This Strawberry Fudge is an easy no boil recipe that's made with a base of white chocolate. I've added strawberry flavouring and freeze dried strawberries for the strawberry element. It's basically impossible to get fresh strawberries to work in this kind of recipe, so I had to settle for flavouring. However, freeze dried strawberries are real strawberries and they also provide an intense hit of strawberry flavour! Plus, they look so pretty sprinkled on top of the fudge. I also coloured the fudge pink with some food colouring to make it look extra pretty. This would be such a cute gift for Mother's Day or Valentine's Day!
How to make Strawberry Fudge
In a pan on a low heat, melt the white chocolate and condensed milk together. Then stir in the sieved icing sugar, pink food colouring and strawberry flavouring.
Pour the mixture into a lined tin and sprinkle the freeze dried strawberries on top. Then put it in the fridge to set overnight.
Tips for making the Strawberry Fudge:
- The strawberry flavouring I used was by a brand called LorAnn. There are lots of different strawberry flavouring available so different brands will have varied strengths, so please read the instructions to find out how much to add to the mixture. Or add a little, then taste the fudge mixture and add more if needed.
- If you can't get hold of strawberry flavouring, you can add extra freeze dried strawberries and stir them throught the fudge.
- The pink food colouring is not essential, but it does look pretty!

Yum!!!! MUST make some strawberry fudge.....Love the colour.
I have been eyeing those freeze dried strawberries and raspberries and trying to come up with an excuse to use them! I love the idea of them on top of this amazing looking strawberry fudge! Yum! I wish someone would make this fudge for me! You have a lucky partner!
This fudge looks delicious, such a nice colour and looks so pretty with the freeze dried strawberries.
The fudge doesn't set and I've followed the recipe twice and still the same ,
Personally just a waste of my time and money
Hi David, I'm sorry to hear you've had trouble with this recipe. It absolutely does set as you can see from my photos. Can I ask, did you definitely use condensed milk? Sometimes people can mix it up with evaporated milk, and this would definitely affect the fudge setting.
How long do you have to cook the white chocolate and condensed milk mixture? Is there a temperature that has to be reached (i.e., 117C)?
Hi Tani, you just melt it all together on a low heat, once it is fully melted and combined you can take it off the heat. There is no temperature that needs to be reached. This is a no boil fudge recipe 🙂
Made this fudge today & it’s delicious all my family love it 😊
Can I use fresh strawberry puree instead of flavoring ?
Hi, no unfortunately not, it won't set with the extra liquid. You could stir freeze dried strawberries into the fudge to add a strawberry taste if you can't get hold of flavouring.
Does this actually need all that chocolate
Hi Katrina, yes! That's the recipe, let me know if you try it 🙂
I would love to make this but marshmallow creme isn't easy to come by in UK! Could I use melted marshmallows instead?
Hi Kat, what recipe is this for? I am from the UK 🙂
Hi .. I want to try this but what is the strawberry flavouring and where can you get this from please .
Hi Melissa, there is a link to a strawberry flavouring in the recommended ingredient and equipment section of this blog post 🙂
Beautiful Strawberry Fudge 🍓 First attempt at making fudge and will definitely be making this again. Thanks for the recipe!
Hello, from Canada here and our sweetened condensed milk comes in 300 ml/g tins. Not sure if you can answer this but if I make the recipe with amounts stated as is except for the milk, would this simply result in a firmer set? Or could I add 97 ml/g of heavy cream to make up for the missing amount without affecting the overall result too much?
Hi Christine, I've never tried this so I'm not sure what the results would be, but in most cases changing ingredient quantities and types means you won't get the same results! If you're concerned about wasting condensed milk, the good news is you can freeze it 😀
