Strawberry 2 Ingredient Fudge

This 2 Ingredient Strawberry Fudge has consistently been one of the most popular recipes on my site! It’s sweet and creamy and SUPER simple to make!

So Valentines Day is coming up.

We aren’t big Valentines people in our house.

Not that I don’t WANT Valentines stuff.

I mean, if my husband came home with flowers and chocolates and jewelry I certainly wouldn’t turn him away.

But the thing is, one of our kids has a birthday on Valentines, so I lose.


Valentines is now, “all about the children”…much like EVERY OTHER DAY OF MY LIFE!


So instead of romance, I get Star Wars Lego assembly and video games and instead of a candlelit dinner, I get kid’s choice, which many years has meant McDonalds.

I mean, can you imagine that they can choose any place to eat dinner and they choose McDonalds?

So, yeah, kids ruin everything.  Gah.


Moving forward,  remember a few months ago when I was all angry at the universe for keeping fudge secrets from me?

Well, the universe and I are officially BFFs again.

We made up.

Hugged, kissed and all that…

Together we made some fudge, some Strawberry Fudge.

Which would be perfect for giving to your sweet Valentine…I mean, if you are one of those couple’s who actually celebrates Valentines.

All you do is get yourself a can of Strawberry Frosting and a bag of white chocolate chips.

Melt the chips and stir in the frosting.

Spread it into a lightly greased or lined pan…

Make some pretty designs if you’re feeling fancy.

Now, if you want to get crazy, sprinkles some cute little hearts on top.  I think M&Ms would be good on top too…you know, chocolate and strawberries I hear is pretty romantic.

Pop it in the fridge for a bit and then cut it into squares.

Or hearts.

Or broken hearts if you’re feeling dramatic.

* Tip ~ use a cookie cutter for easier shape making.

Isn’t it pretty?

  1. 2 ingredient fudge is the only kind of fudge I will make!!! I am so happy to hear you and the fudge universe have made up because this is awesomeness!!! Love the swirled top!

  2. semaira z

    Wow! Can this really be that easy? Fudge and I have never been friends, but I’m literally slipping my shoes on to run out for some strawberry frosting, just so we can try to make up immediately lol!

  3. Nuuummm!! I LOVE strawberry flavored anything!! Im ight have to make this as an extra special teacher gift for my older son’s class 😉

    SOO stinking easy!

    1. Vicki

      I was just at Morrisons thinking about making this recipe. They have a few different flavours of icing that included packages of sprinkles! Worth looking again.

  4. Hehe I’m a Valentine’s Day baby too. Don’t worry, when your kid gets older he(?) will realize that couples may want to spend Valentine’s Day with each other and celebrate his birthday on a different day 😛

  5. So cute, and so easy too! It doesn’t get much better than that, does it? I have a question – I can never seem to find white chocolate chips at the supermarket – they are always just vanilla chips. Is that what you used? Or were they really white chocolate chips, and where do you get them?

  6. These are so darn cute and they look super easy to make. We’re not one of those couples that celebrates Valentine’s Day either but I think my co-workers might like them.

  7. Jeshie

    I Cant Wait To Try This!! Although We Dont Have Can’s Of Frosting Here, Can I Make My Own To Add? My Birthday Is Valentines Day And My Parents Never Celebrated It When I Was Younger Either Which Is Kind Of Sad!! My Partner Thinks Its Amazing Though Cos He Gets Presents On My Birthday!! Although Last Year He Brought Me One On His Just To Make It Fair 😛

    1. shelly

      Yes, I imagine that you could sub in homemade frosting, as long as it was a buttercream based frosting. A whipped cream based wouldn’t work so well!

  8. Adi

    HI Im not familiar with a ‘can of strawberry frosting’… is it the same as the strawberry frosting you would ice a cake with? Sorry – Australia may not have this product so as Id LOVE to make this Im trying to think of a solution… 🙂

      1. Tiffany

        Yeah in Australia its usually Betty Crocker instead of Duncan Hines however I think I’ve only seen white chocolate and brown chocolate. I might have to add some strawberry essence (if that exists?) and some pink food colouring

  9. So Cute !!!
    Hihihi I really enjoyed reading your post :O)
    Great fudge + You’re so right: “Valentines is now, “all about the children”…much like EVERY OTHER DAY OF MY LIFE!”

  10. Tammy T

    My son is also a V-Day baby – except he will be 14 this year so the baby thing may not apply. I highly recommend Chuckie Cheese on V-Day. It is always deserted. I mean who goes to Chuckie Cheese on Valentines!

