White Chocolate Blueberry Fudge
White Chocolate Blueberry Fudge is made with a ‘new’ to me product, a salt called: Icelandic Blueberry Sea Salt. Icelandic sea salt is from a wonderful company called Nordur Salt. Nordur Salt Company was kind enough to send me a few samples of their great sea salt and one of the samples I received was for this delicious blueberry sea salt. Nordur is an Icelandic word and it means ‘going north’.
Blueberry Icelandic Sea Salt
When I first decided to make this fudge, I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out. After all, this fudge is made with mini marshmallows, white chocolate chips, ground almonds, dried blueberries and blueberry sea salt. Not your usual fudge ingredients. I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I decided to jump in with both feet, and I’m so glad that I did. White Chocolate Blueberry Fudge turned out fantastic.

Several Flavors of Salt
Norður Salt comes in several shapes and sizes. From the pure Norður arctic sea salt flakes to the colorful and tasty flavors of blueberry, licorice, rhubarb, and smoked salt. Flavored salts are made in collaboration with small family businesses and celebrates our Icelandic heritage. There is a salt for every occasion. Sea Salt makes a beautiful and usable gift, for professional restaurants or simply for your own kitchen counter.
Let me reassure you, White Chocolate Blueberry Fudge is fantastic! The flavor combination works great together and believe it not, this fudge isn’t overly sweet. Dried blueberries add just the right amount of blueberry flavor and white chocolate is always delicious. I went with almonds and almond extract because I think blueberry and almond are made for each other. Dried blueberries can be found in most larger grocery stores.
If you don’t have almond extract to use in this recipe, you can substitute with vanilla extract. I had whole almonds, which I ground in my mini chopper. You can easily substitute ground or chopped almonds if you prefer. A quarter teaspoon of Blueberry Icelandic Sea Salt is added to the fudge for flavor. Sea salt lightly sprinkled on each piece of fudge. This adds that extra layer of flavor for an ‘oh yeah’ to every delicious bite.
