What You'll Need

  • 6 fl oz (2/3 cup) evaporated milk
  • 11 2/3 oz (1-2/3 cups) granulated sugar
  • 1 oz (2 tbsp) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 7 oz marshmallow cream or fluff
  • 12 oz (2 cups) white chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp mint extract
  • 1/4 tsp red food coloring

How to Make It

1. Prepare an 8x8 pan by lining it with aluminum foil and spraying the foil with nonstick cooking spray.

2. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the milk, sugar, butter, and salt, and stir until the sugar melts.

3. Bring the mixture to a boil and boil, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes.

4. After 5 minutes, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the marshmallow cream, white chocolate chips, and mint extract.

Stir quickly and vigorously to incorporate all of the marshmallows and chocolate.

5. As soon as the candy is smooth, scrape it into the prepared pan and smooth it into an even layer. Dot the top of the fudge with drops of red food coloring, and swirl a toothpick through the top to create beautiful red swirls on the white fudge. 

6. Let the fudge cool at room temperature or in the refrigerator until firm. To serve, cut into 1-inch squares.
