This is absolutely incredible Creamy Chocolate Holiday Fudge!  It is perfectly smooth, creamy, chocolatey, decadent, and all-around enjoyable for a holiday dessert.

I wanted to try out a new Chocolate Holiday Fudge recipe for Christmas this year and I think I’ll start making this one for every holiday for years to come.  It is so good and incredibly easy to make.  It also looks pretty on my Christmas dessert trays when I bring them to all of the holiday parties!  I try to switch up what I bake every year so it doesn’t get too boring.  There are some tried and true cookies, desserts and fudge that I just can’t skip, but I like to add something new.

I think this Chocolate Holiday Fudge would be great to give as edible gifts to give away for the holidays or a housewarming present for someone.  It was so creamy and didn’t have that sometimes gritty sugary texture that some fudges have.  In my humble opinion, this is THE BEST fudge recipe around.  I did make some changes to the original recipe that I found, but was happy with the changes I made.  Sometimes I read reviews before I make a recipe and try to predict what would be the most useful changes to make per the recommendations that people give.  Usually my adaptations come out great!

Creamy Chocolate Fudge Holiday Recipe for Christmas party

Note:  You can add 1/2 cup of nuts to this if you would like!  I prefer it without nuts, but that’s just me.  Also, use different colored sprinkles to adapt to whatever occasion you are making this for.

You can also find more fudge recipes on my blog here!  You’re sure to find something that you love, including white chocolate variations and even one loaded with caramel.  Happy holidays!

    Fudge is high up there on the addiction list, I am known to eat a piece and then go back for 8 more. This looks great!

    I am SO bad at making fudge, candy — alla that. But I feel like I could do this! And if not, I could maybe just eat my errors. Beautiful recipe Ashley!!
