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.

    It’s so amazing that you still respond to comments 8 years after you posted this!

    I made this with slightly fat bloomed Ghirardelli chocolate melting wafers and Nutella that I got for free because they were “expired” (2-3 weeks past expiration date and both unopened, but my coworker still didn’t want it anymore) I wasn’t expecting the best results, but I didn’t want to waste them if I could avoid it.

    I doubled the recipe and used a splash of cold coffee instead of vanilla. It turned out just a tad greasy, but tbh I was expecting it. I simply blotted the grease gently with a paper towel, and it was perfect. It set in about 3 hours. It didn’t even last 8 hours before there were only scraps left, between my boyfriend’s family and my own. 10/10 would make again, and I recommend trying coffee instead of vanilla.

      The coffee trick is so interesting! I’ll have to try it!

    My daughter just made this but the fudge was extremely sticky and chewy, not like I remembered when I made it last. What did we do wrong?

    • Lisa Longley says

      It could be the brand of sweetened condensed milk, or if it wasn’t stirred enough before adding it.
