Rose Fudge and Black Forest Fudge – Happy Birthday to Me!

Rose Fudge Truffles and Black Forest Fudge

Recipes in this Post

It’s my birthday, and I can make anything I want to! It’s also Founder’s Night at my son Spane’s school, so I thought I should bring something to liven up the festivities. I got up early this morning and make two kinds of fudge, Rose Fudge and Black Forest Fudge. As of this writing, there are no pictures, but there will be as soon as it sets.

I love the flavor of roses, there is nothing like it. I have some rose syrup that I often put in lemonade, and love roses with peaches. What could be better in fudge?

One of my favorite cakes is a Sour Cherry Fudge cake, and I’m making that for my birthday cake (more later), so I decided to take that to the candy level as well.

Rose Fudge

Mis en Place for Rose Fudge

You can find rose syrup and rose preserve at Mediterranean or Armenian stores. Gel colorants are preferred to liquid food coloring because less is required and the colors are more true.

Ingredients

  • 1 12 oz bag white chocolate chips
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 bag miniature marshmallows
  • 1 tablespoon rose syrup
  • 2 teaspoons rose preserve
  • 1 drop rose colorant

Instructions

  1. Have ready a pan lined with wax or parchment paper.
  2. Over very low heat, melt the chocolate and condensed milk, rose syrup, rose preserve and colorants together, stirring all the while. It will be very pink
  3. Increase the heat to low. Add the marshmallows continue to stir until all the marshmallows have melted and there are no white streaks.
  4. Pour into the prepared pan and let cool for 3 hours, then refrigerate.

  5. Remove from the pan using the sides of the parchment paper. Peel the parchment paper from the fudge, and cut into squares.

Variations

When the fudge sets a little, take a knife and make swirls to represent roses on the top of the fudge.

If your fudge does not set completely in time, then you can roll balls in powdered sugar. Then you have Rose Fudge Truffles!

  2. Hi, niche blog themes, is it any suggestion to get free elegant theme for my new simple blog? thanks for reply

      Although this is really off topic here, I will say that I added a child theme to my existing theme so The Good Plate can “dress for the holiday”. Google is your friend, there are plenty of free themes available. WordPress itself has some nice themes.

    A nice individual twist on things. I guess having something authentic or substantial to talk about is the most important thing.
