White Chocolate Butterscotch and Walnut Fudge…WOW is that a mouth full to say. This recipe is not the recipe I originally had planned for today. It was a happy accident. I had originally planned to make chocolate fudge. However, when I was testing the recipe it didn’t work out. Now I was prepared for this, as sometimes testing recipes things just don’t work the first time around, so I bought extra ingredients. I forgot to buy extra chocolate though! Luckily I had white chocolate on hand and butterscotch flavoring. This made for great fudge and I was more than happy for this recipe to be a success. The chocolate fudge will have to wait to be retested for another time.
Normally when it comes to fudge I am more of a traditionalist. I like chocolate, peanut butter, or cookie and candy flavors. But as I get older I notice my taste buds changing and growing. This butterscotch fudge isn’t something that I would have enjoyed in the past. It is seriously so delicious. The nice thing about the fudge is that you will be able to taste both the white chocolate and the butterscotch neither one of the flavors overpower one another; they complement each other. The texture is creamy and then has a nice little crunch from walnuts. The walnuts are a great addition because they add a nutty element to the rich fudge.
This recipe is almost identical to my Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe. The only difference is the few additions to some ingredients.
Grab a large pot and over medium heat bring your sugar, milk, and butter to a boil. Boil for 8 minutes. Add the butterscotch flavoring to the mixture before it starts to boil.
After 8 minutes take off heat and add the white chocolate chips and marshmallows. Stir until smooth then stir in the walnuts. Pour into a 9 X 13 lightly greased pan.
Refrigerate the fudge until completely cooled. Cut into squares when fudge is set.
