premium white chocolate chips
1 (14 ounce) can
EAGLE BRAND® Sweetened Condensed Milk (NOT evaporated milk)
1 1/2 teaspoons
chopped green candied cherries (optional) (NOT Maraschino Cherries)
chopped red candied cherries (optional) (NOT Maraschino Cherries)
This is extremely easy, and I would swear utterly foolproof. These are pretty as can be on a tray of holiday goodies, but they're much too sweet for my taste and my guests apparently agree. It didn't compete well with other offerings, and I had lots left over. If you participate in a cookie/candy swap where each participant gets only a small quantity of the whole batch, this would be a nice item for that.
Don't give up on this candy until after its been chilled for the minimum time specified in the recipe. Mine sat in an unheated kitchen in a plastic bag on the counter, overnight, and was just perfect the next morning...even though I’d come within a hairs breadth of throwing it away the night before. I’d overlooked that last line in the recipe that says “chill for two hours in the refrigerator”. Heating the condensed milk to boiling temp and allowing it to boil briefly before adding the chocolate seems to help the candy to set-up well later.
My copy of the recipe specifies it should be stored in the fridge. I’m including a note with my gift packages, directing that the candy should be kept cool until just before serving time.
This candy is quick and easy to make, can be done in the microwave, sets-up well (if you just remember that white chocolate defies the usual rules of fudge, and actually will set-up properly once its been chilled.) and looks very nice poured thickly and cut small. Fudge lovers like the intense sweetness. I prefer to allow candies to reach room temp before serving.
This is really good if you like white chocolate. It is my favorite kind of fudge. I have made it the last three years for Christmas. It looks very nice with the red and green cherries.
This recipe WAS very easy. I was a little wary of trying it but I just loved the whole white, red and green scheme and thought the picture looked very festive. If you like white chocolate - you'll enjoy this. I wish i'd read the 12/20 review before I made it though - didn't occur to me to add coconut but it would have been a nice touch. The color is not pure white as the condensed milk turns it more of an off white - but still an attractive looking result. Only thing that worried me was that I added these to the christmas tins with cookies and other items that i pass out at christmastime. I stored them in my pantry where it was cool after they were packed but found myself constantly worried about how the fudge held up after I passed them on. Good for parties when you can pull em right out of the cooler, but not so much for gifting. I did take a pic i'll add after the holidays :D
I doubled the red and green cherries, added a cup of chopped walnuts and 1 1/2 cups coconut and spread in a 9" x 13" baking pan. Yummy!! Would like to find something similar that doesn't have to be stored in the refrigerator
I tried this recipe last Christmas and it didn't set for me. I followed the recipe exactly too.
A good fudge for the holidays. Use the white chocolate chips found in the baking sections. Fudge sets up very nice. Easy to make.
I hated it! I followed the recipe exactly as stated and ended up throwing it all away. Yuck!!
