Ingredients For Homemade Chocolate Fudge
How To Make Chocolate Fudge
- Start by lining your 8×8 pan with parchment paper.
- In a pan, you will add your butter, chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk until fully melted.
- Once it is well-mixed you will remove from heat, stir in your vanilla.
- Pour into your baking pan and then top with your candy-coated Easter eggs.
A delicious fudge that is crazy easy fudge that is going to win over anyone after one bite.
How Long Does It Take For Fudge To Harden Up
It will take around 3-4 hours for your homemade fudge to firm up and harden. You can speed up the process by placing it in the fridge.
You want to make sure you do not overmix the fudge, as it can harden the fudge too much. Mix until it just begins getting harder to stir.

- 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 30-35 Easter Candy Eggs
- 10 oz Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Start by lining an 8x8 pan with parchment paper. Make sure the parchment paper hangs over the side.
- Then in a double boiler you will mix your chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and butter. Cook on medium heat until your mixture is melted. Stir constantly.
- Once the ingredients are fully mixed, remove from the heat and pour in the vanilla extract, and mix in quickly.
- Pour your Easter fudge into a lined pan and spread it evenly. I used a rubber spatula to smooth over the chocolate fudge.
- Top the fudge with your candy eggs, and then place the chocolate fudge in the fridge. Allow up to two hours.
- Once your chocolate Easter Egg fudge hardens you will use a sharp knife and slice it into small fudge squares.
Feel free to add any other candy toppings to your homemade chocolate fudge.
You can use milk chocolate, semi-sweet, etc for the chocolate chips.
If you own a double boiler you can melt the chocolate that way, or use the microwave.
Evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk are not the same, and can't be interchanged.
I used the candy-coated Cadbury eggs, but you can use another type of egg-shaped candy for the recipe.
