Sugar cookie fudge is a holiday sweet that is good enough any elf would eat. Super adorable in Christmas colored sprinkles and easy to make for gifting. Put this on your holiday baking list.
All About The Sprinkles
With just four ingredients this is a budget friendly way to make sweet fudge gifts to give your family and friends at the holidays. Usually you can find Christmas sprinkles on sale. If you cannot then use regular sprinkles in red and green.
I made these some months before Christmas to shoot here for the blog. I used red, green, and gold star sprinkles I had on hand from other projects. These could also be purple, blue, and pink for sugar plum style!
First tip is to add the white chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk at the same time. I find doing it separate the chocolate can burn. Together is the way to go.
Switching to Chocolate Chips
Heat them on a low heat. The white chocolate chips will melt slowly. You want them low and slow so no burning. You may also use chocolate chips but you want bright colored sprinkles and a chocolate cookie mix.
Mix in the dry cookie dough mix. I use Pillsbury and buy the larger bag so I have some to keep on hand. Use any dry cookie mix. Stir in the sprinkles of choice.
Now layer the fudge into a dish 8×8 or 9×9. The pan size depends on how tall or deep you want the fudge to be. You can also use a small casserole dish as well.
Top with sprinkles and pop in the freezer. I like to place in the freezer until solid. Then pull the sugar cookie fudge out of the freeze and then cut. I usually let it set a few minutes before cutting.
Store the fudge in a airtight container in the freezer. I keep it frozen then bring it to temperature in the fridge two days before serving. The fudge just serves better nice and cold.
If you plan to set it out for guests it will stay nice and cold. If gifting this fudge can last in the freezer for a few weeks. Check out some other great gifting desserts below.
