Unicorns are all the rage at the moment, and I'm certainly not complaining - especially since things like chubby unicorn lights and cute unicorn phone charges exist - so when I saw a super cute unicorn fudge recipe by Sprinkles For Breakfast (AKA the best website name ever), I knew I had to try it out.
I chose this recipe because it seemed pretty simple, it looks absolutely amazing, and I had never tried making fudge before. It did turn out to be quite simple to make. The recipe only stated that a microwave was needed, not a stovetop or oven, so that was definitely right up my alley.
I followed the recipe pretty much to a tee, except that I used pink food dye instead of purple candy colouring (I'm not sure what the difference is), and I used white chocolate melts instead of chocolate chips, since they are specifically for melting purposes.
Despite my awesome recipe-following skills, the fudge never really set for me. It remained incredibly sticky and I was unable to cut it into slices, so I ended up having to eat it straight out of the pan! I didn't mind too much as it was still delicious (and incredibly sweet, too), but it did mean that I couldn't take nicer photos of it.
Someone left a comment on Sprinkles For Breakfast's original post saying that theirs never set either, so I felt better knowing others had the same problem as me. I actually ended up keeping it in the fridge for days and it still never completely set.
I'm sure if I did some research I could figure out why that happened, but I'll save that for the next time I want to try making fudge. I'm too preoccupied with choosing the next recipe I want to try to focus on the ones I already have! If this was something I was going to make often, I would make it again until I got it right, but this was so super sweet, I couldn't handle having it too often.
