Ube White Chocolate Fudge - maybe it sounds a little odd, but it's SO good!
A couple months back, I was wandering the aisles of Seafood City, a giant Filipino grocery store in Mississauga. The place is a *wonderland*, and I feel like I find something new every time we're in there. It's where I first discovered my love of Calamansi anything, and where I go to stock up on that juice.
This time, I came across Jersey's Ube flavoured Sweetened Condensed Creamer. I'm a big fan of sweetened condensed milk in general, so I couldn't resist buying some of this to try. I made the mistake of only buying one can (It's WAY too easy to spend more than you plan to, at that store!), so I left it in the pantry, waiting till I decided on what one thing I wanted to try making with it.
As you know, I've been converting over recipes lately. One of those was my Festive Easy Fudge, which gave me the idea I settled on: Easy Fudge. I decided that white chocolate would be a better base - both in flavour and appearance - than a milk or dark chocolate, and here we are!
It worked spectacularly! It was creamy and satisfying, with a really fun flavour - kind of floral, a little fruity, maybe... with a hint of coconut? Delicious.
A few notes:
1. The Jersey Sweetened Condensed Creamer comes in a few flavours, we've only tried the Ube. Next time, I'll be picking up the mango and melon flavours to try with this same recipe. I bet it'll be fantastic!
2. I've never seen the creamer anywhere but Seafood City. If you're lucky to live near one, I highly suggest going there! If not, I'd see if you have any other Filipino grocery stores nearby. I'm usually against using hard to find ingredients for anything on this blog, but a. this was too much fun not to, and b. I'm all for encouraging people to visit this store!
3. The recipe doesn't take an entire can of creamer. You have to measure out 1/4 cup to NOT use in it - you can store that in the fridge for a week or two. Drizzle it on pancakes, mix it into coffee or tea, or just eat it with a spoon.
So, my apologies if this one is not doable on account of ingredients. If you'd like to try one that's more accessible, I recommend the Festive Fudge linked above, my Easy Blood Orange Cranberry Dark Chocolate Fudge, and/or my Easy Blood Orange Cranberry White Chocolate Fudge.

|Interested in Gluten-free cooking and baking? You'll LOVE Beyond Flour: A Fresh Approach to Gluten-Free Cooking and Baking!
How many times have you come across a gluten-free recipe claiming to be “just as good as the normal version!”, only to wind up with weird textures, aftertastes, etc? Most gluten-free recipes are developed by taking a “normal” recipe, and swapping in a simulated “all purpose” gluten-free flour. “Beyond Flour” takes a different approach: developing the recipe from scratch. Rather than swapping out the flour for an “all purpose” mix, I use various alternative flours as individual ingredients – skillfully blending flavours, textures, and other properties unique to each flour. Supporting ingredients and different techniques are also utilized to achieve the perfect end goal, not just a “reasonable facsimile”. Order your copy here.

Crisp, flaky crackers…without the sandy texture. Hybrid tortillas that: look and act like flour tortillas, with the taste of fresh roasted corn! Imagine chewy, delicious cookies that *everyone* will want to eat! Imagine BAGELS. If you’ve cooked from “Beyond Flour”, you already know that these fantasies can be reality – it’s all in the development of the recipes. Order your copy here.
