It all starts off with white chocolate. We go with white chocolate morsels that are available in most supermarkets.

Melt the chocolate with sweetened condensed milk. NOTE: Be sure to get sweetened condensed milk and not evaporated milk. Wondering what’s the difference? Read about that here.

Watch us show you how easy it is to make this amazing treat!


As we mentioned, this amazing fudge only has 5 ingredients in it!

White chocolate and sweetened milk are so good! Stir until nicely melted and combined.

Now, it’s time to get the snickerdoodle flavors going. By the way, have you tried our snickerdoodle cookie recipe? It’s so good!

But back to this amazing snickerdoodle fudge. Next, 1 tsp of ground cinnamon goes right into the pan.

And to really round out the flavor, we add a nice addition of vanilla extract.

Make sure to use good quality vanilla!

Oh, vanilla is so delicious!

Now, all you need to do is line an 8″x 8″ pan with parchment paper.

Carefully pour the fudge mixture into the pan. Don’t worry if the parchment paper doesn’t fit directly into the pan. As the fudge is poured in, it will smooth out and touch the sides of the pan.

EXPERT TIP: No need to grease the parchment paper. If you don’t have parchment paper, you can also use wax paper or foil. Lining the pan makes removing the fudge a snap.

Adding a nice layer of cinnamon sugar is the final touch.

Simply mix together one teaspoon of ground cinnamon with 1/4 cup of sugar, and you’re good to go.

Classic snickerdoodle taste!

Let the fudge completely cool before slicing.

We recommend cooling in the refrigerator for a couple of hours, but you can expedite things by placing in the freezer for about 20 minutes and then transferring to the fridge for about 30 minutes to an hour.

A pizza cutter makes cutting the fudge so easy! (But a nice large knife will work just fine, too).

Fudge is such a wonderful sweet treat during the holiday season.

Folks, when you bite into this amazing snickerdoodle fudge, you may never try another version again.

It’s that good!

  • 8" x 8" pan and parchment paper


  • 3 cups white chocolate morsels
  • 1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tsp cinnamon divided
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup sugar


  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the white chocolate with the condensed milk, stirring frequently. Once melted, stir in 1 tsp of cinnamon and then the vanilla.
  • Meanwhile, place a square piece of parchment over an 8"x 8" baking pan.
  • Pour the melted fudge into the pan.
  • Mix together the sugar with the remaining tsp of cinnamon and sprinkle over the top of the fudge.
  • Refrigerate until firm and completely set, about 2 hours.
  • Remove from the fridge and lift the fudge from the pan by grabbing the sides of the parchment paper.
  • Cut into squares. Store in airtight container. Enjoy!



If you don't have parchment paper, you can use wax paper, or foil.  If you place the fudge in the pan with no liner, be sure to grease the pan first. 
To expedite the cooling process, place in the freezer for about 20 minutes, and then refrigerate for another 30 minutes to 1 hour.
A pizza cutter makes cutting the fudge fast and easy.  However, a large knife works well, too.
If the fudge sticks to the paper, let it cool a little longer.  Even if it sticks a little, it should still peel away from the paper with some help from your fingers.
The fudge will stay fresh in an airtight container for up to a week to 10 days.  The fudge freezes nicely and will keep for up to 2 months (let thaw completely before serving).

    Hi guys! I’m going to try this today. I considered myself finished with Christmas baking until I saw this recipe. There is an error in the recipe, though–you have 1 tsp sugar that I assume should be vanilla. Gave you 5 stars even before making this because all your recipes are wonderful! And I’m making your cornbread sausage cranberry dressing later today (the cornbread is sitting out since yesterday 🙂 ). Merry Christmas!!!

    • Thank you so much, Rhonda! You are 100% correct and thanks for letting us know! 1 tsp vanilla extract should be listed in the ingredients (in place of the 1 tsp sugar). We’ve updated recipe. And woo hoo! We hope you enjoy the dressing. We LOVE it so much and let us know if you have any questions. Merry Christmas! We hope you and your loved ones have a beautiful holiday season! Kris & Wesley

  • Just saying in passing, the ingredients list doesn’t list Vanilla, but the method does, so I assume the 1tsp sugar should be 1tsp Vanilla Essence, with the sugar being the 1/4 cup measure….

    Dang it! I just got back from what I thought was my last trip to the grocery store before Christmas. Now I’ll need to make a quick trip for white chocolate morsels. (I got the rest of the ingredients.) You know, I don’t like chocolate fudge but this is right up my alley. Thanks, guys. And have a Merry, merry Christmas. Sherry.
