  • Sugar: 3 cups
  • Unsalted Butter: 3/4 cup
  • Half and Half Cream: 2/3 cup
  • White Chocolate Chips: 12 ounces
  • Marshmallow Creme: 7 ounces
  • Food Coloring: Pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple
  • Rainbow Sprinkles: for topping


Cook the Fudge Base:

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, butter, and half and half cream.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly to prevent burning.
  3. Once boiling, continue to cook and stir for 4 minutes, ensuring the mixture stays at a rolling boil.

Mix in Chocolate and Marshmallow:

  1. Remove the saucepan from the heat.
  2. Immediately add the white chocolate chips and marshmallow creme to the hot mixture.
  3. Stir vigorously until the chocolate and marshmallow are completely melted and the mixture is smooth.

Color the Fudge:

  1. Divide the fudge mixture evenly among several bowls, depending on how many colors you want to include.
  2. Add a different food coloring to each bowl, mixing well to achieve bright and distinct colors.

Layer the Fudge:

  1. Pour the first color of fudge into a lined or greased baking pan. Smooth it into an even layer.
  2. Carefully pour the next color on top, and repeat for each color, layering them gently to maintain distinct stripes.
  3. Use a knife or skewer to swirl the colors slightly for a marbled effect, if desired.

Chill and Set:

  1. Sprinkle the top with rainbow sprinkles for an extra touch of fun and color.
  2. Refrigerate the fudge until it is firm, typically about 2-3 hours.


  1. Once set, lift the fudge out of the pan using the lining. Cut into squares or bars.
  2. Serve as a delightful treat or gift wrapped in cellophane for a special occasion.


  • For clean, sharp layers, allow each layer to set slightly before adding the next.
  • To prevent the layers from bleeding into each other, do not press down too hard when adding new layers.
