Christmas Fudge with Shortbread Pieces

Disasters happen when baking, it is part of the game! It’s what you do with the outcome that shows you how incredibly versatile and creative baking can be! This fudge is so easy and uses crumbles left from a shortbread disaster we had.

Even if you didn’t have a disaster, all you need to do is take about 5-6 of your Whipped Shortbread cookies (from Day Two ) and crumble them into medium chunks to toss into the hot fudgey mixture!

Cooking Time: under 5 minutess (requires chilling)

Makes: one 8×8 baking pan cut into squares


  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp softened butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 5-6 crumbled shortbread cookies
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • colourful Christmas sprinkles


  1. Line 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper
  2. Over a double boiler melt the condensed milk, chocolate chips,  butter and salt.
  3. Add in shortbread crumbles, mix and pour into baking dish.
  4. Sprinkle with Christmas sprinkles of your choice


You can see in the picture above that the shortbread pieces pop throughout the fudge, making every bite better than the last one!
