Festive Fudge - Blogmas 2014 Day 4

Hey Guys!

It's Meg! That's right, I'm back, but this time with a more up-beat post! Tamsin has enrolled me to write a  series of blog posts giving you some ideas for cute, tasty, festive treats! These will be ideal for giving as gifts, or simply to put on your dessert table at Christmas! 

First up: No Cook Festive Fudge!

Now, you may be thinking, fudge? Isn’t that really difficult to make? And truth be told, yes it is. However, the many hours I have spent in the kitchen experimenting with these sweet-treats has enabled me to find an easy alternative. Plus, these sweet treats will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks! 

Equipment You Will Need!

A large mixing bowl
A whisk
A sieve
A large spoon
23cm square baking tin or silicon tray

Ingredients!

200g unsalted butter (softened)
200g condensed milk
800g icing-sugar
95g pot of sprinkles of your choice

Method!

1. Chop the butter into small squares and place in your mixing bowl, add the condensed milk and beat together.
2. Once you have thoroughly combined these two ingredients, add the icing-sugar bit by, mixing well after each addition. Once all the icing-sugar has been added, mix thoroughly and spoon into your baking tin.
3. Taking your sprinkles, you want to evenly cover the top of your fudge. Once done, using the back of a spoon, gently press down on the sprinkles to make sure they stay in place.
4. Place flat in the fridge, and allow to chill overnight.
5. In the morning, remove your fudge from it’s tin and cut into around 80 small squares.



See, it’s as easy as that!

For those of you who are looking to give these away as cute gifts, all you are going to need are some cellophane bags, some festive ribbon, a label, and a pen!

 

Taking your label, write a cute message to the receiver of your gift. (You may want to check their list of allergies first!)


Place several of the fudge squares into a cellophane bag, attach your label to the ribbon, and tie-up neatly in a bow!

Hope you enjoy this festive treat, and be sure to keep an eye out for next weeks instalment!
