Ingredients

Nutella Fudge

  • 1 14 oz can condensed milk
  • 3 tablespoons Nutella
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

To roll

  • 1/2 cup sprinkles

Instructions

Nutella Fudge

  1. Place the condensed milk, Nutella, and butter in a saucepan.
  2. Over medium heat, stir mixture without stopping, while you bring it to a boil.
  3. Once mixture comes to a boil, reduce heat to medium low.
  4. Keep stirring non stop while it cooks.
  5. Don’t stop stirring the mixture, or the fudge will stick to the bottom of the pan.
  6. You should cook it for about 10 minutes.
  7. 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.
  8. Remove fudge to a buttered plate. Let it cool down until it gets to room temperature and then stick it in the fridge.
  9. Let it sit in the fridge for an hour or so until it’s cool.
  10. With buttered hands, scoop a small amount of Nutella fudge and roll between your palms to form a smooth ball. Coat the ball in sprinkles. Put in small baking cups (I used 1 inch ones)
  11. Do this until you’re done with all the fudge. You’ll obtain around 20 balls depending on how big you make them.

Storage

  1. Store the Nutella Fudge in the fridge for up to 15 days.
  2. 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.

Recipe Notes

*You can also roll the fudge balls in sanding sugar, shredded coconut, chopped nuts.

**You can make the fudge into square treats by spreading the fudge on the bottom of a 9x5” pan lined with parchment paper, and let it chill in the fridge for a few hours. You can cut the fudge into squares and then coat each square in sprinkles, crystallized sugar, or any other toppings.
