I made this today for christmas. It was super easy, the colors were deep green and true red. We used green and red gel food colors. The kids had a blast adding the color and then putting it in pan..Tastes great! With just 10 minutes of prep, some cooling time in your fridge and three ingredients, this sweet-as-can-be recipe will deliver holiday fun. It’s the easiest (and tastiest!) way to spread joy during the hectic holiday season.
Easy Christmas Swirl Fudge
- 1 bag (12 oz) white vanilla baking chips (2 cups)
- 1 container vanilla frosting
- Green and red gel food colors
Line 8-inch square pan with foil, leaving foil overhanging at 2 opposite sides of pan; spray foil with cooking spray.
In large microwavable bowl, microwave white chips uncovered on High 1 minute. Spoon frosting over chips. Microwave on High 30 seconds; stir. If necessary, continue to microwave in 15-second increments until mixture can be stirred smooth.
Place 3/4 cup fudge mixture into each of 2 small bowls, leaving remaining untinted fudge mixture in bowl. Tint 1 bowl green and 1 bowl red by stirring in each food color to desired color.
Drop heaping tablespoons of green, red and white fudge mixture in bottom of pan to create random pattern. Pull table knife through layers for marbled design. Refrigerate uncovered until set, about 1 hour.
Remove from pan by lifting foil; peel foil away. Cut into 8 rows by 8 rows. Store covered in refrigerator.
It’s important to work quickly when assembling this fudge because it sets up quickly. For best results, make sure you’ve got each color tinted to your liking and then go for it! If the fudge starts to harden before you’re done working, pop it back in the microwave for a few seconds.
For perfect marbling, here’s what to do: First, you’ll want to do this when the fudge is still warm and a bit of fluid, see above tip. Second, use a knife or bamboo skewer. Third, get in there! Make looping or curlicue patterns with your tool, until you are satisfied with the effect.
Love the look of this fudge? You can customize the colors to match any season. Pink, purple and white would be a cute variation for Valentine’s Day. Why not go for a pastel trio at Easter? Use your imagination and have fun with this playful fudge recipe.
