All you need is black magic—okay, a microwave—to conjure up a batch of skull-shaped fudge rounds. No standing or stirring at the stovetop means you can spend more time working on your Halloween costume. This recipe sticks to a simple black and white color scheme, but you can get creative and use other common Halloween colors like purple, orange, or yellow to really make the skulls pop.


  • 1 pound white chocolate chips
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup black sprinkles (or sparkling sugar; more as needed)
  • 1 cup chocolate candy coating

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Prepare a 9x13-inch pan by lining it with aluminum foil and spraying the foil lightly with nonstick cooking spray.

  3. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the white chocolate chips, condensed milk, and salt.

  4. Microwave the bowl on high for 1 minute, then stir with a spatula. If the white chocolate chips are not completely melted, return the bowl to the microwave and heat for another 15 to 30 seconds, then stir until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

  7. Let the fudge set at room temperature for 2 hours, or in the refrigerator for 1 hour, until it is firm. Using the foil as handles, lift the fudge off from the pan, then use a round cookie cutter to cut it into 2- to 2 1/2-inch circles. You should get 16 to 18 rounds from this recipe, depending on the exact size of your cutter.

  8. Pour the black sprinkles or black sparkling sugar into a bowl and roll the edges of each freshly-cut fudge circle in the sprinkles. If you wait to roll them until later, the sprinkles won’t adhere as well and you’ll need to brush the sides with a bit of melted white chocolate to make them stick.

  9. Melt the chocolate candy coating, then pour it into a paper cone or plastic bag. If using a bag, cut a tiny hole in the corner so the chocolate flows out the bottom. Decorate each fudge round with a skull face.

  • For the best taste and texture, allow them to come to room temperature before serving. Store the fudge rounds in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two weeks.
