Seeing as how I'm human, I obviously love fudge! And it's kind of an ambition of mine to find 'the perfect fudge recipe'. I usually use the easy one with condensed milk but when I found this recipe I knew I had to give it a try. The recipe is made using a whole jar of marshmallow fluff! In case you've never heard of marshmallow fluff it's basically like liquid marshmallow in a jar, it's amazing! The recipe turned out great, it's super sweet, fluffy and yummy. I'm not sure if it's the perfect recipe but it's still pretty great.
I made the fudge for my friends birthday and thought I would have a go at making heart shaped fudge! It turned out great and shaping fudge with cookie cutters is a really fun idea! If you do decide to give it a go, leave a comment to tell me how it goes!
The fudge recipe is originally from one of my favourite food blogs Jamie Cooks It Up! and you can find it here. But I've 'translated' it here for English people who use grams instead of cups! Good Luck :)
- 728 grams of sugar
- 1 full size can of evaporated milk
- 226 grams of butter
- 124g of chocolate bars (I used Dairy Milk)
- 340g of chocolate chips
- 1 jar of Marshmallow Cream (it's called fluff and is available at all American food stores)
1. Put the sugar, milk and butter into a large sauce pan (the mixture fluffs up loads so use a really big one!)
2. Stir it all together over medium heat and bring it to a boil while you stir. Continue stirring until the mixture has reached a 'hard boil' (this is when the mixture keeps boiling, even while you are stirring) continue cooking and stirring for 5 minutes.
3. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the chocolate bars, chocolate chips and the whole jar of marshmallow cream. Quickly mix all the ingredients together until they are well combined.
4. Pour the fudge into a buttered pan, making sure it's not too thick.
5. Let the fudge set and cool out of the fridge and after it has cooled down wrap up the whole pan and put it in the fridge. Mine was so gooey I ended up having to put it in the freezer but I was in a bit of a hurry!
Once you are 100% sure the fudge is set take it out of the pan. Using a small heart shaped cookie cutter, cut little hearts out of the fudge. I did mine about half hearts and half squares. The fun things about making the hearts is eating the scraps from the edges!
I gave all the heart shaped ones to my friend for her birthday and then I put the square shaped ones in a little bowl by our door!
Happy Monday! Have a great week :)
