Ever wonder what is the best fudge recipe ever? The answer of course is one with booze in it! It’s like my favorite pastime, combining chocolate and whiskey into delicious fudge. First with creamy Irish Whiskey in this Bailey’s Fudge, and then with straight up whiskey in my insanely popular Jack Daniel’s Fudge recipe and now with cinnamon whiskey in this Easy Fireball Fudge Recipe.

(Pssst . . . I would be remiss if I didn’t also mention my Chocolate Amaretto Fudge for those who aren’t into whiskey.)

There are many different ways you can make fudge, but the best way to make easy fudge is with condensed milk and just a few other ingredients.


  1. Chocolate chips (you could also use white baking chips depending on what flavor you making)
  2. Sweetened condensed milk (make sure to grab the condensed milk and not the evaporated milk!)
  3. Vanilla extract


In this super easy Fireball Fudge Recipe, we cut back on the amount of sweetened condensed milk we’d normally put in and increase the amount of chocolate chips we are putting in to make sure that the fudge sets. While each piece of fudge doesn’t have enough Fireball Whiskey in it to give you a buzz, it has plenty to give that great flavor everyone loves while still allowing your fudge to set.

If you like your fudge but don’t want any whiskey in there for the kiddos, try some of these versions.

Easy Fireball Fudge Recipe

Serves: 25 pieces
(tap # to scale)
Prep: 20 minutes
Total: 20 minutes
This easy Fireball Fudge Recipe is the perfect recipe to make for the holidays or anytime!  An easy fudge recipe made with condensed milk and a few other ingredients that is perfect for the cinnamon whiskey lover in your life!


  • 3 1/2 cups chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate chips)
  • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk (or 8 fluid ounces) see note
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup Fireball Whiskey (or any cinnamon whiskey)


  • Line an 8 by 8 inch baking dish with aluminum foil.
  • In a large bowl melt the chocolate chips in the microwave according to package instructions.
  • Stir in the sweetened condensed milk, the vanilla extract, and the whiskey.
  • Pour the mixture into the baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil and let set completely (about four to eight hours). Refrigerate for 1 hour before slicing. This last step of refrigeration is optional, but makes the fudge slice nicely.
  • Enjoy and store in an airtight container for two weeks.


Make sure you measure this out. A can from the grocery store is 14 oz and more than you need. Also make sure you are buying sweetened condensed milk and not evaporated milk as they are on the shelf next to each other and that is an easy mistake to make.

    I used this recipe last year for the holidays. I made Fireball, Jack, Red Stag, and Jager. I added chopped pecans and it was a hit with everyone.

    • Lisa Longley says

      So glad you liked it!

  2. Bambi says

    Can I substitute CHOCOLATE Sweetened Condensed Milk for regular?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I haven’t tried that, but I would LOVE to hear how it goes!

  3. Alex says

    Stupid question: how many bags of chocolate chips would it take to equal 3.5 cups?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I think a traditional bag is 24 ounces and this recipe calls for approximately 22 ounces. So one should do it.

  4. Sally DAmico says

    I decided to try this using the new Bailey’s Irish Cream chocolate chips and substituting vodka for the Fireball and it is fabulous… I did that today and yesterday, I made it Fireball style…

  5. Sharon says

    My mouth is watering. Going to try this today!

  6. Deb says

    Could I use orange liqueur instead of whiskey to have the fudge taste like the smackable orange/chocolate “oranges” (Terry’s)


    • Lisa Longley says

      Yes! That totally makes me want to make that and post it now, lol!

    • Julie Saeed says

      Oh wow, now I seriously need to try that! I love those chocolate oranges and that would make for an amazing fudge! maybe even throw in some candied orange rinds :)

  7. Kasey says

    5 stars
    I’ve made this fudge with amaretto, espresso infused rum, cherry tequila and of course fireball. This year actually using some reese’s pb chips and then chocolate liquor along with the other favorites.

    • Lisa Longley says

      Gah, this is great, Kasey! Thank you for sharing! If you have any with the espresso infused rum left, send it my way!

  8. Pat says

    Have used this recipe with different kinds of liquor and liqueurs. Works every time. Especially like orange liqueur.

    • Lisa Longley says

      So glad to hear that, Pat!

      • Sarah W Miller says

        Can we use blocks of chocolate for this and how much ?

        • Lisa Longley says

          I haven’t made it with blocks of chocolate but you will need about 21 ounces. Cut it up and make sure it comes to 3 1/2 cups.

  9. Judy says

    I made this with dark chocolate chips and we loved it! Hubby asks for it again and again! Thanks for this easy recipe!

  10. June says

    What kind of adjustments would be needed to have 1/2 Cup of fireball?

    • Lisa Longley says

      You would need to double the rest of the ingredients and use a bigger pan. :) If you want it to taste more like Fireball and double the recipe, you might have the issue of the fudge not setting. You can risk it and then if it doesn’t set spoon it into truffles and dip them in chocolate.
