This Strawberry Fudge is an easy no boil recipe that's made with a base of white chocolate. I've added strawberry flavouring and freeze dried strawberries for the strawberry element. It's basically impossible to get fresh strawberries to work in this kind of recipe, so I had to settle for flavouring. However, freeze dried strawberries are real strawberries and they also provide an intense hit of strawberry flavour! Plus, they look so pretty sprinkled on top of the fudge. I also coloured the fudge pink with some food colouring to make it look extra pretty. This would be such a cute gift for Mother's Day or Valentine's Day!
How to make Strawberry Fudge
In a pan on a low heat, melt the white chocolate and condensed milk together. Then stir in the sieved icing sugar, pink food colouring and strawberry flavouring.
Pour the mixture into a lined tin and sprinkle the freeze dried strawberries on top. Then put it in the fridge to set overnight.
Tips for making the Strawberry Fudge:
- The strawberry flavouring I used was by a brand called LorAnn. There are lots of different strawberry flavouring available so different brands will have varied strengths, so please read the instructions to find out how much to add to the mixture. Or add a little, then taste the fudge mixture and add more if needed.
- If you can't get hold of strawberry flavouring, you can add extra freeze dried strawberries and stir them throught the fudge.
- The pink food colouring is not essential, but it does look pretty!
