About Pink White Chocolate Fudge
Fudge is one of those treats that’s great any time of year, but this festive pink white chocolate fudge would be a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day or Easter. Any occasion where you could use a pop of pastel color, this fudge is here to make that much sweeter.
Plus, this white chocolate fudge recipe only has two main ingredients with two optional additions, so you can make it as easy or as pretty as you’d like!
What type of chocolate should you use?
“Cooking chocolate” is a staple in baking – you can find it in the baking supply area, and it typically looks like a large candy bar – and while there are multiple brands to choose from, I do think there are significant differences in the quality of the chocolate for each brand.
Baker’s is by far the most common brand, but I’ve found their chocolate to have a dry texture and the flavor to be a little “off.” It’s not a bad choice by any means, especially if Baker’s is all you can find, but I’ve been happier with my banked goods and candy if I can get my hands on another brand.
And because of this, I highly recommend using Ghirardelli Premium Baking Bars (and for this recipe, the white chocolate baking bar.) Ghirardelli is a little more expensive, but trust me, you’ll appreciate the flavor and consistency you’ll get from a premium brand.
How long does fudge last?
When stored in a sealed container on the counter, white chocolate fudge should last anywhere from two to four weeks.
Can you freeze fudge?
Yes, you totally can!
To freeze fudge, be sure to store it properly. You can either:
- Cut the fudge and wrap each individual piece in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, then store in an airtight container or freezer bag.
- Do not cut the fudge and instead freeze the whole block, storing it in an airtight container or freezer bag. Cut the fudge once thawed and ready to eat.
How can you tell if fudge has gone bad?
If you’ve had your fudge for a while, you can tell it’s past its prime if it either:
- Feels hard, dried out, or crumbles easily.
- If the fudge appears to be “melting” (without heat) or has a slimy texture. If freshly made fudge is doing this, try storing it in the refrigerator.

Pink White Chocolate Fudge

- Pour fudge into prepared baking dish and smooth out the top in an even layer. If desired, decorate top of fudge with toppings of your choice.
- Refrigerate fudge for at least 3 hours or until set.
