Homemade Candy Week: Chocolate Snowswirl Fudge

It was a quiet afternoon last year on the Delaware Coast in Bethany Beach – just after Labor Day so most of the summer folks had returned home for the season. My husband and I and a few of our friends had just polished off some amazing soft-shell crab sandwiches (with plenty of Old Bay!) when we found ourselves wandering into The Fudge Factory, a small outpost brimming with dozens of different types of fudge. We were literally kids in a candy store, sampling away and bringing back more peanut butter, praline and maple fudge than the rest of our group back at the condo could handle.

The Chocolate Snowswirl Fudge recipe I’m sharing today – the third and final installment of Homemade Candy Week – adds a swirly layer of marshmallow to the top of classic rich, chocolate and walnut fudge. I photographed this batch nearly two weeks ago and it’s still perfectly creamy in the fridge. I’m looking forward to unloading the remaining pieces on my family in the days to come, as it’s been way to easy to reach in a grab a little bite every time I’ve craved something sweet. 🙂

  1. Marshmallows in anything are a winner in my book :). It’s nice that they stay fresh for so long so you can make them in advance.

    What a fun day that was! I think I was largely responsible for the over-abundance of fudge we brought back for the condo 🙂 This looks like a good project with Miss Adeline on the rainy days we’ve been having lately — will let you know how it turns out!
