White Chocolate Rum Fudge
Servings: 30 people
Looking for a delicious and indulgent treat to make this Christmas? I have you covered with this white chocolate rum fudge. Perfectly sweet and rich and it only takes 10 minutes to make!
- 3 cups sugar
- ¾ cup salted butter
- 12 ounces white chocolate chips
- 5 ounces evaporated milk Or ⅔ cup of heavy cream- see notes!
- 7 ounces marshmallow creme
- ¼ cup Spiced Rum
- ½ cup chopped walnuts
Prepare a 9x13 or 8x8 cake pan, and line it with parchment paper. Leave a small amount of excess paper on the sides so you can easily remove the fudge after it sets. Set the pan aside.
In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar with the butter and milk. On medium heat, stir or whisk until it begins to boil, then continue mixing it while it boils. Once it begins to “foam”, let it continue to boil for about 3 or 4 minutes. Remove the pan from the stove, and add in the chips and marshmallow creme. Quickly stir the mixture until the chips have melted with the creme. Using a rubber spatula, or wooden spoon, add the rum and the nuts into the fudge mixture and gently stir it in to combine it all together.
Pour the fudge mixture into the prepared pan, and spread it evenly. Allow the mixture to cool until it is set.
Cut into one inch squares and serve. To prevent the fudge from drying out, keep it covered with saran wrap or in a sealed container.
For an extra creamy (and very rich) fudge, you can substitute heavy cream for the evaporated milk. The fudge tastes the same, but the cream is a little bit sweeter. If using cream, be sure to keep the fudge refrigerated or it will become slightly soft.
