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.

  1. Lyn says

    Do I let cool before covering with Alfoil?
    Then leave to set on bench or fridge?
    I see it says put in fridge 1 hour before cutting.

    • Lisa Longley says

      You don’t have to let it cool completely before covering. I love sticking it into the fridge because it makes it easier to cut.

  2. Sharon says

    Can you add chopped nuts to this fudge?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Yes! That will work great!

  3. Roseann Tuck says

    Hey there! Is there anything you can substitute for the sweetened condensed milk?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hi Roaseann, I don’t recommend substituting anything. In fact, I highly recommend using Eagle Brand SCM, because it is the brand that is fool proof in this recipe.

  4. Robin says

    I tried fireball fudge. I followed recipe exactly. It was very tasty but I couldn’t taste the cinnamon from the fireball. Wonder what I did wrong.

    • Lisa Longley says

      I don’t think you did anything wrong. I think the sweetness of the chocolate just calms down that cinnamon taste. You can always add 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon to the recipe.

  5. Leanna Swierczek says

    Have you used Screwball whiskey in this recipe? I have a peanut butter fudge lover on my list!

    • Lisa Longley says

      I haven’t, but you could definitely do it following these same directions and just swapping the Fireball for Screwball. I do have a great Peanut Butter Fudge recipe as well.

  6. Dee says

    Have you ever made this with a block of chocolate (ambrosia)? If so, how many ozs? Just want to make sure if it’s true 8 ozs to 1 cup. Thanks

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hi Dee, I haven’t made this with block chocolate.

  7. Lindy says

    How do I get the recipes for all the different fudge.

  8. Doug says

    I made this last Christmas, it was a big hit and delicious. The second batch I made I used 24 Oz.-two 12oz bags of chocolate chips , the whole 14 Oz can of the sweetened milk and used 1/3 cup of the cinnamon whiskey. Turned out the same without having any leftover sweetened milk.

  9. Sharon says

    Hi I have a friend who absolutely loves fireball but I would like more of the fireball flavor in the fudge and is it okay to use dark chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate if I wanted to add more fireball to the recipe how much more would you suggest to get that sweet cinnamon taste

    • Lisa Longley says

      You definitely can use dark chocolate chips. I’m not going to advise you to use more Fireball because you risk it not setting then. You can experiment with a tablespoon or two more, but each time you add more you are risking that it will be too soft to cut.

  10. Janet says

    Someone said they used 2 12oz bags of chocolate chips, 1 14 oz can condensed milk and 1/3 cup Fireball. Would this go in an 8×8 pan or would it be better in a 9×13 pan?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hi Janet, it definitely wouldn’t fit in an 8 by 8 inch pan. So, I would assume a 9 by 13. But without trying it myself I can’t say for sure that is the correct pan size or that that combination will set.
