White Chocolate Fudge
Why let the Milk and Dark Chocolate Fudge get all the attention around the holidays?
The rich flavors in this White Chocolate Fudge are perfectly balanced by a cup of coffee or tea. I love having this fudge in the house for a snack or sweet bite after a meal.
This white chocolate caramel fudge has been a HUGE hit with all of you over the past few years.
And judging from the popularity of the Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge, the Cranberry Macadamia Nut Fudge, and the Buckeye Fudge, easy fudge recipes will never go out of style around here.
How to Make White Chocolate Fudge
In just a few minutes, you can stir this recipe together and have it chilling in the refrigerator. Within a couple of hours, it will be firm enough to slice and serve.
To make your fudge, melt white chocolate chips with sweetened condensed milk and butter in the microwave. I do this in increments of about 90 seconds, stirring after each time.
Your chocolate will continue to melt even after you remove the bowl from the microwave. Mine usually has a few chunks of unmelted chocolate left when I get to this next step.
Stir in vanilla and pecans, then spread the mixture into a tray lined with parchment paper.
Drizzle some caramel sauce on top then pop the whole thing in the fridge to set. After a couple of hours, slice into squares and serve!
If you don’t have a microwave or prefer not to use it, this recipe also works using the double-boiler method for melting chocolate.
- ▢3 cups white chocolate chips
- ▢14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
- ▢4 tablespoons butter
- ▢1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ▢1 cup chopped pecans
- ▢1/2 cup room temperature caramel sauce
- Combine the chocolate chips, the milk, and the butter in a medium-size glass bowl and heat in the microwave for 90 seconds.
- Stir to combine and heat for another 15 seconds. Stir and heat an additional 15 seconds, only if needed. There will still be a few pieces of unmelted chocolate in the bowl.
- Stir until mostly smooth with just a few flecks of unmelted chocolate. Add the extract and pecans and stir to combine. Scoop onto a parchment-lined tray. Spread with a spatula to approximately 1-inch thickness. Drizzle with caramel sauce. Lightly swirl the caramel into the fudge with a knife or the end of the spatula.
- Chill until ready to serve. Slice into 1-inch squares and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Enjoy!
COOK’S NOTE: For this recipe, I used my homemade caramel sauce. However, the fudge will also work beautifully with a store-bought caramel sauce. If you don’t happen to be a fan of white chocolate, this fudge works beautifully (and is equally tasty) when made with semi-sweet or dark chocolate.
