I am always disappointed that funfetti has been slow coming to London. It’s coming, but it’s definitely being more slowly embraced. Funfetti will always remind me of my sister (as for years as children, if we were making a homemade cake, she’d always lobby for the rainbow sprinkle frosting rather than my choice of chocolate buttercream).
Most of the time, I love difficult, therapeutic baking. There’s something really lovely about measuring, chopping, mixing, which I find relaxes me – as PhD student with a part time job and LOTS of volunteer work (as well as health issues) – I need something that I can relax and use to self-soothe.
But then there are the days where I just need to whip something up quickly. Whether it’s to send to a friend, to satisfy Beardy Boyfriend’s craving for something sweet with a cup of tea or to cheer up my office mates, I treasure recipes which can be popped together at a minute’s notice.
White Chocolate Funfetti Fudge (adapted from CookiesandCups)
1 can of frosting
1 bag of white chocolate chips
Melt the white chocolate chips (I had no problem melting in the microwave, but of course, you could use a double boiler as well)
Mix in the can of frosting.
Spread into a baking pan covered by baking paper – use a small pan (I tend to go with an 8 inch by 8 inch square)
Let the fudge set in the fridge overnight. The next day, cut into small pieces. And impress people with the ease in which you threw together some fudge…
