Marshmallow Candy Cane Fudge Truffles

Yesterday was one of those days that I really tried to do more than I could handle.  Well, lately, most days kind of go that way, but yesterday especially.

I knew I needed to do a test run on some two-ingredient fudge to decide if it was going to be added to my holiday baking list.  So, after lunch, I settled Grace down to watch a Christmas special and I whipped up a batch of fudge.

Of course, leave it to me to run into a jam while preparing such a simple recipe.  I needed to line to my dish with foil and I had just used up the last of our roll when I wrapped up the leftovers from lunch.  But I had already started to melt the chocolates, so there really wasn't any turning back.  I decided to just give it a go without lining the pan.  Figuring if it didn't come out of the pan nicely, it didn't really matter since it was just a test-run and really only Joe and I would see the ugly mess.  This was more of a trial to test out the taste and texture which, in the end, were perfect!

Since I was having a heck of a time cutting and serving pretty little squares of fudge from the dish, I decided to just scrape some out and roll into balls to form truffles!

What a perfectly delicious solution to my kitchen mishap!

Marshmallow Candy Cane Fudge Truffles 

  • 12 oz. bag semi-sweet chocolate chips 
  • tub of chocolate frosting 
  • handful of mini marshmallows
  • crushed candy canes
  • Melt your chocolate either in the microwave or double boiler.  
  • Stir in marshmallows if using.  
  • Remove from heat and stir in the frosting. 
  • Spread the mixture into an 8x8 pan.  
  • Sprinkle the crushed candy cane over top and press slightly into the fudge.  
  • Allow to set in fridge for 1/2 an hour to an hour.  
  • Using a spoon, spatula, or ice cream scoop, scrape the fudge from the pan and roll into balls about an inch in size, then roll the balls into more crushed candy cane.
