I whipped up a quick no-cook fudge made out of three simple ingredients – vanilla frosting, white chocolate chips, and mini peanut butter crackers.

The end result is a rich and sweet, mouth melting fudge with a lightly sandy/powdery quality that reminds me of fudge I’ve had in the past. The peanut butter crackers add a salty contrast to the sweet fudge.

Although I used storebought frosting, I imagine you could amp it up by using homemade frosting. I also think the recipe could be infinitely modified by either swapping out the flavors of the frosting, the chocolate, or the crunchy filling.

Examples

  • Vanilla frosting + white chocolate + couple drops of peppermint oil + Oreos = Grasshopper fudge
  • Cream cheese frosting + milk chocolate + graham crackers = Chocolate cheesecake fudge
  • Vanilla frosting + white chocolate + matcha powder + Oreos = matcha Oreo fudge

Since the ingredients are so few, the quality of each will really impact the outcome of the fudge – so choose your ingredients wisely.

Pro tip: If you have trouble smoothing out the top of your fudge, lay a sheet of cling wrap over it and flatten it with your hands like so. Mess-free and easy-peasy!
