With just three ingredients and five minutes of your time, you can make this gorgeous, delicious swirled Nutella fudge! It's so simple, but the bold chocolate-hazelnut flavor and beautiful swirled pattern make the fudge seem much fancier than it actually is.

When you need something quick that's sure to impress, this is the recipe for you. It is a great choice for a quick fudge when you're in charge of sweets for a party. Both kids and adults are sure to love it.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cups (8 ounces) white chocolate chips
  • 1 1/3 cups (8 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/3 cups Nutella (or similar chocolate-hazelnut spread)

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Line an 8x8 pan with foil and spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray.

  3. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine the white chocolate chips and 2/3 cup of Nutella. Microwave the bowl in 30-second increments, stirring after every 30 seconds to prevent overheating. Continue to microwave and stir until the chips are totally melted and your mixture is completely smooth.

  4. In a separate bowl, combine the semi-sweet chocolate chips and the remaining 2/3 cup of Nutella. Microwave and stir as you did previously until the semi-sweet chocolate bowl is melted.

  5. Place alternating spoonfuls of the light and dark chocolate mixture into the prepared pan. You don't have to worry about being neat or precise, just try to alternate colors to get a good mix of light and dark throughout the pan.

  6. Take a knife or skewer and briefly twirl it through the pan, creating swirls of color and mixing up the chocolates. Don't swirl too much, or your colors will become muddy and blend together.

  7. Refrigerate the pan to set the fudge, for about 2 hours. Once set, lift it from the pan using the foil as handles, and cut it into small 1-inch pieces using a large sharp knife.

  8. Serve and enjoy!

Tips

  • Store swirled Nutella fudge in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

  • For the best taste and texture, let it sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes before serving.

  • If you have a little time, consider making a homemade version of Nutella. The recipe uses hazelnuts and dark chocolate and it's not as sweet as the commercial brand. For some people, it may work out better in this fudge.

  • If you do not have a microwave, you can melt the chocolate using a double boiler on your stovetop. All you need is a saucepan and a glass or metal bowl that fits inside it.

Variations

  • You can change this recipe up by substituting other spreads in place of the Nutella. Tiger fudge, for instance, uses peanut butter, and cookie butter swirled fudge is equally tempting. Another option is chocolate-almond butter.

  • It's also as easy to make more of a traditional fudge with Nutella. The recipe adds marshmallow cream and you can top it with toasted hazelnuts if you like.

  • Another fun swirled recipe, you can also make root beer float fudge. It would look fantastic next to the Nutella swirls on a dessert platter and give guests the option of a nut-free sweet.
