USING FUDGE LEFTOVERS
How can I use my Leftover Fudge?
I know, it sounds crazy that anyone would even have fudge leftover, but every now and then it can happen. Here we will give you great ideas on how you can use your fudge with other dishes or dessert to create new and exciting fudge recipes.
S'mores are a delicious way to use leftover fudge. A S'more is a traditional dessert that includes graham crackers, marshmallows, and Hershey's chocolate bars.
Using fudge to make this dessert can be done in a number of different ways. Many people like to top their fudge with marshmallows dipped in chocolate.
Chocolate Fudge could also be substituted for a chocolate bar. Stack two Graham crackers with fudge and top them with marshmallows.
It isn’t possible to heat things up over an open fire, though. If you would like to warm the fudge and marshmallows in the microwave you can do that as well.
Fudge Ice Cream Topping
Fudge is a perfect Ice Cream Topping. Its so simple too, just cut up small squares of your fudge and sprinkle them all over your bowl of favorite Ice Cream.
Fudge is an excellent accent to just about any flavor of ice cream. Different Flavors of Fudge go well with different flavors of Ice Cream, for example, Chocolate Mint Fudge would go great with some Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. No more boring vanilla ice cream, make it an amazing vanilla fudge ice cream that you won't forget.
You can truly get fancy by adding other topping with the fudge. try combining whipped cream, sprinkles, or nuts to your fudge ice cream for an even more exciting treat.
When making muffins why not through in some fudge chunks into the mix. This will create a fudge combination that you might just make a tradition. Find a recipe for chocolate Chip Muffins and then replace the chips for small chance of fudge. I recommend our Milk Chocolate Fudge for these.
These turn out so good that you will have family asking you to make the Fudge Muffins again. The fudge doesn't stay together like a chocolate chip does which melts into a a burst of fudge greatness. Try different muffin recipes with different fudge flavors, you never know what you might come up with.
Fudge Hot Chocolate
This has to be one of the BEST ways to use your left over Fudge. Hot Chocolate Fudge, it is too easy too. Cut yourself a huge chunk of your favorite fudge, place it in the bottom of a cup. Heat up about1-1/3 Cups of Milk on the stove or in the microwave. Pour that hot milk into your mug and top with some marshmallows or any other hot cocoa accoutrement of your choice. So easy and yet so delicious!
Nobody says it has to be a Hot "Chocolate", maybe there is such a thing as Hot Pineapple Rum Fudge.
If you use two squares of fudge, who is gonna judge you? NOBODY!
Do you know what is almost as good as fudge? Brownies! Want to know how to make brownies better than fudge? Add FUDGE!! Find your favorite Brownie recipe or boxed brownies and enhance it by dropping a collection of fudge chunks all over it.
A Chocolate Brownie with Peanut Butter Fudge Squares would probably be a sin, but who are we to tell you how to act?
Your brownies will have the kids from blocks over showing up at your doorstep. Grab yourself a huge glass of Milk and go to town on the whole tray. It really doesn't get too much better than this.
There are some people who might say no to cookies. But they will certainly say yes to Fudge Cookies. Same as the Brownies, you can find your favorite cookie recipe and add small cubes of fudge to the mix and your cookies will be on another level once they come out of the oven.
The combinations are endless. but we like to use Chocolate Walnut Fudge with our Leftover Fudge Cookies, because it adds the element of the Walnuts as well. The more the merrier when it comes to cookies.
This sounds so silly, but believe us when we tell you this might just be a regular dessert in your home. It its so simple to make this Fudge Wontons, just a few easy steps.
Place a small square of your favorite leftover fudge (We like using Chocolate Cheesecake Fudge) in the middle of a Wonton Wrap. Wet the edges of the wrapper with water and fold and pinch with your fingers to seal the fudge inside.
Preheat about 1/4" of oil in a Large skillet to about 350°. Fry the Fudge Wontons for a few minutes on each side until they are a nice golden brown. (Working in small batches helps) Place your fried Fudge Wontons on to a paper-towel on a plate to drain off excess oil. Let them cool down and then sprinkle powdered sugar and serve.
One of the most obvious choices to use your leftover fudge would be a Fudge Cake. That's right, you can melt down your fudge and use it for filling inside of your favorite cake recipe. Fudge filling can take your birthday cake to a new level of goodness.
The best way to melt your fudge is to use the lowest setting of your microwave and take your time. let it melt very slowly. Be sure to break up your leftover fudge into very small pieces. Microwave for about 30 seconds then let it sit in the microwave for about 3 minutes before stirring. Repeat process until you get the desired consistency.
