25 Over-the-Top Fudge Recipes
It’s hard to imaging there is a way to top rich decadent fudge. While we all appreciate a family recipe passed down from generation to generation, instead of making that tired chocolate fudge recipe for holiday gifts, this year experiment with these outrageous fudge recipes that are sprinkled, studded, and spiked with additional flavor-boosting ingredients.
Cashew and Cardamom Fudge Soy Paneer
Redolent with the richness of cashews and the perfume of cardamom, fudge-like kaju barfi is a favorite South Asian sweet. Cooked-down milk, sugar, and ground cashews are combined into a concentrated paste that is seasoned with spices, then pressed into a pan and cooled. — Andrea Nguyen
Chocolate and Cherries Fudge
This recipe is like chocolate covered cherries on overdrive. The added crunch and fat from the almonds balances the sugary sweet taste of the candied cherries.
Chocolate and Pretzels Fudge
Enjoy this salty-sweet fudgy treat with a cold glass of milk. This fudge will also make a statement on the dessert table — the pretzels make a beautiful lacey pattern.
Cookies and Cream Fudge
This simple cookies and cream fudge recipe uses both white and milk chocolate and has the added texture and flavor of the crushed cream-filled chocolate cookies to make it that much more irresistible.
Cranberry and Cashews Fudge
Enjoy the pairing of delicately, almost-sweet flavored cashews with tart cranberries in a white chocolate fudge.
Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Avocado Fudge
This fudge recipe actually has some healthful components to it. Don’t feel guilty digging into this salty, sweet treat that is made rich thanks to avocado instead of butter. — Maya Nahra RD

Kahlua, Espresso Bean, and Bacon Fudge

Sour Cream and Cherry Fudge
You might not expect to find sour cream in your fudge, but the tartness from the unsweetened cream balances the sweet cherries perfectly.
White Chocolate Cocoa Pebbles Fudge
Breakfast cereal and white chocolate combine to make this beautifully speckled fudge. The chocolate cereal gives a nice textured crunch to the otherwise smooth fudge. — Wishes and Dishes
