Easy Chocolate Walnut Fudge Recipe

I thought it was time to share another super easy Fudge Recipe with you guys for our Christmas Baking Frenzy. This simple Chocolate Walnut Fudge is loaded with walnut pieces and topped with Christmas sprinkles which makes it a festive addition to your holiday trays. Like the Chocolate Caramel Turtle Fudge we shared the other week, this one comes together in minutes and takes just a couple of ingredients. It is so easy to make that you can do a double batch in under 15 minutes (yes!).



I seriously just love a good fudge! It is not only great on your cookie trays, but awesome to package as a gift on its own as well (teachers gifts done!)…I mean who wouldn’t love to get a box of this Chocolate Walnut Fudge? I dare you not to lick the bowl before pouring this delicious fudge into your pan!

Yum! Such a perfect Christmas treat, Melissa. My mouth is watering right now. Can I use some other kind of milk, such a coconut milk?

Thank you so much!!! I was actually talking with another reader last week about the option of a dairy free milk. I suggested coconut milk but I have not tried it myself (it is on my list for the next one!). I would think with the consistency of the coconut milk that it should be okay, though you may need some coconut oil as well to help thicken it!
