Creamy melt in the mouth white chocolate fudge which is made with just a few ingredients. This delicious recipe is quick and makes for a perfect treat or holiday gift for any season. The gorgeous festive color comes from Zaran saffron, which also lends it aromatic spicy notes that go so well with rather sweet white chocolate.
- 16 oz white chocolate (bar or chips)
- 8oz condensed milk (about half a can)
- 3 tbsp soft unsalted butter
- pinch of sea salt
- 1.5 tsp zaran saffron (grind with a pinch of sugar using mortar pestle)
- 1/2 tbsp whole milk, warm
- silvered almonds/pistachios (or any nuts, optional)
Line a square pan ( I used 6 by 6 for thick slices but you can use 9 by 9 for thinner squares) with parchment paper with overhang.
Add warm milk to saffron, mix well to infuse and keep ready.
Place the chocolate chips (or if using bark, break into small pieces), condensed milk and butter, salt in a large bowl, stir well to combine. Place on a double boiler and melt everything over low heat. In about 7-8 minutes, the chocolate mixture will be completely smooth. You can do this step in microwave as well.
Remove from double boiler and add the saffron. Add any nuts if using. Using a spatula, combine everything very well until you do not see any white. Quickly, transfer the mixture to the line pan and spread evenly.
Let the fudge cool down a bit and then set into the fridge for a few hours to set completely. Using a sharp knife, cut into desired squares.
Store in an airtight container for up to a week in fridge.
