Easy, simple fudge is literally one of the best treats on earth.

You dump some stuff in a bowl, mix it up, and microwave it – and then let it cool and set.

And then, all of a sudden, you’re tucking into the most delectable, addictive, insanely sweet and gooey treats ever!

Because fudge is so simple and easy to make – and uses a lot of ingredients you’re likely to already have on hand – it makes a great gift for friends, co-workers, teachers, and neighbors.

Or yourself. Because, you know, after all that stirring and microwaving, you deserve a plate of some chewy goodness!

I hope you love this candy cookie dough fudge as much as I do – you can update it with seasonal M&M’s for every holiday – or even change it up and use a different candies, oreo cookies, jellybeans; the sky is the limit!

My Best Fudge Storing Tips (How to make ahead and keep fresh!)

  • If making ahead of time, keep fudge in one large sheet in the freezer, in a tight bag with no air bubbles in the freezer, for up to 3 months. I actually like to keep it inside two bags – one that has all the extra air pushed out, and one over that bag to help prevent freezer burn.
  • Do not slice fudge into squares until you’re going to give it away or eat it – this helps prevent it from drying out.
  • Store uneaten fudge in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for up to 1 week; or 2 weeks refrigerated.

How to cut perfect fudge:

  • Make sure your fudge is completely cooled before cutting (2 hours in fridge/1 hour in freezer)
  • Use a knife with good balance (my favorite is a 5″ santoku knife, because it has a good thick blade and fits well in my hand)
  • Press down hard, and break it apart!
