Piña Colada Fudge Recipe

A sweet taste of the tropics- piña colada fudge recipe!

Piña Colada Fudge Recipe

I still have so much to share with you about my trip to the Caribbean on the Regal Princess. But first… Piña Colada Fudge! I am seriously Piña Colada-ing alllllll the things. *sigh*

Perfect for parties! Pina Colada Fudge Recipe

This Piña Colada Fudge recipe couldn’t be easier. My extended family has a luau every summer and you can bet I’m bringing this dessert. I think I’m going to have to triple the batch because it is just so good. Everyone will be wanting a sample!

Confession- before I went to an actual tropical island I had never seen fresh coconut. I had no idea it was so lush and green. I always buy the matured brown coconut in the grocery store. But when a woman chops down a coconut from a tree then uses a machete to slice off the top and mix a drink for you? Don’t ask questions. Just thank the heavens for your good fortune.

Fresh coconut- an island MUST!

Take me back!

But seriously though. Take. Me. Back.

This private (pink!) cabana was my home for the day on the Princess Cays Island.

I alternated virgin piña coladas and mojitos that day.

    Would have never thought of pina colada fudge, but looks like you nailed it. Also, I love that you were able to experience a real coconut for the first time! 🙂 Hope you are doing well.
