chai tea fudge
I’m so ready for fall. For crisp breezes and comfy sweaters and cozy cups of warmth and spices. It’s my favorite time of year. We can say goodbye to the heat and humidity, and we still have this glorious moment before the holiday stress hits. It’s the perfect time for all things chai. Just the aroma as I opened the Oregon Chai Tea Latte Concentrate was enough for me to close the door on summer and invite fall in. This Chai Tea Fudge is just like that cozy cup of tea, but in a creamy, delicious dessert. And bonus: It’s only 3 ingredients and super easy to make. Just right for relaxing on a fall afternoon.
To make quick and easy Chai Tea Fudge, let the Oregon Chai Tea Latte Concentrate do the work for you. The spices and flavors of fall, black tea, vanilla, and honey, are packaged for you already, and it’s all you need to turn fudge into a chai tea latte. I found my Oregon Chai Tea Latte Concentrate, made with organic and all-natural ingredients, at Walmart.

how to make chai spice fudge
The rich, creamy taste of spiced chai tea translates so beautifully to this rich, creamy fudge. The combination of the Oregon Chai Tea Latte Concentrate, with its blend of vanilla, tea, spices and honey, combines with melted white chocolate and a touch of sweetened milk to create a perfect, easy, no-fail fudge.
how to melt chocolate
In a large, microwave-safe bowl, combine four cups of white chocolate chips. This is 24 ounces, so be sure to buy either the large bag of chips or two smaller bags.
To melt the chocolate, you may set the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water on the stove-top (be sure that the water doesn’t touch the bowl), or, for a quick and easy fudge, use the microwave. Heat for 90 seconds at 70 percent power. Stir well and continue to heat, if needed, for 15 second intervals until about half of the chips are melted. Stir very well and use the residual heat to completely melt the chocolate. Make sure the chocolate is very smooth and let cool for a minute or two.
add spices and flavor
Pour in 1/3 cup of sweetened condensed milk (this is NOT the entire 14-ounce can, and be sure to NOT use evaporated milk) and 1/4 cup of Oregon Chai Tea Latte Concentrate. Stir very, very well. The chocolate may look like it’s starting to harden, but keep stirring until the mixture is very smooth.
If you like, cut open one bag of black tea leaves and pour into the fudge, stirring well to combine. This step is optional. I added the tea leaves simply because I find it makes the fudge even prettier. Seriously. That’s why. You do not need to add the tea leaves if you don’t have them available.
setting the fudge
Pour the fudge into an 8-inch square baking pan that has been lined with lightly-greased parchment paper or non-stick foil. I prefer a thicker fudge, so I use an 8-inch baking pan, but you may use a 9-inch pan if that is all you have. Refrigerate for one to two hours until fully set and cut into squares.
