Strawberry Shortcake Fudge Recipe

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

Short bread

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.
