Holidays are all about desserts for me and the best kind are simple and easy to make. Just like this Christmas Tree Fudge, you can whip it up in no time and it comes out chocolatey, silky smooth, creamy, and filled with vibrant colors.
Holiday Sprinkle Fudge
This fudge is just so good and to die for! It has the best white chocolate flavor with a sweet and soft texture. The bright sprinkles in this recipe make this perfect for the holidays or to give as gifts to loved ones. Each bite makes it more addictive and you won’t want to stop eating it!
Key Ingredients You’ll Need
Chocolate: You will need white baking chips and vanilla almond bark for this recipe along with sweetened condensed milk to help with the consistency.
Food Coloring: You will need green oil-based food coloring to blend easily into the mixture.
Sprinkles: I like to use yellow star sprinkles or yellow sprinkles and holiday sprinkles for this recipe.
How To Make Christmas Tree Fudge
Step 1. Use parchment paper to line an 8×8-inch squared baking pan. In a double broiler, add 2 cups white baking chips, 8 ounces of vanilla almond bark, 1 can sweetened condensed milk, and salt and combine over medium heat until smooth and melted. Make sure to mix regularly before taking off the heat and pouring in the vanilla. Add the mixture to the pan and allow it to rest at room temperature for 4-6 hours or in the fridge for 2-4 hours. Slice into 16 pieces.
Step 2. When the fudge is ready, melt the almond bark in the microwave in 30-second intervals until smooth. If the chocolate has lumps let the heat melt it so you don’t burn it. Place 8 drops of the food coloring into the melted chocolate before placing it into a Ziplock bag with the corner snipped off. Drizzle the green chocolate over the fudge to make the tree beginning with the tip and going back and forth until you reach the bottom. The lines should gradually increase in length until you reach the base of the tree. Place a star sprinkle on top of the tree and sprinkle holiday sprinkles to act as ornaments. Serve and enjoy!

Christmas Tree Fudge
- Line an 8×8” square baking pan with parchment paper. Combine 2 cups white baking chips, 8 ounces of vanilla almond bark, 1 can sweeten condensed milk, and salt together in a double boiler. Heat over medium heat and melt until smooth, stirring regularly. Remove from heat and add the vanilla.
- Pour fudge into the prepared pan and let sit for 4-6 hours at room temperature or 2-4 hours in the fridge. Cut into 16 pieces. Once your fudge is set, heat 8 ounces of almond bark in 30-second increments until almost smooth. If there are a few lumps, use the residual heat to melt the chocolate so it doesn’t burn.
- Add about 8 drops of oil-based food coloring to the vanilla almond bark. Pour almond bark into a zippered bag and cut the tip-off. Drizzle over fudge to make a tree (start at the top and go back and forth with the drizzle – starting with small lines and getting bigger as you go to create a tree shape). Top with a star sprinkle and Christmas sprinkles on the tree!
