Earlier this week we’ve had Unicorn Smoothie Bowls and Unicorn Pancakes. Both are excellent and colorful breakfasts and now we’re moving onto desserts and party recipes. Stay tuned as well for Unicorn Bark, because a girl can never have too much bark. I seriously tell myself that sometimes. Over here, Scarlet had an awesome birthday! In lieu of our usual giant, back-breaking party, she had a few friends over for pizza, Harry Potter jellybeans (GROSS), and a cool, wonderful cake.
She had started theater camp on her birthday and we didn’t want to give up any of that. Yesterday I picked her up from camp and we did a birthday tour where you get a free rose, a free pin, two free chocolates, and a free ice cream sundae.
Now here’s another Scarlet-inspired Unicorn Recipe. Unicorn Fudge! It’s so good! We love to watch the fudge makers (if that’s the term?) make fudge at Penney Patch Candies in Provincetown on Cape Cod. That’s one of our annual delights. In fact, we’ll be going there really soon. The smell of the fudge is intoxicating. We don’t have the fancy fudge equipment here.
What You Need:
6 oz white fondant
Cornstarch for rolling
2 cups white chocolate
2 cups milk chocolate
1 cup condensed milk
1 cup sprinkles of your choice
Yields: 10 to 12 squares of fudge
What You Do:
1 – Line a rectangular pan with wax paper and set aside. Also, line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside
2 – Start by rolling 12 fondant spheres, about ¼ of an inch in diameter. You can use your cornstarch on your fingers to avoid the fondant from getting stuck
3 – Then, roll each sphere into a long strip, about 1 ½ inch in length
4 – Slightly fold over your strip and start twisting – this will act as your unicorn horn
5 – Gently place each one on your lined baking sheet.
6 – In two separate microwave-safe bowls, microwave each chocolate in 30-second intervals until completely melted
7 – In a small saucepan, warm condensed milk over medium heat but do not allow to boil
8 – Add condensed milk into melted white chocolate and stir
9 – Pour into lined rectangular pan and tap to even it out
10 – Pour sprinkles on top of fudge, place fondant horns, and chill for approximately 3 hours. Cut into 3 inch squares
And there you have it. Unicorn Fudge! Colorful fudge. Party fudge. Whatever you want to call it, it’s super fun. And the unicorn horns are the cutest, right? Working with fondant is a lot easier than I ever thought, with such possibility.
