Food historians (yes, that’s a job) have found recipes dating back to the 1880s!

Chocolate Walnut Fudge

This list of 20 mouth-watering fudge recipes puts a very modern spin on the traditional classic. 

There are some unique and wonderful flavor combos on this list.

From cookies and cream to rocky road, you’ll be dazzled by the delicious choices. 

I personally can’t wait to make butterbeer fudge, or salted caramel pretzel fudge, or toasted coconut fudge.

And if you want to get really adventurous, try a slice of lightly spiced sweet potato fudge. It’s not just dairy-free and vegan, it’s also surprisingly addictive!

Ever get the feeling that there are too many fudge flavors and too little time? 

Chocolate Fantasy Fudge

1. Fantasy Fudge

I’m no expert, but I’m guessing fantasy fudge got its name by being fantastically delicious.

This heavenly treat is a dense and gooey marshmallow fudge. It’s made with chocolate chips, marshmallow creme, and chopped walnuts.

One bite of this fudge and all your dreams will come true (if your dreams involve gobbling yummy candy).

2. Tiger Butter Fudge

Vegetarians and vegans can relax – there’s no tiger in this tiger butter fudge. 

But it does have gorgeous tiger stripes, made from thick swirls of white chocolate and peanut butter.

This soft and creamy fudge is delightfully nutty and rich.

Best of all, there are only three ingredients in this easy recipe.

It’s just peanut butter, chocolate, vanilla chips, and a whole lot of gooey goodness.

Rocky Road Fudge

3. Rocky Road Fudge

Just like rocky road ice cream, rocky road fudge is an irresistible mix of chewy, crunchy, yummy flavors.

It’s packed with soft chunks of chewy marshmallows and flavored with creamy peanut butter.

The basic recipe involves just three ingredients, but you can play around with this versatile candy. 

You might want to add graham crackers for more crunch or sprinkle in some M&Ms.

You could also get the kids involved and have them choose their own fudge flavor for a fun weekend project.

4. Bavarian Mint Fudge

If you’ve ever visited Bavaria, you know the region is overflowing with fudge shops. 

The popular treat is a big hit in the German state and, trust me, those guys know their fudge. 

This easy recipe for a Bavarian candy classic lets you skip the flight and get straight to the fudge.

It’s made with condensed milk, chocolate chips, and peppermint extract. 

You’ll simply stir everything together and chill until set. I wish everything in life was this easy.

Homemade Chocolate Fudge

5. Eagle Brand Fudge

This Eagle Brand fudge is a basic chocolate fudge made with Eagle Brand condensed milk.

It’s an incredibly easy recipe that’s perfect for newbies. The hardest part is waiting for the fudge to set!

Whether you’re a new fudge-maker or an experienced pro, you’ll love the creamy goodness of this rich treat.

6. Coffee Fudge

If you’re the type of organized, generous cook who makes fudge gifts for the holidays, I highly recommend this silky coffee fudge.

It’s a great festive present for the caffeine addict in your life.

Also, if you wrap it up and gift it in a nice mug, you’ll really get on Santa’s “nice” list.

7. Cookies and Cream Oreo Fudge

Take your next batch of fudge up a notch by adding in America’s favorite cookies.

This crazy delicious pairing is maybe the best thing to happen to fudge-making.

Crushed Oreos are blended with melted white chocolate and condensed milk before chilling out in the fridge.

These addictive treats will go fast, so make sure to set a few aside for snacking after the kids have gone to bed (parenting win).

8. Peppermint Fudge

There’s something about the sweet, sharp taste of peppermint that makes me think of Christmas.

This creamy holiday fudge is a festive treat you’ll want to make year-round.

It’s a thick and silky chocolate fudge generously decorated with peppermint chunks.

Homemade Caramel Fudge

9. Peanut Butter Fudge

This three-ingredient microwave fudge is for lazy days and rushed afternoons when you just need something sweet and easy.

It’s made with sugar, peanut butter, and butter. That’s all you’ll need to go from someone with no fudge to someone who’s devouring fudge.

