White Fudge

Hello my friends,
 
I’m sure that many of you are like me when it comes to Christmas baking. . .we all have our favorites.
 
For our family it would be English Toffee, Chocolate Melt Aways, Caramels, and Turtles.  There are lots more that we make on our annual ‘Christmas Baking Day’, but these top the list.
 
Every now and then I like to try something new.
 
So was the case a couple years ago when one of my friends, Beth shared this recipe for White Fudge.

Some of you know that I am not a huge chocolate lover.  In fact, I can not even eat a piece of regular fudge unless it has lots of nuts to counter act the sweetness.
 
This fudge is super rich and so I add extra nuts for that same reason.  I usually like pecans, but the walnuts just seem to make this White Fudge.

Now before I give the recipe I’m going to share a little tip from my friend, Peggy.  So simple that you’ll be asking yourself, ‘why didn’t I ever think of that?”.
 
If you ever give fudge as a gift to neighbors or friends, do NOT cut it up into little serving pieces
.
Have you ever received fudge on a plate as a gift?  You eat one piece and then before you know it is all dried out.
 
Instead, cut your fudge into large chunks; wrap it up and gift it that way.  You can put it in a pretty box or whatever, but keep it large my friends!
 
They can cut it when they are ready to serve it.  If they are like me, they cut a little nibble at a time. lol!

White Fudge
Melt 1/4 c. butter in large pan.  Add 4 cups sugar and 1 pint of Sour Cream.
Bring to a full boil and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
Remove from hear and add 7 oz. Marshmallow Cream, 1 Tbsp. Vanilla, 2 packages of white chocolate chips, and 2 cups chopped walnuts.
Pour into greased 9x12 pan.  Cool and enjoy!

This may become a favorite for you white chocolate lovers.  It may just not cut it for you chocolate lovers.
 
But then, you’ll never know if you don’t try.


 It’s gradually becoming a favorite of mine.

In fact, both hubby and I love Maple Nut fudge.  Thinking of trying a batch and adding maple. Might be YUM-O!

Off for another nibble, hee-hee!
 
Merry Christmas,

Good Morning! All these great Christmas posts have me so excited about Christmas and decorating. The Link Party is AWESOME. I am probably going to be reading Christmas posts through February .That will make the winter fly by. The Advent season is so hectic I look forward to post Christmas when I can slow down and really enjoy Christmas and all that it brings and means from the simplest to the most profound.
I can't find your email address but if you shoot me an email with your address I'll send you mind. Angels to you my friend, and a blessed day.

I know your candy would be ever so good, but I'm trying really hard not to eat too much sugar during the holidays. I have such a hard time resisting.

Jann,
I love all your Christmas vignettes throughout your house! My faves are your little cages with things inside them and your room with the red quilt! LOVE that! Have a great Christmas. I just made some white fudge last week, but I put red and green cherries in it....so good, huh?
