Ingredients

Strawberry fudge

  • 2 cups (250g) sugar
  • 1 cup (250ml) milk
  • ½ tsp (3ml) pink food colouring
  • ½ tsp (3ml) strawberry essence (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp (30ml) butter

Chocolate fudge

  • 2 cups (250g) sugar
  • 1 cup (250ml) milk
  • ½ cup (50g) cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp (30ml) butter

To assemble

  • 3 mmmMallows Vanilla Whippy bars
  • 1 packet shortbread biscuits, crushed
  • ¼ cup (60g) butter, melted

Method
  1. Line the base and sides of a loaf tin with baking paper.
  2. Place sugar, milk, food colouring and strawberry essence (if using) in a heavy-based saucepan.
  3. Stir over low heat until sugar has dissolved. Bring to a gentle simmer, and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until syrup is thick and creamy.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in butter.
  5. Pour mixture into a bowl and, using an electric mixer, beat until thickened and cooled – approximately 5 minutes.
  6. Pour into prepared tin and leave to set for 10-15 minutes.
  7. Repeat process for chocolate fudge, swapping food colouring for cocoa powder.
  8. Place Vanilla Whippy bars on top of set strawberry fudge layer, then pour over chocolate mixture. Set aside for 10 minutes to cool.
  9. Mix shortbread crumbs and melted butter together, then spread over fudge and flatten with offset spatula or back of a spoon.
  10. Leave to set for 45-60 minutes (but don’t refrigerate).
  11. Remove loaf from tin, slice and serve with dollops of cream and fresh strawberries.
