A bright holiday twist on a favorite fudge recipe.
What’s your favorite treat to make around Christmas time? Mine is definitely fudge. I love baking cookies, cupcakes and more during the year but fudge is something I always made with my grandma as a kid and making fudge now reminds me of her. My favorite fudge recipe is the one from Nestlé. It’s the one you can find on the back of the Nestlé Carnation Evaporated Milk wrapper and the one I’ve been making for years! This year I decided to put a little twist on it with Red & Green Morsels.
You may remember I used the green morsels in my Caramel Apple Snickerdoodles last week and today I’m using both the red and green to create bright, fun and tasty fudge. I needed about two bags of the Red & Green Morsels to get enough of each color. There are also good ‘ol brown chocolate chips in the bags too so if you want a full batch of fudge make sure to get two bags. Then just follow the directions on the label (or you can find it on Nestle’s Pinterest Page) or you can get the full details below!
- 1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
- 2/3 cup evaporated milk, divided
- 2 Tbsp. butter, divided
- 1/4 tsp salt, divided
- 2 cups mini marshmallows, divided
- 1 1/2 cup Red & Green Morsels
- 1 tsp vanilla, divided
- In two bowls separate red and green morsels.
- In a medium saucepan heat 3/4 cup sugar, 1/3 cup evaporated milk, 1 Tbsp butter and 1/8 tsp salt. Bring to a boil and stir constantly for 4 minutes.
- Remove from heat and stir in 1 cup mini marshmallows, 1/2 tsp salt and 3/4 cup red morsels.
- Stir until marshmallows are melted and red color is fully incorporated.
- Place in a lined 4" bread loaf pan and let chill in fridge for at least 2 hours.
- Repeat steps 2-6 with green morsels.
