(Inside: Dude. Sometimes, I’m incredibly ridiculous. Like so ridiculous that I make a Dairy-Free Unicorn Fudge just for myself and my littles.)
Ridiculouslity kind of runs in my family.
My mom used to make fun recipes with me as a kid and I feel like I should just top that with my littles. I mean, why not?
Take, for instance, my recipe for Totally Amazeballs Unicorn Ice Cream Sandwiches.
And so my kids ask for more? I give them more. More fun.
I’m ridiculous, after all. Heh. But this recipe for Unicorn Fudge, well, it takes the cake. Or the chocolate. Wait. What?
Anyway, ridiculosity aside, the secret to making such rich colors in FUDGE is white chocolate (which I totally found dairy-free here, which is WOOHOOO!) and loads of fun.
Frankly, you can’t do this with regular chocolate. Simply cannot be done.
Stick with white. Trust me.
And while this particular recipe for something that seems so “normal” takes a little bit of time to make, it’s so worth it.
I mean, look at the swirly-girly goodness seeping out all over the place with this.
Which means you just need to factor-in that it needs to set in the freezer for about an hour. Then you can move it to the fridge and it’ll keep for a few days (if it lasts that long through all the snack-times).
Besides using white chocolate, the rest of the ingredients are simple.
I highly suggest Americolor Food Gel as it makes the best and brightest colors. I used pink, yellow, turquoise, and purple.
