Gum Drop Fudge
1-1/2 pounds white candy coating, coarsely chopped (or white chocolate bars/chips - the better quailty, the better the melt)
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1/8 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups chopped gumdrops ( I use Red & Green Swedish Fish cut up for Christmas)
Line a 9-in. square pan with foil; set aside. In a heavy saucepan,
combine the candy coating, milk and salt. Cook and stir over low
heat until candy coating is melted. Remove from the heat; stir in
vanilla and gumdrops.
Spread into prepared pan. Cover and refrigerate until firm. Using
foil, remove fudge from the pan; cut into 1-in. squares. Store in an
airtight container at room temperature. Yield: about 3 pounds.
