With its enchanting swirls of pink and purple, this fudge is not only delicious but also visually appealing, making it a perfect treat for parties, gifts, or a sweet indulgence at home.


  • 3 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons cotton candy flavoring
  • Pink and purple gel food coloring


  1. Prepare the Ingredients: Line an 8×8 inch square pan with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
  2. Melt the Mixture: In a medium saucepan over low heat, combine white chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and butter. Stir continuously until the chocolate and butter are completely melted and the mixture is smooth.
  3. Add Flavor and Color: Remove the pan from heat. Stir in the cotton candy flavoring. Divide the fudge mixture into two bowls. Add pink gel coloring to one and purple to the other. Mix thoroughly until the colors are vibrant.
  4. Create the Swirl Effect: Pour the pink fudge mixture into the prepared pan, then add dollops of the purple mixture. Using a knife or a skewer, gently swirl the purple fudge into the pink to create a marbled effect.
  5. Chill and Set: Refrigerate the fudge for at least 2 hours or until firm. Once set, lift the fudge out of the pan using the edges of the parchment paper and cut into squares.


  • Use gel food coloring for more intense and vibrant colors without altering the texture of the fudge.
  • Ensure all ingredients are well combined before adding the flavorings and colors to avoid any lumps.
  • Store the fudge in an airtight container in the refrigerator to keep it fresh and maintain its creamy texture.


  • Can I use regular food coloring instead of gel? Gel food coloring is recommended for its vibrant colors that do not alter the fudge’s texture, but liquid food coloring can be used in a pinch—just be cautious with the amount to avoid making the fudge too liquidy.
  • How long can I store the fudge? The fudge can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