  11. So unique! I’ve been inspired to feature your fudge in my Friday Food Fetish roundup and on Pinterest. I can’t wait to see what you come up with next and please let me know if you have any objections…

  12. Tabitha

    Looks amazing! I fell in love with your 2 ingredient pumpkin cookies so I am so excited to try this new 2 ingredient recipe. I’m thinking chocolate…yum!!!

  13. Love this, Shelly. Two ingredients-even better!!! We have fudged mines-I made my Valentine’s fudge last night and it failed. Miserably. I like yours waaaay better!

    1. shelly

      I think it would work, but I am not sure how well it would release out. Maybe you could freeze it in the silicon and then they would pop out easier 🙂 let me know if you try it!

  14. I have never seen fudge made like this but it sounds like it would work with any frosting. I am excited to try it.

    My birthday is Valentine’s Day. Growing up, it was always a horrible day to have a birthday because I couldn’t bring cupcakes to school because they were having a party. Now I guess it is my husband’s problem 🙂

  15. Su Murillo

    Shelly do you think that I could work with home made swiss meringue buttercream???
    I have some left over of a neopolitan cake that I made, and I would soooooooo love to make this fudge, neopolitan style.
    Also it looks so adorable and its SOOOOOOOO easy, thank you so much 🙂

  16. Just a thought, Valentine’s doesn’t have to be Feb 14th.
    Make it Feb 11th or Feb 20th…A Celebration of couplehood doesn’t have to be on the date as long as you both take the time to celebrate what brought the kids to the world in the first place 🙂 Unfortunately If we don’t say anything, Men will ignore anything they can get away with ignoring. Make it a point. Have Mc Donalds but then have a midnight picnic of Strawberries and bubbly in the living room after they go to bed. …Just a thought 😉

    By the way.. The Fudge…GENIUS !!!! I added dried Strawberries to it Wow!!! Awesome!

  17. Oh. My. Goodness.

    I put these in the teacher workroom last week and they were gone when I came back at nine a.m. They didn’t even last an hour.

    Sooooo flipping easy … I’m so glad that I can make fudge now!!!!

    Thanks so much for the great recipe — I’m starting to think of how to make it for each holiday — it’s so versatile!


      1. Mary

        Thanks. Maybe I didn’t let it chill enough. I am spending the day making things from your site. I used chocolate frosting for the fudge. It turned out great. I made the volcano cookies with chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter cookies. Now I am going to make the candy cane pretzel kisses. Thanks so much. I love your blog.

  18. Purty. Your swirly designs in the fudge make me want to play in the kitchen today. These would be great for a little girls princess party too, using sparkly sprinkles instead of hearts (or broken hearts).

  19. So, what do you think about Lemon Burst frosting? And shaping the fudge in egg or chick shapes for easter?!

    geez …. you can do unlimited things with this!!

  20. I told my husband the ingredients when I saw this pin on pinterest and he just came home from the store with both of them and a bunch of tullips!! He said, ” Hope This Makes Up for my mistakes this weekend!!”
    I am one happy stay at home mom right now!!! Thank you for the idea!!!

  21. caroline

    I got a question, I’m from the Netherlands and I’m really happy with you”re recipe.
    I only don’t understand what you mean with strawberry frosting. can i also see it as strawberry ice-cream?

    1. shelly

      By frosting I mean a butter or shortening based icing that you spread on top of cakes. They sell it here in the US in premade cans but you could use homemade frosting as well. I have a recipe for “vanilla buttercream” here on my site that you could use.

    1. Helena

      Hello 😀

      Go to Asda…they have tubs of Strawberry Frosting in the baking section – I just picked up a tub today after going around the other supermarkets yesterday 🙂 xx

  22. SusanM

    I’m wondering if it’s this recipe that caused my grocer to be inexplicably sold out of Strawberry frosting?? Picked up Cherry instead, and it’s in the chiller now. Couldn’t be easier, although my swirls didn’t turn out as pretty :(. Thanks for the recipe!

  23. Karen

    Don’t worry, as your kids get older, they’ll pick more and more expensive restaurants. We’ve gone from Sonic and McDonald’s to Outback and Red Lobster!

    Fudge looks delicious, by the way!

  24. Elizabeth

    Mmmmm, looks good!! I’m wondering if I can use choc chips instead of white, not a fan of white, I think I’ll try it =)
    I’m glad to see another Valentine day stolen by the kid, DS is a Valentine baby so there hasn’t been any celebrating of the holiday here for 9 years =) I wouldn’t change any of it though, best day to have a baby I think…

  25. WOW! That is genius! Thanks for sharing! How did you make your fancy design? Did you just run a toothpick back and forth? Love it! I don’t like chocolate so this is perfect.