10. Buckeye Fudge

This lovely layered treat has all the yummy taste of Buckeyes candy in fudge form! Kids, in particular, will flip out for this fun recipe.

The bottom layer is a creamy peanut butter blend. The topping is a thick slab of chocolate. I’m in heaven just thinking about it. 

Fudge Brownies with Pecan Nuts

11. Nestle Fudge

This fun fudge uses Nestle evaporated milk instead of condensed milk for fudge that’s just as creamy but not as sweet.

Instead, you’ll get your sweet fix from chocolate chips and melted mini-marshmallows.

If you’re serving them to guests, decorate with chopped pecans and a drizzle of caramel syrup to wow the crowd.

12. Salted Pretzel Caramel Fudge

Classic caramel fudge is great, but salted pretzel caramel fudge is even greater. 

These gorgeous bites look as good as they taste.

There’s a chunky chocolate base layer topped with gooey caramel sauce and a sprinkling of salted pretzel pieces. Need I say more?

Salty and sweet, this irresistible fudge is a showstopper. 

13. Toasted Coconut Fudge

Chocolate meets coconut in this unique recipe, and it’s a fudge love story.

Toasting the coconut beforehand brings out all its tropical, fruity flavor.

Sprinkle that toasted coconut over dark, silky chocolate fudge, and you’ll have a sinfully delicious treat.

It’s also wickedly easy to make. Dangerously easy, in fact.

You’ll need an impressive level of self-control to stop yourself making and eating these 7 days a week.

14. Butterfinger Fudge

This recipe is a classic vanilla fudge, filled with hearty chunks of Butterfinger candy.

It’s delightfully chewy and crunchy, not to mention silky, soft, and sweet. 

Kids and adults will love this festive white candy, so make extras and prepare to fight for the last piece!

15. Root Beer Float Fudge

I love food bloggers. They’re constantly pushing the envelope and coming up with inventive versions of candy classics.

This incredible fudge is a mouth-watering mash-up of a root beer float and root beer candies. 

It’s made with vanilla, chocolate, marshmallow cream, and root beer concentrate.

There’s so much flavor in this fudge, it’s a trip for your tastebuds!

16. Cookie Monster Fudge

If you have a Cookie Monster fan in the house they’ll go crazy for this fun fudge.

It definitely looks the part, as it’s bright blue fudge decorated with candy eyes and cookie mouths.

I absolutely love making this fudge for kids’ parties.

Little guests light up when they see the monster faces and, after just one bite, they’ll beg for more!

17. Sweet Potato Chocolate Chipotle Fudge

You learn something every day. And today I learned that it’s possible to make incredibly delicious fudge from a root vegetable.

You’ll have to try this recipe to fully appreciate its amazing ingenuity. 

Vegan and dairy-free, this fudge is made with pureed sweet potato and rich, dark chocolate. 

Chipotle chili, cinnamon, and red pepper flakes add a fiery punch that perfectly complements the chocolatey sweetness.

18. Candy Corn Fudge

Ditch the tricks and enjoy plenty of treats this Halloween with this cute candy corn recipe.

It’s fudge, but not as you know it. Yellow, orange, and white stripes make it look exactly like candy corn, with all the flavor of creamy vanilla fudge.

Pass these around on Halloween night, and you’ll enjoy watching tiny monsters gobble them up. 

19. Butterbeer Fudge

You don’t need to be a Harry Potter fan to appreciate this dreamy butterbeer fudge.

This copycat recipe, modeled on the Universal Studios version, brings all the magic of wizard-approved fudge right to your kitchen.

There’s a hint of rum (but no actual booze!) in this addictive treat. Kids and adults alike will be spellbound by its creamy butterscotch taste!

20. Pink Lemonade Fudge

I had no idea that fudge could be so pretty. These bright, pastel pink slabs are the perfect party finger food.

I’m keeping these for Valentine’s Day, but they’ll also be great for Mother’s Day or baby showers.

Flavored with pink lemonade and white chocolate, they’re light and sweet without being overpowering. 

Make this special snack for your next special occasion, and there’ll be lots of compliments for the cook!
