White Christmas Fudge
Bring smiles to the holiday festivities with this sweet fudge flecked with candied pineapple and pistachios.
1 cup heavy cream
2/3 cup light corn syrup
3 tablespoons butter
2 cups granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups pistachio nuts
1 1/3 cups chopped candied pineapple
- In a heavy saucepan combine cream, light corn syrup, butter, and sugar. Place over medium heat and stir occasionally until the mixture comes to a full boil. Cook until the syrup reaches 238°F (115°C) on a candy thermometer, or the soft ball stage (forms a soft ball when drizzled into cold water). Remove from heat. Cool to room temperature.
- Beat with a wooden spoon until thick. Add vanilla, shelled pistachio nuts, and chopped candied pineapple.
- Pour into a buttered 9-inch baking pan and refrigerate until firm, and cut into 1-inch squares, if desired.
Makes 81 (1-inch) squares.
