This is posted by request, but sounds interesting, so I will probably try it soon. So many fudge recipes I have looked at seem to have marshmallow creme as a main ingredient! I know people have been making fudge for hundreds of years, but I am sure that marshmallow creme hasn't been around that long. Novel idea- it reminds me of Beanie Brownies (#29280) which contains black beans and Velveeta Fudge (#45077). Recipe adapted from Christmas-Cookies.com
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 1⁄4 cup light corn syrup
- 5 ounces evaporated milk
- 3⁄4 cup mashed potatoes (approx.)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (about 1 cup)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Line a 9" x 9" pan with waxed paper or foil and set aside.
- (This can also be done in an 8"x8" pan, but your fudge will be thicker, obviously) Heat butter and potatoes and mix until potatoes are creamy and well-blended.
- Drier potatoes will work better so if you are using mashed potatoes that are a little wet, you may want to heat them to evaporate some of the liquid.
- Heat milk in a saucepan over medium heat until warm.
- Add sugar, salt, and corn syup.
- Bring to a rolling boil, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon.
- Continue to boil for about 5 minutes, then add the potatoes and mix.
- Bring back to a boil for about 3 minutes or until the boiling temperature reaches 234°F on a candy thermometer.
- Remove from heat and stir in remaining butter, chocolate chips and vanilla.
- Mix thoroughly and pour into prepared pan.
- Remove from pan, remove paper or foil, cut into squares.
- Decorate with powdered sugar, a blend of powdered sugar and a little cocoa powder, or if you would like, you may melt some chocolate over a double boiler and dip in chocolate and let set on waxed paper.
Not worth doing. I tried it twice and the first time it was grainy and lumpy and the 2nd dry and hard. If you inisit use instant potato flakes, they will provide a smoother texture than real potatos.
