Do you think it’s too early to start posting Christmas recipes? I’m in the Christmas baking mood so don’t be surprised if I start posting some festive recipes in the next week or so!
This Coffee and Bailey’s Irish Cream Fudge is not very Christmas-y but I did freeze it to share with friends and family over the holidays. Our family can only eat so many treats that I have to start freezing them or giving them away!
I think I’ve made fudge once before but it’s been so long that I barely remember. I just know that some of the homemade fudge that I’ve had in the past have tasted like a mouthful of sugar (gross!). This recipe called for marshmallow fluff so I figured it would probably give it a smooth texture rather than a gritty texture that I’ve had before.
When you stir in the marshmallow fluff the mixture seems a little runny but don’t worry it hardens perfectly in the fridge. I made mine in a 8X8 pan and I got a nice thick fudge but this recipe would also work great in a 9X9 pan if you want more pieces that aren’t as thick. When I was cutting it up for the pictures I ran my knife through hot water, dried it off and it cut perfect slices with no problem. Of course I had to taste-test it while I was cutting it and it was delicious! The flavor is subtle and the marshmallow fluff kept the fudge silky and smooth. If you’re a fan of coffee and a fan of Bailey’s then you’ll love this Coffee and Bailey’s Irish Cream Fudge!
