Easy Easter Fudge
This easy Easter fudge has just 3 main ingredients and is topped with Candy-coated Easter Eggs and mini marshmallows. A fun Easter treat to prepare and eat.
I like having a range of Easter Baking Ideas up my sleeve for the Easter Holidays. I love preparing fresh hot cross buns from scratch and eating them warm with melted butter. I love a homage to bunnies with a great carrot cake recipe, topped with cream cheese frosting of course. But given the chocolate focus of Easter, I can’t go past a chocolate Easter fudge for treats.
This Easter Fudge recipe is based on the Quick and Easy Chocolate Fudge. You only need three main ingredients: butter, condensed milk, and white chocolate. Just melt them together, add your Easter goodies, and let it set in the fridge! Can’t get easier than that.
To make my Easter Egg fudge a little fancier, I tinted the fudge mixture three different pastel colours and swirled them together in the pan. The bright eggs you see pictured are my favourites: the crispy M&M Easter eggs. Partly because they’re fabulous and bright, and partly because I’m tired of seeing those pale Cadbury candy eggs in a million sponsored posts at this time of year. (PS. This is not a sponsored post for anyone either).
I just honestly love the beautiful bright colours and find that their crispy insides make them a lighter alternative to solid chocolate eggs.
For a chewy texture I also added some pink and white mini marshmallows.
You will need about 4 hours of chilling time up your sleeve if you’re making these for an event, so keep that in mind. You could also customise these to your tastes, using any Easter eggs and lollies of your choice. If you’re not a white chocolate fan, just swap in milk and/or dark chocolate, but note that the colour-effect won’t work.
If you want to involve kids in the kitchen and introduce them to baking, get them to decorate the fudge. It’s loads of fun!
