How To Make rock fudge

  • 1

    If you want your stones to have different colors, then divide the mixture among four bowls. Leave one bowl alone. Add another 1/4 C Oreo cookie crumbs to one of the bowls. Add the cocoa powder to another bowl. Add one drop of red food coloring & some more crumbs to the last bowl. These are just suggestions; you could make your rocks any color you'd like. Press a piece of plastic wrap down onto the fudge in each bowl & allow it to sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes, until it is thick & no longer sticky.

    NOTE: White Confectionery Coating is also known as Candy Coating or Moulding Compound. Used as a dip for candies or for making molded candies & chocolates, confectionary coating is a mixture of sugar, milk powers, vegetable fat & flavorings, including cocoa. It comes in a variety of pastel colors. White confectionary coating can be tinted custom colors by using special candy food colors. Caution, do not use regular food colors as this will affect the consistency of the candy. Because it doesn't require tempering, candy coating is much easier for beginners to work with & still produces spectacular looking candies. You can get usually get confectionery coating at baking, candy, cake, party & craft supply stores. BEST PLACE TO GET THEM: Wilton -
