Homemade Fudge Wedding Favor

If you love this recipe, be sure to Yum it here: Yum


My mom makes homemade fudge every Christmas to go with her famous cookie platters. It's one of those treats that you sneak into the fridge for. You know, the kind of treat that you take, then move everything in the container around a little bit to cover the empty spot your sneaky hands just created.

I never made it myself, though, until this weekend. See, it rained for about ten days in a row here, and Pete and I braved the hurricane and flooding to pick up some groceries. So of course, we had to pick up the ingredients to make homemade fudge. As I was making it, I realized what a perfect wedding favor this would be and, thus, this post was born.

Homemade Fudge Wedding Favor


This is for the basic recipe. You can use this as a base for all different sorts of fudge. You can add nuts (although, if you're doing this as a favor, I would avoid those because people may have allergies), candy cane, marshmallows ... you could use white chips, peanut butter chips ... I mean, really, your possibilities are pretty endless.

Combine the the chips and sweetened condensed milk in bowl.

Microwave it for one minute.

Stir until combined and starts getting thick. (Here is where you would add in any mix-ins).

Resist the temptation to eat the entire batch. I know, it's hard. Try. To. Be. Strong.

Put a piece of fudge in the center of the paper square. Fold two opposite sides to the middle. Fold the other two sides in.

Do this three times and stack three pieces.

Tie a piece of baker's twine around it.

How absolutely adorable would that look at everyone's seats? This was so easy to make and Pete and I actually made it together, so this sounds like a good bonding experience for you and your fiance.

    1. Amy,

      We kept it in the fridge and on the counter and it was fine both ways. We ended up eating it faster when it in the fridge, though. I guess we saw it more often there. But it never melted on the counter, if that's your worry.

  12. My son & daughter in law did this as favors for their wedding back in 2012. It was such a big hit people were asking if we had more. Our daughter is getting married in May, we are probably going to do the fudge again as favors.
