A cookie crust and white chocolate drizzles makes this Strawberry Shortcake Fudge a fun no bake dessert for any party!
Today is a very special day.
Yes, you get to stare and drool at at this yummy 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.
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!
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.
