"Harry had torn open the parcel to find a thick, hand-knitted sweater in emerald green and a large box of homemade fudge"
The Christmas presents have arrived and that means there's more festive treats on the way - kicking things off is my magical take on homemade fudge!
This Homemade Fudge recipe is the perfect sweet to fill a craving, or to box up and gift to a friend. The fudge base is incredibly versatile so I've adapted it into four varieties inspired by the Hogwarts Houses!
Harry Potter Fudge Recipe Ingredients:
(makes 32 fudge pieces)
450g golden caster sugar
450ml double cream
1 tbsp liquid glucose
¼ tsp of each flavouring
fruit, nuts and sweets to decorate
Hogwarts House Homemade Fudge Recipe Method:
To create your homemade fudge base, place a heavy bottom saucepan on a medium heat and add in the sugar, cream, butter and liquid glucose. Stir through until the sugar is well combined and then bring to the boil.
Heat the fudge until it reaches the 'firm ball' stage at 120c and then flavour with salt before stirring through.
Split the mixture into four bowls and then add your red, blue, green and yellow food colouring into each.
You can also add in your optional flavourings here - I've gone for strawberry for Gryffindor, vanilla for Ravenclaw, almond for Slytherin and almond for Hufflepuff.
Pour the fudge into individual rectangle trays (or a single divided pan) and then use a spatula to level the top.
Sprinkle over any optional toppings - I've used cranberries and coconut for Gryffindor, apricots and white chocolate for Hufflepuff, sunflower seeds and nuts for Slytherin and currants and chocolate raisins for Hufflepuff. Press down so they stick to the surface and then chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
Remove from the pan (Wizard Tip! Lightly heat the sides with a blowtorch if they're stuck. Use a sharp, warmed knife to cut into individual cubes.