  26. katherine marie

    THANK YOU so very very much for such an EASY, PRETTY and YUMMY Valentine’s idea. I just made them today and they only took 3 minutes to whip up!!!

  27. Dana

    Hi! I found this on Pinterest and I made it. However I made it with chocolate frosting and Reese’s PB chips (YUMMY). I found that the fudge was a little too soft for my personal liking and the flavor was a tad bold. I would suggest that if anyone uses that combo to add some white chocolate chips to help it harden and for some sexy fun, add macadamia nuts! Thanks for this idea and it tastes soooo good!!!

  28. Kasey

    This looks yummy. I have one allergic to chocolate so I am going to try this for her. BTW… I feel your pain, our baby (who will be 8 this year) is also a Valentine’s baby. Kids come first so out the door goes romance… We have spent 5 of the last 7 years at Chuck E Cheese!

  29. Keven513

    I AM SO DESPERATE!! I tried this recipe two times, and each time, there’s something wrong! Is it possible that I mix the chocolate chips and the frosting too long before stopping? When I put the frosting in the chocolate chips, it looks a little bit whipped. But than I continue mixing and it gets all weird. It looks greasy. And when I take it out of the fridg, it looksl ikes a sweaty cheese. Need help. Please! 🙁

    1. shelly

      That is honestly the oddest thing I have ever heard! Are you using the exact ingredients that I used? The correct measurements?
      Also, just stir the chocolate chips and the frosting together with a spoon until smooth and combined, there is no reason to over stir.

      1. I’m going to try this recipe shortly. I am no expert, but am wondering if perhaps the original poster bought the *whipped* strawberry frosting. I know when I was buying mine I noticed that one brand had whipped strawberry frosting. I would imagine that would make a difference in the outcome of the fudge. Just a thought. 🙂

    1. shelly

      Well, for this recipe you use the canned frosting, that’s what makes it so easy, but if you were wanting to make a homemade strawberry frosting instead I don’t currently have a recipe for a strawberry frosting that would work in this on my site yet. I have a strawberry swiss meringue buttercream, but I wouldn’t recommend that for this. Sorry.

  30. Catherine Kinsey

    Valentines Day is my anniversary and my husband loves strawberry anything:) This will be great to make for our special day as well as for our church project we began a few years back. We make homemade candy to sell for our fundraiser. We put 24 pieces in a box and it has gone over great in the past. Who wouldn’t like to get a box of homemade candy for a Valentines gift? Thanks for making up with the Universe! This is a great, easy project I can make with my grandkids too!

  31. Thanks for posting! I had to try right away and made one with chocolate chunks and chocolate fudge frosting, one with white choc chips and vanilla mixed with crushed Oreos… So good! I blogged about my experience and tracked back to you. Thanks again!

  32. Maggie

    Just wanted to tell you that we used this recipe in a children’s Valentine’s Day party class we did this weekend and it was such a hit! Really yummy and really easy! Thanks for thinking of it, you’re so creative!

    1. Crystal

      Hi, you didn’t have a problem w/ it melting? Did you take it right out of the fridge to the party or leave it sitting out overnight? Thanks! : )

      1. shelly

        I kept it in the fridge, but it sits out nicely for a while. The white chocolate holds it together nicely. I am sure, though, on a very warm day you will need to chill it

  33. Jan

    Oh, my! I’ve been to 3 stores and not one of them carries Strawberry Frosting. I was amazed. Will this work with Vanilla Confetti Frosting and the White Chips? Or will that be too much Vanilla. I even looked for Strawberry flavoring and all 3 stores didn’t have that either. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

    1. shelly

      It would work with any combination you would like! So strange you can’t find strawberry frosting…I guess everyone’s buying pink stuff!

  34. juli

    OMGosh! It is wonderful! I used white chips and fudge frosting – Food Lion was all out of the strawberry and vanilla. My daughter said it was a little too sweet for her … even though she took half of the pan home with her … I’m wondering how it would be with semi-sweet chips? Thanks so much for the recipe – I will continue using it!

