It is perfect for a quick fudge recipe and it is also a perfect fudge recipe for vegetarians.  This fudge has no egg in it and it tastes heavenly!

This is a very quick fudge recipe and can be prepared in 10 minutes with about 2 hours of refrigeration time.

I found this wonderful natural green colorant on Amazon.  If it is too expensive for you, try this recipe for making natural green colorant using Spinach.

In this fudge recipe, I added almonds instead of the traditional pistachios.  There is such a thing as too much green in one recipe.  Being a little on the lazy side, I like to buy almonds that have already been peeled and cut which I get from Spanish or Indian Grocery stores.

Tips for making it

  • To make this fudge green, it is important to have all white-ish ingredients so that they can be stained.  That is why I use white chocolate chips as the base of this fudge recipe.
  • Instead of adding sugar, I like to use sweetened condensed milk which offsets the Bailey’s Irish cream perfectly.
  • If you are the type who doesn’t like the alcohol in this fudge, then use a non-alcoholic version of Bailey’s Irish Cream. It works just as great.
  • I made a small mistake when I made this fudge.  I forgot to line the mini muffin tray with muffin paper. Okay, it was a HUGE mistake.  When the fudge was ready, I had a hard time taking it out of the tray.  Eventually, I was forced to scrap them off and mold them into circular shape by hand.
  • To avoid my mistake, line the muffin pan with muffin paper. Or, add the fudge mixture into an oiled 9×9 pan and then cut it into squares.

One big fun thing about making this fudge recipe? I get to lick the pan in the end.

I also have a green antioxidant smoothie and an easy 5 ingredient avocado smoothie.
