This Nutella Fudge is a SUPER fast recipe that your friends and family will ask for again and again!

The Nutella Fudge are cut into little cubes and stacked on top of each other.


I have a MAJOR mom brag moment coming. And if those make you want to barf a little, you can totally skip to the bottom for the fudge recipe. No hard feelings. But I have to say . . . this one is really sweet.

A block of the Nutella Fudge is being cut into long rectangular strips and then into little cubes.

So my oldest kiddo, Gavin, who will be 8 this December, recently decided all on his own that he wanted to do a fund raiser to gather blankets and food for the poor. Isn’t that amazing?? He felt so strongly about it, he was so fired up when I picked him up from school. His original idea was that we would put boxes at the end of our driveway where people could drop off food and blankets. I asked him if it would be okay if instead we asked our friends and family if they would be willing to donate money and then we would go and do some shopping. He was totally game.

We posted this picture on Facebook with the names of the two charities we would be donating to (Milwaukee’s Hunger Task Force and Hope House if you are interested). We are going to choose items from their wish list, like cans of soup, peanut butter, pancake mix, macaroni and cheese, art supplies, educational toys, diapers, formula, wipes, and we are going to go buy them on his birthday. And then we are going to make the deliveries the next day.

You guys. He’s already raised almost $200!

As amazing as I find Gavin’s idea to help those in need, I find everyone’s generosity even more amazing. People are coming forward with money, but also with these wonderfully kind words about what a sweet kid we have. And every time we get another email from someone saying they would like to donate money to his cause, we are so overwhelmed and we tell Gavin and he does a HUGE cheer!

When we finish his little fundraiser (BIG fundraiser?) and we purchase all the items, I promise to take pictures of him with them and I’ll share them here. Gah! Proud doesn’t even cover it.

Okay, just about as sweet as my kid is this Nutella Fudge. You guys this fudge is AWESOME. It comes together crazy fast, and it has the sweet flavor of Nutella but is also just wonderfully soft and chocolatey. I’ve had some people who have had trouble with my fudge recipes setting, and part of me wonders if people are mistakingly using Evaporated Milk instead of Sweetened Condensed Milk. Make sure with this that you don’t add too much Nutella and you don’t scrape the Sweetened Condensed Milk can. Both of those things could lead to it not setting. Or just go for it, a heaping 1/2 cup of Nutella and every last drop of SCM, and freeze it for 20 minutes before you go to cut it and store it in the fridge . . . if you are able to store it at all, I mean, SO GOOD!

Nutella Fudge

(tap # to scale)


  • 11 oz milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk NOT Evaporated Milk & see note
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • Line an 8 by 8 inch pan with aluminum foil.
  • Combine all the ingredients together in a medium saucepan over low heat, stirring consistently until the mixture is smooth.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into the pan. Refrigerate for four hours, cut and store in an airtight container for up to two weeks.


Make sure not to add too much Nutella, it should be just 1/2 cup.
Do not scrape the can of Sweetened Condensed Milk, doing this adds just slightly too much liquid and makes it harder for the fudge to set.

    Can this be frozen??

    • Lisa Longley says

      I think fudge in general freezes quite well, though I haven’t tried it.

  2. Jenny says

    I made Nutella fudge yesterday and left it in the fridge all night but it’s still not set I may of used a tiny bit more Nutella than I should. Can I put it in the freezer? Please help???

    • Lisa Longley says

      Oh no! I’m so sorry to hear that, Jenny! I think freezing it will make it so you can cut it, but it will still be very soft after sitting out of the freezer. You could scoop it, roll it, and dip it in melted chocolate to make truffles!

  3. ray Harrington says

    what if i wanted to add something to it such as rum could i add a little for flavor??? and if i wanted to make a peaunutbutter fiudge would i follow the same directions as if it were the nutella but rplace with peanutbutter???

    • Lisa Longley says

      I have several fudge recipes with alcohol, my Jack Daniel’s Fudge is the most popular. You can use that one to gauge adding alcohol. And I have a Peanut Butter Fudge recipe that is great.

  4. Mary A says

    I have always kept Nutella fudge in the freezer. It keeps at least a year. Don’t think I’ve had any left more than that.
    I make a lot to give away and always have about 1/2 a recipe left. I occasionally have a little piece for myself. That is why it lasts so long.

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m glad you enjoy it so much!

    4 stars
    Super easy to make and has a great creamy texture, but it does not have a strong Nutella flavor. Would try to make again :)

  6. Lisa says

    I would like 5o know if I can use dark chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate chips?

    • Lisa Longley says

      You can, but I have had others report that fudge can turn out oily and grainy when using dark chocolate.

  7. Claire says

    Hi! Does this have to be refrigerated?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Nope! You can keep it on the counter in an air tight container.

  8. Sandy says

    I haven’t used your recipe yet but did make fudge with Nutella and Baker’s unsweetened chocolate, thinking if I used sweetened condensed milk, nutella and chocolate chips the whole thing would be too sweet.

    I’ll try your recipe next.
