Method - Drizzle

  1. Step 1

    In medium bowl, add 2 tsp of vegetable oil, 8 drops of Natural Green Food Colour and 3 drops of Natural Yellow Food colour. Use a fork to vigorously mix the colour into the oil. Melt white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in 30 second intervals until melted. Add oil mixture to melted chocolate and stir to combine. Drizzle over fudge and sprinkle with remaining crushed candy canes. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Slice into squares to serve.

Recipe Notes:
We used a 1200 watt microwave at full power. For a lower wattage microwave, additional time may be needed to set correctly.

This recipe use our Rainbow Natural Food Colours. If using our Green and Yellow Food Colour in the 50ml bottles, you will only require a few drops at a ratio of 3:1

Keep refrigerated before serving.

Stored in an airtight container, fudge will keep up to two weeks in the fridge and up to 3 months in the freezer.

Recipe Tips:
If you do not have food processor, Oreos can be crushed in a plastic bag with a rolling pin.

Fudge can also be made in a 16cm x 26cm brownie tin lined with baking paper.
