Sunday Offering: 3 Recipes for Leftover Fudge

I know it seems crazy, but with all the sweets that we have over every event during the holidays… we always have fudge leftover!

Leftover fudge, y’all!

I think because it’s just straight up chocolate it may get passed over for like a Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup or a Chocolate Covered Pretzel. Either way, it’s leftover. And as much as I want to eat it all… I can’t! So I came up with 3 ways to use leftover fudge. Easy, easier and easiest.

If you’re using the recipe I posted last week for Fantasy Fudge, this stuff will last at room temp for at least 3 weeks and in the refrigerator for up to 2 months. Meaning you have lots of opportunity to make these next few recipes!

For the easy recipe, I looked up a basic recipe for Chocolate Chip Muffins and then in place of the 1 cup of chocolate chips… I added 1 cup of chopped fudge!

Chop fudge into small pieces.

This turned out so good!! The fudge doesn’t stay in tact like a chocolate chip would so it melts into the batter giving you a butter muffin with bursts of fudgey goodness.

For an even easier use of leftover fudge… Fudge Brownies! Make a batch of your favorite boxed brownies… and then top with chopped fudge before baking! Bake as directed on the package… and have a huge glass of cold milk ready when these babies come out!

And now… for the EASIEST way to use leftover holiday fudge…

So so good and so so easy! Heat 1 and 1/3 cups of milk on the stove top or in the microwave. Drop a good size square of fudge into a mug and cover with hot milk. Stir until combined. Top with marshmallows or any hot chocolate accoutrement of your choice. This is so easy and DELICIOUS!

Honestly, I use 2 squares of fudge! But, you do you.

Hot Chocolate!!

If your fudge contains nuts, those little pieces will surprise you as you sip on this chocolatey bliss!

You guys… I hope you enjoy this weird week between Christmas and New Years. Eat all the leftovers and enjoy all the naps!!

I don’t know about you, but I’m always ready for a fresh start and a new year.

Happy Sunday, friends. Love y’all! Melissa
