White Chocolate Walnut Fudge

I do not love white chocolate.  It's okay, and I'll nibble on it occasionally, but it's really not my favorite.  But, my husband loves it and requested that I make some white chocolate fudge this year.  So, I just used the trusty old Fantasy Fudge recipe on the back of the Marshmallow Creme jar and changed out the semi-sweet chocolate for the white chocolate.  It turned out GREAT.  I love this fudge!!  And I totally did not expect to.



So, in case you don't have a jar of Marshmallow Creme handy, here is the recipe for their fantasy fudge (with my changes to it):


White Chocolate Walnut Fudge
3 c. sugar
3/4 c. butter
5 oz. evaporated milk (1 small can)
12 squares of white chocolate (that's 2 full boxes), chopped
1 jar marshmallow creme
1 c. coarsely chopped walnuts (I would actually add probably another 1/2 c.)

Line a 9" pan with foil.  Bring sugar, butter and milk to a boil, stirring constantly.  Boil until it reaches a temperature of 234 F*.  Remove from heat.

Add chocolate and marshmallow creme, stir until melted.  Add walnuts.  Pour into pan and cool.

*The actual recipe says to boil for 4 minutes OR until it reaches 234 degrees.  Do NOT boil it a full 4 minutes!!  Be sure to use a candy thermometer to make sure your fudge turns out soft and creamy.
