DAY 9: Root Beer Float Fudge

I found this recipe on Shugary Sweets and thought it would be fun to try. If you are looking to make something a little bit different this year, this is it! Root beer flavored fudge swirled with a white chocolate marshmallow layer. You might want to warn people before they eat it; it may look like chocolate, but it definitely doesn’t taste like it!

Root Beer Float Fudge

3 cups sugar
¾ cup unsalted butter
1 cup heavy whipping cream
¼ tsp salt
3 cups (about 1 ½ packages) white chocolate chips
2 Tbs vanilla extract
1 ½ cups (7-8 oz jar) marshmallow cream
1-2 Tbs root beer concentrate*

Line a 9×13” baking dish with parchment paper.

In large saucepan over medium heat, stir sugar, butter, cream, and salt until butter melts. Bring mixture to a boil and stir continuously for 4 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in white chocolate chips and stir until chips are completely melted.

Use an electric mixer to beat in vanilla and marshmallow cream until completely smooth.  Pour half of mixture into prepared baking dish.

On low speed, beat root beer concentrate into remaining fudge mixture. Pour over white fudge. Use a knife to swirl the two layers. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Cut into bite size pieces. Store in refrigerator.

-Different brands of root beer concentrate will have different flavor profiles and concentrations. Start with 1 Tbs, taste, and add additional flavoring, as needed.
