Strawberries are my favorite summer fruit, it pairs well with all kinds of chocolate. Here strawberry is matched with white chocolate in a super simple to make fudge.
Fudge is incredibly easy to make, with only a few ingredients and no real "baking" steps. It makes a great homemade gift or a sweet treat for the family.
Fudge is always my go to when I feel like something sweet but can't be bothered putting in the effort of baking something time consuming.
White chocolate, although delicious, is the most difficult to work with when baking due to the very low cocoa content. When you're wanting a white chocolate that melts well it's actually best to not go for a good quality eating chocolate (which is absolutely my preference when working with milk or dark chocolate!), look out for a baking-specific white chocolate in the baking isle of your supermarket.
Strawberry and White Chocolate Fudge
Makes about 30 pieces
400 g tin condensed milk
1 Cup caster sugar
100 g Butter
200 g White chocolate
3 tsp Strawberry essence
1 drop pink food colouring
1. Heat the condensed milk, sugar, and butter together in a saucepan over a medium heat until the butter is melted and everything is well combined.
2. Just before the mixture in the saucepan begins to boil, turn off the heat and add the chocolate, strawberry essence, and food colouring. Mix until the chocolate is melted and well combined into the mixture.
3. Pour into a greased or lined tin and refrigerate until set. Once set, cut into small squares and store in an airtight container. If your kitchen is very warm, store in the fridge.
