I use the white chocolate layer just to stick the marshmallows on top. Some readers have wanted a thicker layer of white chocolate. If you prefer a thick white layer feel free to increase the white chocolate layer ingredients to fit your preference.

    It’s a great recipe! Can you freeze it and how long does it last? Also is there a substitute for the condensed milk?

    Thanks

      Thanks Carly! I know some folks freeze fudge but I personally do not like the consistency of fudge after it has been thawed out. So I never freeze it. As far a a sub for condensed milk, that would be an entirely different fudge recipe. Their are many recipes that do not use sweetened condensed milk if you do a google search or look on pinterest 🙂

      I eat my batches of fudge for about a week. After that they tend to get stale.

      I always eat my fudge within a week at most. After that it tends to get stale tasting.

      Hi Jackie! Yes, you can find these at most grocery stores in the marshmallow or hot cocoa section. Enjoy!

    Could I mix this fudge into a mug of hot milk and expect a hot chocolate drink? Or would that not work? It’s probably to dense to melt in milk.

    Most of the white chocolate chips I have tried taste really “off”. The brand I recommend (& so does America’s test kitchen) is Guittard brand Choc-au-Lait chips. They have a lovely creamy vanilla flavor & no odd chemical notes. I will be using it to try out your recipe which sounds wonderful! Thanks!

      Yes, the double boiler method should work fine. I can’t say for how long because I do not use that method. Enjoy!

    Hi, could I use milk chocolate instead of dark, I have some in the fridge to use up. Or does it need dark to take away the richness of the white?

      The milk chocolate should work fine. I love a good milk chocolate fudge 🙂

    How do you store this? Just wrap in wax paper/foil on the counter? Or can it just sit out if it’s for a day? I don’t want it to dry out for tomorrow’s party:)

    Reply

    • HOT CHOCOLATE FUDGE RECIPE!!! + WonkyWonderful (32)Nicole Harris says

      I cover it with plastic wrap to keep it from drying out. You can leave it on your counter or in the refrigerator. If you do refrigerate it just take it out 1-2 hours before the party to soften. Enjoy!

    If I want to double this recipe what size pan should I use

    Reply

    • HOT CHOCOLATE FUDGE RECIPE!!! + WonkyWonderful (34)Nicole Harris says

      You can use a 9×13 pan and the fudge will have thicker layers. If you have a dish larger than 9×13 that will work. Or, obviously two 9×9 pans 🙂

    Looking forward to trying this! Has anyone tried using parchment paper instead of foil? I’m wondering if it would be easier to peel off.

    Reply

    • HOT CHOCOLATE FUDGE RECIPE!!! + WonkyWonderful (36)Nicole Harris says

      I’m not sure. I never have much luck with parchment paper in general (probably operator error, lol!) Let me know if you try 🙂

  15. HOT CHOCOLATE FUDGE RECIPE!!! + WonkyWonderful (37)Darlene says

    Probably going to taste good but there’s no way that was enough white choc mix to cover the dark layer! I lost an inch all the way around the pan!

    Reply

    • HOT CHOCOLATE FUDGE RECIPE!!! + WonkyWonderful (38)Nicole Harris says

      Yes, the white chocolate is really just for sticking the mallows to the fudge. If you prefer a complete white chocolate layer you can definitely double the amount. Happy Holidays 🙂

    Thanks so much for this yummy recipe! I made it for Christmas and it was a big hit with the family. I made it using milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate chips (as mentioned in the comments), since my family doesn’t care for dark and it came out great.
    For the pan I used my silicon square pan so no prep was required, I just poured the chocolate directly in it, put it in the fridge and peeled the pan away once it cooled. If you haven’t used silicon pans before I highly recommend them for fudge and butterscotch, (but I still like metal pans for oven cake/bread baking).

    You are going to have someone set their home on fire with this recipe. Foil should NEVER be used in a microwave.

    Reply

    • HOT CHOCOLATE FUDGE RECIPE!!! + WonkyWonderful (42)Nicole Harris says

      That’s why the chocolate is microwaved in Microwave Safe Bowls then transferred to the foil lined pan once melted. The foil never goes into the microwave. (per the instructions)

    How long does this take to make?

    Reply

    • HOT CHOCOLATE FUDGE RECIPE!!! + WonkyWonderful (44)Nicole Harris says

      It takes about 10 minutes to make. But, it needs to set in the refrigerator for 6 hours. You could probably get away with 4 hours in a pinch.

    I’m having trouble finding the mallow bites in my area. Have you tried just using mini marshmallows, or chopping mini marahmallows?

      You can use those 🙂

    I used PB chips and I have to say it really takes a lot of finesse to spread them on top of the chocolate. I think the next time I will let the chocolate set for several hours and then spread the PB chips on top.

  21. HOT CHOCOLATE FUDGE RECIPE!!! + WonkyWonderful (48)Ellen says

    Both my dark chocolate and white chocolate were extremely thick. I pressed it down and when I put the marshmallows on they were not going in but sitting on top. I put it in the fridge and hopefully it will take but I don’t think so. I followed the recipe exactly. Is this normal? Looks great I hope it works!!

      I hope it worked out. Yes, spreading the layer on top does take some finesse.
