This is a great little recipe from my blog page. My kids love making these and sharing them with their friends.
450g Icing Sugar
2 Tablespoons Milk
100g Unsalted Butter
Half Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
I have great fun making this with my kids and they frequently take some to school for their friends to share.
First sift half of the icing sugar into a bowl and make a well in the centre.
Cut up the marshmallows into halves and melt them gently in a pan with the butter & milk.
Add a few drops of food colouring to the pan (I usually use red to create some nice pink fudge) and mix in well.
Pour the mixture into the well of icing sugar and mix.
Add the rest of the icing sugar bits at time mixing it in completely before adding more.
Once the mixture is very stiff leave it for 10 mins or so to cool.
When cool, flatten out a bit, wrap in clingfilm and put it in the fridge for upto 3 hours.
Roll out the fudge and use a tiny cookie cutter if you want to make some shapes, or just cut into squares.
Keep in an air-tight container in the fridge and they will usually last upto a week.
I made some halloween fudge by adding green food colouring and cutting out with halloween shape cutters.
These are very sweet so cut small or use very small cookie cutters.
