How to Make Strawberry Fudge: Step by Step
Making Valentine’s day fudge would be a fun couples activity. This fudge recipe is not too difficult, just follow these steps.
Step 1. Melt the marshmallow, chocolate and butter
Melt the marshmallow fluff in the microwave for 15 seconds, then add it and the red food coloring (if using) to the strawberry puree and stir to combine.
Melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir and microwave again for another 30 seconds and stir again. Repeat this process until it is fairly smooth.
Melt the butter in a separate bowl in the microwave or in a saucepan over medium heat until it reaches around 235-240 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 2. Combine all ingredients
Pour the butter and the strawberry marshmallow mixture over the melted white chocolate. Stir and let the mixture sit for five more minutes to allow the chocolate to fully melt.
Stir the fudge mixture until well combined then check that the temperature of the fudge has reached 235 degrees Fahrenheit with a candy thermometer. If it hasn’t, heat it in the microwave for 20 seconds, stir and check again. Repeat this process until the chocolate reaches 235 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 3. Prepare the pan
Line an 8×8 or 6×9 baking pan with parchment paper and spray with non-stick butter spray. Here is a great video to watch on how to line a pan with parchment paper.
Pour the fudge into the prepared baking dish and sprinkle on the sprinkles.
Step 4. Chill until set
Refrigerate for 3-4 hours or until set.
Slice and serve immediately.
What If My Fudge Doesn’t Set Properly?
If your fudge does not set properly, simply add the fudge to a saucepan over low medium heat and stir until the chocolate has melted down a bit, then add 2 tablespoons of heavy cream to the pan, stir and heat again until it reaches around 235-240 degrees Fahrenheit. Add it back to the cooling pan and let it set up in the fridge.
Store this fudge in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
