2 Ingredient Fudge

Life is a whirlwind currently! I’ve been slammed with academics, college applications, and social events for the last few weeks and it has been a wild time. However, I did manage to squeeze in time to prepare this 2 Ingredient Fudge!

It’s a perfect recipe for the upcoming holiday season and I have a feeling that everyone will love this simple treat! Watch the video showing you how to prepare this fudge recipe, then scroll to the bottom of this post and print out the recipe so you can make it at home.

Most people would assume that this is a picture of ordinary fudge stored in the back of the freezer until Christmas comes along… This isn’t the case. This fudge is unique because it only contains TWO ingredients: chocolate chips and cream cheese frosting.

Before making this recipe, I never would have assumed that chocolate chips and a can of frosting could pair together to make fudge.  All you have to do is melt the frosting in the microwave.  Then melt the chocolate chips and stir until smooth. Take a look!

Then you’ll combine the two melted ingredients together.

Stir until smooth! The mixture looked incredible! It reminded me of a cookies and cream themed fudge. After I kept mixing, however, the fudge turned entirely brown.

Tessie! I’m sure that everyone remembers my adorable dog and assistant. She helps me frequently in the kitchen by keeping an eye on what I’m making and taking care of anything that might fall on the floor!

The fudge mixture is scraped into a pan, and then it’s ready to be chilled! It took approximately two minutes to prepare everything up to this point, so I’d say that is a worthy use of time!

Squares of 2 Ingredient Fudge

So many squares! I am a huge fan of fudge, no matter how complicated it may be. Initially, I thought that this fudge would be somewhat sub-par compared to more complicated fudge recipes, but that was not the case at all. This fudge is so much better than most fudge recipes I’ve tried.

These squares of fudge are absolutely beautiful! I’d highly recommend this simple recipe to everyone preparing for the holiday season. This fudge will definitely become a family favorite for the Lange household!

Unfortunately something is wrong when I refrigerate my fudge. When it comes out there are a lot of white spots and lines on it. What am I doing wrong?

Do you have tubs of frosting sold there like we do in the United States? That's what you need for this recipe.

This sounds so intriguing I must try it. This easy recipe reminded me of a fad that went around here a few years ago: Velveeta fudge (chocolate). I was given the recipe and told it was fabulous, but I was leery about perhaps ruining expensive ingredients. Just wondering if any of you have tried the Velveeta fudge recipe and if so, how was it? (Can only imagine the negative comments from “experts “ about Velveeta fudge.)

Velveeta fudge is surprisingly WONDERFUL! Smooth and creamy and very fudgy

We haven't tried the Velveeta!
