Process Ingredients 1
  • Strawberry frosting: I recommend using a 16 oz container of your favorite brand. You can also make your own homemade strawberry frosting if you prefer.
  • White chocolate chips: Use good quality white chocolate chips for best results. They should melt easily and have a smooth texture.
  • Freeze-dried strawberries: These add a delicious crunch to the fudge and also give it a natural strawberry flavor. You can find them in most grocery stores’ dried fruit or snack section.
  • Sprinkles: Optional but highly recommended for some extra fun and color.

Equipment

  • Double boiler (or heat-safe bowl and medium saucepan)
  • Rubber spatula
  • Parchment paper
  • 8×8 inch baking pan
