3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup chopped pecans
30 soft caramel candies, unwrapped
3 tablespoons heavy cream
Line an 8×8 baking pan with aluminum foil, making sure to leave some overhang for easy removal. Lightly grease the sides of the foil in the pan (to prevent the caramel from sticking to the foil) and set aside.
Add the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and butter to a large saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring well until the mixture is completely smooth. Add in the chopped pecans and stir until fully combined. Set aside.
Add the caramel candies and heavy cream to a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 20-30 second increments, stirring well after each increment, until the mixture is melted and smooth.
Add half of the fudge to the prepared baking pan and smooth it out. Add all of the caramel on top and evenly distribute it on top of the fudge. Add the remaining half of the fudge and spread it out evenly over the caramel.
Transfer fudge to the refrigerator for 3-4 hours (or overnight) or until the fudge is solid enough to cut into squares. Cut into small pieces and enjoy!
1-1/2 teaspoons plus 1/2 cup butter, softened, divided
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk
2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
3 teaspoons orange extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Line a 9-in. square pan with foil; grease the foil with 1-1/2 teaspoons butter and set aside. In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, milk and remaining butter. Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a rapid boil; boil for 5 minutes; stirring constantly.
Reduce heat to low; stir in chocolate chips and marshmallow creme until melted and blended. Remove from the heat; stir in extracts. Pour into prepared pan. Refrigerate overnight or until firm.
Using foil, lift fudge out of pan; carefully peel off foil. Cut fudge into 1-in. squares. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 2-1/4 pounds.
3 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup butter
2/3 cup eggnog
2 cups white chocolate chips
1 7-oz jar Marshmallow Creme
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
holiday sprinkles for decorating (optional)
In a large heavy-bottomed saucepan, add the sugar, butter and eggnog, and bring to a rolling boil over medium heat, stirring constantly
Let mixture boil for 5 minutes, and continue stirring as it thickens
Remove from heat, and stir in the white chocolate, marshmallow cream and vanilla
Continue stirring until mixture is well combined, thick and no longer shiny
Pour mixture into foil-lined and greased 9×9-inch baking pan, and allow to cool completely
Cut into 1-inch (or smaller) pieces to serve
3 cups sugar
¾ cup butter
⅔ cup half and half
12 ounces white chocolate chips
1 7- ounce jar marshmallow creme
½ cup finely crushed candy canes or peppermint candies
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
2 teaspoons red food coloring
Line 9-inch square pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Spray pan with cooking spray and rub with a paper towel. Set aside. Also spray a small thin-bladed knife with cooking spray (a butter knife works well for this). Set aside.
Combine sugar, butter and half and half in a sauce pan (at least 3 quart-size) over medium heat until mixture comes to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly (don’t mistake bubbling at the edges for a full boil). Cook for exactly 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
Add white chocolate chips and allow to sit for 1 minute, then stir until all chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Add marshmallow creme and peppermint extract. Stir again until smooth and well mixed.
Sprinkle peppermint over the top and gently fold it into the chocolate mixture. Stir just until combined (if you stir too much at this point, mixture will turn pink and the final product won’t be as pretty.)
Pour approximately half of mixture into prepared pan. Spread to cover bottom. Using a small spoon, sprinkle 1 teaspoon of the red food coloring in random drops over the surface of the fudge. Quickly pour the other half of the fudge mixture over the red food coloring. Spread evenly. Drizzle the other teaspoon in random drops over the top.
Using the side of the prepared knife, run it back and forth through fudge creating a swirled pattern. Once you get a pretty swirly pattern, stop. If you swirl too much the whole mixture will turn pink. Cool completely (if you’re in a hurry, like I usually am, refrigerate fudge till cool). Use the foil handles to lift fudge from pan before cutting into squares.
