White Chocolate & Oreo Fudge

IMG_4951Happy, happy, happy Saturday!!! 🙂

Hope you’ve all had a good week? Mine has been pretty hectic but I decided to say ‘screw it!’ and last night we ordered pizza (lots of it) and ate some of the fudge that I had made a day or so earlier – the best kind of Friday nights.

Dave kissed me goodbye as he left for his second job (superstar DJ) and I settled down to watch Castle with George. Bliss.

This recipe was sent to me by the lovely Claire, a gorgeous gal that I went to school with  – she said it was a dead easy recipe and she wasn’t wrong! Thank you Claire 🙂

This fudge is a quick tray bake but without the baking (bonus!) – guaranteed to brighten your dull days and put a smile on your face 🙂 enjoy!

Ingredients:

550g Belgian White Chocolate
397g tin Condensed Sweetened Milk
1.5 packets of Oreo cookies
Pinch of salt

Recipe:

1. Prep your baking tray with grease proof paper (I used a rectangular 8 inch x 6 inch tray)

2. Break the white chocolate up in to squares

3. Cut the Oreo cookies in to halves and/or quarters

Tip: Try to make sure that you only use ‘chunks’ of Oreo cookie and don’t add in any crumbs – this will only make your fudge turn and unattractive grey colour and it will taste gritty.

4. In heavy saucepan and over a low heat, melt white chocolate squares, sweetened condensed milk and salt.

5. Remove mixture from the hob and stir in crushed cookies.

6. Spread evenly into your prepared tray

7. Chill for 2 hours or until firm.

8. Turn fudge onto cutting board; peel off paper and cut into squares

Tip: Store leftovers in the fridge, covered up.

Green & Black’s Chocolate Strawberries

An absolute treat that most definitely calls for luxury! I used the best strawberries I could possibly find (Marks & Spencer) and some very indulgent Green & Black’s Milk and White Chocolate! Mmmmmm…..! 🙂

These were a (very) quick treat to take around to Zoe’s for an impromptu BBQ (making the most of the sunshine in the UK) so I didn’t have time to properly temper the chocolate. Instead I went with the tried and tested method of melting the chocolate in a bowl over the hob!

1) It only takes a few moments but its dead easy, simply place the roughly chopped chocolate in a bowl. Half fill a saucepan with hot water, and put the bowl over it, making sure that the bowl does not touch the bottom of the saucepan.

2) Slowly heat the water, ensuring it does not boil. Stir regularly using a flexible spatula so that the chocolate melts smoothly. This way means that the chocolate is slightly thicker than it would be if you had tempered it but it’s still easy to work with! 🙂

3) Once the chocolate has melted, pour it in to a ramekin and grab your strawberries!

4) Dip your strawberries in to the melted chocolate and coat about half of the strawberry, place on to a sheet of baking paper to set and continue the same process with the rest of your strawberries.

5) Once you have finish place the baking tray with your strawberries on greaseproof paper in to the fridge to set for 30 minutes.

6) For the white chocolate decoration, simply follow the same melting directions and very carefully pour the melted white chocolate in to a piping bag (that is opened up over a tall glass) and leave for around 15 minutes for the chocolate the cool and slightly set.

7) Remove the strawberries from the fridge and decorate however you wish with the white chocolate before popping them back in to the fridge for another 20 minutes.

Enjoy with fizz!!!! Any excuse!
