I’ve never been successful with traditional fudge making recipes. The “soft ball stage” is completely foreign to me, and the candy thermometer……..you sure that’s not used to check for fever in a large animal? When I was in the fifth grade, my best friend Robin’s mother attempted to teach me to make fudge. I was unsuccessful then and continue to stink at it today, until a coworker of Roddy’s passed along this super easy microwave (yes, I said MICROWAVE) fudge recipe. Another quick recipe with minimal ingredients, this is a winner, another perfect gift giving idea and party favorite. In a few minutes, White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge!
I love all flavors of fudge, Peanut Butter, Chocolate, Maple, but this White Chocolate is probably my favorite. Adding some crushed candy canes or peppermint chips really make this a special treat at Christmas.
Measure, Microwave, Stir and Pour, four easy steps to successful fudge. You can do it, don’t be nervous, it turns out perfect every time.
