This decadent fudge recipe has all the flavors of german chocolate cake. It’s an incredibly easy dessert that can be made in the microwave just a few minutes!
Growing up, one of my favorite holiday treats was german chocolate cake. My mother and Granny always had a homemade one displayed on the cake stand during Christmas week. I must’ve had a slice every night!
In my house, we make a lot of fudge during the holidays. We love it because you can quickly make a whole batch with minimal equipment and it makes great gifts. People are always happy to receive a tin of fudge!
This year I thought it might be fun to combine my old family tradition with the new and make german chocolate cake fudge. I have to say, it exceeded expectations!
- Dark Chocolate Chips
- Coconut Pecan Frosting
- Shredded Coconut
- Sea Salt
- If you want to make this fudge a little softer, you can add 2 Tablespoons of milk or 1 Tablespoon of butter when melting the chocolate
- I used a 2.5 quart square pan, but you can use a smaller or bigger dish to increase or decrease the thickness of the fudge. This all depends on your preference.
- I like to give the fudge a few minutes to warm up a touch before slicing. Makes for a smoother experience.
