Microwave White Chocolate Tie Dye Fudge Recipe
This white chocolate fudge recipe is tinted and marbled to make the prettiest tie dye fudge around! Impress your guests without them knowing you didn’t even have to break out the candy thermometer!
For the longest time color has been my thing. When I first started this website in my neighborhood I became the chick that worked from home, if you can call taking pictures of her shoes in the grass in front of her house, work, in the tie-dyed shirts. I straight up had more wildly colored shirts I had made myself in my wardrobe than anything else. Every spring, when it was finally warm enough that I could go outside to rinse the shirts because I had a terrible bathroom dyeing incident with a pair of sheets made for Christmas one winter, I’d buy package after package after package of white men’s undershirts and just dye them up. I’d experiment trying to figure out something new but most of what I’d do were the old trusted and true spirals plus lots of interesting folds and pleats along with a significant number of bullseyes.
I’d dye them all up, toss them in bags, giddily wait overnight and then spend hours rinsing them out with the water hose while my dog would zip around prancing next to the horses in the back lot and taking sips out of the hose when she ran near me. Each shirt that was rinsed was then hung on my clothesline until all FOUR of the cables were filled, side to side with nothing but tie-dyed tees. Sure, not all of them were for me, but it was close :) I’d make special requests for friends and family members and when the boys were young enough to not really care what they wore I’d make them the brightest, most colorful tees you’d ever seen and they’d rock ’em around town with me. We must have looked like some crazy technicolor bunch when we ran around town :)
As much as I’d wear my shirts, and since they became a uniform for my craft blogging, really, the shirts would get torn up pretty quickly. They’d get plaster dried in the weave that wouldn’t want to come out or some crazy glue that made a scratchy place that made a tee uncomfortable to wear. And since I don’t have that big clothesline in the backyard, anymore, so rinsing things outside doesn’t really work so I haven’t made any tie die for ages. Just the other day I realized that I am down to 3, yes, only 3 tie-dyed shirts left, and one of them is a souvenier Rob bought for me at Buc-ee’s last summer. Meh.
Taken over by the spirit of tie dye I bought several packages of white shirts and a whole mess of dyes in lots of super pretty colors, deciding that this summer would be the year that I got out there and replenished my wacky, wild tee shirt collection. But, alas, I just haven’t gotten around to it quite yet. Sad about that fact and with a desperate sweet tooth bumping I decided to try and tie-dye fudge. Yum, right?
Now, this is my tried and true white chocolate fudge and you can totally forgo the crazy colorings and everything and just. make. white. fudge. I won’t judge you :) but I figured this recipe would be great for swirling and twirling colors together because when everything is melty it’s really nice and liquid. You know how sometimes fudge is really thick right from the get-go and you have to kind of smear it into the pan? Not this recipe. It’s smooth and velvety and pours from bowl to pan like nobody’s business. The flavor? It’s like this creamy, buttery white chocolate that you just can’t get enough of. This recipe begs to be added to, so feel free to get in there with a few mix-ins like nuts, fruit, chopped up cookies or other kinds of candy!

15-Minute Microwave White Chocolate Fudge Recipe (for Tie Dye Fudge)
Because I like to keep things simple I tend to do my best to work with ingredients as they come in packages so that I don’t have to measure out 2 cups of this and then have half a cup left over that I don’t know what to do with, you know what I mean? As such, this produces a softer and more creamy fudge than you might be used to. Feel free to add up to 12 additional ounces of white chocolate for a more firm fudge.
- 24-ounce bag of white chocolate chips
- 7-ounce jar of marshmallow fluff/cream
- 14-ounce can of condensed milk
- 3 tablespoons of butter
- Line a casserole dish with foil and lightly spritz with cooking spray. For this recipe I use my LYCKAD oven dish from IKEA, it’s a perfect size.
- In a medium microwave-safe bowl, microwave your butter for 15-20 seconds or until about half melted. Add chocolate chips and heat about a minute, or until the chips begin melting.
- Stir the butter and white chocolate mixture allowing the heat to continue melting chocolate. This prevents us from overheating and burning the chocolate.
- Once mostly liquid, fold in your marshmallow fluff and condensed milk. Microwave another 30 seconds until and stir until the mixture is well incorporated.
- Add mix-ins or colors, and pour into your prepared pan. Refrigerate several hours to allow to set.
- Remove from pan, peel away the foil and cut into 1-inch squares.
