Have you ever tried a fudge that was so sweet and bursting with flavour that you jut wanted to eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner?That is exactly how my  8 year old son feels about my  homemade cookies & cream fudge.  If he could eat it every day he would!Whenever I say I am going to make a sweet treat, he always asks if it is going to be the delicious cookies and cream fudge.  He just can't get enough of it!!

Can you believe that Easter is only two weeks away? With Easter on it's way I thought I would make a special Easter treat for him.   This time I decided that rather than making it in a slice pan and cutting it into squares, I would challenge myself and use my Easter silicone moulds.  That way the sweet treats can also be cute little Easter gifts too.This recipe is so simple to make, my kids love helping me in the kitchen to make this.  I don't know if it is because they love cooking with me or they love licking the spoon which is covered in warm gooey fudge.This recipe can be made in the conventional way and also in a thermocooker (such as a Thermomix, Supercook, Cuisine Companion etc).I have included the instructions for both.Ingredients:

  • 450g White chocolate melts
  • 250g Arnotts chocolate ripple biscuits (or similar)
  • 395g Condensed milk
  • Hundreds and Thousands sprinkles
  • Easter Silicone Moulds

Conventional Method:

  1. Sprinkle the Hundreds and Thousands into the bottom of each mould (a pinch or two in each mould). 56553715_1375875579204283_1438076916102856704_n (1)
  2. Place the biscuits into a food processor and process until they resemble crunchy crumbs (set aside)
  3. Place the condensed milk and white chocolate melts into a pan and stirring constantly cook on a low setting on the stove until the chocolate has melted. (you want the setting low so that it doesn't bubble).
  4. Once the chocolate has melted add the biscuit crumbs and stir through whilst still on the stove.
  5. Pour the mixture into a heat proof jug.
  6. Gently spoon or pour the mixture from the jug into each silicone mould. You will need to work a little quickly for this as the mixture will start to set once off the heat. 56391561_320773818611022_5918545335675781120_n (1)
  7. Clean off the excess mixture around the moulds with a cloth.
  8. Put the silicone moulds into the fridge for approximately two hours to set.
  9. Once set you can gently pop out the fudge from the moulds and place them in an air tight container.  Keep them in the fridge until serving. 56990251_563795390797520_3654427968102465536_n

This fudge should last a couple of weeks (that's if your family doesn't find it in the fridge first!)

Thermocooker Method:

  1. Sprinkle the Hundreds and Thousands into the bottom of each mould (a pinch or two in each mould).
  2. Place the biscuits into the thermocooker and press turbo 2-3 times or until they resemble crunchy crumbs (set aside).
  3. Place the condensed milk and white chocolate melts the bowl and cook on Speed 3, 100 degrees for 12 minutes.
  4. Add the chocolate biscuit crumbs and mix on reverse speed 3 for 15 seconds.
  5. Pour the mixture into a heat proof jug or use the Thermocooker jug.
  6. Gently spoon or pour the mixture from the jug into each silicone mould. You will need to work a little quickly for this as the mixture will start to set once off the heat.
  7. Clean off the excess mixture around the moulds with a cloth.
  8. Put the silicone moulds into the fridge for approximately two hours to set.
  9. Once set you can gently pop out the fudge from the moulds and place them in an air tight container.  Keep them in the fridge until serving

 This fudge should last a couple of weeks (that's if your family doesn't find it in the fridge first!)Enjoy!Happy Easter from Gisella and her two munchkins xx
