This week’s Critical Feast is inspired by a Scanlan Shorthalt’s “unusual scrying methods” in episode 17.
Dear lord help me I made little fudge poos. HA! As off putting as it may be to eat a tiny poo representation, these are really tasty treats. I made traditional fudge and shaped it in a less than traditional way. I added some blue decorating sugar and voila, you have tiny, shiny Scalan poos.
Until the next adventure, Bon Dungeon Eats!
Recipe: Magical Scrying Fudge Drops
- 1/2 a stick of unsalted butter
- 3 cups mini marshmallows
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 (12 oz.) bag semisweet chocolate chips
- Blue sanding sugar
Add your butter, sugar, heavy cream, salt, and marshmallows in a large saucepan. Stir continuously over medium heat until the marshmallows have melted and all ingredients are combined in a smooth semi liquid. Take the pan off the heat and immediately add in your vanilla and chocolate chips. Stir until the chocolate is melted and you are left with a fully combined smooth mixture.
Allow the mixture to cool for about 30 minutes. You want it is be somewhat firm before you pipe the shapes, so you can set the mixture in the fridge for 30 minutes if needed to firm it up. Check it often though because if the mixture is too firm, it will be difficult to pipe.
Add the cooled mixture to a piping bag with a large opening (or use a disposable bag and cut a larger hole in the corner). I used a piping bag with no tip to get the shape and size I wanted. Squeeze the mixture from the bag in a circular motion building up in conical shape. You can make these as tiny or large as you want. If you don’t like the shape, scrape the fudge back into the bag and try again.
Once you are happy with the shapes, sprinkle your blue sanding sugar over the little “drops” and transfer to the refrigerator to continue to firm up the shapes.
