If you love whoppers you have to make this Easter Egg Fudge! So easy, so irresistible!


I decided this post needed a face lift and a video, but what I wrote originally is still here. I still love Cathy just as much now as I did in 2013

Have I told you about my friend Cathy?

Cathy is all sorts of awesome, but let’s just highlight a couple parts of her awesomeness.

1. She does a dead on impression of a giraffe. I would post a picture, but given that she also has a blog and a significant amount of photo evidence of her own, I’m going to just leave it up to your imagination.

2. She loves my husband. (Not in a weird way.)  I read somewhere that part of having a happy marriage is having friends who will despise your husband when you are angry with them, but let it all go once you have. Cathy is awesome at this.

3. She’s an amazing mom. From the time Gavin was a little tiny baby, I have called her in my most horrible parenting moments, and she is there with a calm and empathetic ear. I’ve seen her lowest lows as a mom, and I can tell you that she is still amazing and loving with her girls. I am so lucky to have her to talk to about the craziness that motherhood brings.

4. She doesn’t hold a grudge. Once she’s done being mad about something, she’s really done. And as someone who is still seething about that time in fifth grade when one of my friends made a rude comment to me, this is something I truly admire.

5. She is just an all around amazing friend. I realize that this sounds super cheesy, but hear me out. A few years ago I planned a surprise birthday party for Cathy. It was so much fun to plan, and one of the reasons was because almost everyone RSVP’ed yes, and they all wanted to know what they could do to help. And it’s not just that Cathy befriends awesome people, it’s more that all these people love her so much that they really wanted to celebrate her, and they really wanted to help make a perfect party for her. Not everyone can say that. Not everyone would have a heard of people wanting to come and celebrate a milestone birthday party. But Cathy has been such a good friend to all these people that they couldn’t wait to celebrate her.

{I could go on and on, but I’m already running the risk of sounding a bit stalkery.}

Recently I went to read her newest blog post over at Lemon Tree Dwelling and found this:

And did I think about all the things I love about Cathy? Nope. I quickly shot her off an email with a picture of my fudge and the words, “Damn you, Cathy.”

It’s good to pick friends who are better people than you.

Three things you should know:
1. Cathy had absolutely no idea I was making this recipe. As a matter of fact, she mentioned to me that she was photographing malted milk ball fudge, but I was too busy thinking about what I need to tell her to pay attention. Oops!
2. When you read the post, I’m the jerk friend who blew the whistle on the Pyrex incident.
3. Great minds think alike.

Love you Cathy!

Easter Egg Fudge

(tap # to scale)


  • 1 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 3 tsps vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • a drop or two of red food coloring
  • 11 oz package of Mini Robin Eggs Whoppers


  • Crush the Whoppers. I used a food processor, but you could just keep them in the bag and take a rolling pin to them.
  • Line a 9×9 pan with aluminum foil.
  • Combine the sweetened condensed milk and white chocolate in a bowl and microwave for 2 to 3 minutes. White chocolate is sensitive, so make sure you don’t cook too long. Start by cooking on the shorter end of that time frame, and add time until it is almost melted. Stir to combine.
  • Add in the vanilla and almond. Add a drop or two of red food coloring to make it a sweet pink color. Stir in the eggs and pour into the pan. Let set several hours in refrigerator.
  • Optional: Reserve 1/2 a cup of the crushed eggs and press it into the top of the fudge immediately after pouring.

    I tried to make this fudge last night and it hasn’t turned out right it’s not hard and its been in the fridge all night need a help!!!!

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m so sorry Sam! There is almost nothing more frustrating for me than when a recipe doesn’t turn out. Not being there, it’s hard for me to tell you what went wrong. I recently had a reader let me know that different brands of sweetened condensed milk can act very differently in recipes. So, I will tell you that I almost exclusively use Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk in my fudge recipes and I never have a problem when combining it with at least 3 cups of chocolate chips.

  2. Jennie @ TheHousewifeModern says

    This looks great. I went and pinned it immediately to my “Easter & Carrot (cake, etc.)” board. (Though I’ll have to sub M&M’s for whoppers as they aren’t my favorite…but substituting is half the fun!)

    p.s. I found your post via the “Baking ChocolaTess” roundup post.

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hi Jennie! I love this fudge recipe because you can do SO many different things with it!

  3. Helen says

    I made this fudge yesterday and it did not come out at all. I followed the recipe exactly and used Eagle Brand milk, but the fudge was very sticky and had not set properly. I’ve tried different fudges in the past and this is the first time a recipe flopped on me.

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hi Helen! I’m so sorry that this recipe didn’t work out for you. There aren’t a whole lot of things that frustrate me more than recipe fails. This recipe follows the basic recipe for fudge that I always use, and it always works for me. Without being there with you, it’s hard for me to know what went wrong. Again, I’m really sorry it didn’t work for you.

  4. Christina says

    Hi! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe! I’d love to make this for my family for Easter. They’re gonna love this! Actually, I think I will be making this more often than just for Easter! Lol! ????

    • Lisa Longley says

      Thanks Christina! And yes! Just think of all the different things we can pop in the fudge . . . ????

  5. Laurel Eden says

    The fudge worked perfectly for me. I did use colorless vanilla extract as suggested and got a pretty pink fudge. It’s fun and delicious. Thanks!

      I’m glad you liked it!
