You need to make this.

For one thing, it's pretty. And tasty. They're delightfully creamy little squares of black and white chocolaty candy topped with toasty golden coconut. It's all about contrast. Black and white, dark and light, vanilla and chocolate, chewy and crunchy. How can you resist that?

And while you're at it, you might as well find out how easy it is to make your own sweetened condensed milk. Just follow the link. All you do is throw everything in a blender and blend. Told you it was easy.

Some may argue this isn't "real" fudge. Real fudge is made by making a real candy mixture, boiling that candy mixture to a softball stage (with a real candy thermometer) and then keeping your fingers out of it till it cools. Just because it's bubbly and shiny doesn't mean it's friendly.

But that doesn't matter. This candy is just as good as the "real" stuff, as well as being easier (and quicker) to make. The video will walk you through the process step by step, and if you look closely, you'll see how you can put the white chocolate layer on top (the picture has it on the bottom). Bet you didn't notice that till I told you.

Servings: 16
Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Place white chocolate, milk, 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon coconut oil into a medium sized saucepan over low heat. Stir until chocolate has melted. Spread unto bottom of parchment or wax paper lined 8x8 glass pan.

Repeat for dark chocolate layer, using the last tablespoons of butter and coconut oil. Spread onto white chocolate layer. The layers will not be even but that's part of the fun!

Press toasted coconut onto top of fudge and refrigerate or freeze until firm. Cut into small pieces and enjoy!

Note: If you want even layers instead of the marbled look place the dark chocolate layer on the bottom.

* You can make your own sweetened condensed milk with our recipe here.

I love the coconut recipes. Thanks so much for posting them. I wanted to get the sweetened condensed milk recipe but it would not come up. This really interests me because I don't trust the manufacturers of dairy and most other food products. My daughter-in-law in Australia makes her own sweetened condensed milk.

This is very good! The only thing I did different was to add some vanilla in both layers, and added a little stevia to the dark chocolate. What a great combo! Thanks for an easy yummy sweet tooth fix!

why not use pure coconut milk(thai kitchen) instead of the condensed milk and make it even more coconutty and healthier? I created vegan fudge by using coconut oil and I get more compliments on it than anything else I make :)

COuld you use coconut milk instead of condensed milk?

Sweetened Condensed Milk:
1 cup instant dry powdered Milk
3 Tablespoons melted Butter or Margarine
2/3 cup Sugar
1/2 Cup boiling Water

If you start by making the white chocolate layer, then you can get away with using only one pan (or not washing it inbetween)- a little white in the chocolate layer won't discolor it badly, but a little chocolate in the white might.

any way you could use the pure coconut milk in the sweetend condenced milk recipe instead, do you think? my sons allergic to dairy...

No, you cannot substitute coconut milk for sweetened condensed milk. They are entirely different products.

There is a coconut product similar to sweetened condensed milk: cream of coconut. Not 'coconut cream'. Cream of coconut is usually found with the drink mixers at most any grocery store.
