Cinnamon fudge is a great take-along hostess gift. We know you’ve got at least one more party coming up!
Christmas is over. But if you’re like me, you still have holiday parties to attend! (or maybe you’re reading this blog post in June!). Either way, this Cinnamon Fudge is the perfect year round treat!
As a kid, making sugar cookies, I used to be obsessed with putting as many cinnamon red-hots onto my cookies as possible. The more, the merrier! I LOVE cinnamon.
Today’s Cinnamon Fudge recipe uses those Hershey’s Cinnamon Morsels. I have a hard time finding them at my grocery store, but when I do (it’s usually at Walmart) I stock up! I’ve also ordered them on Amazon by the case, super easy and inexpensive!
I used my favorite fudge recipe base to get this going, and then instead of using white chocolate chips, I used the Cinnamon Chips. Oh my gosh, the depth of flavor is incredible.
As you can see, I didn’t let them melt 100% like I usually do with the white chocolate. While there were still some bits of cinnamon chips left, I poured this into my prepared pan to set. Another genius decision, if I do say so myself!
A few notes about making today’s fudge recipe:
- Place your marshmallow fluff and cinnamon chips in the bowl of an electric mixer. Set that aside while your prepare the butter/sugar/cream mixture on the stove
- You want your stovetop mixture to come to a rolling boil. Once it does, let it boil vigorously for 4 minutes (set your timer)! And be sure to stir CONSTANTLY!
- Using your electric mixer (with a whisk attachment), pour your hot mixture over the cinnamon chips and marshmallow…then turn it on medium to blend. This will melt the cinnamon chips, stop it before they are completely melted (make sure you scrape down the sides of your bowl too)!
- Pour this into a prepared baking dish. I use an 8 or 9-inch square pan lined with parchment paper. This makes it easy to remove once it’s set up (and clean up is a breeze)!
- If you’re making this ahead of time (you can make it 1-2 weeks in advance, if you store it in the refrigerator) don’t cut it until the day you serve it. This keeps the fudge fresher and it won’t dry out! ENJOY!
If you make this fudge, let me know what you think!! It’s up there as one of my favorites right now!
