Root Beer Concentrate
I can’t even begin to describe how delicious these taste but, since you’re hear to read about this recipe, I suppose I should at least try.
Okay, so you know the crunchy part of a root beer float? It’s when the root beer sticks to the ice cream and forms crunchy little bits of root beer flavored ice crystals.
If you eat this fudge cold, it tastes like that.
To make this root beer candy you need:
- White chocolate chips
- Marshmallow cream – Also called “marshmallow fluff”
- Heavy Whipping Cream
- Butter – Unsalted is preferred. If you only have salted, add a bit less additional salt to the fudge recipe.
- Root beer concentrate – I used McCormick’s brand found near the extracts in the baking aisle at my grocery store.
How to Make Root Beer Float Fudge
STEP 1. In large saucepan, heat sugar, butter, salt and cream until combined. Bring to a boil and stir continuously for 4 minutes.
STEP 2. Remove from heat. Quickly stir in white chocolate and marshmallow. Whisk in vigorously until smooth, be patient this will take a couple minutes. Using an electric mixer yields best results.
STEP 3. Pour half of mixture into a parchment paper lined 13×9 baking dish. To the remaining fudge, whisk in root beer concentrate. Stir until combined.
STEP 4. Pour the root beer fudge over the layer of white fudge. Using a knife, swirl the two together. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Cut into bite size pieces and enjoy.
After cutting this fudge into squares, keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to eat it. I LOVE the way it tastes when it’s cold. . . it feels so much more like a root beer float.
However, fudge CAN be stored at room temperature if desired.
