Ria's Collection: HONEY NUT FUDGE

Tuesday, December 8, 2015


Ithink Fudge is best associated with Christmas. Especially this Nestle Toll House White Chocolate Fudge with Honey Roasted Peanuts in it. It is one of the prettiest fudge that I've made so far. When I first read about this fudge on Nestle's website, I was really intrigued. This is my first time making a fudge with white chocolate and it didn't disappoint me one bit. It's a quick one and sets very well.
When you are thinking of making gift hampers this season,to share with family and friends, this one would fit the bill perfectly. Just make sure they are well chilled all the time or else, it might get a bit soft at the bottom. It will not be melting soft but a little bit sticky soft. This recipe called for 1 1/2 cups of sugar which I think is a little too much sweetness for us. Remember, we are using Nestle Toll House Premier White Morsels too,which is a little more sweet than the milk or dark chocolate. I would suggest that you use about a cup and maybe 1 teaspoon more of sugar for this recipe,if you like your fudge to be on the less sweeter side. It's totally upto you.

I fell in love with honey roasted nuts a long time ago. That was during my Bangalore days when we would simply roam around the malls over the weekends,having nothing else better to do. There wasa little kiosk in Garuda Mall that sold different kinds of nuts. They were really good and a bit expensive for how much you can get. Then I tried making those at home for Appa's 50th birthday party. It was a huge success and I have shared that recipe with you all on this blog.You can use honey roasted almonds or any other nuts instead of the honey roasted peanuts. It must be honey roasted though,otherwise it might be a little too plain.
