Festive season is here !! Spirits are high !! Will is strong to make something sweet for my family but not enough time on hand. Is that your life story too? Don’t you worry my Condensed Milk fudge comes to the rescue in such situation. Only 3 main ingredients and 5 minutes is all you need to make an easy dessert . And the possibilities are endless. No stove top cooking required for making this fudge . Just one bowl and a simple microwave does the trick. I promise that this fudge is as rich and delicious as the traditional fudge recipes.
Oh how I love microwave for making quick and easy desserts. My all time favorite being this –
Microwave Indian Triple Chocolate Kalakand recipe and
Microwave 10 minute Double chocolate walnut fudge recipe.
If you are not a Microwave fan , feel free to make them on the stove top. Instructions given in the recipe.
I have been contemplating over many recipes this past month. Wanted to share so many recipes with you guys !! Especially Ras Malai , Malpuas and Jalebis. But yes there is always a but!! This past year have been so hectic with my baby. It’s as if I am competing with time. Cooking daily meals is overwhelming and I can barely manage it.
Can’t even think of making elaborate sweets. I can only dream about them. I try to share at least one recipe a week with you. Frustration is setting in ( Post Partum depression 🙁 ) but I am hanging in there. I tell myself everyday ” This isn’t permanent .Life is going to be better. Just a matter of time. Make most of the present. ”
Cooking, taking photos , writing is a lot of work but that’s the only way to connect with a sweet audience like you. After a long crazy day with two kids, daily chores when I open my laptop and blog I feel so satisfied. Sharing is my way to unwind. Thank you for being a part of my world!
Coming back to this super easy fudge recipe.
Old Fashioned Fudge vs Condensed Milk Fudge
Traditionally the old-fashioned fudge is made by stirring in milk, sometimes evaporated milk , chocolate / cocoa , sugar flavoring in a sauce pan. Cooking it on a low flame . This method requires constant stirring so that the mixture doesn’t burn and avoid crystallization of sugar It also requires to cook the fudge mixture to a certain temperature. Hence you will require a candy thermometer as well to make old-fashioned fudge. Some recipes even use marshmallow cream to make fudge.
Good new is that Condensed milk fudge requires only 3 main ingredients for the base.
It really just comes down to –
- Sweetened Condensed milk
- Choice of chocolate ( white , semi-sweet or dark)
- Flavoring of your choice
No thermometer or pro candy making skills needed here. Fudge can be done in a microwave or on a double boiler within minutes. No constant stirring required to make fudge using condensed milk.
There are so many fun and delicious variations you can try using this basic white chocolate fudge recipe.
GET CREATIVE with fudge flavors and add ons .
Fun add ons –
You may fold in some nuts, dried fruits, chocolate chips, pretzel bites, cereal , caramel bits in the fudge base.
Play with Flavors –
You can even try different flavoring other than just vanilla.
I love lemon extract, any fruit extract, peppermint extract , citrus zest .
Color your fudge –
You can color white chocolate fudge with oil based color or adding dried food grade powder . Do not use any water based food color or purees as it will seize the chocolate. Go natural and use a bit of turmeric for yellow, matcha for green . You may use freezer dried fruit powder that are readily available in super market. Have fun with vibrant colors from beet, pitaya , blueberry, raspberry powder and many more.
Spice up your fudge –
Choose from wide variety like pumpkin spice, chai spice, lavender , pepper , saffron , cardamom.
Ideas and possibilities are endless here. You are just limited by your imagination.
Today I will show you how to make this Indian fudge aka burfi using condensed milk fudge as a base.
It’s a Indian fusion sweet recipe. It is so easy to make Burfi with condensed milk and tastes absolutely rich and delicious just like the traditional one.
I have added Indian popular spice mix Thandai powder to make this Indian style fudge.
Thandai powder is made of ground peppercorn, cardamom, fennel, melon seeds, poppy seeds , rose petals.
It’s actually consumed as a drink by mixing it in milk and served chill on hot summer days.
Holi – Indian festival of colors actually marks the beginning of Thandai fever.
So when I made this easy burfi recipe for Holi, I thought why not share this Indian Fudge recipe with you.
What I like about this recipe is balance of flavors.
As white chocolate fudge is really sweet the Thandai powder spice mix really cuts that sweetness. If you do not have thandai powder mix you may add a little bit of each ingredient separately. If all ingredients are not available then a little black pepper, cardamom, saffron, fennel will do .It works like a charm!! Do top it with some roasted chopped nuts .
Fudge makes great edible gifts for your friends and family. It is even cheap on the pocket and budget friendly sweet. Most importantly a big batch of this fudge comes together in 10 minutes and no mess.
How long will condensed milk fudge last?
Condensed milk fudge will last about 2 weeks at room temperature in an air tight container and about a month if refrigerated.
You may individually wrap each fudge piece, place it in an air tight container and freeze it for 3-4 months.
How to make quick and easy burfi with no cook microwave method?
All you need to do is combine sweetened condensed milk and white chocolate in the microwave and melt it together.
