White chocolate and blue candy melts are swirled together to make a delicious and pretty marbled fudge that's perfect for gifting or enjoying at home.
I make a lot of fudge. It's just one of those things that I always have on my list around the holidays because it's easy to make but everyone likes it.
I've been trying to get a little more creative with my fudge choices because I have so many on my blog already. I saw a really pretty white and blue marbled fudge that I couldn't wait to make.
In addition to being easy to make I thought it would be great to use for Hanukkah because of the blue and white colors. You could even put sprinkles on top.
- white chocolate chips
- sweetened condensed milk
- blue candy melts
To Make the Fudge: Line an 8 x 8 pan with foil. In a microwave safe bowl combine the white chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk. Heat in 20 second intervals until it's completely melted. Pour into the prepared pan. In the same bowl heat the blue candy melts and sweetened condensed milk in 20 second intervals until melted. Pour the mixture on top of the white chocolate and use a butter knife to make a swirl pattern. Chill for 2 hours or until firm.
I was able to make the fudge in about 10 minutes. The longest part of making it was microwaving the chocolate and candy melts.
Now there is a technique to making the swirl. Use a butter knife as it has an edge that will help the knife glide through the fudge.
What does the fudge taste like?
It really just tastes sweet with hints of white chocolate. Candy melts have just a sweet flavor and the white chocolate is fairly subtle.
Where do you buy candy melts?
You can buy candy melts at your local craft store. I've also found them at big box stores with a craft section like Walmart. Some specialty grocers carry candy melts as well. You can also buy them online.

How do you store the fudge?
The best thing to do is store it in the refrigerator as it does get a little soft at room temperature. I find keeping it in the refrigerator then taking it out a few minutes before serving is best.
When I swirl my fudge I start by going up and down. I start at one corner and pull the knife all the way down then move over an inch or so and go back up. This should make about 5 or 6 swirls.
Then you'll rotate the pan 90 degrees and do it again. Swirl the fudge 5 or 6 times. This will make a pretty pattern that you'll be able to see whenever the fudge is cut.
You also want to make sure the knife doesn't go all the way to the bottom of the pan or it will tear the foil and leave you with a mess. Hover the knife about halfway down into the pan of fudge when swirling.
