Hello my friends! A very sweet and short recipe for you all today: White Chocolate Strawberry Fudge! Super easy to make, only 4 ingredients required!
You can also watch a video of these truffles being made here on this new platform called Tangi!
I’ve been using this platform for several months now, posting some short videos that are exclusive. I also post many savory dishes there, which I don’t do so often here on the blog anymore.
When I first started this blog, I names it Pies and Tacos, because, well, I was planning on making lots of tacos, since they’re one of my favorite foods. However, as time went by and my blog progressed, I realized I loved photographing desserts much more than tacos.
Anyway, back to our treats! This White Chocolate Strawberry Fudge is super easy to make, only requires 4 ingredients, and is super addicting and hard to resist!
The texture is super gooey, sticky, silky, decadent, and any other word you can think of to describe the most delicious treats in the world!
The ingredients used to make this White Chocolate Strawberry Fudge are:
- Condensed milk
- Freeze dried strawberry powder
- White Chocolate
The method consists of basically putting all of the ingredients in a small saucepan, cooking them, while stirring non-stop.
After a few minutes, the mixture will achieve a fudgy and thick consistency, then you let it cool, roll it into balls, and coat the balls in anything from shredded coconut, to sprinkles, sugar, or chopped nuts.
In Brazil, this type of condensed milk fudge is known as Brigadeiro, and while the traditional brigadeiro is the chocolate version of this treat, we make all sorts of flavors. Brigadeiros are very popular in Brazil, and they even have specialty shoppes that are dedicated to making and selling gourmet brigadeiros in all sorts of flavors!
Here on the blog I have a few condensed milk fudge recipes you can check out.
Here are some tips on how to make these super easy White Chocolate Strawberry Fudge truffles:
- Make sure to use good quality white chocolate, don’t use white chocolate chips or candy melts. Check below for some white chocolate recommendations. You are looking for white chocolate baking bars preferably.
- Also feel free to leave out the chocolate in the recipe. In that case, you will have to cook the fudge longer in order to obtain a thick consistency. With the chocolate, cook for about 5 minutes, and without it, cooking time will be 10 to 15 minutes.
- Don’t EVER stop stirring the mixture while cooking. Doing so will make the fudge stick to the bottom of the pan, and burn!
- Lower the heat if the mixture starts to stick.
- Once the fudge is thick that you can run the spoon or spatula through the middle of the fudge, and it takes about 5 seconds to come together, you are good to go.
- Let it cool completely before rolling. You can also place it in the fridge before rolling.
- They are very freezer-friendly! Can be frozen before rolling, and also after rolling, already assembled. Check below to see the containers I recommend to freeze them.
This is the white chocolate I recommend for all of your baking needs. Look for products that have over 20% of cocoa butter. The higher the better.
The following recommendation is for E. Guittard White Chocolate and it has 31% cocoa butter. And yes, they come in chips, but they aren’t like the chips from the store. The white chocolate chips purchased at the store most likely have 0% cocoa butter.
You can use sliced freeze dried strawberries, and then process it in a small blender or food processor until it turns to a powder, or you can purchase the powder. You will need 1 oz for this recipe, which is about 1/4 cup of powder.
And here is my recommendation for the containers used to freeze the truffles. They will last in the freezer for up to 2 months. These White Chocolate Strawberry Fudge truffles are great for making ahead for parties, celebrations, cookie boxes (during Christmas or Easter time).
Anyway this turned out to be quite a long blog post for such an easy and quick recipe! Hope you like the information here! Thanks for reading! Have a great day!
White Chocolate Strawberry Fudge
- 1 oz. freeze-dried strawberries 28 grams
- 1-14 oz. can condensed milk 396 grams
- 1/2 cup white chocolate 85 grams, 3 oz
- 1 tbsp butter

Strawberry White Chocolate Fudge
- Start by processing the freeze dried strawberries into a powder, you should obtain about 1/4 cup of freeze dried strawberries.
- Mix the condensed milk, 1/2 cup chopped white chocolate, freeze dried strawberry powder, and butter in a small saucepan.
- Over medium heat, stir mixture without stopping, while you bring it to a boil.
- Once mixture comes to a boil, reduce heat to medium low.
- Keep stirring non stop while it cooks.
- Don’t stop stirring the mixture, or the fudge will stick to the bottom of the pan.
- You should cook it for about 5 minutes. If the mixture starts to stick to the bottom, lower the heat.
- To test if the fudge is ready, simply tilt the pan and if the mixture comes off from the bottom of the pan, you’re good to go. Mixture will look shiny and firm. If you run a spatula on the bottom of the pan, fudge will take about 5 seconds to come together again. You are looking for a very thick stage.
- Remove fudge to a buttered plate. Let it cool down until it gets to room temperature and then stick it in the fridge.
- Let it sit in the fridge for an hour or so until it’s cool.
- With buttered hands, scoop a small amount of fudge and roll between your palms to form a smooth ball. Coat the ball in shredded coconut, granulated sugar, sprinkles, or freeze dried strawberry powder. Put in small baking cups (I used 1 inch ones)
- Do this until you’re done with all the fudge. You’ll obtain around 20 balls depending on how big you make them.
- Store the Strawberry White Chocolate Fudge in the fridge for up to 15 days.
- You can also store it in the freezer for up to 2 months, make sure it’s well packaged. To thaw it, simply place it in the fridge a couple hours before serving.
