Christmas Fudge

"This recipe has been in our family for many years. This fudge is not sugary-sweet. It has a rich, chocolate, creamy taste that melts in your mouth. This is also good to make for that very special someone for Valentines Day."

Ready In:


  • 2 lbs ambrosia milk chocolate (*See note)
  • 12 pint whipping cream
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts


  • Slowly melt chocolate in a double boiler; simmer over low heat.
  • When the chocolate has completely melted, whip the whipping cream on the highest speed of your hand-held mixer, (for about 3 minutes) or until it has thickened.
  • Stir the whipped cream into the melted chocolate, until it has completely dissolved (continuously stirring for about 3 minutes). The fudge will become dark in color and glossy.
  • Stir in the chopped walnuts, then pour into a buttered 13x9x2-inch pan.
  • Refrigerate until slightly firm.
  • With a buttered knife, cut into 48 square pieces.
  • Refrigerate again, until fudge has firmed up completely.
  • *Note: Ambrosia Real Milk Chocolate is a good quality brand of chocolate that I use to make this fudge.
  • One other thing I wanted to mention. When I made this fudge, I stated to use a double boiler, but years ago I didn't own one, so I used an oversized waterless cookware pot (to heat/simmer the water in). I melted the chocolate in a large size aluminum bowl, which I placed that over the large pot of simmering 'hot' water. Also, you can place this fudge in the freezer, as it does freeze well.

    I had this recipe stored in my recipe box for over a year, and when I made the fudge, I see I forgot to rate and review the recipe. I made the fudge to take along to a cookie exchange, and everyone seem to enjoy it. I thought it was very good, and easy to make. The instructions were easy to follow as well. I like that the recipe only calls for 3 ingredients, and that the fudge wasn't too sugary-sweet. This is one recipe that will be stored in my recipe box. Thanks for the recipe Domestic Goddess!

    Walnuts are disgusting and the fudge came out harder than a brick, tried again and it came out runny. What temperature range does it need to be cooked in, this is very odd.


I enjoy cooking, baking, and sharing recipes.
