Cinnamon Sugar Fudge

Fudge is one of my favorite holiday desserts. I always make at least one batch during Christmas time, along with cinnamon roll cookies, sugar cookie truffles and eggnog cookies.

Today’s treat is nothing short of indulgent! After all, it’s that time of year when we all get to indulge a little more, right? Right.

For me, there are certain treats that the holidays just wouldn’t be the same without. Like fudge. I look forward to my grandma’s traditional peanut butter fudge every year. But you can count on me making this snickerdoodle fudge over and over throughout the holidays!

It’s fudge that tastes just like snickerdoodle cookies! Seriously, who doesn’t love snickerdoodles? (If you raise your hand, we probably can’t be friends. Wink.)  It’s rich and creamy with a little cinnamon sugar crunch on top. I promise you’ll love it!

5 Simple Ingredients!

  • White chocolate chips: High quality white chocolate will make all the difference! My favorite brands are Ghirardelli, Bakers or Guittard.
  • Sweetened condensed milk: This adds a creamy, rich and sweet taste.
  • Vanilla extract: A high quality pure vanilla extract will give the best flavor.
  • Cinnamon: You can’t have snickerdoodles without cinnamon! Feel free to use more or less, depending on how much you like it.
  • Sugar: This gets mixed with the cinnamon and is sprinkled on top of the fudge. For a good ratio, check out my easy cinnamon sugar recipe.

How to Make Snickerdoodle Fudge

I know we all get busy around the holidays, but you only need 10 minutes for this snickerdoodle fudge and just a few ingredients.

  1. Melt chocolate and milk. Melt the white chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk together in a saucepan over medium-low heat (stirring continuously).
  2. Add vanilla and cinnamon. Remove from heat once melted, then stir in vanilla extract and cinnamon.
  3. Pour into pan, then top with cinnamon-sugar. Pour fudge into a parchment-lined bread pan, then sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture on top.
  4. Chill and slice. Let chill in refrigerator for 2 hours, then cut into one-inch squares.

5 star review

Wow, pleasantly surprised! Very easy and no setting issues. I used the sprinkling of cinnamon & sugar topping sparingly. It was great. It was even better on day 2. A hit for the holidays!
