Ingredients7 ounces marshmallow cream (one small jar)
8 ounces chopped white chocolate
3/4 teaspoon LorAnn Cranberry Super-Strength Flavor
1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick) 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
zest from 1 orange
pink and purple gel color
- Line a loaf pan (about 9" X 5") or small square pan with parchment paper, allowing paper to hang halfway over the sides of the pan.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or a large mixing bowl, add the marshmallow cream, chopped white chocolate, orange zest, cinnamon, and cranberry flavoring. Mix together until just combined and set aside.
- In a heavy, 2-quart saucepan melt the butter over low heat. Stir in the granulated sugar, and whipping cream until combined. Increase heat to medium and bring mixture to a boil WITHOUT STIRRING. As soon as mixture comes to a boil, wash down the sides of the pan with a wet pastry brush to remove any stray sugar crystals clinging to the side of the pan. Clip on a candy thermometer and continue to cook, WITHOUT STIRRING, to 240° F. Remove from heat and allow to cool until no longer boiling.
- Pour the hot mixture into the bowl that contains the marshmallow cream mixture and stir until well combined.
- Remove ½ cup of the candy mixture and color with gel coloring.
- Using a spatula, transfer the rest of the candy to the lined pan and spread to smooth. Drizzle the colored candy mix on top and use knife to create swirls.
- Once firm, cut fudge into slabs or pieces.
- To store, wrap fudge in waxed paper and place in an airtight container; refrigerate up to 3 weeks. To freeze, wrap fudge in waxed paper, then foil and place in an airtight container. Can be frozen for several months.
