My kids love fudge and since it’s relatively easy to make, I make it for them from time to time. To make these fun for spring and Easter, I decided to cut the fudge out with my smallest flower cutter from this set. It made the most perfect little bite sized pieces of fudge.

Pastel m&ms have been in my local stores for the past few weeks now. I had picked up a package without having a plan yet for what I wanted to do with them. Making them into little bunnies seemed like the right thing to do, and they were perfect for pressing into the fudge. Simply use one m&m for the bunny head cut another m&m in half and use the two halves for ears and you’ve got a cute bunny! These could also be pressed into cookies, brownies, blondies, or even added to frosting on cakes. If you plan to add them to cookies, brownies, or blondies, add them right after baking.

The lavender powdered sugar adds a really nice flavor if you like lavender! You can definitely use plain powdered sugar if you want to make a traditional fudge. If you choose to shop Whipzi naturally flavored powdered sugars, they offer my audience a discount code, SARAH15, to save 15% on their site!

I hope that you decide to try these out! They are definitely one of the quickest and easiest Easter dessert recipes on my site. For another bunny-themed dessert option, check out these shortbread cookies!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c unsalted butter

  • 1/4 c condensed milk

  • 1/2 c unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 pinch fine pink Himalayan sea salt

  • 1 lb lavender flavored powdered sugar (see notes)

  • Optional
  • 1/4 c pastel m&ms for the bunny shapes

Directions

  • Prepare a pan. You can either use a 9 in round cake pan or a 9×9 square pan. Line the pan completely with parchment paper so that the parchment hangs over the edges. This way, you can lift the fudge out when done.
  • Add the butter and condensed milk to a pot and heat on low until the butter is melted.
  • Remove the pot from heat and add the rest of the ingredients. I didn’t add the entire 1 lb of powdered sugar. I added most, but reserved some because I didn’t want the mixture to be too dry. I recommend adding a little over 3/4 lb of powdered sugar and mixing it in. If the mixture is still wet, add more powdered sugar. If it mixes in and is no longer wet, you don’t need to add more.
  • Once the mixture is smooth, add it to your pan and allow it to set until firm. I didn’t use enough parchment paper and couldn’t lift my fudge out later. Don’t be like me.A 9 inch round cake pan with fudge in it. The fudge has pastel bunnies pressed into it using m&ms.
  • Once the fudge is firm, you should be able to lift it from the pan by the parchment paper, place it on a cutting board, and cut it. I didn’t use enough parchment and wasn’t able to get mine out without breaking it, so I cut it gently with cookie cutters and lifted each piece out. You can use small cookie cutters to cut the fudge, or you can just cut it into squares with a sharp knife.Close up look at fudge shaped like flowers on a white ceramic tray.

  • Serve fudge at room temperature and store the leftovers in an airtight container. Enjoy!

Notes

  • I used Whipzi lavender flavored powdered sugar for this. You can also use plain powdered sugar for a traditional chocolate fudge. I also didn’t use quite 1 lb. I added most of the bag and mixed it and because the mix was no longer wet, I didn’t add any more sugar. If you decide to shop Whipzi powdered sugars, you can use SARAH15 to save.
