With a multitude of colors, this is definitely Christmas Fudge, with the beautiful likeness to stained glass windows.
Some of my first memories of the holidays were of my mom cutting out colorful rectangles of cellophane. She’d tape them on the windowpanes of our living room so at night they’d look like stained glass. That’s exactly what I thought these squares of colorful white chocolate fudge looked like as I sliced them.

Questions About Easy Fudge Recipes
What is Fudge?
Fudge is a creamy, semi-soft candy most often made of sugar, butter or cream, and flavorings, according to the Food Lover's Companion. It can be cooked or uncooked, plain or filled with nuts, chocolate chips, candies, dried fruit, etc. The most popular flavor is chocolate.
How Long Does Fudge Last?
The high percentage of sugar inhibits bacteria, so fudge will last a long time. It's good for about two weeks in an airtight container at room temperature, a month in the refrigerator, and 3 or more months in the freezer.
Can you freeze fudge?
Yes, fudge freezes well. Just make sure it's wrapped well so it doesn't dehydrate. If you freeze before cutting into squares, it will fare better in the freezer. Defrost in the refrigerator before serving.
