Unicorn. Fudge. Two of my favorite words. As a fan of both unicorns and baking, I just about lost it when I saw these very words appear in a title on a Cupcake Jemma YouTube video. Cupcake Jemma owns a bakery in London and every week she shares a different delicious recipe… if you’re anything like me you’ll probably want to try almost every recipe she posts! Normal fudge isn’t my fave sweet treat, but this recipe makes something that is much more magical than solidified sugar, trust me.
Here’s what you’ll need:
110g butter (you can use unsalted if you have)
120g fresh/double cream
320g caster sugar
140g white marshmallows (mini ones are best)
225g white chocolate
An array of unicorny sprinkles
Here’s what you’ll do:
- Line a dish/tin with tin foil and spray the foil with some non-stick cooking spray. An 8-inch square tin would be perfect, but you can use whatever you already own. Just make sure the dish is relatively deep.
- Put the butter, caster sugar, and cream into a large pot. Bring this mixture to the boil on a medium heat. This will take a little while, but just be patient. Stir the mixture every now and then until it starts to bubble. On the same medium heat, stir the boiling mixture for four minutes.
- When the four minutes are up, remove the mixture from the heat and add the white chocolate and marshmallows. The heat from the cream/sugar/butter mixture needs to melt these new additions, so make sure you have chopped the chocolate and the marshmallows into smaller pieces. (I found it easiest to tear the marshmallows in two as they just stick on scissors.)
- Evenly divide the fudge into three equal parts and use the food colouring to colour the mixture into whichever unicorny colours your heart desires.
- As you finish mixing each colour, spread it into the tin in an even layer, creating three beautiful rainbow layers.
- Add sprinkles to the top of the fudge, making sure to press them in gently so they don’t fall off. Finish it off with some twinkly edible glitter.
- Leave the fudge to cool down to room temperature and then put it in the fridge to set for about an hour or until it is completely firm.
- Cut your delicious fudge into little squares and indulge in the yumminess or share if you can bare to part with it.
