Pro Tips

  • Make sure that you melt the chocolate slowly and stir often. This will help prevent it from burning. 
  • When adding in the sprinkles, press them down with your fingers so they stick to the top of the fudge.

  • If you want to use a sugar cookie mix, be sure to bake them according to the package directions first.  
  • Make sure that you do not turn your stove on higher than medium heat because you don’t want to scorch the chocolate.
