Quick and Easy No-Bake St. Patrick’s Day Fudge

Before we dive in, let’s gather our tools and ingredients. You’ll need a square pan, parchment paper, a large bowl, and a spatula. That’s it on the tools front. Simple, right?


  • 3 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Green food coloring (gel works best for vibrant color)
  • 1 teaspoon mint extract (for that cool, refreshing taste)
  • Optional: Sprinkles or crushed candy canes for topping


  1. Prep Your Pan: Line your square pan with parchment paper, leaving some overhang for easy removal.
  2. Melt and Mix: In a large bowl, microwave the white chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and butter in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until completely melted and smooth.
  3. Go Green: Add a few drops of green food coloring to the mix. Start with a little, then add more until you reach your desired shade of Irish green. Stir in the mint extract.
  4. Set and Forget: Pour the mixture into your prepared pan. Smooth the top with a spatula. If you’re feeling extra festive, sprinkle your choice of toppings over the fudge.
  5. Chill: Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until firm. Once set, lift the fudge out using the parchment paper overhang, cut into squares, and serve.
