Simple 2 Ingredient Frosting Fudge Recipe

Which Ready-made Frosting to use?

You can use any ready-made can frosting to make this fudge. My preferred brand is Duncan Hines. I have also used the Betty Crocker brand and they both come out perfectly.

I see where some people have made this fudge from whipped can frosting and it came out just fine. I have not tried using it, so I am not sure how it will turn out. You are at your own risk trying it. If it works comment below and I will be happy to update this post!

What Chocolate Chips to Use in the Frosting Fudge Recipe:

I use semi-sweet chips because the icing is already super sweet and there is no need to add more sugar to the recipe.

What Toppings Can You Use?

In this recipe, you can use sprinkles, nuts, a drizzle of chocolate. Anything your sweet tooth can dream up!

What additives can I add to change the flavor of the fudge?

  1. Flavor extracts: Flavors like mint or orange to enhance the flavors. Extracts work well with white frosting and white semi-sweet chocolate chips to add more flavoring.
  2. Gel Food Coloring: Add the gel to the mixture to change the color of the white frosting.

Must Try Can Frosting Fudge Combinations

  1. Chocolate frosting, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and walnuts. (or any nut you like).
  2. Strawberry frosting, semi-sweet white chocolate chips, sprinkles.
  3. Cream cheese frosting, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and sprinkles or nuts.
  4. Cream cheese frosting, and peanut butter (2 cups).
  5. Chocolate frosting, peanut butter (2 cups).
  6. White chocolate frosting, white chocolate chips, sprinkles or nuts

2 ingredient frosting fudge


  1. Phillis Batcho says:

    can I use sugar free frosting for this recipe

    1. You can try it. I haven’t tried to use it before. So I am not sure how it will turn out.

  2. I have a container of pillsbury funfetti chocolate fudge frosting I was hoping to use for this recipe but it’s only 15.6 oz not 16 oz. Do you think the recipe would still turn out correctly?

  3. Linda Tanso says:

    Did peanut-butter one, yummy! Has anybody do a two layered one? I love fudge with chocolate
    and peanut butter on top.

  4. Gail Raughton says:

    I made and added part Carmel bits and part semisweet chocolate chips and added chopped pecans.

  5. I have made the chocolate fudge recipe and it was wonderful. My family loved it and thought I worked for a couple of hours to get that good of a fudge. It will be my only fudge recipe from now on. Thank you so much for sharing it.

  6. Fudge

    Can you use whipped frosting for this fudge, if not, why not?

    1. Hi Dianne, You can try it, but if it doesn’t set up and get hard like regular fudge then it could be because of the whipping. It’s a lighter consistency than the other frosting versions.

      1. Can you use frosting and condensed milk?

        1. Hi Sandy ,
          I have only tried chocolate chips and frosting for this recipe. Condensed milk is more for traditional fudge. If you try it and it works. Let me know.

        2. I also need the recipe for 2 ingredient fudge in a hurry! I know that it uses I frosting container and I can of eagle brand milk. Merry Christmas to all and thank you

          1. Candice, I do not have one like that on my blog.

  7. Maggie Snyder says:

    I haven’t made this fudge in a long time….. I found a can of milk chocolate icing in the cabinet and had milk chocolate chips. The fudge was very soft, softer than I remember. Maybe frosting too old?
    Taste is ok, just very soft. Just wondering.

    1. Was the frosting the whipped version? If so that could be why. Maybe it was just old. I have made it many times and it isn’t soft. Store it in the refrigerator maybe it will harden up some.

  8. Nina Motil says:

    I love fudge but every recipe I’ve tried even the one “easiest” made with chocolate chips and marshmallow cream was beyond my abilities. This is fabulous and TRULY EASY. Thank you so muchl

    1. I make this recipe often at Christmas time. The only difference I have with mine, I add a teaspoon of butter flavoring. I also make lots of flavor variations. I use chocolate frosting and add peanut butter chips, white chips with cream cheese frosting. Just mix and match.

        1. Probably not. That is not an ingredient I have used. I am not sure what it is. I have only tried this recipe with premade icings.

  9. Emily gregerson says:

    My dad read this, and went 12 miles to the store just to see if it worked, and dang they were gone, as fast as you could say frosting!!! Rate: 10/10 yumm, highly recommended!

      1. Hi Glenda,
        Great question. I used semi-sweet for these but in my strawberry fudge, I used white chocolate. I prefer the semi-sweet. The frosting is already really sweet and semi-sweet compliments it perfectly.

  10. OMG – these fudge brownies look scrumptious! I looooooooooove the frosting :)

  11. I have never met chocolate frosting that I did not like! I have got to tell ya, this recipe sounds fabulous and so easy with only 2 ingredients! #merrymonday
