Reviews for White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge
"I accidentally got milk chocolate instead of white chocolate and added it before I noticed. But it still turned out awesome. I plan to make it again with the white chocolate and I'm sure it will be just as good."
"Very good fudge! It's really light and fluffy!"
"Followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect! Love Taste of Home recipes."
"I used the Hershey's white chocolate chips and they did not work well. They didn't quite melt right and they are a "vanilla" flavor that made a cloying sweet taste. I have used white chocolate chips for fudge recipes before, but may have been Nestles brand. I think the recipe is good. Just don't use the Hershey's brand chips in it."
"I made this for the first time and it was quite easy! I did the candy thermometer trick as suggested. My candy thermometer tested 12 degrees below 212 degrees when the water started boiling. I think this contributed to the success of the recipe. I also used a 12 oz bag of white chocolate chips and sifted all the powder out of the crushed candy. Have everything ready and work fast after taking the mixture off the stove. Delightful!"
"We tried several different peppermint fudge recipes and this one is the BEST hands-down. We make four batches every year and always run out."
"Best fudge ever!! We only changed one thing. Don't use hard peppermint. Use candy cane pop rocks. Stir in one pkg before pouring up, and a second on top after it is cooled some. Yummy!!! Beautiful soft red swirls, too. Don't over stir first rocks."
"If I can make this, a 5 year old can. I am normally terrified of the kitchen, I am shocked at how yummy this is and more shocked that I made it. It's a miracle"
"delicious simply creamy and melt in your mouth good"
"Will the fudge still turn out if I forgot to boil it for 5 minutes? I just heated it until the sugar was dissolved...missed the sentence where it said to boil it.. Whoops! I did the rest of it, just put it in the fridge....Hopefully its still edible?"
