Eating a piece of homemade fudge is pure fudgy heaven!  Especially, with white chocolate surrounding chunky pieces of Baby Ruth candy bars!

This fudge is not just melted white chocolate with a bunch of gooeyness in each piece… it’s also a combination of cream, sugar, marshmallows, caramel, AND candy bars!

What could seriously get better than that?!

I’ve always loved fudge made from scratch.  In fact, I have a Pinterest board all devoted to some pretty amazing OH FUDGE! recipes from a lot of talented bloggers.

This is similar to a fudge recipe I’d always make when I was a little girl.  My grandmother would make fudge all the time during the holidays.  So, fudge actually reminds me of Christmas.  But, Baby Ruth candy bars remind me of Halloween.

So, I decided to put my own twist on the ol’ fudge recipe and use white chocolate (which happens to be my favorite kind of chocolate!) and Baby Ruth candy bar pieces.

Which is simply named– Baby Ruth Fudge!

Making these are a breeze!

Pssss…. No candy thermometer!

Baby Ruth Fudge Ingredients1 by SimplyGloria.com

Start with chopping up 3 regular sized Baby Ruth candy bars.  (I ended up using 2 and 3/4 of them… “someone” had eaten a piece!)

If you’ve never tried such a candy bar.  It is purely an American candy bar with caramel, peanuts and chocolate-flavored nougat all surrounded in chocolate.

Bring the evaporated milk (not sweetened condensed milk… the other canned milk) and the sugar up to a boil for 4 minutes in a heavy sauce pan.  That’s it.  4 minutes.  Just keep stirring so it doesn’t burn.

Pour the hot sugar and milk mixture straight over a large mixing bowl filled with white chocolate chips and mini marshmallows.

Stir until you notice all of the white chocolate and the marshmallows are melted.  Then gently fold in the chunky pieces of candy bars.

The reason you want to gently fold the candy bar pieces in is because the heat will start to melt the candy bars and you want to still have some big pieces through out the whole experience of the fudge.

Spread the fudge mixture into a lined 8 inch by 8 inch baking dish.  Line the pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil.  It makes it so much easier to lift and cut.

Drizzle your favorite caramel sauce over the top, right away.  Use a small knife and swirl in the marks without actually stirring it up.

The melted white chocolate mixture will immediately start to cool.  So, set off to the side and let it set up.  I couldn’t wait any longer… so I stuck it in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes and was all ready to cut.

      I just have to hide these from myself! Having these linger around on the counter top is really not good for the muffin top action!
      Thank you so much, Paula… you just made my whole day! (=

      Funny you mention the texture thing… because, that is my biggest thing about fudge. It can’t taste like you just melted chocolate and firmed it back up again. That’s why I added the marshmallow texture to it. You’d love this kind of fudge, Julia! (=

      Julianne, I got the burlap at the craft/fabric store. They even have polka dot and all other cute designs onto the burlap. (Even a print that looks like newspaper.) I bought them all. Don’t even know what to do with them… but just had to have them. hehe
