Each Christmas since joining our family, my nephew Adam’s wonderful wife, Morlee, has been making amazingly wonderful and gluten-free White Chocolate Candy Cane Fudge for everyone in the family. Truth be told, that kind of fudge had never appealed to me before she started making it.
I have always been more of a classic Hershey’s cocoa fudge or Classic Freezer Fudge kind of gal. But then I sampled a piece of Morlee’s White Chocolate Candy Cane Fudge. Just to be nice, you know?
Well, I bet you know where I am going with this. As soon as I had one piece of her fudge, I was hooked!
Because this fudge is decadent to the hilt, I purposely make the small tin that we receive from Morlee and Adam last as long as possible. Mr. GFE rarely indulges (and honestly, I’m pretty pleased about that if you want to know the truth) and I don’t indulge in this fudge any other time of year. But I definitely indulge during the holidays.
Let me make this clear; this fudge is so very good! Amazingly good.
And I have really good news for you. Morlee has graciously agreed for me to share the recipe with you all!
As you’ll see below, sometimes Morlee changes things up and uses Andes mints instead of crushed candy canes to make White Chocolate Andes Mint Fudge.
She simply presses an unwrapped Andes mint into the surface of the fudge right after spreading the fudge mixture in the pan. You place the square equidistant apart so that when the fudge is cooled, your squares will look like they do in the top photo.
You can’t get that wrong so don’t stress over it. Just enjoy this fudge, whether you make it with crushed candy canes or Andes mints.
Obviously, this fudge makes a great Christmas gift, but it also would be a lovely surprise for one of your sweethearts at Valentine’s Day, too!
