Expert Tips

White vanilla baking chips and baking bars are similar to white chocolate, but they do not contain cocoa butter. They melt easier than white chocolate.

Extracts are concentrated flavoring distilled from ingredients or left behind after evaporation. For liquid extracts used in baking, the flavoring is commonly stabilized in alcohol. The advantage of using extracts is that small doses can add lots of flavor without altering the composition of recipes. Stored in a cool dark place, liquid extracts keep indefinitely.

To enjoy this treat, you can eat the fudge with a spoon or, to loosen the fudge filling, run a thin-bladed knife along the inside edge of the cookie cutter and slip out the fudge. The cookie cutter can then be washed to use again.
