Halloween Monster Mash Fudge – a fun and easy-to-make Halloween fudge made with sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips. This is a spooky and cute Halloween dessert that those of all ages will love to nibble on.
Trick or Treat! Halloween is such a fun time of year! I just love the spooky decorations, costumes and general sense of feeling care free like a kid again. While I will admit I am definitely not a fan of scary movies, I do enjoy other Halloween activities like carving pumpkins! Carving pumpkins is something I used to do with my dad and those memories will always be special to me. So every year, I keep on the tradition and often try to make an extravagant pumpkin carving.
I enjoy Halloween so much once as a kid I actually asked to delay my birthday party simply so I could have a Halloween themed party with all my friends! We played games such as wrap the mummy and bobbing for apples, and my parents made Halloween themed foods such as a jack-o-lantern shaped cake – so cool! I think that must have been one of my favourite birthday parties ever.
I also enjoy dressing up in a Halloween costume and going out. Unfortunately, I am not sure if that will be happening this year as we still have zero plans for this upcoming weekend! No one we know seems to be having a Halloween party, and I would really rather not go out to a bar. Maybe next year I will have to hold my own Halloween party!
At the very least, I still plan on enjoying spooky foods. Not only have I been busy looking up recipes on Pinterest, but I have been busy creating my own! This Halloween fudge was a lot of fun to make (and eat), and super easy as well. I named it after one of my favourite Halloween tunes – the Monster Mash. This would be a fun kitchen project to do with the kids as I am sure they would love swirling the coloured fudge layer together and adding the Halloween sprinkles and cute candy eyes!
This spooky Halloween fudge is made on the stove top by melting sweetened condensed milk with chocolate chips. it is done in two stages – the first with milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips, and then the second layer is created using sweetened condensed milk with white chocolate chips.You split the white chocolate fudge into two bowls and add in your choice of food colouring. I chose neon purple and green as I felt like it gave a nice witchy/monster Halloween vibe. You could easily go orange and black, or any other colour your heart desires though!
After mixing the white chocolate fudge with the food colouring you dollop it on top of the milk chocolate layer, alternating colours and then swirling together with a toothpick. Finally the most fun part – decorating! I used a Halloween sprinkles set my mom gave me that came with coloured sprinkles and candy eye sprinkles. I am sure you could find something similar to this at your grocery store in the baking aisle or a place like Michaels.
The toughest part of making this Halloween recipe is waiting a couple hours for it to chill in the fridge so that you can eat it!
But it’ so worth it.
Enjoy some chocolate this Halloween with this monster mash fudge – kids and parents of all ages are sure to have fun with this one! Happy Halloween!

Halloween Monster Mash Fudge
- 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk , divided
- 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
- food colouring of choice (I used neon green and purple)
- Halloween sprinkles, candy eye sprinkles
- Line an 8 inch square baking dish with parchment paper, with ends extending over the sides for easy removal later.
- In a medium sized saucepan add 2/3 cup of the sweetened condensed milk and the semi sweet or milk chocolate chips. Heat over medium heat, stirring until completely smooth. Spread into prepared baking dish in an even layer. Chill in fridge while making white chocolate fudge layer.
- In medium saucepan add remaining 2/3 cup condensed milk and the white chocolate chips. Heat over medium heat, stirring until completely smooth. Divide fudge evenly into two separate bowls.
- Quickly stir in desired choices of food colouring into the bowls before the mixture cools too much. How many drops of food colouring you need will depend on the type you are using and how bright of a colour you want.
- Spoon coloured fudge onto the chocolate layer, alternating colours and placement until the first layer is completely covered. Gently smooth together with a spatula, and use a toothpick to create swirls or zigzags through the fudge.
- Add on sprinkles and candy eye sprinkles, gently pressing down into the fudge. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until firm. Use parchment paper edges to lift fudge from the dish and cut into squares. Enjoy your spooky treat!
