When I think tuxedos, I instantly think of elegance and richness. This tuxedo fudge definitely has both! The presentation is gorgeous, with the contrasting two-tone look (you’d never guess it’s so easy to achieve!), and the flavor is decadently rich and full. The sweetness of the white chocolate is tempered by the richer flavor of the semi-sweet layer to make a dessert that is just about as close to perfection as possible.
What else do I like about this fudge? It’s pretty much no-fail. There’s no candy thermometer, no fancy equipment – just you, a couple of mixing bowls, and a sauce pan. I also like that you can take the idea and run with it. The two layers are made using the same base, you just melt in different kinds of chocolate chips. Since that’s the case, what’s to stop you from melting in peanut butter chips? Or dark chocolate? Nothing. That’s what. Of course, if you chose the peanut butter option, you would be losing the tuxedo coloring, but then you could call it something else. Like Reeses fudge. Hmmmm. I see no downside to this…
Layered semi-sweet and white chocolate fudge - elegant and decadent!
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup butter
- 7 oz marshmallow creme
- 1 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 1/4 cups white chocolate chips
- Place the semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1/2 of the marshmallow creme in one mixing bowl.
- Place the white chocolate chips and 1/2 of the marshmallow creme in another mixing bowl.
- In a sauce pan, melt 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup heavy cream, and 1/4 cup butter over medium heat.
- Bring to a boil and let boil for 3 minutes.
- Pour mixture into mixing bowl with semi-sweet chocolate chips. Stir until chips are melted and ingredients well mixed.
- Flatten semi-sweet fudge into greased 9x9 pan. Use a spoon sprayed with cooking spray to smooth the top of the fudge.
- Bring 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup heavy cream, and 1/4 cup butter to a boil over medium heat. Allow to boil for 3 minutes.
- Pour mixture into mixing bowl with white chocolate chips. Stir until chips are melted and ingredients are well-mixed.
- Pour white chocolate fudge over semi-sweet fudge. Use spoon sprayed with cooking spray to smooth the top of the fudge.
- Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour to set.
- You're actually doing the same procedure twice - once for the semi-sweet layer and once for the white chocolate. I actually do these at the same time. As long as you watch your saucepans carefully and don't let the sugar-cream mixture burn, there's no reason you can't do both at once and cut your prep time in half!
