Summer Fun Recipe - Fairy Fudge

Ahhhhh! Summer!! My favorite season! Lots of time for relaxing, swimming, reading, biking and playing. Also, the kids and I are taking advantage of our free time to create, explore, discover and experiment. We tried a recipe in my daughter's Usborne Fairy Cooking book this week:

PRETTY FAIRY FUDGE
They both loved it - tastes like frosting! :-) Since this recipe is already readily available online, I'll post our version but it is ©Rebecca Gilpin and Catherine Atkinson. The book is really cute and from Scholastic, so support your school when it's back in session or your local Usborne rep and check out this neat kids' cookbook!

Ingredients:
• 16 oz. powdered sugar
• 4 oz. large marshmallows
• 2 tablespoons milk
• 1/2 cup unsalted butter
• 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
• food colouring
• small cutters
• small sweets for decorating

Instructions:
1. Sift sugar through a sieve into a large bowl. Make a small hollow in the middle of the sugar with a spoon.
2. Using clean scissors, cut the marshmallows in half and put them in a small pan. Add the milk, butter and vanilla
3. Gently heat the pan. Stir the mixture with a wooden spoon until everything has just melted.
4. Pour the mixture into  the hollow of the sugar. Mix everything together until it is smooth, then mix in a drop of food colouring

5. Leave the mixture to cool for 10 minutes, then make it into a flattened round shape. Then, wrap it in plastic food wrap
6. Put the fudge mixture in a fridge for three hours to go firm. Then, sprinkle a little powdered sugar on a clean work surface.
7. Roll out the fudge with a rolling pin until it is about 1/4 inch thick. Then, use the cutters to cut out lots of shapes
8. Squeeze the scraps into a ball, then roll out the ball and cut out more shapes. Then, decorate each shape with a sweet
Store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to one week.

I had a copy of this cookbook and could no longer find it immediately when I actually really wanted to make this fudge. Thanks for posting it!
