Mix the letters up to send a secret (and yummy message).
Fudge is so easy to make and I love to do little packages for my friends and family spelling out a secret message or word – a private joke or love message.
So here’s how…
1 edible food pen
450g Demerara sugar
Greaseproof paper, non stick pan and a shallow dish1. Line a sandwich box or tin with greaseproof paper.
2. Fill a glass measuring jug with cold water and place in the fridge.
3. Throw everything in together and heat up, nice and slowly so it doesn’t burn. Make sure you stir the whole time or, non-stick pan or not, it’s going to burn!
3. It should be done in 10-15 minutes but the best way to find out is to grab your jug of cold water from the fridge, drop a spot of mixture into the jug and see if it turns into instantly to fudge. Whatever the outcome of your first try don’t be tempted to cook it for too long because the fudge will dry out very quickly.
4. Once it is cool you can cut into slices and use your edible pen to add a cryptic message before bagging it and giving it to your loved one. Ta-da!
