We all know I love an Easter recipe, there is no denying that. If something can be made with either Mini Eggs or Creme Eggs, I have most certainly given it a whirl. 

Because… Easter, a holiday celebrated with chocolate? What’s not to love?!

My latest creation is this quick Mini Egg Fudge recipe. It’s a variation on my super simple 2 minute microwave fudge, and it is the perfect Easter gift.

How I came up with this recipe

I first discovered this fudge recipe almost 2 years ago and I’ve got quite a fudge repertoire now if you fancy a look: Rolo Fudge, Creme Egg Fudge, Baileys Fudge, Peanut Butter Fudge, and Cookies and Cream Fudge

I discovered that we only need the microwave for all the heating we need and don’t need to involve any kind of baking or extra faffy steps. It’s just so simple. 

This is not technically real fudge (where you boil sugar, condensed milk and butter). It’s a shortcut version, but honestly? I think it is every bit as good.. If not, dare I say it, better. 

The chocolate sets the fudge and the condensed milk adds the sweetness and texture.

The world is your oyster with all the different flavours of fudge on offer, and I love to make things like this at the end of the school term to give to teachers, classmates or friends instead of an Easter egg.


Mini Egg Fudge Ingredients

  • White chocolate – I used my favourite Callebaut chocolate for this recipe. This chocolate is just amazing, it melts so well and really makes a difference to any recipe. When you buy it in bulk (1kg bags at a time) from Amazon it works out to about the same price as supermarket chocolate. A good investment I think as it really does make SUCH a differences
  • Condensed milk – Make sure you’re using condensed milk and NOT evaporated. See notes below on this
  • Cadbury’s Mini Eggs – Half of the quantity will be used in the fudge mixture and the other half will be pressed on top
  • Vanilla extract – This is optional, but it’s a lovely flavour addition. I use this one

How to make Mini Egg Fudge

Mini Egg fudge mixture in a glass bowl, not set for step 2 in the process.

1. Add your milk and chocolate in a bowl together and put in the microwave for 30 seconds. Do this 2 or 3 times until well melted and mixed, then beat really well. Mix in some Mini Eggs and pour the mixture into a lined dish.

2. Chop up the remaining Mini Eggs and press them into the fudge mixture, ensuring you spread them evenly so each finished piece has at least one on! Refrigerate overnight and there you have it!

Hint: You can cook this in a microwave or a slow cooker (see tips below). Of course it’s SO much quicker in a microwave though.

QUICK TIP: Crush the Cadbury’s Mini Eggs using the bottom of the tin of condensed milk to WHACK them!


Substitutions

  • Chocolate – I used white chocolate in the fudge this time to give a sweet creamy flavour. You can also use milk or dark chocolate if you prefer, or half and half works really well too
  • Other flavours – This recipe is great as a basis for other flavours of fudge – you could remove the mini eggs or add extra flavourings if you’d like

Storing

This Mini Egg fudge is kept stable by being chilled. Keep it in the fridge until you need it and if you’re giving it away, suggest that the lucky recipients keep it chilled too. 

It should stay fresh for around 2 weeks. It will go really quite firm, so just let it soften a little before eating.

You can also freeze your Mini Egg Fudge Wrap your fudge in baking paper and then foil before freezing. You can keep it like this for 2-3 months.

Top tips

Line the tin

Make sure that you do use baking paper (or parchment as it’s sometimes called) to line the tin. (I like this Bacofoil Baking Parchment one.)

Type of tin

Use a fairly small dish to get a nice, deep fudge. (I like this Masterclass 23cm tin.)

Gifting the fudge

I pack the pieces of Mini Egg Fudge, fresh from the fridge, into little bags like these cellophane bags. It adds a special something to make them feel like a real gift.

Cooking in the slow cooker

You can also make this Mini Egg fudge in your slow cooker or crock pot. The timing will depend on your particular slow cooker, but as soon as it is thick and silky smooth looking, it’s ready.  

If your fudge looks like it’s a bit lumpy or splitting, you can resolve this by giving it a really good beating with a wooden spoon. It should soon come together again.

Cutting

If the slab is too hard to cut straight out of the fridge, allow it to come to room temperature for 30 minutes. Be careful when cutting it may be very hard!

FAQs

Can you use evaporated milk instead of condensed milk?

Unfortunately you simply can’t substitute the condensed milk for anything else. While you could use evaporated milk in place of milk in many situations, evaporated milk and condensed milk are completely different.

Evaporated milk is condensed milk without added sugar, and has an entirely different thickness and texture.

Do you have any other Easter recipes?

I do! Try my Creme Egg Brownies, Creme Egg Rocky Road, Mini Egg Cheesecake, Creme Egg Cheesecake, Easter Bark or Easter Chocolate Cake

Follow my Easter Lunch Meal Plan here for main course options too!

Help! My fudge is very sticky!

If the fudge is very sticky, cut it up and then return to the fridge on a plate or board lined with baking paper, separating the pieces a little so that the air can get to them. This can help to ‘dry’ the pieces out a little.

    I made these to take to my parents on Easter Sunday. They went down a treat! I used 400g of white chocolate and that seemed to work well for me.
    I wonder if there is anything that would work as well instead of mini eggs for other times in the year? 🙂

    1. Hi Emma, so pleased it went down well! Yes, there’s a couple more recipes on this site, if you search for fudge. I also do it which chocolate orange at Christmas which is LUSH! x

  2. Amazing recipe, I made with mini eggs first and made with crunchie last night! Both so good! Thanks for the recipe 😊

  3. Ive just made this with a mix of leftover smarties mixed in and mini eggs on the top and it looks delicious. Hoping to save some for easter. Can it be frozen?

    1. I’ve never tried freezing if I’m honest, but I’m sure it would be okay, ALTHOUGH it keeps very well in the fridge! Hope you enjoy 🙂
