Fabulous five-minute white chocolate rocky road fudge stars

Yes, the title of this blog-post is a mouthful, and so is the content.

As part of Center Parcs' quest to find a new family blogger, they have challenged hopeful participants to get creative in the kitchen and come up with a sweet treat with a twist.

I couldn't resist the opportunity to have a play with some of my favourite fudge!

For a couple of years now, I have been making this Fabulous five-minute fudge. 

It really is so very simple to make and it tastes wonderful - rich and gooey and chocolatey.

I have made it for Christmas gifts and for party favours and for the children.

It always gets me huge compliments, which is never a bad thing for five minutes' work!

This time, however, I made it with a few twists.

I substituted milk chocolate for white and replaced the chopped walnuts with mini marshmallows, rice crispies, milk chocolate drops (Jasmine's idea) and crushed pecans. 

Finally, instead of the traditional presentation, I used cookie cutters to transform the fudge into little stars.

To make my fabulous five-minute white chocolate rocky road fudge stars (I really should think of a better name!), you will need the following:-

2 cups white chocolate
2/3 cup condensed milk
1 tbsp water
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup mini marshmallows
1/2 cup milk chocolate drops
1/3 cup crushed pecans
1/4 cup milk chocolate drops

Simply add the chocolate, condensed milk and water to a microwave-proof bowl and heat on full power for one minute. 

Stir, then add the remaining ingredients. 

Finally, pour the mixture into a lined baking tray and chill for 30 minutes before cutting out the star shapes.

It really is that easy!

The mixture made 10 stars - we then rolled out the remainder and cut it into chunks.  Jasmine commented how much the fudge looked like "ones we see in the shops"; this is due to the milk chocolate chips slightly colouring the white.  However, it very much still tastes of white chocolate.

We had fun making these; we hope that you do too.
