Vanilla Bean fudge has been on my mind for a very long time. With all the flavors of fudge I’ve made over the years, I’ve never done vanilla bean. Shocking, right?
The Root Beer float fudge and the Strawberry Swirl fudge have the base of the vanilla fudge, but it’s not quite the same until you add the vanilla beans. Just like vanilla ice cream and vanilla bean ice cream are very different, so is today’s fudge!
I know what you’re thinking. Vanilla Beans are expensive. It’s true. I use them sparingly and only in the BEST recipes.
Like today. You could just do vanilla fudge. Sure. But why not take that extra step and create something special? I love those little flecks of vanilla bean! I also used plenty of sprinkles to give this fudge a holiday flair. Feel free to leave off the extra chocolate and sprinkles to keep it simple, yet classy.
And, if you want to stretch your dollar, make vanilla sugar. It’s so easy. Once you’ve scraped your vanilla bean, put it in a mason jar and cover it with granulated sugar. Put a lid on the jar, shake, and let it set. I keep a jar (or two!) on my counter (or in my cabinets) and use the vanilla sugar in recipes like cupcakes, snickerdoodles, and lemon knots. It adds such a depth of flavor. Seriously. It’s perfect to add into any baked good that calls for sugar and vanilla extract together, use your vanilla sugar!
I replace the sugar in my jar several times before removing the bean. Then I add another bean (after I scraped out the good stuff!). It’s a cycle that is hard to stop!
Another thing I don’t go cheap on is Vanilla Extract. I have always bought Rodelle. Sure it’s more expensive, but it’s quality that counts, right? I mean, I can bake up dozens of mediocre cookies…but why not bake up DELICIOUS cookies instead by using a few quality ingredients? After all, you’re taking the time to bake!
