Chocolate Strawberry Fudge Deluxe Recipe
You won’t regret your decision to make this superb rendition of strawberry fudge. It makes a splendid dessert or even a tasty snack. Be sure to have some paper on hand if you serve it to guests, however. Everyone who tries it will ask you for the recipe!
Chocolate Strawberry Fudge Deluxe Ingredients
2 ounces of strawberry syrup (make your own!)
2 cups of sugar
1/2 cup of butter
4 ounces of milk
4 ounces of semisweet chocolate
Chocolate Strawberry Fudge Deluxe Recipe Directions
Butter a 9 x 9 baking pan.
In a large saucepan, combine the strawberry syrup, butter, milk, and sugar, and place it over low heat. Gently bring the mixture to a boil while stirring constantly. Using a candy thermometer for accuracy, continue to boil the contents in the saucepan until the temperature reaches 235 degrees Fahrenheit. When the temperature target is reached, remove the saucepan from the heat source and continue to stir until the bubbling stops. Beat the mixture rapidly with a large spoon while the mixture cools and thickens. Pour the cooled fudge into the prepared buttered baking pan.
Allow the strawberry fudge to cool completely. Then cut into small squares or shapes of your choosing. Place a toothpick through each cut piece.
Melt the semisweet chocolate. Hold the toothpick and dip the strawberry fudge into the chocolate to give it an even coating. Place each of the chocolate covered strawberry fudge morsels on a sheet of wax paper or cookie sheet and place them in the refrigerator to finish cooling and setting. Remove when ready to serve!
Additional Notes on this Strawberry Recipe
This chocolate-covered strawberry fudge recipe makes a great addition to any feast. Plus, just like most of the other Strawberry Recipes, this one can be easily modified. For varied tastes, try sprinkling peanut or almond pieces over the outside of the still-warm chocolate prior to cooling. Or, for extra zip, try rolling the freshly-dipped chocolate in a dish of brown sugar. Experiment and find what works well for you and your unique taste sensibilities! For those conscious about the amount of refined table sugar they consume, feel free to try organic evaporated cane juice crystals, turbinado, sucanat, honey crystals, or even stevia to give unique and varied accents to this quick strawberry recipe.