  35. So, technically speaking, I need frosting and white chocolate? So, a person might be able to use Coconut Pecan frosting (for German chocolate cake) and Baker’s Squares? Hmmm…. intriguing

  36. courtney

    I made this today and I can’t get my DH and DD to stop eating it. 🙂 It is suppose to be for other friends and family for Valentines Day…I guess I will need to make another batch. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

  37. Staci

    I am SO excited to have found this recipe!! I was going to make strawberry and lemon fudge and mix them together since I couldn’t find a recipe for pink lemonade fudge. So instead of having to do all that work I bought a can of pink lemonade frosting that they started selling for easter (YAY!) and I’m making this instead! Seriously, THANK YOU!

  38. Amanda McEwen

    I just saw this on pinterest….I’m already planning to replace the icing with chocolate icing and adding in crushed walnuts…..YES! Thank you so much.

  39. PrincessDontRuinYourDinner

    I used this today for an Almond White Chocolate with the orange funfetti and with the help of a pumpkin cookie cutter they turned out so adorable! 🙂

  40. if you whisk the frosting first really well it doubles in size i found this out at the good food show. so will make money go further n make more just a little useful tip i found n thought id share.. it covers loads more cup cakes to if whisk it lots x

  41. if you whisk the frosting first it doubles in size so get twice as much to do cup cakes or this fudge found that little tip at good food show it really does to n thought id share.. after all anythin that gets more for money is good right x

  42. islandhopper11

    Simple and pretty, it is, but not much of a fudge taste. If you’re a fudge aficionado, you’ll either never make, or never make it a second time. I tossed the recipe.,

  43. kat

    just think if u can do the strawberry……u can also do same with the diffferent chocolates/choc chips….lemon cherry and also on some if u want to add more flavor add lemon flavoring or even strawberry flavoring my family and friends went crazy for these at christmas time

  44. Rebekah

    My mind (taste buds, maybe?) immediately went – LEMON!! Can you imagine this with lemon icing?? Oooohhhhh!!! Look out baking aisle, here I come!

  45. Oh my!I wrote my first blog post in years yesterday,so Im calling myself a newbie;) Im heading out to Asda tonight too.I wanted to give you another tip to make it even more “lazy”.You know how when you melt the chips in the micro you need to keep stopping to stir?

    Well if you put your chips in something like a mason jar and pop it in a crock pot, then fill the crockpot around the jar with water (dont get water in the jar or your chocolate will sieze).Turn your crockpot on and you can get on with whatever else you need to for half an hour whilst the chocolate looks after itself.

  46. Lorie

    My youngest has a Birthday 2 days after Valentine’s Day, and we still celebrate! My Husband gets my daughter & I both flowers 🙂 Guess I’m pretty lucky 🙂 I am gonna give this a try because I am allergic to Chocolate, and always tought “Fudge” was out of the question. Ty so much for posting this! <3 <3

  47. Chantal

    I am a single mom with two small daughters, I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day for obvious reasons but my girls would love this fudge! In South Africa, we don’t get canned frosting, I read in earlier comments that u have a recipe for Vanilla Buttercream Frosting so will try that with a few drops of food colouring :). Hope it works!

  48. Thinking about doing these with my 3 year old and then packaging up for class valentines. We will keep them in the fridge until the morning-of vday, but how do you think these will do at room temperature for a few hours? What about when they are dropped in a bag with other cards/candies for valentine’s exchange? Thanks!!!

  49. Pam

    Made these tonight w/Nestle’s pb& chocolate chips and Betty Crocker triple chocolate chip frosting. Very creamy, but still quite soft, and seemed to take more than 30 minutes to set. I did line the pan w/foil, then a light spray. I’d still make it again though!

  50. I am kind of sorry for you not being able to celebrate v-day lik you want, I can imagine better places than McD… 🙂

    Your recipe looks wonderful, I absolutely love the colour and structure of the hearts, so cute!

    1. shelly

      It won’t melt unless the temperatures where you are are very warm. In normal temperatures you can have it out for a while. It will get softer, for sure, but it won’t melt.

  51. Lisa konopka

    I made this recipe last night for our especial Valentine’day today,the kids have not seen it yet,but I couldn’t wait and had to sneak a little taste,boy oh boy,It’s so Delish!!!cant wait for them to taste today ,thanks for the recipe 🙂

  52. Oh, I made the mistake of making this fudge for my hubby today as a gift and I think I’ve eat a quarter of it all by myself…

    Well, I did use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to make well shaped hearts and there was all this left over fudge scrap… I had to do *something* with it…

    It was good. 🙂

  53. Anna

    years ago I made fudge with just a bx of frosting mix, 3 tablespoons of water and a microwave (2 minutes in the microwave stirring at 30 second intervals). But, sadly, you can’t buy powdered frosting mix anymore (except jiffy which doesn’t work) only the canned stuff. So this looks like it will be a reasonable (not quite as cheap or quick though) substitute.

