Tips to Make Strawberries & Cream Fudge
- Making strawberry fudge is ridiculously easy. You’re just going to melt your chocolate chips with your sweetened condensed milk and then fold in your food coloring. No sour cream, no candy thermometer, no evaporated milk, just chocolate and sweetened condensed milk and food coloring. Repeat with the second layer and you’re ready!
- To make sure you can get your fudge out of the pan, the easiest thing is to use parchment paper sprayed with cooking spray. Pour your chocolate mixture into the prepared pan and let it set. It’s that easy. Do not, however line your pan with foil–it will stick to the fudge.
- When you cool your fudge, you can let it sit on the counter and set to room temperature or you can put it in the fridge and let it chill. Either will work, but the fridge is much faster.
- You can modify your strawberry fudge recipe to basically be anything you’d like. To make your fudge unique for any holiday or event, just add some fun pops:
- Little heart sprinkles
- Marshmallow Cream (or is it Marshmallow Creme?!)
- Dried strawberry bits
