  • 3 cups white chocolate
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 300 ml condensed milk, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Gel food coloring in blue, black, purple, and pink


  1. Melt Chocolate: Begin by setting up a water bath to melt the white chocolate. Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pot of simmering water, ensuring the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water. Stir continuously until the chocolate is completely smooth.
  2. Combine Ingredients: Once the chocolate is melted, remove from heat and stir in the condensed milk and butter. The heat from the chocolate will melt the butter, and the condensed milk will blend into the mixture, forming a smooth, creamy base. Stir in the vanilla extract for added flavor.
  3. Color the Mixture: Divide the fudge mixture into four equal parts, using separate bowls. Add a different gel food coloring to each part—blue, black, purple, and pink. Mix each portion until the color is vibrant and evenly distributed.
  4. Prepare the Pan: Line a square baking pan with parchment paper. This helps in easy removal of the fudge once it’s set and makes cleanup a breeze.
  5. Create Galaxy Effect: Pour the colored mixtures into the prepared pan in an alternating pattern. Do not mix too thoroughly; instead, use a skewer to gently swirl the colors together, creating a marbled galaxy effect. Aim for a natural, nebulous look, much like a swirling galaxy.
  6. Chill: Place the pan in the refrigerator and let the fudge set for at least 4 hours, though overnight is ideal for best results.
  7. Serve: Once the fudge is firm and set, lift it out of the pan using the edges of the parchment paper. Place it on a cutting board and cut into squares. The fudge should be smooth, creamy, and ready to melt in your mouth.

Tips for Perfect Galaxy Fudge

  • Chocolate Quality: Use high-quality white chocolate for the best taste and texture. Cheaper chocolates can affect the smoothness and flavor of your fudge.
  • Color Intensity: Adjust the amount of each gel food coloring according to your preference. More coloring will result in more vibrant colors, but be cautious not to overdo it, as it can affect the flavor.
  • Extra Sparkle: For an added cosmic effect, sprinkle edible glitter or colored sugar over the fudge before it sets. This will give your Galaxy Fudge that extra twinkling star-like appearance.

Galaxy Fudge is more than just a dessert; it’s a piece of art. Each batch is unique, with swirling colors that mimic the mysterious beauty of a distant galaxy. Enjoy creating and serving this cosmic confection, and watch it disappear as quickly as a shooting star!
