Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter plus more for greasing the 8 x 8 inch pan and parchment paper
  • 3 cups of mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup sugar I use organic pure cane sugar and it works very well
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream heavy whipping cream works as well
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder use the best quality you can find, it does make a difference
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 12 ounces white chocolate chip morsels use the best quality you can find, it does make a difference
  • desired amount of red gel food dye I use 38-40 drops
  • 1 tablespoon or more of red sugar sprinkles

Instructions

  • Grease an 8 x 8 inch pan with butter and then line with 2 pieces parchment paper that are crisscrossed, leaving an overhang. Butter the paper and set aside the pan. This step helps enable you to remove the formed fudge from the pan with ease later on.
  • Using a medium or large saucepan over low-medium heat, add 4 tablespoons of butter, 3 cups mini marshmallows, 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup heavy cream, 1/4 cup cocoa powder and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt. Stir gently until the mini marshmallows are melted, this may take 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, 12 ounces of white chocolate chip morsels and desired amount of red gel food dye (about 38 drops), stir until the chocolate is fully melted and everything is combined. Pour into prepared 8" x 8" pan. Allow to cool for 30 minutes. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon or more of red sugar sprinkles over the top 15 minutes into cooling. Cover and transfer to refrigerator and set for 1 hour.
  • When the fudge is completely set, use the overhang of the parchment paper to gently lift the fudge onto a cutting board to cut for serving. Package in jars or boxes if you are gift giving and don't forget the red velvet ribbon! Enjoy!
