I really enjoy white chocolate. If you do as well, or know someone who does, this is for you. It's creamy, soft and rich. I think the quality of the white chocolate is important, I used Guittard Choc Au lait vanilla chips, I love those things, I eat them out of the bag if they are around.

This recipe actually comes off of the back of the package, with a few modifications.

It's really easy to make too!

White Walnut Fudge

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp salt
2 tablespoons butter cut in 1 inch pieces
2 cups white chocolate chips, or one 12 oz bag
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts


Line an 8x8 square pan with parchment paper and grease it.

Combine sugar, corn syrup, heavy cream and salt in a large heavy pot.

Bring to a boil over medium heat, and boil until the temperature reaches 225 on a candy thermometer, about 10 minutes.

When it reaches 225, remove from heat and add butter and chips stirring vigorously until melted and smooth. Mix in vanilla and walnuts. Pour into prepared pan. Cool in refrigerator for an hour before cutting into small squares.
