White Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallow Fudge - yes please!!

a wintertime treat for the snowy, cold days
White Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallow Fudge
(recipe from Crepes of Wrath)

2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 5 oz. can (2/3 cup) evaporated milk
1 Jar (7 1/2oz) Marshmallow Fluff
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
1 12 oz. package white chocolate chips (the higher the quality, the easier it is for them to melt)
11 candy canes, crushed (I crushed mine as small as possible, to avoid chipping any teeth)

1. Combine the sugar, salt, butter, evaporated milk, and Fluff in a medium pot and melt together over medium-high heat. When melted, bring to a boil and stir while it boils, so it doesn’t burn, for a full 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add in the vanilla extract, peppermint extract, and white chocolate chips. Return the pot to low heat (the lowest your burner will go) and stir until the white chocolate has melted (white chocolate does not melt as easily as milk or dark chocolate, so you may need to stir a bit more vigorously than you’re used to).

add the peppermint!
2. When the white chocolate is melted, stir in half of your crushed candy canes, then add in as much as you want, reserving a bit to sprinkle on the very top. Pour into an 8×8 or 9×9 pan (I used an 8×8, but I would have preferred a 9×9). Set aside to cool, and cut the fudge when it is room temperature. Makes 24-28 pieces of fudge.
finished product - ta-da!!! :)

i highly recommend this SUPER EASY fudge recipe!! Enjoy!

it'd be super cute to package up in cubes and put it in a clear bag with a festive ribbon, love it!
