Easy microwave fudge swirled with fun colours, topped with icing and transformed into cute little monsters!
I’m a bad food blogger. I have yet to jump on the Halloween recipe bandwagon this year. Until today.
So I figured if you’re going to do a thing, do it just a little bit different. I opted not to use orange or black for the fudge. Instead I went with bright colours.
You could do this with orange, or with black. Whatever floats your Halloween boat. I just like cute colours. It’s the girl in me.
I have a thing for cute food. I have a thing for tiny food. So I combined my two loves and made each slice a cutie-patootie little monster.
I know. It’s ridiculously silly, and slightly adorable. It’s how I roll. Halloween gets the cute treatment around the Beaulieu compound.
So you can find the recipe for this cutie-patootie fudge over at Real Housemoms. I’m a monthly contributor over at Aubrey’s pad. So zip on over there to grab the recipe for this Easy Monster Fudge.

- 12 ounces white chocolate broken into small pieces
- 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup confectioners sugar
- Food Colouring if desired
- 1 package of edible googly eyes
- Frosting homemade or store bought
The first thing you want to do is decide how many colours you want to use. Set the food colouring on the counter. Once you decide how many colours you want to use, you can set aside the same amount of small dishes/jars for mixing each individual colour. Set those aside.
Line a small pan with parchment paper, then spray with non-stick spray. Set aside.
In a large microwave safe bowl or measuring cup combine the white chocolate and sweetened condensed milk. Pop the bowl in the microwave for 1 minute, remove and stir, then pop back in for another 1 to 2 minutes, checking it every 30 seconds. Everyone's microwave is different so be sure to check every 30 seconds. It's done when the white chocolate melts smoothly into the sweetened condensed milk. It should be slightly thick, not runny. Do not over cook it.
Remove from the microwave and pour a little in each jar you set aside earlier.
Now add 1 to 2 drops of one colour in each jar. Use a popsicle stick to mix. Add the confectioners sugar equally into each jar, mix again.
Now you want to randomly drop each colour of fudge mixture into the pan. There's no rhyme or reason to it. Just drop colours here and there and keep layering them. Once they are layered you can take a toothpick or blunt edge of a knife and drag it through to make swirls or designs.
Place the fudge in the fridge for about 4 hours minimum, or overnight.
Remove from fridge and slice the fudge into small squares.
For the Decorations:
Place frosting in the a piping bag and pipe a small rosette on each slice. (I made two quick batches. I used 1/2 cup confectioners sugar, 1 drop food colouring and 1 tablespoon heavy cream, and mixed. Super easy to make. Or just pick up some pre-made frosting.)
Place googly eyes on each piece randomly.
