I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love fudge. It doesn’t matter what the occasion – or no occasion at all – a couple pieces go down nicely! I have the best recipe, it has never failed me yet and everyone always raves about it. I usually nod and smile and say it’s nothing, and it’s assumed that I’m being modest. But I’m not – it really is nothing!
For years I wondered how to make fudge, and stupidly assumed it would be a long drawn out process with thermometers and all sorts, but I was so wrong. This white chocolate fudge uses just three ingredients and is so easy to make. Seriously – no skill required what so ever. It’s the perfect fudge to make with kids, and with the mini eggs makes for a fun Easter treat.
My children aren’t know for their good attention spans, and so knowing we can knock this fudge recipe in under 30 minutes (and that’s including prep time) means it’s a great indoor activity for kids.
Three Ingredient Easter Fudge
- 550 grams White Chocolate Higher quality chocolate really shines here, cheap chocolate can leave the fudge grainy
- 60 grams Butter
- 1 tin Condensed Milk Or 397 grams
- 1 pinch Salt Optional
- 1 bag Mini Eggs
- Break up the chocolate and then pop it in a bowl with the butter and condensed milk
- All you need to do now is melt it! If you’re feeling brave you can do it in short bursts in the microwave. Personally, I prefer a little more control and so I put a pan of boiling water on the hob and place the bowl on top of it. This prevents the chocolate from burning.
- Keep stirring the mixture until it is smooth of glossy. Add the salt at this stage if you want to include it (it takes the edge off the sweetness slightly).
- While it is still warm, prod the mini eggs into the top of the fudge slightly.
- Place the dish into the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours to set – but overnight is best.
- Slice the fudge into whatever size suits you and serve!

Right now in particular, while things are a bit tense, treats and comforts like this are what is keeping us sane. I am glad that I can keep at least some of our families Easter traditions in tact.
If white chocolate isn’t your cup of tea then there are a few ways you can adapt this recipe to make it suit your own tastes.
The first, and most obvious way, is to replace the white chocolate with a milk chocolate. But for me personally – I love a milk and dark chocolate mix. It makes a rich a indulgent fudge which I adore.
You can also change the mini eggs if you don’t want to make this around Easter time, smarties or magic stars work well too. Or just leave them out all together. It gives a smooth, sweet fudge without the crunch of a sweet on top.
