Try Some Add-Ins For Extra Goodness!

You can totally switch things up with this recipe depending on what you like/don’t like! I sometimes add some dried cranberries or cherries to give it that special touch. Although it’s perfectly freaking AMAZING on its own too!

How to Make 3 Ingredient Christmas Fudge

  1. Use tinfoil to line an 8×8 pan.
  2. Melt the chocolate chips in a glass Pyrex measuring cup.
  3. Melt the icing in the microwave and add to the chips.
  4. Add in jujubes and mix.
  5. Pour into the pan and refrigerate.
  6. Once hard, cut into 36 pieces to serve.

How Long Does This Christmas Fudge Last?

Once you store this fudge in an airtight container it’ll last for up to two weeks at room temperature. If you refrigerate it, it’ll last for about one more week. But if you need it to last a bit longer, you can always freeze it!

Just wrap the fudge in plastic wrap and aluminum foil and place in a large freezer bag before freezing. A useful tip is to wrap individual squares so you can grab and go as you want them (although I can’t guarantee they’ll last very long when they’re so easy to snack on!!).

      Does 3 ingredient Christmas fudge have 86k calories?

      • Karlynn Johnston says

        The large calorie, food calorie, or kilocalorie (Cal, calorie or kcal) is the amount of heat needed to cause the same increase in one kilogram of water. Thus, 1 kilocalorie (kcal) = 1000 calories (cal).

        It’s the scientific name for Calorie.5 stars

  7. Narissa Gowan says

    My son can’t eat anything chewy like the candy. Do you have any suggestions to replace the jujubes?

    • Christina Tayman says

      Will gummy bears or the gum drops work in replacing the Jujube candy? I can’t find it anywhere.
