Ok, all you dark chocolate purists out there…you may need to close your eyes for a few minutes, because what I’m about to say here, could–for you–border on blasphemy. I do apologize for that. Nevertheless, I feel compelled to forge ahead and share these daring words with you—you may want to sit down.
White Chocolate Fudge.
Be brave now–I was a non-believer once too, but not anymore because this stuff will have you singing Hallelujah along with a couple of angelic choirs. Smooth, creamy, melt in your mouth goodness with tiny gumdrop dabs mixed in–for good measure. Heaven, I tell you…pure heaven!
Oh, and did I forget to mention that this recipe is easy and whips up dang fast? Well, I’m telling you. Therefore, my dears–go now and make this, that your candy larders may be full against a time of fudge famine in all the land…

White chocolate fudge! YUM! I love white chocolate.
No need to apologize to this cholcolate goddess about the white stuff – I love it too and this sounds absolutely wonderful. Do you think sugar covered gum drops would work okay – use the big ones and cut the sugar off? I like their consistancey better than Dots, not as chewey and sticky to your teeth.
AMEN! This was good! 😉 I’m not always a white chocolate fan, but this was pretty tasty!
Me too man…
I think so because the original recipe just said, “gumdrops.” I just used Dots because I like them. I’d like to try them just with orange slices and see how it turns out—so we’ll see and let you know.
It was dang fine.
Oh, and “larder” means–pantry. Sorry about that old world word choice. I was trying to sound…um…old world.
just letting you know, that I’ve been diligently working on editing my birth story for the past several days, and am getting close (I got a copy of the nurses/dr’s notes, so I could compare what I remember to what actually happened in terms of what they keep a record of–so i’ve been busy working that into my original birth story). I will email you a copy as soon as it’s done, and you can post it on your website–i will warn you now, it is LONG!
I can’t believe my little Cameron is 1!
Launi, this looks amazing. I am developing quite a taste for white chocolate. I used it on the Oreo Truffles and they were fabulous!!
Good job my dear! I can hardly wait to read it. Time does go by so fast—my baby is 19 years old. Hard to believe.
Ooooohh, wow. I have a daughter that would fight you for the Oreos! She’s wild for them so that sounds wonderful. I was really pleased at how pretty this fudge turned out.
mmm, it looks delicious! Do you ship overseas?
HAA! For you, my darling–of course we do!
Ooh, I like Dots!! 🙂 Mom wants to make some. We are thinking Christmas Dots would be fun.
How long will these keep
How long does it take to set up in the fridge?
Not too long. I’d say about an hour-ish.
Can this be doubled for a 13×9 pan ? Thanks
Yes, I’m sure it could.
