St. Patrick's Day Green Fudge Instructions:
Melt butter in a pot over medium heat.
Add sugar and half and half to the pot, stirring until smooth. Continue to stir often scraping the bottom until the mixture comes to a light boil. Add vanilla and continue boiling lightly while stirring constantly for about 4 minutes.
Next, remove the pot from heat and mix in white chocolate chips and marshmallow fluff, stirring until smooth.
Place the pot back on a burner on low heat to keep it warm while stirring occasionally.
Pour small batches of the mixture into individual bowls one at a time. Add food coloring to the bowls to make different shades of green. Be sure to only work with one batch at a time and leave the rest in the pot on low heat to stay warm. If you try to do all of the batches of color at once, they may harden and become less spreadable before you can layer them.
Line a 9 x 9 inch baking pan with parchment paper and top the paper with some cooking oil spray.
Then, pour the first batch of colored mixture into the pan and smooth out with a spoon or spatula.
Continue to make batches of different colors one at a time, and layer them on top of each other in the pan. Be sure to spread each color completely over the last, all of the way to the edge of the pan.
Once you have completed your layers, top off the fudge with some St. Patrick’s Day sprinkles and gently push them into the fudge if needed.
Place the fudge in a freezer until it has hardened and cooled completely (about 1 hr). Then your St. Patrick's Day fudge is finally ready to be sliced and served!
