Grinch Fudge

Grinch fudge is so jolly that it is sure to make even the smallest heart grow three sizes in one day. With spicy cinnamon Red Hots and peppermint flavor and the sweetness of classic fudge, this Grinch fudge makes the most of all the holiday flavors.

Grinch Fudge

Red and green food coloring dress it up for the holidays and pay homage to the Grinch’s green fur and his bright red heart that swells with the Christmas spirit. 

There are two things I love during the Christmas season besides decorations: Christmas specials and fudge.

Grinch Fudge

One of my favorite Christmas specials? The Grinch. Of course. I love the old school Dr. Seuss version and the Jim Carrey version. And some of my boys are pretty excited about the new version that’s out right now.

Ok, if I am being honest with you all, they aren’t the only ones who are excited. I’m pretty excited about the movie too.

Grinch Fudge

But I am more excited about this Grinch fudge. It takes my love of the Grinch and my love of fudge and combines it to something truly magically delicious for Christmas.

You don’t need much to make this Grinch-y magic happen either.

Just round up two cans of sweetened condensed milk, white chocolate chips, red and green food coloring, peppermint extract and cinnamon Red Hots.

Making the fudge is easier than planning to steal Christmas in one night. Just empty each can of sweetened condensed milk into a small saucepan and pour half of the white chocolate chips along with peppermint extract into each pan.

Heat over medium low heat while stirring. Keep stirring until the chocolate in each saucepan is melted.

Then add a few drops of green food coloring to one pan and and a few drops of red food coloring to the other. Stir until all the color is incorporated.

Then pour the green fudge into a prepared 8×8 dish and sprinkle the Red Hots on top. Next pour the red fudge on top of the green fudge.

Take a butter knife and swirl it through the fudge to marble it. Let the fudge cool and cut into squares.

Then enjoy and feel your own heart grow three sizes with one bite of this deliciously merry Grinch fudge.

  1. I never made fudge before. so when I made this one I was hoping it would turn out but it didn’t. maybe some one can help me. I followed the reciepe but my fudge didn’t harden. any ideas why it didn’t.

    1. This quick fudge recipe does make a softer fudge than the old fashioned kind. If it’s not firm enough for you, you can always pop it into the fridge until it’s set before slicing and serving.
