Ingredients

Instructions

  • Line a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with non-stick foil. Lightly butter.
  • In a heavy bottomed 3 quart saucepan, combine sugar, half and half, corn syrup, pineapple, and butter.
  • Bring contents to a boil over medium-low heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
  • Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until the contents reach 236°F or soft ball stage (234°F - 240°F). I use this digital candy thermometer.
  • Remove from heat and stir in extract.
  • Stir for 3 minutes until the candy starts to thicken slightly.
  • Stir in chips until fully melted and combined.
  • Stir in marshmallow creme.
  • Pour into the prepared pan and let cool to room temperature.
  • Refrigerate until fudge is completely set, at least 2 hours.
  • Cut into pieces. Store in an airtight container. For firmer fudge, refrigerate.
