Mackinac Island, Michigan .... the land of fudge and shit. Hahahaha. I always remember my Dad saying that. My grandma and grandpa were from Michigan so we had a family reunion in Livonia, Michigan and after the reunion we toured different parts of Michigan and we all went to Mackinac Island to get some fudge from Murdick's. Mackinac Island is the birth place of fudge in America. FYI. Side note, there are also a lot of horse and buggy rides on the island so there is an overwhelming smell of horse poop, which is why my Dad would say "fudge and shit". Hahahaha. Anywayyyyy, today is National Fudge day and I happen to be a big fan of white chocolate fudge so we added some patriotic colors because I also happen to love America. Enjoy! Xx
Fourth of July Fudge
2½ cups sugar
½ cup butter
5 oz evaporated milk
2 cups marshmallow creme
8 oz white chocolate chips
Red and blue food coloring
1. Line an 8" X 8" baking pan with parchment paper or foil and lightly spray the parchment with non-stick cooking spray. Make sure to use a no-flavor cooking spray and don't get too crazy with the spray or it will affect the taste. Set aside.
2. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, butter and evaporated milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently.
3. When it comes to a boil, stir constantly for 5 minutes then add in the marshmallow creme and the white chocolate chips. Stir until smooth.
4. Divide the mixture into 3 bowls. Working very quickly so the fudge doesn't start to harden, tint one red, one blue, and keep the third white. I mean it, you need to work fast people! Pour the red fudge into the prepared baking pan, followed by the white fudge, then the blue fudge. Use a knife to drag through the mixture, combining to form the marbled effect. It will start to set immediately so you get what you get. It will look cool regardless. Let cool completely before cutting. Store in fridge.
