4 Days Til Christmas: (Super Easy) Marshmallow Fudge

We're in the home stretch now!
Christmas is literally only sleeps away now. 
I work tonight, tomorrow and Sunday then wake up ready to celebrate on Monday!

To add to my cookie assortment I made some super easy (and almost foolproof) fudge.
I made 2 batche: one wit regular chocolate and one itch orange chocolate. 

I used Martha's recipe for Peppermint fudge, just omitted the peppermint.

You'll need:

Nonstick spray, for baking pan

  • 2 1/4 cups (16 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup round peppermint candies, plus 18 for garnish
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 3 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt

    1. Lightly coat a 9-inch square baking pan with nonstick spray. Line pan with two pieces parchment paper in both directions, leaving 2 inches of overhang on all sides; spray parchment. Place chocolate in a bowl. In a food processor, pulse candies until finely chopped. In a medium saucepan, combine candies, cream, marshmallows, butter, sugar, and salt over medium-high. Whisk until smooth, 5 minutes.
    2. Pour mixture through a strainer into bowl with chocolate; let stand 1 minute, then stir until smooth.

    3. Pour into baking pan and refrigerate until set, 3 hours. Cut fudge into 1 1/2-inch squares. With a sharp knife, cut 18 candies in half; press a candy half into each square before serving or packing.
