This was actually my first time making fudge. I got my idea from my video by a YouTuber who also made Rainbow Fudge, YoYoMax12. Her fudge came out much better than mine. I basically used half of each ingredient she used because I'm the only one in my house actually eating it, so 36 ounces of white chocolate is way, way too much. I used 15 ounces instead. White chocolate is very expensive. I know the world's chocolate supply will eventually dwindle due to global warming but white chocolate isn't made from the increasingly scarce ingredient that is known as cacao.
I didn't use orange because I couldn't find orange food dye. I mean I could've mixed red and yellow food dye together but I was too lazy.
If you want to replicate the 1978 LGBT rainbow flag, which had pink and turquoise in it, make a fudge layer for each of those colors. Did you know those colors were eventually removed from said flag because those dyes are hard to find when it comes to making flags?
Cooking vessels you will need:
5 medium bowls(or 8 if you want to make the fudge based off of the 1978 LGBT flag, which had the colors pink and turquoise on it; I only used 5 colors)
a loaf pan
a freezer and refrigerator
For the actual fudge, you will need:
15 ounces of baking white chocolate(it melts faster; don't use white chocolate chips because those don't melt at all), with 3 ounces used per color(so if you want 8 colors, you'll need 24 ounces)
1 1/4 cups of sweetened condensed milk, with 1/4 cup used per color(so if you want 8 colors, than you'll need 2 cups)
3/4 tsp vanilla extract, with 1/8 tsp used per color(so if you want 8 colors, you'll need 1 tsp.)(Note: You can use any flavor extract you want. Just don't flavor your fudge butter(using butter extract) because that's just gross)
Red, yellow, green, blue, and purple food dye(orange, pink, and turquoise food dye is optional)
1. Break 3 ounces of white chocolate into small pieces in a medium bowl.
2. Pour 1/4 cup of sweetened condensed milk over the white chocolate
3. Place bowl in microwave for 25 seconds.
4. Stir the melted chocolate and condensed milk so that you can't see any chocolate chunks remaining.
5. Put 1/8 tsp. vanilla extract in the white chocolate mixture. Stir to distribute the vanilla extract evenly among the melted mixture.
6. Use a couple of drops of purple food dye in the white chocolate mixture. Stir to distriubte the dye evenly among the melted mixture so you end up with one consistent purple color.
7. Place aluminum foil in a loaf pan.
8. Pour the purple mixture in the loaf pan.
9. Place in a freezer for 15 minutes to let it partially harden.
10. Repeat steps 1-9 for blue, turquoise(optional), green, yellow, orange(optional), red, and pink(optional). Let each top layer partially harden in the freezer for 15 minutes.
11. After the final layer has partially hardened in the freezer, place fudge in the refrigerator to set for at least 12 hours.
12. The fudge will be hard as a rock so you should thaw it out at room temperature for 2 hours after the fudge has set.
13. Bon appetit!
