White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge


I am a huge lover of all things peppermint so during the holidays, I'm always looking for something minty to make or bake.  It's the perfect time to overdose on mint, particularly mint paired with chocolate.   I intended for this fudge to go to our neighbors and to work with James to share but the portion that was supposed to go to those hungry Air Traffic Controllers never made it.  James refused to take this treat to work and instead wanted to hoard it all for himself. ;)  I can't blame him, though, this fudge is definitely worth the ridicule he received at work over not bringing it in with him.

It's rich, smooth, minty, sweet, and perfectly chocolaty from the white chocolate.  It was the perfect addition to my gift baskets for the neighbors and was a great treat to have around the house.

I love that I got to cross one more thing off of my 30 While 30 list with making this candy.  I highly suggest using a candy thermometer when making this, it will make it much easier and take the guess-work out of it.  I use candy thermometer all the time.


White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge
Printable Version

1½ tsp. plus ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened and divided
2 cups granulated sugar
½ cup sour cream
12 oz. white baking chocolate, chopped
1 jar (7 oz.) marshmallow creme
½ cup crushed peppermint candy (about 6 candy canes)
½ tsp. peppermint extract

1. Line a 9-in. square pan with foil. Grease the foil with 1 ½ teaspoons butter; set aside.
2. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, sour cream, and remaining 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° (soft-ball stage), about 5 minutes.
3. Remove from the heat and stir in white chocolate and marshmallow creme until melted. Fold in peppermint candy and peppermint extract. Pour into prepared pan. Chill in refrigerator until firm.
4. Using foil, lift fudge out of pan. Gently peel off foil; cut fudge into 1-in. squares. Store in the refrigerator.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog
like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not
100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Kudos

com, I ordered sealed-airtight "cans of green coffee beans", as it seemed easy
enough to roast them over a campfire, if I ever needed to.
Not only will you learn whether the beans live up to
their advertising, you're likely to pick up home roasting tips
for those particular coffee beans. But did you ever wonder how that Joe
got to your cup.
