Although it may be last few days of June – you still have time to celebrate pride month with this rainbow fudge.
Keeping things simple with a very easy 5 ingredient fudge, although out may be vanilla flavoured – this doesn’t make it boring, trust me on this one. It’s brightly coloured and will stand out a mile off, making it the perfect statement piece to make.
Just because I’m making it for pride month, doesn’t mean you have to. I made this in response to someone being heavily homophobic, so enjoy! You can always make it for themed parties or events – the choice is yours.

Anyway, let’s get started, shall we?
1kg white chocolate, roughly broken.
750ml condensed milk.
3 tsp vanilla extract.
Rainbow food colours (red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. Pastes are more concentrated but gels will work).
To get started, I recommend weighing up the ingredients – separating the white chocolate and condensed milk into 6 equal portions, using digital scales for accuracy. Into the condensed milk, you can add in the vanilla extract.
Before you get started on the recipe, don’t forget to prepare your baking tin. Take some tin foil and press it into place, brushing it all over with some flavourless oil – set aside until needed later on.
Place a small-medium saucepan on the hob over a medium-high heat, it should be at a gentle simmer. ensure the pan has been filled with enough water in, so it doesn’t boil dry nor touch the bottom of the bowl.
into a heatproof bowl, place in the white chocolate, condensed milk, vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. Give a brief mix together, then place over the heat and stir continuously until the chocolate has melted and everything has come together – this doesn’t take too long but keep your eye on it. It will go from the elements to a thick but spreadable consistency – this is what you’re looking for.
Remove from the heat, mixing well, then add in the food colouring of choice. I recommend starting with the purple, so the layers are accurate but you can do them in whichever order you’d like.
Into your prepared tin, add your first layer. I found it a little difficult to spread, due to adding a little too much oil. Once you have out spread out and as level as can be, you can place into the fridge and allow to chill for at least 30 minutes.
Repeat the process with the remaining layers. At first, you may think the layers are too thin and won’t show – don’t worry. They show well in the centre, if done properly. Once you get to the final layer, which should be red, I added a generous dashing of rainbow sprinkles on top, this was just to further add rainbow to the end result. I like to then leave it for at least 3 hours to chill in the fridge but overnight will be fine.
When you come to slicing everything up, take a knife and place in boiling water first, then wipe in-between use, placing back into the water to make it easier to slice up.
Enjoy as soon as possible but if stored in an airtight container, keep in the fridge and the fudge should last for about 1 month.
Anyway, thats how easy it is to make fudge and this rainbow fudge is even better! So, don’t forget to give it a try soon!
