VANILLABELLA FUDGE


This weekend, we made a batch of creamy delightful Vanilla Bella Fudge! We combined marshmallows, vanilla, sweetened condensed milk, and white chocolate chips. While they melted together, I had to STIR STIR STIR for 10 minutes and by the time I was done, my arms felt like big dead trees at my side. but it was totally worth it for the outcome:  A big batch of yummy, sweet fudge. It was very nice to have the fudge too considering the fact that our family usualy doesn't buy fudge. Our homemade type is even better than storebought kind.



so much white chocolate!



STIR!!!!!!


Finally melting
 
gooey ribbons of sweetness!


it's like hot lava


After a night in the fridge, we have....a cake of fudge

a bit tough to cut there

Ta-Da!!! ;)




the final outcome

FUDGE TOWER!

Mom's Note:  This fudge was super quick and easy.  The most difficult part was waiting for it to cool and harden in the fridge overnight.  We were looking through my recipes yesterday for my favorite oatmeal toffee cookie, when I came across a recipe for white chocolate macadamia nut fudge.  Sounds yummy, but we just didn't have all the ingredients on hand.  We will probably make some of that to give away for Christmas, so check back for that recipe. 

We adapted the recipe, and have christened it VanillaBella Fudge.  Recipe is below.  Enjoy, friends!

VanillaBella Fudge
3 cups (18 ounces) white chocolate morsels

1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows

1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
Line a 9” square pan with aluminum foil; lightly grease foil. Cook first 3 ingredients in a heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, 10 to 11 minutes or until smooth. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla and salt until blended. Pour fudge into prepared pan. Cover and chill at least 4 hours or until firm. Cut into squares and store in refrigerator.
