Strawberry Fudge Recipe
One of my favorite hot weather treats is a strawberry milkshake – and this strawberries and cream fudge recipe tastes like a strawberry milkshake in bite-sized form.
This strawberry fudge is that perfect combination of fudgy and creamy – once you sink your teeth into it, it just melts in your mouth. The fudge is very sweet with a subtle strawberry flavor that is not overpowering.
It’s the perfect recipe for satisfying your sweet tooth when you don’t want to heat up the house by turning on the oven. Plus it takes less than 10 minutes to whip up this recipe and then set it in the fridge.
There are so many fun occasions that this strawberry fudge would be perfect for:
- add to a Valentine’s Day party menu
- serve at a baby shower
- enjoy Mother’s Day dessert
- it’s perfect for a princess party
- or give it away as a special, homemade gift
Can this fudge be made on the stove? Yes, simply combine the candy melts and sweetened condensed milk in a saucepan over low heat, stirring until chocolate is completely melted. Remove from heat and then stir in the strawberry candy flavoring before pouring into your baking dish.
Can this fudge be frozen? This fudge will last at room temperature for up to two weeks, if kept in an airtight container. Refrigerating will allow it to last up to a month.
However, if are planning way ahead of time, you can freeze this fudge for up to four months, but note that the texture will change slightly. If you do need to freeze it, try to freeze it before cutting into servings (to prevent the fudge from drying out) and wrap in wax paper before placing in an airtight zip-top bag.

How to Make Strawberry Fudge
Grease and line a 6″ x 8″ casserole dish and set aside.
Place the 1 cup pink candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 30 second bursts in the microwave.
Stir well in between each reheating until completely melted.
Repeat with the white candy melts.
Add a few drops of the strawberry candy flavoring to the pink candy melts and stir to ensure the candy melts are evenly flavored.
Working quickly, add 2-3 Tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk to each bowl, to taste.
Add dollops of the pink and white fudge mixture to the casserole dish in a random pattern.
Use a knife or offset spatula to swirl the flavors together.
Refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.
Remove from pan and cut into 1″ squares.
Melt the 2 Tablespoons pink candy melts (using the same method outlined above) and drizzle over the cut squares.
Let dry completely before serving.
