Prep:

5 Min

Cook:

15 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 c
butter
14 oz
cinnamon imperials candy
1/2 c
sugar
1/2 tsp
salt
2/3 c
half-n-half
2 c
good quality dark chocolate chips
1 tsp
vanilla
1 jar(s)
marshmallow creme

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Prepare a 9x9 baking dish with food release spray. Set aside.
2
On medium-low heat begin melting the butter in a large, heavy 3 qt. saucepan.
3
Stir in the cinnamon candy, then add the sugar, salt, and half-n-half.
Stir constantly, as the candy begins to melt.
4
When the candy is mostly melted, increase heat to medium. Stir constantly.

Continue to cook and stir until the mixture reaches a rolling boil. Cook hard, stirring constantly, 5 minutes.
5
Remove from heat. Stir in the chocolate chips. Then add the marshmallow creme and vanilla.

Stir vigorously as chocolate melts and marshmallow is thoroughly incorporated.
6
When the ingredients are combined, pour the fudge into the prepared pan.
Allow to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until firm.
7
Serve at room temp.

NOTES:
1) We thought the flavor was better after it sat overnight.
2) I used vanilla, but you may like to try cinnamon flavoring. My daughter suggests cinnamon schnopps :)
3) I use Silk brand soy creamer instead of half-n-half, and you could also substitute evaporated milk.
4) The chocolate I used was 62%. Higher cacao content would be good, but I don't recommend less.
5) My family thinks the texture is perfect for serving "truffle-style", rolled in crushed cinnamon candy or cocoa powder.
6) For holiday or special occasion presentation, consider serving individual pieces in decorative mini paper cups.
