Apricot White Fudge Recipe

Apricot White Fudge Recipe

"This fudge has become a family favorite because of the luscious blending of flavors," notes Debbie Purdue of Freeland, Michigan. "I try to make it for gifts at Christmastime." Use a candy thermometer or the cold-water test to make sure the mixture reaches soft-ball stage; then chill until set.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 10 min. + chilling YIELD:81 servings


  • 1-1/2 teaspoons plus 1/2 cup butter, divided
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 12 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
  • 3/4 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts


  • 1. Line a 9-in. square pan with foil; grease foil with 1-1/2 teaspoons butter.
  • 2. In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, sour cream and remaining butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir until a candy thermometer reads 234° (soft-ball stage), about 5-1/2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • 3. Stir in chocolate until melted. Stir in marshmallow creme until blended. Stir in apricots and walnuts. Immediately spread into prepared pan. Refrigerate, covered, overnight.
  • 4. Using foil, lift fudge out of pan. Remove foil; cut fudge into 1-in. squares. Yield: about 2 pounds (81 pieces).
Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.

"I made this fudge for Christmas 2010 and it was fantastic! It's one of those rare dishes that ends up being a conversation starter and everyone asks for the recipe. It was easy to make and turned out beautifully! I will be making this fudge again and I plan on making it again next year to give as gifts. It's that good! :)"
