Milky Way Fudge Ingredients

Milky Way Fudge raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 (14-ounce) can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 5 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2½ cups Milky Way Simply Caramel fun-size candy bars (10.73-ounce bag), sliced into thirds (divided into 1½ cups and 1 cup)
  • 2 cups halved Milky Way minis (divided into 1 cup and 1 cup)

PRO TIP:

You can chill the Simply Caramel and mini Milky Way bars in the refrigerator for 10 to 15 minutes before cutting them into pieces. You can keep the sliced candy in the fridge before you add it to the fudge. This will help ensure the caramel does not ooze out prematurely before slicing the fudge.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

CHOCOLATE CHIPS: Milk chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips could also be used in this delicious recipe.

How to Make This Milky Way Fudge Recipe

STEP ONE: Line a 9×9-inch square pan with aluminum foil. Spray with nonstick cooking spray, and set it aside.

STEP TWO: Add the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and heavy cream to a 2 to 3-quart heavy-bottomed saucepan over low heat. Stir constantly until the chips are melted and smooth.

    I would use milk chocolate! Not a fan of dark chocolate! And I have made fudge before, but not for a long time now.

    I would use dark chocolate and maybe add almonds or Twix bars. Yes, I always do cookie or “sweets” exchanges around Christmas time with my neighborhood or moms groups. 😀

    Milky Way is my favorite candy bar. I am crazy about this recipe for fudge but I think I’m going to use the Milky Way Midnight. I love dark chocolate and the mix will be awesome. I am also going to make it with Snickers for my sister.
