When I was a little girl I had a Strawberry Shortcake doll – I loved her. She smelt absolutely amazing. In fact she smelt the way this fudge tastes!
Over Christmas we ended up with four tins and packets of short bread. I mean I like short bread but that’s a lot of short bread! So the other day Dorothy and I used some of it to make fudge.
I wish I could say that I’d flavoured and coloured the fudge with real strawberries but that would be a lie 😬
You will need
110g unsalted butter
190g icing sugar
180 ml double cream or alternative
2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
2 teaspoons strawberry flavouring
A little red or pink food colouring gel
Red heart sprinkles
230g white chocolate – chopped into small chunks
- First things first, line a square oven dish with baking paper. Make sure you do this really well!
- Place the marshmallows, butter, cream and sugar in a large pan
- Melt over a medium heat, stirring all the time
- Bring to the boil and hold there for five minutes
- Add the chocolate, and flavouring and mix until melted
- Now add a little food colouring and mix well. Little by little, add more until you get the shade you want
- Pour a little of the fudge mixture into the dish and spread out
- Now place some short read on top. We used around six ‘sticks’ of shortbread
- Pour over the rest of the mixture to evenly cover the short bread
- Tap the dish onto your worktop to remove any bubbles
- Sprinkle love hearts over the top. We added a little but of lustre powder because Dorothy is OBSESSED with sparkles
- Allow to set completely – this can take several hours
- Lift out of the dish using the baking paper and slice into squares
The fudge can get a bit sticky if you keep.ut in the fridge so I recommend leaving it out or just eating it all.
Love Rachel ❤️
