This easy white chocolate fudge is made with marshmallows. The fudge is super easy because there's no need for a candy thermometer or repeated testings. It comes out perfect every time!

It's also a versatile fudge. Make it festive with coarsely crushed peppermint candy pressed into the top, or add diced or halved candied cherries to candy along with the pecans.

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter

  • 3 cups/18 ounces white chocolate chips (or white chocolate baking chunks)
