I have never made fudge before. Why you ask? I don’t like fudge. I have said before that I used to hate chocolate. I have grown to like some of it, but I usually don’t like chocolate by itself. So fudge has just never appealed to me. I prefer white chocolate over milk chocolate any day! So when I found this white chocolate fudge recipe AND it had cashews on the top…. this is my kind of fudge!! Making fudge was a lot easier than expected and I loved that it made a lot so that I can give it away for gifts. It was delicious! All of my favorite things in one fudgy yummy place!

White Chocolate Cashew Fudge

Making fudge was a lot easier than expected and I loved that it made a lot so that I can give it away for gifts. It was delicious! All of my favorite things in one fudgy yummy place!
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 24 Squares


  • 4 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 12 oz can evaporated milk
  • 2 cubes butter 2 sticks, 1/2 cup each
  • 2 12 oz bags White Chocolate Chips
  • 7 oz jar marshmallow cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 6-9 oz salted cashews


  • Start by putting the bags of white chocolate chips, marshmallow cream, vanilla, and 1 cube of butter in a mixing bowl  I used my kitchen aid and it made the process nice and easy.
  • In a saucepan compine the butter, sugar and evaporated milk. Bring to a boil on medium high heat and let it boil for 10 minutes. I kept stirring mine occasionally with a wire whisk.
  • Pour hot syrup over your chocolate chips, marshmallow cream, butter, and vanilla and whip in your mixing bowl until it is fully incorporated.
  • Pour this into a buttered 9x13. I also lined mine with parchment paper so that it would come out easily.
  • Press and evenly spread the cashews on top making sure they are secure so they won't come out when it is flipped upside down. Place in fridge for a few hours to set.
  • Once you are ready to cut, you can run the bottom of the pan under hot water to help release the fudge in the pan. Flip over on a parchment paper and cut them into squares.

  1. Be careful of the cooking time and temp. I cooked at medium low and was skeptical about keeping it on that long. It seemed to be carmelizing so I immediately took it off. The end result was grainy. I should have went with my instinct and took it off even sooner.

  2. Thank you for this recipe! We are hosting a cashew-cooking party and I just made this, it’s now in the fridge. So far it doesn’t look as white as the picture, but it smells delicious. Thanks again!

  3. I’m wondering if there would be any alternative (s) for marshmallow creme? I’m in newzealand and we don’t have that here I absolutely love the idea of white chocolate fudge with cashews . I would like to try this recipe. Would condensed milk or whipped cream work instead?:( – thanks

  4. Thanks for coming to our Strut Your Stuff Saturday link party. Your White Chocolate Cashew fudge looks so yummy! We hope you’ll be back soon! Have a Merry Christmas! -The Six Sisters

    1. Sorry I thought people would know what the term meant. I have gone ahead and changed it. It is 2 sticks and they need to be 1/2 cup each. 🙂

      1. The term “cube” is really only used in the Rocky Mountain states. No one I have spoken with (including myself) heard it used until they lived in Utah, or had simply never heard of it before!
