Root Beer Float Fudge Recipe

My children have always loved root beer floats so I came up with this fudgy treat just for them. Sweet and creamy with that familiar root beer flavor, it's always a best seller at school bake sales. —Jennifer Fisher, Austin, Texas

Hi mabiggs -

You're looking for root beer concentrate, not extract, and it's carried at Walmart (in SoCal, at least). Good luck!Big Smile

Wonderfully yummy fudge that really does taste like a root beer float! The only problem I found was the color combo for the brown. However, it's on the back of the McCormick Asst. food coloring box (5 red, 6 ylw, 3 green) That gives it a tan color. Will make it darker next time. I also upped the vanilla to a full tsp to give it a more ice creamy taste. Delish!
