This recipe miraculously appeared in my inbox when I needed a little something extra to take to a bake sale.
Beautiful pink sweet strawberry fudge. Can you believe it - only 2 ingredients!
I knew I so totally had to make it - it would be quick, simple, and look beautiful on a plate. A few pieces per plate would fetch a nice profit at the bake sale. And I had most of the ingredients in my house. That sounds so funny, doesn't it, since there are only 2 ingredients...
So here's how I compensated...
SPH Super Easy Gluten Free Strawberry Fudge Recipe
1 T. (from a 3 oz. package) strawberry Jell-o
1 container Betty Crocker Rich and Creamy Vanilla Frosting
2 T. butter (omit if using the white chocolate chips)
1 12-oz. package Wilton white candy melts (I also had red on hand, and debated about using those instead)
*OR* 1 12-oz. package white chocolate chips
Combine Jell-o and frosting. Melt butter into candy melts, and combine with frosting. Line a 9x9 baking pan with foil, and butter it well. Pour frosting mixture into pan, and allow to set in fridge for about 30 minutes.
Now if you're a purist, and you want either plain white or regular chocolate fudge, this recipe works for those as well. Simply use the plain white frosting with the butter and candy melts or chocolate chips, or chocolate frosting with chocolate candy melts/butter or chocolate chips.
I began playing with other flavor profiles in my mind, too - like adding some orange extract to either the white or chocolate fudge. Maybe some coffee liquer? Or melting up some red-hot candies with the red candy melts? Lots of ideas! So I came up with this one - kind of a St. Valentine's Day type flavor. This is the fudge in the photo above...
SPH Super Easy Gluten Free Chocolate Covered Cherry Fudge Recipe
1 container Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy Cherry Frosting
1 12-oz. package Wilton white candy melts + 3 T. butter **OR**
1 12-oz. package white chocolate chips
@ 3 T. Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy Chocolate Frosting
@2-3 T. cream or milk
Make cherry fudge as above. Pour mixture into well-buttered, foiled pan, and allow to chill for about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, melt chocolate frosting and cream together (think ganache), and pour over fudge about 10 minutes before it's done setting. This chocolate glaze does not set entirely, but it sure tastes good! Cut into squares and enjoy.
So make a quick batch of super easy fudge, and take a plate to that Super Bowl party!
