How to Make Fondant Snowflake Decorations

If you are going to make the snowflakes to decorate your fudge, on a work surface lightly dusted with icing sugar, roll out a small chunk of white ready fondant icing to approx 3mm thick. Then, using a plunge cutter, cut out around 25 snowflakes and place them onto a plate. Pop into the fridge to dry out for at least 3-4 hours or overnight.

Alternatively, to speed up the recipe even more, you can buy any festive sugar decorations you like from most supermarkets and use those instead.

If you are using a silicone baking pan, you don’t need to line it. If you are using a regular baking tin – lightly grease & line with baking paper. Set to one side until needed.

In a large microwavable bowl, break in the white chocolate (500g | 17.6 oz) then add the butter (55g | 1/4 Cup), condensed milk (1 x 397g | 14 oz Tin) & vanilla extract (1/2 tsp).

Next, heat in the microwave on full power for 30 seconds. Then give it a good stir and keep heating in 10 second intervals. Stir well after each time until it’s all melted and smooth.

If you don’t have a microwave, you can just as easily do it on the hob. Simply add all the same ingredients into a large saucepan and heat over a low heat. Stir constantly until it’s all melted and smooth.

Quickly add in your chopped pecans (70g | 1/2 Cup) & cranberries(60g | 1/2 Cup) and give it a really good stir to evenly distribute them.

Then pour it into your silicone/prepared tin and level out with a spatula. If you are using a silicone tin, I find it easiest to put a baking tray underneath so you can easily move it to the fridge when you’re finished.

How to Decorate White Chocolate Pecan Cranberry Fudge

Working quickly (as it will start to set) top with your chosen Christmas decorations. If you are using snowflakes like me, place them while being mindful of where you are going to slice later.

Gently press them into the top of the fudge then place into the fridge to set for 4 hours or overnight.

Once the fudge is firm, remove from the tin and slice into a 5 x 5 grid to make 25 pieces. Store in an airtight container in the fridge and consume within 7-10 days.
