Two Ingredient Chocolate Frosting Fudge

Two ingredient chocolate frosting fudge is not only decadent and rich but only requires two simple ingredients.

The easy homemade fudge recipe combines chocolate chips and frosting for a dessert that you will want to make over and over again.

Chocolatey and Delicious Fudge

Frosting fudge cut up on a counter.

I was a little skeptical at first when I heard that it only took two ingredients to make fudge. And, you don’t need a candy thermometer for the simple recipe.

But, I tried it and it came out chocolatey and delicious. And, it takes about ten minutes to make it, other than refrigeration time.

The fudge is creamy, smooth, and soft when you sink your teeth into a bite of the luscious treat.

It’s a great dessert recipe for the holidays, and you can try different flavors such as chocolate, butterscotch, peanut butter, or white chocolate.

It’s also great to give away as homemade gifts.

There are so many ways to make fudge, other than this recipe.

Most fudge recipes are cooked on the stovetop with butter, evaporated milk, sugar, and marshmallow creme.

Cooked fudge always comes out phenomenal, but sometimes it’s nice to save money and make the chocolatey dessert a little faster.

Some of my favorite fudge recipes include Velveeta fudge (yep, it’s delish), five-minute fudge with sweetened condensed milk, or fudge made with cake batter.

What Do I Need To Make Frosting Fudge?

  • Cream cheese frosting
  • Chocolate chips

That’s it! Those are the only ingredients you will need. Talk about a wonderfully short ingredient list.

How Do I Make Fudge Out Of Frosting?

  1. Line an 8″ x 8″ dish with tin foil or parchment paper and spray the inside with non-stick spray.
  2. First, take the lid off of the frosting container and microwave for about 30 seconds.
  3. Carefully pour the frosting into a medium-sized bowl and set aside.
  4. Add the chocolate chips to another bowl and melt in the microwave in 30-second increments, stirring in between to help melt the chocolate.
  5. Combine the two ingredients and stir until combined.
  6. Pour the fudge into the lined dish and refrigerate for at least two hours.
  7. Remove the foil or parchment paper and slice the fudge.

An Easy Fudge Recipe

Cream cheese frosting in a bowl.

Start by microwaving the ready-made frosting and pouring into a medium bowl (microwave-safe bowl) and set aside.

The frosting will melt fast, so do not microwave longer than 30 seconds.

I used a medium bowl for the frosting with plenty of room for when I add the melted chocolate in a few steps.

Next, add the chocolate chips to a small bowl and microwave in increments of 30 seconds, stirring in between, until melted.

I usually only need to melt the chips for about one to one and a half minutes total.

Once the fudge sets up you can easily remove it with the tin foil or parchment paper.

This will make it easier to slice the fudge.

How To Store The Two Ingredient Frosting Fudge

Store the fudge in an airtight container or cover with some plastic wrap. It doesn’t have to be refrigerated and can be kept at room temperature.

If you refrigerate it it will be a little more of a firmer fudge.

You don’t have to refrigerate it. You can seal it up and leave it on the counter. Enjoy!

Hi Autumn,

What kind of frosting did you use? It shouldn't make a difference, but I am curious. Sorry it stayed oily. Did you use regular semi-sweet chocolate chips?

I was wondering why use a cream cheese frosting instead of a fudge type frosting? Wouldn’t the cream cheese frosting dilute the chocolate flavor? Or is it what gives the fudge a creamy taste? Thank you so much for the recipe. I look forward to making it!!!

You can actually use a fudge frosting, as well. Any of those should be fine and taste great. The chocolate chips help make it creamy, along with the frosting. I hope you love it!

This is my go-to fudge recipe now. It's rich and creamy and so very easy to make! The only change I've made is to use darker chocolate chips for a stronger chocolate flavor. Just a matter of preference. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Made it in Florida while visiting my son and his family last month. Sooo easy! Tastes like it was from an confectionary. I tried it again today and added walnuts after pouring half into the pan and put more on the top. Can't wait to cut into it, but I have to wait another hour and forty five minutes.
