Let me tell you about this fudge. I saw it posted as unicorn fudge. I wanted to make unicorn fudge. I even bought all of the ingredients for it a while ago. And then they sat. But see, my husband's birthday (I still can't get used to saying that, my husband!) is in 3 days, and I wanted to make a treat. But my husband probably wouldn't want unicorn fudge, so I changed it up a little. I used these awesome new sprinkles I just got -- which are aptly named Galaxy Twinkle Sprinkles -- which I figured were more "manly" than unicorn sprinkles. I used the original purple color that they recommended, but any color would work. I even thought about swirling a few colors, but figured I'd start off simple. I'm pretty sure I'll be making this again, so I have time to test out all of my new theories!
The best part of this fudge? It's vanilla white chocolate. And B loves vanilla fudge!
It's also super easy to make. Like one bowl, straight into the pan, and then chill. Easy peasy. And delicious, too!
Vanilla Fudge with Sprinkles
Recipe from Sprinkles for Breakfast
24 oz white chocolate chips
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Purple food coloring (you can use any color, really. I went with purple gel coloring, and used 4 drops to get the shade of purple I liked)
Sprinkles -- lots of sprinkles. I didn't measure mine out, I just shook and shook until the entire top of the fudge was covered.
Prepare an 8x8 inch pan with parchment (I used a 9x9 inch pan since that's what I had).
Place white chocolate, heavy cream, and vanilla extract into a microwave safe bowl.
Melt in 30 second intervals, stirring between, until smooth.
Add in a few drops of purple (or whatever color you choose) food coloring.
Keep adding until you get the desired color.
Pour into prepared pan.
Smooth with a knife or an offset spatula.
Press lightly into the fudge.
Place into the fridge for at least an hour.
Cut into squares. I recommend small squares -- it's super sweet!
Let fudge come to room temperature before serving.