Stir in your favorite toppings and set it in desired mold.
It is that simple!!
How does fudge taste ?
It is firm to hold but once you bite into it , it just melts in your mouth.
Fudge tastes rich and delicious in every bite.
As I have added Indian spices and flavoring it tastes exactly like a burfi but made in a super simple way.
The fudge recipe that I am sharing with you today is not too soft and not too hard. I feel it’s just right .
Feel free to adjust the quantity of chocolate –
¼ cup less chocolate for softer fudge.
¼ cup more chocolate for a harder fudge.

Found you on a google search while looking for a simple white chocolate fudge recipe. Tried it with only vanilla and topped with pecans!!! So easy to make and so yummy.
Wonderful to know Nelson, Happy Holidays!
Made this super quick and yummy fudge for Diwali. It was an instant hit and it took no time and effort for me to make it. Can’t wait to make other variations of this for more gifting. Thank you for this amazing recipe and look forward to try more of your yummy recipes
Hi, this looks incredible, just one query, isn’t it going to be too sweet, with both sweetend condensed milk and white chocolate as there is no milk powder or paneer, i mean some non sweet ingredient. Thanks
Supriya, Yes this fudge is sweet. Hence each serving size is a very small piece. If you don’t have a sweet tooth then use dark chocolate.
Wow quick recipe. I will definitely try for Holi 👍
Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe, my only concern is I do not eat chocolate so please can you advise any other ingredient besides chocolate???
Hi Leena the recipe will change completely. Try finding a recipe online using cocoa, nut flour and condensed milk.
Hi khusboo . Thank you for the wonderful recipe. Chan you share thandai masala recipe or if it is store bought can you please share the brand. Thanks
Hello Pya, it’s a store-bought dry thandai masala. The brand is Kapol thandai
Hi can I use compound chocolate instead of chocolate chips? Chocolate chips are much harder
Hello, Dominique Compound chocolate is fine.
Made this white chocolate fudge yesterday as baby shower favors. We marbled it with blue candy melts . Super cute and affordable gift.
Wow, that’s a great gifting idea. I am happy you liked it Simone!
I LOVE your recipies,you inspire me to be more creative with the fudge I make for friends and family! I have some fat free sweetened condensed milk and would like to know if you have used it to make fudge? Or maybe you can recommend a dessert I can make with it? Thank you for sharing!
Hey Jenny thank you. I am not sure how fat-free condensed milk will work here. I have never used it. By fat-free you mean sugar-free? Do you make your own condensed milk? I am very curious!
Hi khushboo. Lovely fudge! Planning to make this today. Will 2m white compound work? As I have that in my pantry. In that case what will be the ratio of chocolate to condensed milk. Thanks in advance
Hi Lourdes, I haven’t heard of 2 M White chocolate. But as far as I know compounds are sturdy enough and work well. So it should be fine. The ratio would be the same as using white chocolate.
Hi mine did not set! It was all gooy what can I do to retrieve the soft mess
This fudge recipe gets a lot of love from my readers. I am not sure what went wrong with yours Angela. I know it’s frustrating when something doesn’t work. Let us see how we can save it. Did you use the given proportion of chocolate to condensed milk? Because this recipe has a good amount of chocolate for the fudge to set. Did the chocolate melt well? It takes a few hours to set in the fridge. In hot weather, it may be overnight. If it is still soft remelt it at low temperature and fold in half a cup of already melted chocolate. Then set again.
Thanks… Yes could have… I added some more milk and made kulfi out of it 🙂
Whenever I see your blog, I feel your family is lucky to have you and all the delicious food you must be cooking for them
Much love from India 🙂
Aww thank you Priyanka
I don’t know why it turned out too sweet for me 🙁
Maybe Morde I bought was too sweet … I was looking forward to keep these for Janmashtmi tomorrow…. Feeling sad
PS: your cooking and food photography is super inspiring and I have tried multiple recipes from your blog
Such a bummer Priyanka. White chocolate fudge is generally sweet. May be you do not have a very sweet tooth. You can of course serve it for Janmashathami. Cut bite size pieces like 1 ” and serve like prasad. You can drizzle some melted dark chocolate over the fudge too , to cut down the sweetness.
My wife made this today and it tastes great! Thank you for inspiring her. You are doing a good job.
Hi love the recipe!! Can you tell me a good quality indian cooking chocolate for both white and dark chocolatess? Thank you!
You may use Morde Lina.
Love this recipe! Could you suggest flavourings/add ons that go well with dark chocolate? Also if making the dark chocolate fudge, what could be the quantities of add ons?
Waiting to try out this recipe.
Hi Nikki , walnuts almonds , pistachio …. any nuts nuts, dried fruits like dried orange, pineapple or cranberries go well. Even chocolate chips . You may add orange zest too. I have given a list of add ons in my post. You may refer that. Not more than 3/4 cups. You can use 1/2 cup initially and eyeball . If you wish add more.
Love the milk fudge !!!! Stay strong 💪
