Patriotic White Chocolate Fudge

This Patriotic White Chocolate Fudge is a sweet way to celebrate the 4th of July!!

Patriotic Red, White, and Blue Fudge

For the longest time, I assumed that fudge was a treat meant only for Christmastime. Not sure why I thought that, but I'm sure glad I was wrong. This easy Patriotic White Chocolate Fudge is decadent, what makes it patriotic is how the fudge is layered in red, white, and blue and topped with festive patriotic sprinkles. It's such an easy recipe to make, and is the perfect treat for sharing while celebrating the 4th of July! With a little change to food coloring and sprinkles, you could whip up this fudge for pretty much any holiday or occasion.

Patriotic Red, White, and Blue Fudge

You only need 5 simple ingredients to make this fudge recipe, and it comes together pretty quickly. In fact, because of this, I would recommend that you have all of the ingredients, utensils, and bowls ready to go as soon as you get started so that you don't have to scramble for anything during the process.

Along with the ingredients (listed below in the recipe), you will also need a saucepan, 3 mixing bowls, 3 spatulas (or spoons), and a 9x9 baking pan lined with parchment paper.

Patriotic Red, White, and Blue Fudge

Start by combining sugar, butter, and evaporated milk in a saucepan, and bring it to a boil. Set a timer for 5 minutes, and continue to boil the mixture while stirring constantly.

These 5 minutes are imperative to making a good fudge. If you boil it for less time, your fudge may not set up completely. If you go over the 5 minutes, your fudge could burn or have a grainy texture. So, just make sure to set a timer for the 5 minutes, and continuously stir to keep anything from burning to the bottom of the pan.

After boiling, remove the saucepan from the heat and immediately stir in marshmallow creme and white chocolate chips. Keep stirring the mixture until everything is evenly combined and smooth.

Split the fudge mixture equally into 3 mixing bowls. Add red gel food coloring to one bowl, blue to another, and then leave the last bowl as-is (white). Stir each of the bowls well to distribute the food coloring. Add more coloring as necessary to get a vibrant red and blue.

When it comes to food coloring, I recommend using a gel instead of liquid. I've found that the pigment in gel is a lot more concentrated, so you don't need to use as much. Whenever I use liquid, I tend to use a lot more of it and there has been a few times that it has altered the texture of the fudge.

Pour the bowl of blue-colored fudge into the bottom of the lined 9x9 baking pan and smooth it out into an even layer. Next, pour the white/non-dyed fudge over the blue, and smooth it out evenly. Add the red layer of fudge on top, and spread it out as evenly as possible.

If you'd like a marbled look to the fudge, lightly drag a butter knife through the fudge immediately after pouring the layers into the pan. It won't look like much from the top, but once you cut into it, the fudge will have a marbled look to it.

Immediately top the warm fudge with a generous amount of patriotic sprinkles and then allow the fudge to cool completely.

Make sure that the fudge has been refrigerated at least one hour, and then cut the fudge into 20 pieces. If you want smaller bites of fudge, you can cut them into 32 or more pieces.

I would recommend keeping the fudge stored in the refrigerator, but it can also be kept in an airtight container at room temperature. If you would like to gift the fudge, place some pieces into a cellophane treat bag and tie it closed with some patriotic ribbon. Keep it cool until ready to give away.
