We know you’re really into the idea of eating sweets on Valentine’s Day. Who isn’t? But you can’t just eat a plain old cookie or chocolate bar. Nope. Your V-Day sweets need to be extra special, because this is an extra special holiday. Which leads us to today’s topic: a recipe for pink white-chocolate fudge loaded with macadamia nuts, sprinkles, and candy hearts!
Try this recipe out with your BFFs as you celebrate Galentine’s Day, or perhaps whip up a batch to share with your paramour? It takes all of 15 minutes to prepare, then just pop into the fridge to cool.
What You Need:
- 3/4 cup butter
- 3 cups white sugar
- 6 oz. condensed milk
- 11 oz. white chocolate chips (one bag)
- 7 oz. marshmallow fluff (one jar)
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1-2 cups of macadamia nuts
- Red or pink food coloring
- 1 box of candy hearts
Combine your evaporated milk, 3/4 cup butter, and 3 cups of sugar in a sauce pan. Cook over low heat, stirring consistently to dissolve the sugar. Once dissolved, increase to medium heat and bring to a gentle boil. Stir, while boiling, for three to five minutes. The texture will become frothy, light, and airy.
Remove from the heat and add your marshmallow fluff, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and chocolate chips. Stir well until everything is smooth. You may need to turn the heat back on for just a second to get that creamy consistency.
Add red or pink food coloring and stir well. Add more or less depending on the color you’re trying to achieve. We went for a very soft, powdery pink.
Finally, add your macadamia nuts. You can skip this if you’re allergic to nuts, or you can go wild and add extra if you’re a big fan of the crunch factor! Stir well.
Pour into a greased 9×13 pan, and shake sprinkles all over. Allow the fudge to cool a bit, then place your candy hearts on top. Since it’s had a little time to cool, they should rest right on top without sinking.
Place in the fridge or freezer until your fudge has cooled completely. Then cut into squares, or get creative with cookie cutters, like we did!
