- A 9×9 or 8×8 Square Pan – Make sure the pan is not too large or the fudge will be super thin and not very fudgey.

How to Make Fudge
Fudge is one of my favorite treats to make during the holiday season. This red and green fudge recipe is super simple and is always a hit with both kiddos and grown-ups. Since we live far from our family and travel during the holidays, I love making simple, delicious, and portable snacks to share. This sugar cookie fudge fits the bill and is super festive and pretty as an added bonus.
- Add the butter to the medium saucepan and let it melt over low heat.
- Next, add the white chocolate chips and stir—making sure the chocolate doesn’t stick to the bottom and burn.
- Once the chocolate chips are melted, add the sweetened condensed milk and stir until smooth.
- Add the sugar cookie mix and stir until well incorporated. The fudge will be thick but stir-able and smooth.
- Remove from heat and stir in your holiday sprinkles of choice.
- Pour the fudge into a parchment paper-lined baking pan and make sure it is distributed evenly.
- Add several drops of food coloring to the top of the fudge and swirl it into the middle using a spoon. Make sure not to swirl too many colors or the fudge will turn a muddy color. Also, you can add additional sprinkles to the top of the sugar cookie fudge and lightly press them in.
- Cover the Christmas fudge and let chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
- When ready to eat, slice into pieces and serve.

With the holidays almost here, I am all about baking and making treats with my son. He isn’t a big cake or cookie fan (so strange), but he is a massive fudge fan!