  54. Melia

    I am not a strawberry candy fan but I am so going to try this with peanut butter chips and chocolate frosting to make chocolate peanut butter fudge.

  55. Hania Douglas

    How did you draw the pretty designs? I’m making this as we speak for my sisters 2nd birthday (bad sister missed the first one) tea party

  56. Have you ever tried mixing in chopped fresh strawberries? I think it would be really nice to maybe mix some in or add a strawberry layer in the center (like a double-decker fudge) but I’m a little worried it might change the consistency with the liquid from the strawberries. Has anyone tried it to know how the fudge might react? Just thought I’d ask before I try it for Valentines day and risk a huge flop! Haha thank you!! Love both you and Kristan!

    1. Shelly

      I wouldn’t use almond bark in it’s place…the flavor just wouldn’t be as good. That’s my opinion though…I bet it would work otherwise!

  57. Kruti

    Perfect for busy college students! Quick question though: what kind of frosting do we use, whipped or rich and creamy? Looking at Betty Crocker. Thanks so much 🙂

  58. Heather

    Any idea what I did wrong? It’s greasy with pools of grease everywhere. I followed the directions. Maybe it was the food colouring I added?

  59. Kiisha

    Hi!!! I just discovered your website and it is a Godsend! I would love to make this for class treats for Valentine’s Day. I am a little concerned if they will melt by the end of the school day when the teacher usually gives them out. Do you think they will hold up for about 8 hours out of the fridge?

  60. Gerrin

    I hate to be picky, but this ain’t two ingredients.

    If you were using, for example, Duncan Hines Strawberry Frosting, just that would give you fifteen separate ingredients, including trans fat-laden vegetable oil shortening and behavior-altering petroleum-derived artificial colors. And of course a buttload of sugar. And that’s just the frosting; most commercial white chocolate is low-quality.

    Why is anyone eating this crap? If you want to make fudge, buy some butter and cream and sugar and a thermometer and make it yourself. Otherwise don’t kid yourself that this is any kind of cooking or any kind of treat, unless you consider diabetes a treat.

    1. Peach

      Whoa there Debbie Downer, calm the fudge down.

      Making fudge the “easy” or “hard” way will produce diabetes if eating in excess. They both contain sugar. It’s a great treat for those of us who don’t have a whole lot of money for extra ingredients or a whole lot of extra time for baking. Or a combination of the two.

      So settle down. Have some fudge. Relax and enjoy the fact that parents still try to do nice things for their families despite not having a ton of free time. Or money. Or both.

    2. Jenny

      So you gave this recipe one star just because you don’t agree with the way it’s made? Don’t call something “crap” or insult the users of this recipe just because you do things differently.

    1. Shelly

      If you cut them in squares you will get at least 25 depending on how small (or large) you cut them. they are super sweet so a little goes a long way!

  61. Tonya

    Apparently in Canada you can’t find strawberry frosting anywhere… Do you know of an easy way to make some or turn vanilla frosting into strawberry frosting? My kids are so excited for these for school but I’m at a loss on this one.

  62. Nicole

    These look amaaazing! Would love to make them for my boyfriend for V-day but in South Africa you don’t get canned frosting… Is there any alternative I can use?

  63. Crystal

    I loved the simplicity of this recipe. I made it this afternoon as an after valentines treat. It was very rich and very sweet. A small piece was enough for me at a time. I put some mini m&ms on top which I felt was a good flavor combination. Thinking of sharing some with friends so it won’t waste. Just a little too sweet for my tastes.

  64. Sandi Boyd

    We have a fund raiser every year for The Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. I fixed this, and it went faster than the peanut butter. So easy to make, and so good also

  65. I and my partner are both foodies. But I often feel lazy to try any new recipes for the obvious reason that most of the recipes posted are all complicated and need a big list of ingredients.
    After stopping by your blog I feel, I am the luckiest person in the entire universe. Say thanks to your new friend (universe 🙂 ) for introducing me to you!
    The strawberry fudge recipe is so simple and pictures you have posted are so tempting for me to give a try.Thanks in advance, Shelly.

  67. Yes, my family also has little time left for a wife because of the children. Thank God, we were ready for this, and we will be able to survive until the child grows up. It’s normal that he needs attention, and there is no need to develop conflicts because of this. even if it gives you some inconvenience. I have not celebrated birthdays for about 5 years. And yes, it’s sad, and my wife is very frustrated because of this, but we understand that sooner or later it will pass, and we will be able to devote time to ourselves 🙂
