Zebra fudge by guest blogger Sam

fudgeSam’s “Zebra Fudge”

If this project was rated 1-10, this would be a 4.  (1 would be extremely easy and 10 would be extremely hard.)  This is a good recipe for kids because you only use the microwave and measuring cups.

Here’s what I did:

We used dark chocolate and white chocolate, and we melted the chocolate with sweetened condensed milk.  We did that in the microwave.  After the chocolate was melted, we poured it into an 8×8 inch pan.  When the white and dark chocolate is in the pan, we put it in the refrigerator and let it cool for 2 hours.

I made this for my Valentine’s Day party in my 4th grade class.  I made this because it sounded very good and has two of my favorite chocolates.  I used candy hearts and decorated it by putting them on top of the fudge.  It was very easy and fun and I enjoyed it.  And I hope you do too.

Love, Sam

 

Recipe:  Sam’s Zebra Fudge

(from Family Fun magazine)

Dark Chocolate Layer:

1 1/4 c. semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 c. sweetened condensed milk

dash of salt

White Chocolate Layer:

1 1/4 c. white chocolate chips

1/2 c. sweetened condensed milk

Line an 8×8″ pan with foil; set aside.  In a medium-size, microwave-safe bowl, combine semisweet chocolate, sweetened condensed milk, and salt.  Microwave at 30 second intervals until chocolate is melted, about 1 minute, stirring at each interval.  When the mixture is smooth, spread into prepared pan.

In another microwave-safe bowl, combine white chocolate and sweetened condensed milk.  Repeat melting process, but check at 20 second intervals because white chocolate burns easily.  Spread white chocolate evenly over dark chocolate layer.

While fudge is warm, use a knife to gently score it into squares, then place candy heart in the middle of each square.  Chill in refrigerator for 2 hours.  Lift fudge out of pan using the foil.  Use a large knife to cut apart squares.  Store at room temperature or in refrigerator.

    Wow! Sam, these are just beautiful! Your mom told me they were the prettiest pictures on the blog and by golly she’s right. You certainly have mom’s knack for baking. I’m sure your friends will rate them a 10 1/2.
    I love you,

    This is absolutely gorgeous fudge! I’m going to have to take some lessons because I’ve only tried to make fudge once, and it came out a big soupy mess. I’ll definitely try this one!

    BTW Mom, I left you something on my blog :)
