How do you gauge how great a party is? By the food and drinks, of course! What better way to guarantee a killer party than to combine the two into one fantastic treat. That’s exactly what we did to create a must-have holiday party dessert that your guests won’t be able to stop eating.
Festive Fireball Fudge is where it’s at this Christmas season. A creamy white chocolate fudge is spiked with just the right amount of Fireball Whisky then finished off with festive red swirls. Not only does this fudge taste great, but it looks amazing on any holiday table.
Festive Fireball Fudge is pretty much foolproof, but only if you follow the directions. Ghirardelli white baking chips are the secret and crucial ingredient for this dish. Use of other brands, including Nestle and Hershey, will result in a gummy or ultra-soft fudge. Ghirardelli white baking chips are carried at most WalMart stores across the country. While the cost is slightly higher, the result is totally worth it!

FESTIVE FIREBALL FUDGE
2 – 11 ounce bags Ghirardelli white chocolate baking chips (do not use a brand other than Ghirardelli!)
1 – 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup Fireball Whisky
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Red food coloring
Grease an 8 x 8-inch baking pan and line with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
Fill a small saucepan 1/4 full with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer.
In a large heat-proof bowl, stir together all ingredients (except the food coloring). Place bowl on top of simmering pan of water. Stir frequently until the chocolate and butter have melted and mixture is smooth.
Place 1/4 cup of melted mixture in a small bowl and color with red food coloring. Pour remaining fudge into prepared pan. Drizzle red fudge on top and use a toothpick to create a swirl affect.
Chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
When ready to serve, remove fudge from pan and peel off parchment paper. Cut fudge into squares or use decorative cookie cutters to create festive shapes.
