What Is White Chocolate Almond Fudge?
It’s a super simple homemade recipe using only 4 ingredients. The fudge itself is mainly made from white chocolate and condensed coconut milk giving you an ultra-rich and creamy texture that also packs a lot of flavor in every square.
Toasting the almonds and placing them on top just makes this that much more of an indulgently sweet and we are totally here for that! You’re going to love this simple fudge recipe.
Ingredients you’ll need for Fudge Recipe:
- Coconut milk– You will need one can of condensed coconut milk.
- White chocolate chips– Use two cups of white chocolate chips for the base of the fudge. This is about the amount you’ll find inside of an 8-ounce bag.
- Vanilla– Adding in one teaspoon of vanilla extract will make the fudge flavors intensify and taste even better.
- Almonds– You can buy your almonds already chopped or loosely chop them yourself with a large knife and cutting board.
For the exact measurements needed, please see the recipe card below.
How To Make White Chocolate Almond Fudge
- Prepare an 8’’ tray with parchment paper. Set aside.
- Place all the ingredients except almonds in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until well combined.
- Remove from heat.
- Pour the melted fudge into the prepared tray, be careful as it will be hot.
- Shake the tray for the fudge to set.
- Cover the fudge with chopped almonds, press them down to integrate them with the fudge.
- Refrigerate it for at least 2 hours or until completely hardened.
How to Make White Chocolate Fudge In The Microwave
- Add your condensed milk and white chocolate chips to a large mixing bowl.
- Place the bowl in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring well between each until smooth. Do not overcook.
- Quickly stir in the vanilla extract until mixed and then pour into your prepared baking dish.
- Top with chopped almonds and allow to cool and set completely before slicing and serving.
- Toasted almonds. Using toasted almonds on top of the fudge only helps to make it taste even better. Is that even possible? You can make your own toasted almonds to use by simply laying the chopped almonds out on a large baking sheet and baking in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 10 minutes. This will give you a great nutty taste.
- Nuts. If you don’t have almonds on hand or do not wish to use them you can swap them out for other nuts. For example, hazelnuts or macadamia nuts would work wonderfully with this recipe.
- Condensed milk. If you don’t have condensed coconut milk or can’t find it you can switch it out for regular condensed milk instead. You won’t end up with the same coconut flavor but adding in 1/4 teaspoon of coconut extract could help to fix that if you still want some coconut flavor.
Is Fudge Better With Evaporated Or Condensed Milk?
Fudge should be made with condensed sweetened milk and not evaporated milk unless specifically stated in the recipe card. The two ingredients are not interchangeable and if you use evaporated milk your fudge will not be set up correctly. I highly recommend double-checking the labels to make sure you’re only using condensed sweetened milk.
How Do You Store White Chocolate Fudge?
Your fudge should be kept stored in an airtight container at room temperature. You can place it in the fridge but it may dry out if not stored properly or kept in there for too long. You can easily place sliced squares in the freezer for up to 3 months if stored in an airtight container.
What Happens If You Cook Fudge Too Long?
If you overcook the white chocolate fudge mixture the chocolate can seize or the mixture could create sugar crystals. This is why it’s important to make sure that you aren’t distracted while heating the chocolate as it won’t take too long to get to that nice smooth texture we’re looking for.
