This festive Grinch Peppermint Fudge is creamy and melts in your mouth! You'll love how easy it is to make, and it's fun to see on a plate of cookies and candy!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 bag (11oz) white chocolate morsels
  • 1 jar (7oz) marshmallow cream
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1 drop green gel food coloring
  • green sugar and red heart sprinkles, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Prepare an 8-inch square baking dish by lining it with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Add white chocolate morsels, marshmallow cream, peppermint extract, and green gel food coloring to a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
  3. In a large, heavy saucepan, add butter, cream, sugar and salt. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring frequently. Once boiling, continue to boil for a full 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and pour over white chocolate mixture. Using an electric mixer, blend for about one minute, until morsels are melted and mixture is smooth.
  4. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish. Immediately add green sugar and red heart sprinkles to the top, pressing them gently into the fudge. Refrigerate for two hours (or overnight).
  5. Once set, cut into bite sized pieces and store in an airtight container at room temperature for two weeks. For freshest fudge, only cut as needed, keeping the large chunk of fudge in a ziploc bag until ready to eat.
