stars and stripes flag fudge

ok i gotta hurry.
my hubby tells me 2 days-yes 2 DAYS-
ahead of time that we are going on vacation.

and this is gonna be an epic vacation 
so i gotta get everything ready like yesterday.

but "wait!" i thought.
"i gotta make something for the blog!
 it's gonna be july 4th any minute and i gotta 
think think think about making something 
red white and blue!"

of course these thoughts are only in my head 
cuz i have no time to make something for this blog 
if you asked my spontaneous hubby, 
but i did anyway.

so introducing, 
flag fudge.
with stars and stripes.
that you can make lickety split as i prove to you 
while i am using my other arms to pack, 
do multiple loads of laundry, send off bills, 
vaccuum, clean out the fridge, mow the lawn, 
notify family and close friends, etc etc... get the picture...

just use this easy recipe 
and you're on your way to making goodies 
everyone will love especially uncle sam.
yup, you just need butter, white chocolate chips and condensed milk.
i cut the recipe in half cuz 
i just wanted to make a small batch.

just nuke all 3 ingredients, 
color about 1/4 red and 1/8 blue and 
leave the rest the off whitish color.
place the red and blue in a piping bag then:
keep layering, alternating the white and red colors 
for the stripes, then pipe a blue star on top
just use the white color and top with piped red stripes and a blue square for the flag.
place in fridge til firm then,

there's only 8 pieces shown cuz uh...
i had to sample one...

ok so there ya go,
fun festive fudge for the fourth.

now go forth and fudge out!



  1. This fudge is epic, I'm sure I would fudge out if I made it!! Safe travels and Have a Happy Fourth!

    1. gosh thanks Kim! sure would like to have a piece of that fudge that you make because i'm sure i would fudge out from it too! :)

  2. This fudge is fantastic, but I'm curious as to how you got the fudge out of the metal pan so neatly. Did they just pop right out?

    1. thank you Beth! the Pam really made it very easy to get out of the pan-i just had to use a knife on the corner to help ease it out but i think if you use a silicone ice cube mold that would be a lot cleaner and easier!... holy cow i can't believe i'm telling you how to do stuff with food LOL :>O

    1. 1st thank you Karen! 2nd and 3rd i guess i work well under pressure?!?! :>O and 4th you are so clever! happy 4th to you too :)!

  6. This is so cute!!!! If I can get to the store today I am so doing this with the kids.

    1. HOORAY!!! i hope you get to the store! it's only 3 ingredients with food coloring and to make it takes 20 minutes or so plus chill time-so you'll be on time for fireworks :>D!

    1. thanks Edye! they are yummy indeed! and for some reason eating a mini flag makes it even better :)

  8. I know pretty much your feeling, there is all those necessary things to do and then just couple more things you would like to do but no one else understands why you should bother? :D These turned out just great, didn't they? With the red, white and blue, you did great. I have been seeing lots of those lately and these are one of my favourites this far. I'm just wondering one thing, what would you have done if you had the time? ;)

    1. wow what a nice comment Upcyclelina! :)! how true you are-my hubby always says "just throw a few things in the bag and you're good to go!" oh how i wish that were true! lol that's a very good question-if i did have more time i probably woulda made 2 more red white and blue treats along with a few crafts too. i can't help it, i'm a true holiday head! :)

  9. These turned out so cute! I love this idea!
