I made this yesterday for the first time. The recipe is basically the old Kraft Fantasy Fudge recipe I've made for 40 + years with the flavors changed. The good news is that it tastes delicious and is just the right consistency. The only problem I had was with the color. Even with root beer concentrate, the root beer layer was too pale. I added a bit of regular food coloring to it, but it was going to take a fair amount to get it root beer brown. The next time, I'll buy some concentrated brown color from a local cake decorating and candy making supply store to color it. Seems like it will be a great recipe to make during the upcoming holiday season.
BTW, I couldn't find McCormick root beer concentrate at my local grocery stores. Instead, I bought Watkin's brand at my local Wal Mart.
Made this for an auction at my PT Cruiser Club and was a big hit! Will add to my candy recipes and make again!
Sounds yummy, can this fudge be frozen and taken out a couple of pieces at a time?
Hi mabiggs -
You're looking for root beer concentrate, not extract, and it's carried at Walmart (in SoCal, at least). Good luck!
Hi Pattie-_k -
Add to the portion with the root beer flavoring 5 red, 6 ylw, 3 green (drops) of McCormick Asst food coloring. Good luck!
