Creamy white fudge loaded with tasty jellybeans!

Yummy Jellybean Fudge is the perfect treat for Easter! Creamy white fudge loaded with tasty jellybeans! A great dessert your guests will love.

I’m not sure if you’re aware, but Easter might be one of my favorite holidays ever. Why? Jellybeans. The End. Not just any Jellybean, but my absolute favorite treat of all time? Starburst® Jellybeans. It’s a true story. If you follow Who Needs a Cape? on Facebook you have probably heard me talk about them. (ps my mouth is watering as I write about my Starburst® Jellybean love).

This year I wanted to have even more ways to enjoy Starburst® Jellybeans. I mean there is a limit to how many bags I can eat (no there isn’t but it sounds better if I say there is right?). I decided to make a sweet creation of Jellybean Fudge, because why wouldn’t I? It actually seems so natural for me – a way to combine fudge and Jellybeans? Yes sign me up!

I’m going to test your Starburst® Jellybean knowledge. Did you know there are 3 different bags to buy (notice I did NOT say choose from – you’re going to want all 3 so just go ahead and save yourself the trouble. When you’re at Kroger, buy all 3). There are Starburst® Original, Starburst® Sour, and last but not least Starburst® FaveREDS Jellybeans. While I was skipping (yes I was happy enough to skip) through Kroger, I was trying to decide which Starburst® I wanted to make into my Jellybean Fudge (the answer *spoiler* is Original). Kroger had all 3  Starburst® Original, Starburst® Sour, and Starburst® FaveREDS Jellybeans! YEA Kroger!

I’m not the only obsessed lady! Not only do they go great in my Jellybean Fudge, they are the perfect candy snack for in the bowl on the table, the Easter Baskets, and surprise presents for me (If you need my address…).

Line a square baking dish, mine was 9×9 with aluminum foil, leave some extra at the top so you will have handles to lift hardened fudge out of pan.

In a large saucepan over med-high heat, add sugar, butter, salt and heavy cream. Stir until combined. Allow mixture to come to a rolling boil, this is an active boil with bubbles everywhere. As soon as you see this, set timer for 4 minutes and whisk continually for 4 minutes, this is the most IMPORTANT step. Turn heat off and remove from heat immediately.
