How far in advance can I make fudge?
Fudge is a great make-ahead recipe because it can be stored so easily for quite some time. Store the fudge in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two weeks. Or store it in the fridge, also in an airtight container, for up to one month.
Can I use evaporated milk instead of condensed milk for fudge?
Unfortunately, you cannot substitute evaporated milk for sweetened condensed milk in this fudge recipe. They are two different products completely, and the fudge will not set properly with evaporated milk.
Is white fudge the same as white chocolate?
No, white fudge and white chocolate are not the same. White fudge is made by using white chocolate and other ingredients to melt into fudge.
How to make this easy Valentine’s Day Fudge recipe:
STEP ONE: First, line a 9×9-inch baking dish with parchment paper. Lightly spray it with non-stick cooking spray.
STEP TWO: Next, using a medium-sized double boiler saucepan, add the white chocolate chips, sugar cookie mix, sweetened condensed milk, and butter. Heat this on medium heat, stirring continually, until it is melted and smooth.
STEP THREE: Then, remove the double boiler from the heat. Mix in the vanilla and half of the holiday sprinkles.
STEP FOUR: Pour the fudge into the baking dish and smooth it out. Press the remaining sprinkles into the fudge’s top, then place the dish in the fridge for 2-3 hours.
STEP FIVE: Finally, remove the fudge from the dish, slice into pieces, and drizzle melted almond bark over the pieces.
