Root Beer Fudge

This Root Beer Fudge reminds me of my childhood. Not that I ever had root beer fudge as a kid but I did eat a lot of fudge and loved the taste of root beer.

It wasn’t until a handful of years ago that I really noticed that there’s was all kinds of gourmet type fudges out there. As a kid, it was pretty much chocolate or maple fudge.

Fudge is pretty easy to make. The key is to have a good thermometer on hand. The temperature of the mixture is key to a good fudge.

While I prefer a digital thermometer, you can also use an old-school candy thermometer. In my experience, you want to reach a temperature between 237°F and 239°F before removing it from the heat source.

root beer concentrate

I have found that finding Root Beer Concentrate or Root Beer Extract can prove to be pretty challenging. I opted to order mine off of Amazon.

    I must admit I am not a fan of root beer, but after making this fudge for a party, I fell in love with it. It is very creamy. A 5 star in my book.
