Unicorn Fudge

My Best Homemade Fudge Recipe

This week, I made some bright and colorful white chocolate Unicorn Fudge that is guaranteed to brighten up anyone's day. If you haven't noticed, the Unicorn trend has taken the Instagram baking world by storm.

I can't say I am surprised. Unicorns are pretty cool. I should know because I have spent the better part of the last 26 years trying to become one. I'm not talking about the mythical horses with the horn in the middle of their head (although that would be awesome), I'm talking about what the idea of "being a Unicorn" represents in our culture.

Today, to be a Unicorn is to be something truly special. A beautiful and majestic creature that is unique in all the right ways. You know what I am talking about - the kind of person that can't help but stand out in a crowd. Someone that everyone looks at and just thinks "Wow. That person is AWESOME."

How To Bake Your Own Fudge

My whole life I have been working to be the best at everything I did. Things like better grades, higher test scores, more followers - whatever it was, I was always killing myself to be something more than I was. But after years of constantly beating myself up for not being better, I have learned that trying to be a Unicorn kind of sucks.

I will let you in on a little secret, no matter how amazing you are, there is always going to be someone who is smarter, faster, or just better than you are...damn unicorns. And no matter how good you get, those people will always be there to make you doubt yourself.

So in 2017, I have decided to give up on trying to be something that I am not. To stop comparing myself to others and to just live my life the best I can and be the best I can be. But don't worry. Just because I have given up on my dreams of becoming a Unicorn doesn't mean I am going to stop making Unicorn themed sweet treats. Enjoy the fudge!

Could this be made in candy molds?

How long, if giving as gift, can it be stored for please?

Great question! This fudge can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for abut a week. But, if you store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator, it can last 2 to 3 weeks.

Do you only place the parchment paper on the bottom of the pan? Do you place strips of parchment paper around the sides? Also, do you spray any non stick spray before piuring the fudge inti the pan? Thank you.

I used a large piece of parchment so it covered the bottoms and the sides. For this recipe, you do not need to spray the pan with non-stick spray.

Doesn't this fudge need some sugar?

No added sugar needed! You get plenty of sweetness from the heavy cream and white chocolate!
