Another incentive for the girls at church. Follow the instructions carefully even if it doesn’t look like the fudge is going to turn out right, there were a couple of times when it didn’t look quite right and I almost threw it away but I just kept going and it turned out delicious in the end. The recipe is from a blog called “Centsational Girl”. And I found the cute little “Keep Calm” saying on a website called “Fanpop!”.
2 1/2 (11 oz each) bags white chocolate chips
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
6 oz cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract (or omit this for straight white chocolate fudge)
green icing (optional)
Pour 2 1/2 bags of white chocolate chips into double boiler. (My double boiler wasn’t big enough to hold all the ingredients so I just did this on the stove top over low heat in a regular pot.) Add can of sweetened condensed milk. As chocolate and milk start to melt, stir with a whisk so it blends well then add cream cheese, sugar and peppermint extract. Continue to stir for 8 – 10 minutes until mixture is thick and resembles thick frosting. Pour mixture into 8 x 8″ pan sprayed with nonstick spray (I lined the pan with foil and sprayed that) and allow to cool for 6 hours or overnight. (I put it in the fridge to cool overnight.) Once cooled, lift out of pan and peel foil carefully away then slice into 1″ squares. Decorate with green icing, if desired.
