You can make amazing fudge in just minutes with two easy ingredients: Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy Frosting and chocolate chips.

There’s a little gift shop down the street from our house that touts “fresh Colorado fudge”. It tempts me whenever I drive by. From time to time, I’ll stop and drop $10 on a tiny sliver of the stuff just to nix my chocolate cravings. If you’re like me—a fervent fudge lover on a budget—then buckle your safety belts because I’m about to turn your world upside down.

Homemade fudge is easy to make with Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy Frosting and a bag of chocolate chips!

No, really! Don’t believe me? I’ve got 5 different batches of homemade fudge sitting in my fridge right now, and I made them in just minutes. Here is a quick step-by-step tutorial on how you can make five fantastic twists on the fastest, creamiest homemade fudge around!

It all starts with two basic ingredients: Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy Frosting and chocolate chips. Easy!


Place the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl; zap in your microwave in 30-second bursts until melted.


Stir the frosting into the melted chocolate chips until smooth.


Press into a lightly greased 9x9 baking dish.


Decorate with candies if desired. Cover and refrigerate until firm, about 30 to 60 minutes. That’s it!
