This Ooey Gooey Fudge is a fun little sweet treat for all of your celebrations. It uses basic ingredients and kitchen equipment, so it’s easy to make, and a great activity to involve the kids!
Just like this Pumpkin Carrot Cake, these little treats are perfect for your dessert table or your next holiday celebration. Another great thing about this fudge is that it can be designed to go with any festive holiday.
This recipe uses Cadbury Creme eggs, but if you have another favorite candy, you can substitute the candy on top with whatever you’d like.
What you need:
- 3 large Milk Chocolate candy bars
- 1 can Condensed Milk
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 bottle red gel food coloring
- 4 Cadbury Creme Eggs
First, you need to prepare the Cadbury Creme eggs. Unwrap them and, using a knife, split them in half – try to keep them intact! If you find that they are a little runny, place them in the freezer until the inside hardens up a tad.
Take a small saucepan, add an inch of water and put it over high heat. Add a bowl, making sure the bottom doesn’t touch the water and use it to melt the chocolate.
While you wait for the chocolate to melt, line the baking tray with butter and baking parchment. This will make it a lot easier to get the fudge out of the tray.
In a separate, larger bowl, mix the condensed milk and powdered sugar together. Then slowly add the chocolate. Make sure all of the condensed milk is mixed in, otherwise, it won’t set and it will be far too gooey!
Before the mixture begins to set, pour it into the lined tray. Use a spoon or spatula to make sure the mixture is even across the tray.
We love this 11×7 in. brownie tray from Wilton!
Grab the Cadbury Creme eggs and place them open side down into the Ooey Gooey Fudge and press them down slightly.
Mix together some powdered sugar, food gel coloring, and water so the consistency is thin, but not watery. You want it to slowly run off the spoon.
Tip: You can use different food gel coloring depending on the holiday or reason you’re making it for. This was just done with red for Halloween and Christmas.
Take a spoonful of icing and flick it over the fudge. You can add as much or as little as you like. The kids will have fun with this!
If you’re looking for something prettier, you can create your own designs as you put the color on the chocolate.
Now the difficult part – waiting for it to set! This needs to be left overnight so you can enjoy it at its best.
Once the fudge has set, you can cut and serve. It’s as easy as that!
