White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge & Week 11

Every year at my work we do a Christmas Fudge Throwdown. The staff room is filled with different types of fudge and the staff vote for their favorite. It’s all in good fun but some of the staff get pretty into it. By some of the staff I mean me. I’m the one who starts the emails talking smack about everyone and telling them how I’m going to win again. I know. So unlike me, right? But I have to give them grief. I win every year. Yep, me! This was the winning recipe last year (so I’m making it again this year. It’s that good!) Doesn’t it look festive?
White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge
* 4 cups sugar
* 1 can (12.5 oz.) evaporated milk
* 1 cup butter
* 1 bag white chocolate chips
* 1 pint (7.5 ounce) marshmallow cream
* 1 tsp. vanilla
* 1 bag Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips
* In a large saucepan melt butter.
* Add sugar and milk.
* Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it reaches 236 degrees. Make sure you use a candy thermometer because the temperature is important. If it gets too hot it will harden too much. If it doesn’t reach 236 degrees it will be too soft to cut.
* Remove from heat and add chocolate chips, marshmallow cream and vanilla.
* Beat with a spoon until melted and blended.
* Fold in about 1/2 the bag of peppermint chips. (Have you seen these? They are amazing! I’m sure you could use chopped p candy canes if you wanted but I don’t like the hardness of the candy canes in baking. These chips are soft, like a chocolate chip almost.)
* Pour into a buttered 9 x 13 pan.
* Sprinkle the remaining peppermint chips on top.
* Cool completely
How easy is that?

  26. I think I would trade my left arm for some of this sweet goodness. Just kidding – I really need my left arm. I live in Canada and have never seen the Andes peppermint stuff. I think it would be a great alternative to crunchy hard candy canes great idea.

  28. Are you kidding me! That’s all my mind will let me say! I think it just went into deliciousness shock!! 🙂

  29. These look dangerous! I woud eat way too many of them.

  30. I tried to make these last night and had a few questions. All my evaporated milks are 12 oz. instead of 14 oz. Did you mean sweetened condensed milk? Also, did you use exactly a pint of marshmallow creme, or would 2 7-oz. jars work? Thanks!

  31. Michelle – evaporated milk! My recipe is so old I guess they changed the size of the milk and I didn’t notice. But I just used one can. And the marshamllow cream they changed this year as well. I used 2 jars and left some of the last jar out. It makes it so fluffy that way. But you could use only one jar too.

    Thanks for the questions! I hope yours turned out awesome!

  32. Just wanted to let you know that I featured this today on FTF! Grab a featured button if you would like one and don’t already have one! Thanks and Merry Christmas!!

  39. I really want to try this white fudge! It looks so yummy and festive. I live in Utah, so I’m worried about the temperature. Is 236 soft ball or something else? I’m new to this candy making stuff!!

  40. Just in time for Christmas 2011! I would love to try some right now!

  41. Hi I will be making this for sure.. Never tried these chips but looking forward to it.. thanks.

  42. Hi just made this not sure if it will harden up.. Do you know if I could rebatch it? Well first thing I over boiled it went all over the stove then I put white chips in and it didn’t melt then I put it in a small pan and then I put it in my mixer . Then I put it in a pan to small had to get another pan so lets hope it all works..

  43. hiya – just found this via Pinterest – can you tell me the weight of the ‘bag of white chocolate chips’ is? I live in New Zealand and they are all different sizes! lol thanks – really want to have a go. I probably have to make the marshmellow fluff as I haven’t seen it here but atleast there’s lots of recipes online for it!!

  44. This looks so tasty
