir well until completely blended.
- This is the point at which you add any nuts or flavourings. Keep reading for suggestions.
- Quickly transfer the white chocolate fudge to your cake pan that has been lined with baking paper. Press down to give a level top.
- Set in the fridge for two hours.
- Remove and slice as you like. The fudge does need to be kept in cool conditions.
If you want to make fudge with nuts then all you need to do is stir through 1 cup of chopped nuts just before pressing into the cake pan. You can also press extra chopped nuts into the top of the fudge before placing into the fridge – this looks great and lets everyone instantly know what type of chocolate fudge they are about to enjoy.
Macadamias are one of the most popular combinations. Almond and pistachios also work well.

If you make the fudge in the 20cm x 20cm cake pan this makes the perfect thickness for cutting out shapes. You could press out chocolate fudge hearts for your valentine and you then get to eat all the left-over bits!
