Last Christmas, a friend of mine sent me a big old package of fudge in the mail.  It was so delicious that I couldn’t wait to try my hand at making some fudge to give as gifts.  Since Valentine’s Day is approaching, I decided it was time to actually make my own fudge.  I wanted to give it a holiday twist and finally settled on white chocolate strawberry fudge.  I cannot wait to share the secret ingredient that really makes your mouth do a happy dance.  I was nervous that I’d make this fudge and not like it {as if that’s really very likely, we are talking white chocolate here}.  What I ended up with was so delicious and I cannot wait to share this fudge recipe with you guys.

My uncle was in the hospital recently having his ruptured appendix out.  He is still recovering and I know it’s taking a toll on them.  They are far away from the rest of the family right now and it was tough on all of us not being there with them.  I am so excited to send them a gift to cheer them up.  Plus, as usual, I am using a mason jar to gift wrap them.  It’s kind of my thing these days.

I am not stopping with just the fudge though.  Last year we sent them a heart button collage and this year we are also sending love this Valentine’s Day with the DOVE® Valentine’s Day tin and an American Greetings® Valentine’s Day greeting card.  I am hoping to get another project made for them for Valentine’s Day but since I can sometimes be a procrastinator, we will see if it really gets done in time to mail to them or not.  In the meantime, I have to keep John from eating all of the fudge.  Or me.  I might just eat it all.  Know why?  Because the surprise ingredient is so freaking delicious!

Alright – here we go.

INGREDIENTSWhite chocolate Strawberry fudge recipe for Valentine's Day

  • 2 Cans of sweetened condensed milk
  • Bag of white chocolate melting wafers or white chocolate chips
  • Container of strawberry frosting
  • 1 tsp + 1 tsp Vanilla extract {I wanted to use strawberry extract but I couldn’t find it locally}
  • M&M’s® Strawberry – you only need one, but go ahead and buy more because you’ll eat some just for fun.  Serious – YUM.  Besides, you can snag this coupon so why buy just one?  Save $1.00 on ANY TWO (2) M&M’s® Brand Chocolate Candies, 8oz or larger
  • Valentine’s sprinkles {optional}
  • Parchment paper

To begin with, line a pan with parchment paper.  I used a 13 x 9 pan with edges on it.  You can use a smaller pan for thicker fudge but since I’m layering mine, this worked perfectly.

Spread some M&M’s® Strawberry around on top of the parchment paper.

White Chocoalte Strawberry Fudge with M&M's® StrawberryIn a microwave safe bowl, mix  3 cups of white chocolate wafers or chips, can of sweetened condensed milk and Vanilla extract.  Begin with 1 minute and then stir.  Continue in 30-second increments until fully melted and smooth.  Pour over M&M”s® Strawberry on parchment paper.  Spread it around {it will melt some of the M&M”S® but that is alright}.

Now, you can use the same bowl unless you like to do dishes.  Repeat the melting process using the second can of sweetened condensed milk, 3 cups of white chocolate wafers, container of strawberry frosting and teaspoon of vanilla.  Pour this on top of the white chocolate mixture.  Add more M&M’s® Strawberry by sprinkling them around on top.  If you are feeling wild and crazy, go ahead and add some Valentine’s Day sprinkles to it before it hardens.

My aunt and uncle aren’t the only ones that I am gifting fudge to this year so I wanted to make a little something else.  I whipped up a batch of white chocolate Dove® cupcakes with strawberry frosting using some of the chocolates from the DOVE® Valentine’s Day tin since I bought two.    Yes, the melted DOVE® in the center of these was amazing.  We finished our gifts off with some American Greetings® Valentine’s Day greeting cards and our gifts were just about finished.  Now, to package up our fudge.  White Chocolate Dove® Recipe for Valentine's Day

I know there are tons of ways to store your goodies but when I’m gifting food, I want it to be pretty.  I used a few scraps of pink and white fabric and placed it between the lid and the ring of the canning jar.  I had some pink and white twine that I tied around the top of the jar and then taped on 3 different sized paper hearts {pick up the free printable hearts at the bottom of the page}.    Each jar only took a minute or two to make and they look super adorable.  I’m thinking that I should personalize the top of each jar with the name of who is receiving it, what do you think?

    • I Joyce! I hope your family loves it as much as ours does. I haven’t made pistachio fudge before but I would think you would be able to make it the same way, using pistachio pudding instead of the strawberry frosting. You could add some marshmallow cream with it if you wanted a more whipped fudge.
