How to make Easy Christmas Cookie Fudge Recipe
I am LOVING how easy and simple this Christmas Fudge Recipe is! It’s one of my favorite holiday treats to make for parties and gifts for others!
First, warm up your flour in the microwave in 10 second increments until the temperature reaches 160 degrees. Be sure to stir your flour in between increments.
Next, add your almond bark and sweetened condensed milk to a heat safe bowl.
Then measure out your brown sugar and salt, adding them to the bowl too.
Now place your heat safe bowl over a pot of water to make a double boiler. Heat the ingredients over medium/low heat until completely smooth.
Next, add in the flour. Over low heat stir in the flour until combined, then remove the bowl from the heat and mix in the vanilla.
Now allow the fudge to cool for 3 minutes before added 1/4 cup of the Christmas M&Ms. Mix until combined.
Then pour the fudge batter into a prepared baking pan and sprinkle the rest of the Christmas M&Ms on top of the fudge.
Finally, allow the fudge to cool and set for 6-8 hours (or overnight). Once the fudge has hardened, slice into squares to serve. Delicious!

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Baking time: 0
Additional time/cooling time: 6-8 hours
1 cup unbleached flour
16 ounces white almond bark
1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 ounces)
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup holiday M&Ms
Line an 8” square baking dish with parchment paper.
Heat flour in 10 second increments and stir between until it reaches 160 degrees and set aside (it took mine 4, 10 second increments).
Combine almond bark, sweetened condensed milk, unsalted butter, brown sugar, and salt in a double boiler.
Heat on medium/low heat until smooth.
Once smooth, reduce to low heat and stir in flour until combined.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Let cool for 3 minutes and add 1/4 cup of M&Ms to the batter.
Pour batter into the prepared pan and add the remaining M&Ms to the top.
Let the fudge cool for 6-8 hours or overnight until hard.
M&Ms do best when they are not refrigerated. So to keep the colors from spreading, let this fudge cool at room temperature.
Best stored at room temperature for 2-3 weeks in an airtight container.

What is the secret to perfect fudge?
Temperature! Cook your the ingredients over the double boiler to the right temperature before pouring into the pan. Then allow your fudge to cool for 6-8 hours (or overnight) to completely set.
You do not want your fudge to boil, just melted completely and smooth.
How long is fudge good for?
Fudge, at room temperature, will be good for 2 to 3 weeks! Of course, if it lasts that long before being eaten! Make sure to store it in an air tight container too!
What is Cookie Dough Fudge?
Cookie dough fudge, especially this M&M Cookie Fudge, is all the flavor of classic cookie dough just not in the form of a cookie! Making cookie dough fudge is easy because you will use sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt as a base to get an easy no bake cookie dough flavor in fudge form!
