I'm a huge sucker for anything white chocolate + peppermint, so when I saw this recipe for white chocolate peppermint fudge, I had to try it out! It is really rich and yummy and easy to make. Enjoy the recipe!
-1/4 cup butter, softened plus about 1 1/2 tsp butter for greasing the pan
-2 cups granulated sugar
-1/2 cup sour cream
-12 oz white chocolate chips
-1 jar (7oz) marshmallow cream
-1/2 cup crushed peppermint candy (I crushed them pretty small so the fudge wouldn't be crunchy.)
-1/2 tsp peppermint extract
-Line an 8 or 9 inch square pan with foil. Grease the foil with about 1 1/2 tsp butter; set aside.
-In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, sour cream, and 1/4 cup butter. Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a rapid boil; cook and stir until a candy thermometer reads 234 degrees (soft-ball stage), about 5 minutes. (I didn't test temperature, just cooked for slightly less than 5 minutes.)
-Remove from heat; gradually stir in white chocolate chips and marshmallow creme until melted. Fold in peppermint candy and extract. Pour into prepared pan. Chill unitl firm.
-Using foil, lift fudge out of pan. Gently peel off foil; cut fudge into 1 inch squares. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 2 pounds. Original recipe can be found here.
