Families are like Fudge… Mostly Sweet with Lots of Nuts! Here’s a fun, yummy gift idea that is easy to put together and will be well received by almost anyone!
Several years ago my best friend dragged me out shopping on Boxing Day and I found this adorable silicone mold on a clearance rack and I scooped it up as fast as I could. You don’t have to wait until after christmas, I’ve discovered this same mold is available here on Amazon.
Spray the mold with non-stick cooking spray (whatever brand you prefer, or use your Misto sprayer). Place it on a cooling rack for stability and to prevent your fudge or candy from having any cracks in it.
Cook the fudge according to the recipe directions, when the recipe is ready to be poured into a pan, pour it into the silicone mold.
The mold offers 6 wells, so you could make 6 different types of fudge- for example, make one batch of plain chocolate, pour it into the mold and then immediately add 1/3 cup chopped peppermint candy cane pieces to 1 well, 1/4 c. chopped walnuts to another well, 1/4 c. chopped almonds to another, you get the drift right?!
Let it set undisturbed for 2 hours on the cooling rack.
Place a sheet of foil or parchment paper over the top of the cooled fudge, then place a cookie sheet over the foil. Carefully and quickly invert the silicone pan, flipping
them over, slice between the bars and wrap them individually for gift giving.
This mold can be used for peppermint bark, a giant “needham”, a giant peanut butter cup, fudge, brittle and much more.
Wilton also makes a Christmas Stack and Melt candy bark mold as well, except that it’s a bit smaller.
