Fun Variations to add to this Easter fudge recipe
Here's the deal with fudge. It's so versatile! This means that if you want to change things up a bit, go for it. It really won't alter the flavor too much and you can easily make it seem like you have a whole new fudge recipe as well.
For that reason, it's one of my favorite sweet treats to make. I love the idea of being able to take a recipe like this and just play with it, trying new add-ins, different colors, and even toppings. It's one of those recipes that can be transformed into dozens of variations with a little creativity.
Some simple ways that you can easily change up the fudge are:
- Change the color of sprinkles
- Add in chopped nuts
- Mix in sweetened coconut
- Drizzle caramel or hot fudge on top
And those are just a few of the fun ideas! Fudge is very forgiving in most things so as long as it's a flavor and taste that you love, there's a good chance it's going to taste great in the fudge recipe.
What happens if the fudge doesn't set?
There might be a few reasons for this. The first is that you didn't give it long enough in the fridge. 6 hours is really the minimum but overnight is going to be your best bet. The longer you leave it in the fridge, the more that it's going to set up and be ready to eat.
The other reason is that maybe the ingredients didn't get combined or stirred quite properly. Make certain you're following the recipe below to make the best fudge possible.
