Tips for Making Butterbeer Fudge
- Butterscotch chips are what give this butterbeer fudge recipe its base flavor; don’t make any substitutes for this. The butterscotch layer is rich, creamy, and decadent.
- You might have learned to melt your butterscotch and white chocolate chips, to stir constantly in a saucepan or double boiler over medium heat (I did). Using the microwave, setting a timer, and removing the chips from the heat quickly will give you the same results faster.
- Instead of marshmallow crème or sweetened condensed milk, which are used in many recipes, the vanilla frosting is what makes this recipe so light and smooth and a bonus is that it keeps the cost down by limiting the ingredients.
- Store fudge in an air-tight container on the counter or freeze it for up to 3 months (thaw on the counter).
- A friend asked me recently which pan I prefer to use when I make my fudge. To be honest, I’m not SUPER picky about my pans but I do like using a square pan like this one so that all of my cubes of fudge are the same and neatly shaped and release quickly from the prepared pan using parchment paper or wax paper.
