Christmas Sugar Cookie Fudge is an easy-to-make, rich and creamy combination of two delicious desserts: sugar cookies and fudge. With only 5 quick minutes to prep and 4 simple ingredients, this festive no-bake recipe is the sweetest way to spread holiday happiness.

  1. Melt chocolate chips.
    Pro Tip: Microwave on high in 3-second intervals, stirring in between, until smooth. Do not overcook the chocolate chips. White chocolate chips especially are easily hardened when melting down. Don’t leave them sitting in one place too long when heating. Be sure to stir every 20-30 seconds for best results.

  2. Microwave frosting in its container until completely turned to liquid.
    Pro Tip: Make sure you remove the lid and every piece of foil from the frosting container.
  3. Stir together frosting, melted chocolate, and sugar cookie mix until well combined.
    Pro-Tip: Do not add too much of the sugar cookie mix. You don’t want to dry out your fudge so that it sets up strangely. You only need the dry mix of the sugar cookie mix. You do not need to prepare according the directions on the package.

  4. Pour into the parchment-lined pan and spread until even. 
    Pro-Tip: Make sure to put a piece of parchment paper in the baking dish before pouring in the fudge. This will make it so much easier to cut the fudge into squares!

  5. Decorate with sprinkle mix.
  6. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until the fudge has set.
  7. Slice into squares, serve, and enjoy!
    Pro-Tip: Allow your fudge to sit out for about 15 minutes before cutting for added ease.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can this fudge be made ahead of time?

Yes, fudge is a great make-ahead treat and tastes just as delicious days later. You can make the fudge up to 2 weeks ahead of time and store in the fridge until you are ready to eat or gift it.

Can I use actual sugar cookies instead of sugar cookie mix from a package?

Yes, you can use actual cookies for this recipe. Place the Sugar Cookies in a food processor, and pulse them until they’re fine crumbs. Then add them to the melted chocolate and frosting according to instructions.

Can I use milk or dark chocolate instead of white chocolate?

You absolutely can use milk or dark chocolate to make great tasting fudge! I really love white chocolate but you can use any chocolate you like.
