Nothing says “Happy Holidays” quite like a bite of dark, decadent chocolate fudge. But have you ever thought of adding a dose of sweet, fizzy Coca-Cola to your favorite fudge recipe? No, really!
Coca-Cola fudge might sound like something that belongs on the Island of Misfit Recipes, but trust us — this unique twist on traditional fudge will turn your “humbug” into a “heck, yeah!”
To make Coca-Cola fudge, you only need a few simple ingredients: condensed milk, marshmallow cream, chocolate chips and, of course, Coca-Cola! Find the full recipe here at The Life of Jennifer Dawn. You can also try a variation with walnuts, which can be found at Crayons and Cravings.
Or check out this sweet and fruity variation from Mom on Timeout. Trish makes cherry fudge with cherry gelatin, white chocolate and maraschino cherries, which she then tops with a delicious Coca-Cola chocolate frosting.
This recipe can be made in less than 15 minutes, but it looks absolutely decadent. With its pinky-red hues and cherry flavor, it’s the perfect color and flavor for the Christmas season.
Over at Engineer Mommy, Coca-Cola fudge is taken to the next level with the help of a sweet caramel drizzle. Don’t be fooled by how luxurious the end result looks: The caramel topping is made with just two simple ingredients, and even kids can help to drizzle the fudge by simply dripping the tines of a fork (which has been dipped in the melted caramel) over the top of the fudge.
Looking for something for your adults-only holiday party, or a special homemade present to please the adults on your gift list? How about “Jack and Coke” fudge, which is made with — you guessed it — Coca-Cola and Jack Daniels!
You can adapt this recipe from Wine and Glue for this very purpose. However, instead of using a full can of condensed milk, swap out part of the liquid for Coca-Cola (such as 1/3 cup of Coca-Cola and 2/3 cup of Condensed Milk, which is the ratio used in other popular Coca-Cola fudge recipes listed above).
If you know someone whose go-to cocktail is Jack-and-Coke, this fudgy treat will definitely bring a smile to their face!
