I love baking Valentine treats! Adorable cupcakes, frosted sugar cookies, white chocolate dipped candies – you name it. But, that all takes a lot of time! Sometimes you need a homemade Valentine treat in a hurry and easy to make is essential! That’s where this Easy Strawberry Fudge recipe comes in.
We are sharing our recipe this Valentine season as part of the Good Cookie Food Bloggers Valentine’s Event to help make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer!
Did you know that cancer is the #1 cause of death of children by disease in the U.S.? There are 40,000 U.S. children actively battling cancer right now. With less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget going to all childhood cancer combined. That’s why it’s so important for us to get involved!
Help us make a difference by donating to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer! Our goal is to raise at least $3000. Because these three companies: Dixie Crystals, Mediavine and OXO have each pledged to match our donations raised through this campaign up to $3000!!!
Amazingly, our matching goal has already been reached, but you can still donate and help us make an even bigger difference!
Back to the Easy Strawberry Fudge Recipe! What makes this Valentine fudge recipe so easy?? It only takes two ingredients!! Well, technically there is a third ingredient if you plan to decorate the tops, like we did with red M&Ms candies. Otherwise, all it takes to make this yummy fudge is a bag of white chocolate chips and a container of strawberry frosting. If you prefer, you can substitute your own homemade frosting. That kind of defeats the whole “quick and easy” idea, but it does make it a more homemade treat.
One thing you’ll find helpful for making the fudge is a set of heart cookie cutters. You can cut the hearts by hand with a butter knife, but cookie cutters make it WAY easier and also makes it fun for kids to help. This nesting set of 5 heart cookie cutters is great for the job and gives options of varying sizes.
