Strawberry Truffle Fudge ~ Secret recipe club March 19th 2012
Secret Recipe Club.The aim of the club is that you are allocated a blog from which you have to select a recipe and try it and blog about it.
My challenge for this month was to cook from Desi's blog SteakNPotatoesKindaGurl. I liked the look of the Fudge recipe and immediately decided to make it. The original recipe can be found here.Changes I made were that I replaced Raspberries with strawberries as I had the seedless strawberry preserve in my larder.I also decorated the top of my fudge with some strawberry flavoured white chocolate swirls and some chocolate eggs .
300g milk Chocolate coarsely chopped
400 grams can sweetened condensed milk
1 and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
60 ml double cream
120 grams strawberry preserve
300 grams milk chocolate coarsely chopped
2 oz strawberry flavoured chocolate melts
2 tablespoons double cream
1/2 teaspoon strawberry essence.
handful mini easter eggs
1.In a microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate and condensed milk.
2.Heat in microwave until chocolate melts, stirring occasionally. Take care not to burn it.
3.Stir in the vanilla and salt. Spread into a pan that is lined with cling film and cool to room temperature.
4.In a microwave-safe bowl, heat strawberry preserves until smooth.
5.Stir in cream and milk chocolate
6.Heat in the microwave until the chocolate melts and stir until smooth.
7.Cool to lukewarm, then pour over the fudge layer.
8.Melt the strawberry chocolate melts in the microwave with two tablespoons of cream and 1/2 teaspoon strawberry essence . Fill a piping bag with the melted chocolate and pipe lines or swirls on top of the fudge.
9.Refrigerate until both layers are completely set, about 1 hour. Cut into 1 inch pieces.
