National Nutty Fudge Day: Vanilla Macadamia Nutty Fudge

Today is National Nutty Fudge Day, and I'm sure you'll want to make this great fudge. Over the years I've posted so many Nutty Fudge recipes, but today I thought I'd revisit a favorite: Vanilla Macadamia Nutty Fudge!

This recipe comes from the Nestle Toll House site. I've adapted it using Madagascar vanilla and Guittard White Chocolate. Make sure you're using 'real' white chocolate and not the fake stuff!

A very EASY Nutty Fudge recipe is also available at Chocolate Addiction. Chocolate-Addiction.com's White Chocolate Pecan Fudge recipe.

Vanilla Macadamia Nutty Fudge

Ingredients
Sweet Butter
2 1/2 cups sugar
2/3 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 cup sweet butter
2 cups White Chocolate chips or 2 cups chopped white chocolate
1 jar (7 oz) marshmallow crème
3/4 cup macadamia nuts, chopped (must be fresh)*
1 tsp Madagascar vanilla
1/4 tsp coconut extract

Directions

LINE 9-inch-square baking pan with foil, extending foil over edges of pan. Grease foil with butter. Butter sides of 3-quart heavy-duty saucepan.

COMBINE sugar, coconut milk and 1/2 cup butter in prepared saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until mixture boils. Clip candy thermometer to side of pan, making sure bottom of thermometer doesn't touch bottom of pan. Reduce heat to medium-low. Continue boiling at moderate, steady rate without stirring, until thermometer registers 238° F, softball stage (about 15 minutes). Adjust heat as necessary to maintain a steady boil. Remove from heat.

STIR in white chocolate until melted and smooth. Stir in marshmallow crème, nuts, vanilla and coconut extracts until well combined. Transfer mixture to prepared baking pan; cool for 3 to 4 hours or until firm.

LIFT from pan; remove foil. Cut into 48 pieces. Store tightly covered.
