The process of making this Christmas sugar cookie fudge is about as easy as it gets - just 3 simple steps are all you have to follow. And that's exactly why it's one of my go-to recipes when I'm hosting for the holidays. It just keeps making dessert so stress-free.
Anyway, I know you want to dig into the best sugar cookie Christmas fudge ever, so let's not waste any more time and start making some fudge!
Step 1: Make the Fudge Mixture
First, add your sweetened condensed milk and white chocolate chips to a saucepan and heat it over medium heat. Then, let the sweetened condensed milk and white chocolate chips heat up, and stir frequently until melted.
Then, add the sugar cookie mix, vanilla extract, half of the holiday sprinkles, and butter to the saucepan.
Now, mix everything together until you have a nicely melted and smooth consistency.
Step 2: Set The Fudge
Next, gently pour the fudge mixture into a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
I like to clip my parchment paper onto the tray so it holds its shape and is easier to remove later.
Anyway, finish by adding the rest of the festive sprinkles (red sprinkles and green sprinkles are best) on top of the sugar cookie fudge.
Then, place the delicious fudge in the refrigerator and let it set for about an hour or so until solid.
Step 3: Serve
Once your fudge is solid, remove it from the baking dish by pulling the parchment paper out of the dish. Then, transfer the fudge to a cutting board and let it thaw for a few minutes before cutting it into about 10 squares.
Finally, serve this delicious sugar cookie fudge on your favorite Christmas cookie trays, and let holiday season festivities begin!
How To Store the Fudge
This recipe for sugar cookie fudge is great because not only can you easily make it ahead of time, but the extras also hold up really well too.
As I mentioned, the fudge will make about 10 squares - depending on how you cut it - but you can always easily double or triple the ingredients and make more.
To store the leftover sugar cookie fudge, just put it in an airtight container with parchment paper separating each layer of fudge. Stored like that it will stay good at room temperature for a few days. However, if you store it as I just described in the fridge it will last for 2 weeks.
Alternatively, to store the fudge even longer you can freeze it. Again, just store it as I just described above and it will last for up to 3 months in your freezer. Then, whenever you want a square, just let it thaw for a couple of minutes and enjoy!
My Final Thoughts
Well, that's how to make Christmas sugar cookie fudge!
It's so sweet and so smooth and it literally tastes like a delicious sugar cookie in fudge form.
Honestly, this is one of the easiest and best Christmas dessert recipes you'll ever make. Plus, if you make it, not only will all of the adults love it but the kids will too. It's seriously such a crowd-pleaser and is the perfect way to spread holiday cheer.
