Expert Tips

  • It’s important to work quickly when assembling this fudge because it sets up quickly. For best results, make sure you’ve got each color tinted to your liking and then go for it! If the fudge starts to harden before you’re done working, pop it back in the microwave for a few seconds.
  • For perfect marbling, here’s what to do: First, you’ll want to do this when the fudge is still warm and a bit of fluid, see above tip. Second, use a knife or bamboo skewer. Third, get in there! Make looping or curlicue patterns with your tool, until you are satisfied with the effect.
  • Gel food coloring is a favorite in the Betty Crocker Test Kitchens, because you don’t need to use much to get intense color. But if you have traditional food coloring at home, that’ll work just fine too.
  • Love the look of this fudge? You can customize the colors to match any season. Pink, purple and white would be a cute variation for Valentine’s Day. Why not go for a pastel trio at Easter?
