I love Root Beer. Root Beer Floats are a favorite of mine. They bring me back to my childhood. That is what inspired me to create this yummy Root Beer Float Fudge recipe! Root Beer and Vanilla ice cream flavors swirl together to create fudge that tastes just like a Root Beer Float!
In 1889, Willoughby M. McCormick went door to door selling one of McCormick & Company’s first products, Root Beer Extract. From there, the product quickly rose in popularity and led to a trending sensation of root beer floats and root beer home brewing in the early 1900s. Have you ever made homemade root beer? It’s amazing! You can make homemade root beer with the McCormick Root Beer Extract!
