  • All-Purpose Flour: 1 cup, spooned and leveled
  • Plain M&Ms: 1 ½ cups, divided (1 cup and ½ cup)
  • Plain Mini M&Ms: 1 cup, divided (½ cup and ½ cup)
  • Salted Sweet Cream Butter: ½ cup, softened
  • Granulated Sugar: ¼ cup
  • Light Brown Sugar: ⅓ cup, packed
  • Half and Half: 2 tablespoons
  • Pure Vanilla Extract: 1 teaspoon
  • Salt: ¼ teaspoon
  • White Baking Chips: 1 ½ cups (good quality, such as Ghirardelli)
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk: 14 ounces


  1. Prepare Flour: Place flour in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Allow to cool completely, then sift to remove clumps.
  2. Prepare Baking Dish: Line an 8×8-inch baking dish with parchment paper and lightly spray with nonstick spray.
  3. Freeze M&Ms: Add 1 cup plain M&Ms and ½ cup mini M&Ms to separate Ziploc bags and freeze.
  4. Cream Ingredients: In a medium bowl, using a mixer, cream together butter, sugars, half and half, vanilla extract, and salt until well combined.
  5. Mix Flour: Reduce mixer speed to low and add cooled flour, mix until just incorporated.
  6. Melt Chocolate: In a microwave-safe bowl, combine white baking chips with sweetened condensed milk. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring between each, until smooth.
  7. Combine M&Ms and Dough: Stir frozen M&Ms into the butter and flour mixture. Then, stir in the melted white chocolate mixture until combined.
  8. Assemble Fudge: Transfer fudge mixture to prepared dish, spreading evenly. Sprinkle remaining M&Ms on top and press gently into the surface.
  9. Chill: Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  10. Cut and Serve: Slice into 25 squares before serving.


  • Flour Safety: Ensure the flour is microwaved to eliminate any pathogens since it’s used raw.
  • M&M Colors: Freezing the M&Ms prevents them from bleeding colors into the fudge.
  • Cutting Ease: Scoring the fudge before chilling makes cutting easier.


Q: Can I use other types of chocolate chips? A: Yes, you can use milk or dark chocolate chips, but the flavor and texture will vary from the original recipe.

Q: How long will the fudge keep? A: Store the fudge in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week for best freshness.
