Snickerdoodle Fudge

Snickerdoodle fudge is rich, creamy, and full of everything we love about both sweet treats. Combining the cinnamon sweetness of snickerdoodles and the rich, creaminess of fudge, this fantastic fudge recipe is so satisfying, and so easy to make!

I’m a big fan of fudge. I always have been. From my childhood days of sneaking a piece of chocolate fudge after my mom had made a batch to my own cooking days, when I would STILL take a piece as my own fudge was cooling, I’ve always been in love with this creamy, rich, sweet treat. There’s just nothing better than a piece of fudge that’s so rich, you feel like you’ve enjoyed an entire plate of dessert from one square. Over the years, I’ve made all kinds of fudge for everything from holidays to potlucks, and I’m always trying new variations. One of my favorites lately has been this delicious snickerdoodle fudge. Once you take a bite, it’s going to be one of your favorites, too. 


Snickerdoodle Fudge

This fudge recipe is the ultimate mashup if you ask me. It starts with a classic white fudge base of condensed milk, white chocolate chips, and vanilla. Then, I add cinnamon to create the first layer of cinnamon deliciousness that snickerdoodles are known for. Speaking of snickerdoodles, I complete that classic cookie flavor with a cinnamon/sugar mix sprinkled on top. What I end up with is a classic white fudge that is absolutely overflowing with the infused flavor of snickerdoodle cinnamon flavor.

How to Make This Easy Snickerdoodle Fudge Recipe

Like most fudge, this version is incredibly easy to make. It only takes a few minutes and a few simple steps. You’ll be in and out of the kitchen in no time!

Step 1: Prep

Spray a 9 x 9 square baking pan with cooking spray. Line with parchment paper and leave a lip over two sides for easy removal. Set aside for now. 

Step 2: Melt the Chocolate

Add the white chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk to a medium saucepan and heat over medium-low heat, stirring continuously, until the mixture is melted. 

Step 3: Add the Vanilla and Cinnamon

Remove the melted chocolate and sweetened condensed milk mixture from the heat. You can keep in the pot or pour into a large mixing bowl. Then, stir in the vanilla and cinnamon. Now, pour the fudge into the prepared pan. 

Step 4: Finish the Fudge

Mix the cinnamon and sugar mixture in a small bowl, and sprinkle it over the hot fudge. Let the fudge cool to room temperature and then chill at least 8 hours or overnight. Cut into 1-inch squares and serve. 


This fudge is so delicious just as it is, but I have some variations that you can make to switch things up if you like. 

  • Snickerdoodle Topping – Add crushed snickerdoodle cookies to the top of the fudge before it sets to create even more snickerdoodle goodness. 
  • Snickerdoodle Chunks – Crush snickerdoodle cookies into chunks and fold them into the fudge itself.


  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Mixing bowl
  • Rubber spatula
  • Saucepan
  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper


You can store this fudge in a cool, dry place for 2 to 3 weeks. For longer storage, you can freeze it in an air-tight, freezer-safe container for up to 3 months. 


This recipe is so incredibly easy that I only have two tips for you. They’re important, so don’t overlook them. 

  • Stir continuously when melting the chocolate and condensed milk together to prevent burning. 
  • Always chill your fudge overnight for the best quality and texture. 


If you have questions about this snickerdoodle fudge, then read on. The following FAQ answers the most commonly asked questions about this delicious treat. 

Where does fudge come from?

The history of fudge is a hotly contested one. The exact origin and inventor of this confection is a subject of intense debate, but the prevailing theory is that the first batch of fudge was created by accident when American bakers “fudged” a batch of caramels. 

Why does fudge need to be chilled?

It’s part of the making process. Fudge will only set properly when it’s chilled in the refrigerator, however, after it’s been chilled it can be stored in a cool dry place. 

Should fudge be refrigerated? 

Outside of the initial setting process, do not ever refrigerate your fudge. It draws out the moisture, making it grainy, dry, and crumbly. 

How do you freeze fudge?

Place the fudge squares in single layers separated by wax paper in an air-tight, freezer-safe container and freeze for up to 3 months.
