Here is our second recipe ready for Earth Day, our first recipe was some tasty cookies you can read about them HERE. If you have a sweet tooth then this fudge recipe is definitely for you. I'm not sure we can even eat all of ours as it's incredibly sweet. Though may help me on my late blogging evenings.
To make Earth Day fudge:
YOU WILL NEED:
- 225g (8 oz) Icing sugar
- 50g (2 oz) pink or white marshmallows
- 1 table spoon of milk
- 5og (2 oz) unsalted butter
- Vanilla essence
- blue and green food dye
Put all ingredients aside from the food dye in a bowl and mix together with a spoon.
Then place in a pan over a low hear and stir until all has melted and combined together creating a syrup texture, pour most of it into a bowl and a small amount into another bowl. In the larger bowl add the blue food dye and in the smaller bowl add the green food dye. stir until the colours are mixed properly.
Pour the blue mixture into a large round cake pan like we did or smaller muffin tins if you would like to make a smaller version. Then with your green mixture and using a spoon drizzle the mixture on top of the blue fudge creating the land shapes. I had a picture as reference to follow.
Top tip: Grease your tins with butter or some grease proof paper so it is easy to remove later!
You can see how big our fudge is against our cookies!
Leave your fudge to set in the fridge for about an hour, Please note this fudge is very sticky but that is all part and parcel of having fun in the kitchen!
We are going to slice ours for guests when they come round to visit. (better get inviting!) This recipe is best kept refrigerated until ready to serve,
