This rich and chocolatey Coca-Cola® Fudge with Walnuts is made using real Coca-Cola®, so you just know it is incredible!
I love this time of year! The holiday season means spending time with family and, of course, lots and lots of great holiday eats.
Between Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve we have a lot of occasions to celebrate coming up, so I will be making lots of holiday treats to share with family.
Homemade fudge has always been one of my favorites, but this year I wanted to try a homemade fudge recipe with a new and exciting twist.
My husband and I love Coca-Cola® and Diet Coke®. In fact, I am sipping on a Diet Coke® as I write this post. So, I thought, what would be better than a fudge made with my favorite soda — Coca-Cola®!?
And I couldn’t be happier with how the fudge came out. This tasty Coca-Cola® fudge is basically like a sweet little slice of heaven. I can’t wait to share it with my family and friends this holiday season.
I have found that Coca-Cola® Mini Cans, available at Sam’s Club, are the perfect size for making Coca-Cola® Fudge. Rather than opening a full-size can and only using part of it, this recipe uses 1 entire Coca-Cola® Mini Can. So efficient!
Coca-Cola® Mini Cans and Sprite® Mini Cans are also absolutely adorable, and the perfect size for when I am craving a soda.
On my last trip to Sam’s Club I picked up Coca-Cola® Mini Cans along with a variety of other great beverages to serve my guests this holiday season.
To give my guests the greatest variety of beverages, I like to stock up on Coca-Cola®, Sprite®, Gold Peak® Sweet Tea, Dasani®, and Diet Coke® at Sam’s Club. By shopping at Sam’s Club I get a great value on beverages for holiday entertaining.
Plus, Sam’s Club offers Club Pickup which is perfect for busy mamas like me. After ordering online, Sam’s Club has everything ready for me to pick up as soon as I arrive. I will definitely be taking advantage of this time-saving service throughout the holiday season.
How to Make Coca-Cola® Fudge
If you love sweet treats, you are going to love this Coca-Cola® Fudge.
Begin by gathering your ingredients.
For this fudge recipe you will need:
- Coca-Cola Mini Can
- marshmallow creme
- granulated sugar
- evaporated milk
- chocolate chips
Now, grab a 9 x 13 baking pan and line it with parchment paper and a light coating of non-stick spray.
Next, melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Once the butter has melted add the sugar, evaporated milk, and a Coca-Cola® Mini Can. Stir continuously until it comes to a full boil. Now this will take some time, so you might want to do yourself a favor and have an extra Coca-Cola® Mini or Diet Coke® handy so that you can enjoy a Coke while you stir.
Once the mixture comes to a full boil you will need to cook it for 5 minutes. So, set a timer for 5 minutes and continue stirring constantly.
After 5 minutes, remove pot from heat and add chocolate chips and marshmallow creme, stirring until the chocolate has melted and the texture is uniform and smooth. Stir in walnuts.
Pour the mixture into your 9 x 13 pan and sprinkle with remaining walnuts.
Place fudge in refrigerator for 2 hours or until firm.
Once chilled, pull the ends of the parchment paper to lift the fudge out of the pan and onto a cutting board. Cut and serve.
I hope that you and your family enjoy this delicious fudge recipe this holiday season!
