Everyone can use some little tips, even for the simplest recipes like this one! Here are some tips when you’re making this white chocolate Valentine fudge.
Set the right power on your microwave
Make sure you set your microwave to a power that won’t scorch the fudge mixtures, and pay close attention to your fudge when it’s in the microwave.
Use room temperature ingredients
You can make it a little easier to melt and mix together by using room temperature ingredients.
Cool the pan beforehand
This may or may not make a significant difference in the long run but if you want to try and speed up the setting and cooling process, you can put the pan and parchment paper into the fridge or freezer before laying the fudge mixture down.
