White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge

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?


* 4 cups sugar
* 1 can (14 oz.) evaporated milk
* 1 cup butter
* 1 bag white chocolate chips
* 1 pint 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?
