Back in my day, we used to call this Dipsey Doodle Fudge. My kids tell me I need to “get with It’ as it is now called Drunk Santa Fudge. Regardless of what you want to call it, here it is. I gotta say, it’s pretty darn good and it makes you happy.
- 2 cups of white chocolate chips
- 8 cups of confectioner sugar
- 1 cup of vodka or gin
- Colored sprinkles (optional)
- Line a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with parchment paper. (Cut the parchment paper a little bigger so you can “lift” out the candy.)
- Microwave chocolate chips for 70 to 90 seconds. Check and stir till melted.
- Whisk the vodka/gin and confectioner sugar in a large bowl. It should look like cake frosting when you’re done.
- And melted chocolate to bowl and stir well. You need to do this quick and fast because the chocolate tends to harden quickly. Pour mixture into lined baking pan.
- (This is when you use the sprinkles if you chose to use them.)
- Let the fudge stand for about an hour. Lift out of pan and cut into whatever shape you want. The recipe will yield about 50 one inch pieces. (I cut mine bigger so my yield is about 30.)
Note—If you feel the candy is too soft, refrigerate till it is the consistency you want.
Another note—Do not eat too much. It kind of sneaks up on you, if you know what I mean.
