Easy, Five Ingredients Bailey’s Strawberries & Cream Fudge!
I think most people will realise that this recipe was on its way… I honestly couldn’t resist! My Bailey’s Strawberries & Cream Cheesecake was an absolute hit, so I thought I’d plug another recipe using this gorgeous new Baileys whilst its still popular, and available! I’ve actually made several other things with it as well, but whether they’ll make it to this blog I’m unsure.
I’m always a little nervous when I love a product such as this one because when they put ‘Limited Edition’ on the bottle, that can either mean its actually going to be around for a few years, or its genuinely Limited Edition. Kinda scared this is actually Limited Edition… so i’ve bought another two bottles.
I already have my Baileys Fudge recipe that I posted around Christmas time, and that one can be made with either Milk, or Dark Chocolate, or both! However, I think this Strawberries & Cream version will be swallowed by the Milk or Dark Chocolate, so I went with White Chocolate. I wanted to be able to demonstrate the ‘Pink’ of it!
I ended up using Pink Food Colouring in this fudge because I really did want it to look like the drink, just like my Bailey’s Strawberries & Cream Cheesecake, but this is completely optional. I wouldn’t really recommend supermarket food colours because they’re far too liquidy, and far too cheap you could say… and can sometimes ruin a recipe.
As soon as I brought these little pieces of heaven out, they were vanishing. My taste testers (who are occasionally the baristas at my local starbucks, or even my boyfriend colleagues when he’s on shift) just LOVED it. Obviously, it is a sweet treat, but if you like Strawberry Milkshake… you’ll adore this fudge as well.
The Freeze Dried Strawberries that I use to decorate it, can be found in Waitrose, Sainbury’s, or Lakeland for example.. but if you can’t find it, don’t worry. It’s not an essential thing to use, it just makes them look pretty! You could easily use red or pink sprinkles for example, or shavings of chocolate! Decorate how you fancy, or just make the fudge and eat it all.
If you find your fudge is still a little too soft set, you can whack it back in the fridge, or even in the freezer to firm up. It is a type of fudge that does need to be kept in the fridge in general however, as its not a ‘normal fudge’ like my Easter Fudge for example that you boil to a certain degree, and that is what stabilises it.
If you want this fudge to be able to be kept out of the fridge, you will need to use another 200g of white chocolate, but some people will get funny about using so much in one recipe, so I thought I would mention that in this bit rather than down below!
I hope you love this recipe as much as I did, and my Taste Testers did! Enjoy! x
Bailey's Strawberries & Cream Fudge!
- 600 g White Chocolate
- 175 g Condensed Milk
- 100 ml Bailey's Strawberries & Cream
- Pink Food Colouring
- 14 g Freeze Dried Strawberries
- In a large bowl, add your white chocolate. Melt carefully either in the microwave, or over a pan of simmering water.
- Once melted, add in your Condensed Milk, Bailey's Strawberries & Cream, and Pink Food Colouring, and then whisk/mix together till smooth.
- Pour into an 8" Square Lined Tin, and sprinkle over the Freeze Dried Strawberries.
- Leave to set in the fridge for at least 5 hours, or until firm. If in doubt, leave over night, or freeze for a couple of hours!
- Once set, cut into your squares! If its still a little sticky, whack it back in the fridge until firm.
- This recipe needs the extra white chocolate as it tends to need a bit more in comparison to milk or dark chocolate.
- I would recommend using normal condensed milk, and not light.
- The extra addition of the Baileys Strawberries & Cream, also means you need a little bit more chocolate.
- The pink food colouring is optional, but the Bailey's won't colour it enough on its own.
- This recipe would work well with any of the baileys flavours!
- This will last in the fridge for up to two weeks easily!
- This fudge can be frozen.
