The Minecrafter’s Cookbook: Dirt Block Fudge

Alistaire picked out The Minecrafter’s Cookbook (An Unofficial Cookbook) at the library because what kid doesn’t love Minecraft? He went through the book and picked out a couple of recipes to cook for culinary purposes. The book was published in 2018, so is six years old, but still relevant for fans of the game. It has lots of choices, and many full color photos of the food.

The dessert he loved was the Dirt Block Fudge, on pages 62-63. It’s a very easy recipe with just three ingredients. Even young children can do this recipe with an adult’s assistance. And they will enjoy it! It’s sugar. What’s not to love about that when young?

You can swap out the chocolate chips for what you like: butterscotch, mint, dark chocolate, white, and even use different flavoring extracts for a wide range of easy fudge.

Dirt Block Fudge


  • 3 cups milk chocolate chips (you’ll need 1½ bags, 11.5 ounces each)
  • 14-ounce can of condensed sweetened milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract


Cut parchment paper to fit an 8″x8″ pan. Set aside.

Add the chocolate chips and milk to a microwaveable bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, stirring with a spatula, and repeat as needed until the chips melt.

Stir in the vanilla.

Scrape the fudge into the prepared pan, smoothing it out on top.

Place in refrigerator and chill for an hour.

Take out and cut into bite-size pieces. Store covered in the refrigerator.
