Easy Fudge Recipe

This recipe is made simply with frosting and chocolate chips. You can use any variation of these two ingredients, which makes it so fun to specialize your own fudge recipe! You can also add mix-ins like nuts, sprinkles, or peanuts to spice up your recipe!

Not only is it just two ingredients, but it is heated in the microwave so you do not have to use a saucepan or the stove. With only 5 minutes of prep time, it’s so easy! The fudge is sweet and creamy and the perfect easy dessert for Christmas or for anyone who loves homemade fudge!

Ingredients Needed

  • Chocolate Chips: Use any kind or flavor of dark chocolate chips or white chocolate chips you like.
  • Frosting: Use any flavor canned icing – a one pound tub.

How to make 2 Ingredient Fudge

  1. In large microwave-safe bowl, microwave chocolate chips uncovered on High 1 minute.
  2. Spoon frosting over chips. Microwave on High 30 seconds; stir until chocolate melts.
  3. If necessary, continue to microwave in 15-second increments until mixture can be stirred smooth.
  4. Spread evenly in an 8-inch square baking pan lined with foil or parchment paper. Chill uncovered until set, about 1 hour.


You can use white chocolate chips with vanilla frosting or regular chocolate chips with chocolate frosting, or you mix and match – they will always be tasty. Add any mix-ins too, like sprinkles, butterscotch chips, walnuts, peanuts or coconut to add to the creamy texture of the fudge! There are so many frosting flavors – like strawberry, lemon, coconut pecan frosting, and so many more!

  1. The best recipe for fudge I’ve ever seen on my life. It’s super easy to do and the flavors are outstanding. I made mine with white chocolate chips and a tub a cream cheese frosting and it was heaven in my mouth. Tonight we are trying milk chocolate chips with German chocolate frosting. It’s going to be good in an hour or so. Try the recipe out and see how easy it is toake.

  2. I love to look at cook books and try new things it’s hard to find ones that call for ingredients that are always in someone’s pantry.
