root beer float fudge.

Happy 4th of July, everyone!

I hope your three day weekend (or regular two day for some of us) has gotten off to a fantastic start! I thought I’d give you all a little recipe perfect for a party or barbecue this weekend. This fudge recipe is pretty easy and is very similar to the birthday cake fudge I made many moons ago. Also, it’s VERY sweet! You’ve been warned.

This week was the last week for a couple guys at work so we had a food day and everyone could bring in different foods to share with everyone else. I use this opportunity to stuff everyone with sugar. And I mean really. Once I brought cupcakes, the next time brownies, and this time fudge. Crazy good, wonderfully sugary, super tasty fudge.

The key to this fudge is the root beer concentrate. Everyone at work flipped out about and said it tasted exactly like a root beer float. You can almost taste the carbonation. I had many people come up to me and ask for the recipe or say the fudge tasted like a root beer float. It’s safe to say my ego grew a little bit. But it’s all thanks to this fudge. So please have a great weekend celebrating our great country.

Happy cooking, friends!

Root Beer Float Fudge
makes approximately 40 pieces
recipe from taste of home

3 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter (1 1/2 sticks)
5 ounce can evaporated milk
12 ounce bag white chocolate chips
7 ounce jar marshmallow fluff
2 teaspoons root beer float concentrate
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Line a 9×9 square pan with aluminum foil and spray generously with non-stick spray.
In a medium sized pot combine the sugar, butter, and evaporated milk. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, gently stirring constantly. This will take about 5-6 minutes. Once the mixture comes to a boil, stir constantly for four minutes. After the four minutes are up remove the pan from the heat and stir in the white chocolate and marshmallow fluff. After this point you need to work really quickly because the fudge will set up pretty quickly. Pour a generous 1/3 of the mixture into a small bowl. Stir the vanilla extract into the smaller portion and stir the root beer float concentrate into the larger portion. Pour the root beer fudge into the prepared pan and spread into a flat layer. Pour the vanilla fudge on top of the root beer fudge and spread over the top.
Store in the fridge until fudge is set. Cut into 1 inch pieces and serve.
Fudge can be stored in the fridge or at room temperature, well wrapped both places.
