Today we want to share a recipe for these yummy rugby party chocolate fudge treats that we made recently. They would be perfect for a rugby league, rugby union or soccer party. They turned out really cool and tasted divine.
Fudge is ridiculously easy and quick to make so we set out to create a footy field with a dark chocolate ‘dirt’ layer topped with a green coloured layer for our grass. We added almond footballs and a corner post flag give it a cool footy feel.
Before we get to the recipe I have to give a shout out to my assistants/eaters Miss Ruby, Miss Atiria and Miss Elizabeth who helped me out along the way.
Ingredients and supplies
- 1 can condensed milk (395 grams)
- 2 cups dark chocolate melts
- 1 1/2 cups white chocolate melts
- green food coloring
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- 50 grams white chocolate melts
- white and dark chocolate melts
- Washi Tape – if you dont have washi tape you can use patterned paper and gluestick – We get our tape from Washi lane
- Use baking paper line a 20cm square baking pan, ensure the baking paper is overlapping the sides of the pan. Set aside.
- Over a low heat, melt 200 mls of the condensed milk in a heavy based pan together with the dark chocolate melts and 1 Tablespoon over. Stir to combine.
- Spread the combined mixture evenly into the lined pan and pop it in the fridge for 10 minutes to cool and firm up.
- Melt the remaining condensed milk in a pan with the white chocolate and butter over a low heat. Stir to combine
- Add a few drops of food coloring to colour the mixture and mix well with a wooden spoon. I used about 6 drops of colouring
- Spread the mixture evenly over the bottom layer.
- Refrigerate for at least a couple of hours.
- Cut in to 4cm squares and remove from the baking pan.
Now you have your fudge squares with a chocolate dirt layer and the top grass layer. You’ll need to decorate them and top them with a Tryline, corner flag and of course the football.
First you’ll create a try line by piping a thin line of white chocolate across the fudge square
- Place 30 grams of white chocolate melts in a small microwave safe bowl/dish. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Microwave for a further 15 seconds at a time stirring each time until chocolate has melted completely.
- pour chocolate into a small ziplock bag and snip of a tiny corner.
- Pipe the white chocolate along the top of each fudge square about a third of the way down.
- Set aside to cool
Chocolate covered almond footballs
Make little footballs by dipping almonds into melted white chocolate then piping on the stitching lines with melted dark chocolate.
- Melt about half a cup of white chocolate in a small microwave proof bowl, similar to the method above.
- Stab an almond with the tip of a toothpick and dip the almond into the melted chocolate. Cover it completely, pull it out, give it a swirl or two until excess chocolate drips off.
- Pop it onto sheet of baking paper then into the fridge for 10 minutes to set.
- Melt some dark chocolate and pour into a ziplock bag
- Snip off a tiny corner of the bag then carefully pipe the football lines onto the almond ball.
Corner post toothpick flags
Stick a corner flag into the fudge and you’re set. We made the flag toppers with washi tape and a toothpick. We put together a little picture tutorial to show you how to make your own corner post flags. If you don’t have any washi tape you can use any patterned paper and a glue stick.
There you have it. One super cool rugby party food idea.
Happy fudge making, we hope you love this recipe as much as we do 🙂
