These festive White Chocolate Cherry Fudge Brownies feature three layers of deliciousness: a rich brownie base, a white chocolate cherry fudge center, and a layer of dark chocolate ganache on top!

White Chocolate Cherry Fudge Brownies

These last couple months of year are my favorite time of year!!

Of course as a major foodie, the last two months of the year are always centered around food. So I naturally love these months. I’m always searching for the next best thing to include on my Christmas cookie plate, and these brownies are definitely making the cut.

White Chocolate Cherry Fudge Brownies

I took your basic boxed brownie mix and made it in an 8″ x 8″ pan and then topped it with a simple white chocolate fudge that I infused with red glace cherries. You know, the cherries you find in fruit cake?

Except these brownies are far better than any fruit cake you’ve ever tasted.

They’re rich, and fudgy, and topped with a decadent dark chocolate ganache. If you’re not a dark chocolate fan, go with a semi-sweet chocolate instead. You’ll be surprised at how quickly these disappear!

  • 1 18.4oz box brownie mix, including ingredients needed to prepare
  • 1 10oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 1/2 cups premium white chocolates
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup roughly chopped glace red cherries
  • 4 oz. bittersweet chocolate, dark chocolate chips
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream


  • Prepare the brownies in an 8" x 8" x 2" parchment lined baking pan, according to package instructions. Let the brownies cool in the pan.

For the Fudge:

  • Bring a small pot filled with 1 inch of water to a boil. Place a metal or glass bowl over the pot, so it's resting just above the water. Add the sweetened condensed milk, white chocolate, vanilla and salt and whisk until the mixture becomes smooth.
  • Remove the bowl from the heat and fold in the cherries. Pour the mixture evenly over the brownies and let sit until room temperature. Place the fudge topped brownies in the fridge for at least 1 hour, or until set.

For the Chocolate Ganache:

  • Bring the same small pot of water to a boil and use a clean metal or glass bowl to fit on top (without touching the water). Add the bittersweet chocolates, butter and cream to the bowl and whisk until smooth. Remove the bowl from the heat and let sit on the counter for 10 to 15 minutes. Pour over the fudge brownies and spread into an even layer. Return to the fridge and chill for another 15 to 20 minutes.
  • To slice brownies, simply lift out of the pan by holding onto the parchment paper and lifting up. Use a sharp knife to make even slices. Enjoy!
If you're not a fan of dark chocolate, use semi-sweet chocolates to replace bittersweet chocolates in the ganache.

    The recipe says white chocolate. The white chips I can find are vanilla flavored which I am assuming is incorrect so I bought white chocolate bars. Any idea how many ounces of white chocolate you used. Was is truly white chocolate or vanilla chips?

    Thought I would try to make these again because they were out of the park delicious & everyone loved them. I think the first time I made them, I used a whole can (14oz) of sweetened condensed milk instead of reading the recipe correctly and using the 10oz as listed in the recipe. Definitely my error. I also used the same white chocolate I did in the first batch & they came out great. The white fudge firmed up perfectly! Thank you for such an amazing recipe!!

    I used Nestle white chocolate chips. Do you have a brand of white chocolate that you use to make yours? It’s such a delicious recipe! Thank you!

    This was a fantastic tasting recipe! Everybody loved them. Unfortunately, the white cherry fudge layer was not firm nor did it hold it’s shape. Never really firmed up. I refrigerated for 1 hour( I know the recipe says atleast 1 hour) but maybe I needed to leave in longer? Anyone have the same issue? Any suggestions? Thanks for a great tasting recipe!

      I’m sorry the fudge didn’t set properly for you. It might be the type of white chocolate chips used? Next time you could try increasing the amount of chocolate to 3 cups. You definitely could chill it longer as well, you can’t over-chill it. 🙂
