Today is a very special day.
Yes, you get to stare and drool at at this yummy Strawberry Shortcake Fudge and wonder why I am so mean every day to torture you with delicious food.

But that isn’t what makes today special.  Today we are surprising one of our best blogging friend with a virtual baby shower.

Surprise MANDY!!!

We love you, and we are so excited to help you welcome your sweet bundle of joy into the world.  I wish we could all be there in person to give you hugs and yummy treats!

Mandy Baby Shower

I “met” Mandy about two years ago when I decided to start posting just recipes here on this blog.  I think I found her yummy food blog through a link party. She was always so sweet with her comments and made me want to keep coming back to her blog.  She also hosts a fun Tuesday link party where you can share your food posts.  Make sure you stop in and say hi to her and let her know I sent you.

I had so many ideas on what I should make for the shower today, but I finally decided on some fudge.  Because everyone loves a good fudge recipe…and because I bought most of the stuff a while ago.  Have you tried the Duncan Hines Frosting Creations yet?  They are perfect for mixing into melted chocolate and creating fun new flavors.  So far I have made this Mocha Mallow fudge with it and this Caramel Hot Chocolate fudge with it.

Today though, I wanted a fun girly treat.  This Strawberry Shortcake fudge turned out so pretty and pink.  The perfect treat to share at an all girls get together or an all girls virtual baby shower :-)

I love how easy this fudge is.  You start by melting down the chocolate chips with the butter and milk.  Then stir in your flavor and marshmallow cream.  That’s it!  Of course since it is Strawberry Shortcake Fudge, I had to include a shortbread crust…otherwise it is just plain strawberry fudge.  There is nothing wrong with that, but I wanted it to be a little bit fancier to share at the shower.  Give it a fun white chocolate drizzle and some pretty white sprinkles for an even fancier presentation.

Word of warning: Don’t let your plate of delicious pretty fudge sit on the counter if you have a dog that likes to steal food.  We came home Saturday night and found the empty plate on the floor.

 Congratulations Mandy!  I can’t wait to see pictures of your new boy or girl.
P.S.  If it’s a boy, don’t tell him I made him pink fudge :-)

      You are the sweetest Mandy, and I am so glad to be able to celebrate the birth of your new little with you! A package of all our goodies would have been a good idea huh? HUGS!!!!

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      It just had to have a crust! It definitely made it so much more shortcake like! I’m so glad you liked it ;-)

    Daggone Jocelyn! These are amazing. So creative using those Duncan Hones frosting packets!! That is just awesomeness right there. Even I think I can make these! So fun to celebrate this with Mandy!!

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      I can’t wait to see what fun fudge flavors you come up with!!! Fudge is the perfect way to get rid of those packets!!!

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      Thank you Miriam! Welcome to the fun and adventureous world of fudge…I can’t stop thinking of fun flavors!!!

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      You should definitely try some of the flavor packets. So many fun ways to add them to frosting or chocolate and change up easy treats!!

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      Thank you Stephanie!! You are the sweetest! I see this fudge happening for so many different showers in my future :-)

  2. Nancy says

    These are just beautiful! Makes it hard to stay on my diet. Think I will have to make some of these for your two nieces that are currently visiting us…. and maybe I’ll have to taste them.

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      Diet? What diet? LOL my diet is struggling these days…as are the jeans going up!!! Yes, make these for the girlies…they will love it. I think it might even be gluten free so Jessie can have some…well, other than the cookies I guess. But you could make it in two smaller pans.

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      It is awesome…I highly recommend adding the ingredients to your shopping list :-) I promise you won’t regret it!!!

  3. says

    I am so excited about this fudge for 2 reasons: 1. That it is this perfect girly pink! and 2. That is doesn’t have real strawberries. My husband has an allergy to strawberries, so I don’t necessary make a whole lot of strawberry recipes. But since this is just flavoring, he can totally partake in it! Thanks so much! And congrats to Mandy!!

      I am so glad you liked it. Yes, the Duncan Hines Frosting Creations are in the baking aisle with the canned frosting. Let me know how you like it!!!

  4. says

    Oh boy – these look wonderful (and I just happen to have marshmallow cream in my cupboard – it’s not common in Australia)… now all I have to do is see if I can find the flavouring too! :) I think they might just be perfect for someone’s birthday party! :)

  5. Mary Jessop says

    Hello, your Strawberry fudge looks absolutely wonderful, but I have never seen any Marshmallow cream for sale over here in the UK, or do you think that it could be called by another name over here???
    If anyone does know how I could get some I would be very grateful to here!!
    Thank you for sharing the recipe.

  6. kk says

    This fudge is also really good with the Bubble Gum or Cotton Candy flavors. I thought it would be something fun for kids to try

    • says

      You could use some strawberry jello powder in place of the packets. I would start with a few Tablespoons first and see how it tastes. I think the whole box of powder would be way too much, so please add a little at a time. The color using the jello powder will be a lot brighter too.
