Fudging it

Here's something I made to share on the "Get Funky and Craft" blog today.  It's a cute little a little "take-out" style treat box using some of the papers from the "Tues Me" section of the "Funky Daze" CD from Funky Hand

It's such a shame you can't share the contents.....but, tell you what, I'll add the recipe below and if you've got a slow cooker you can try it out

What a lot you get on this CD definitely worth it's price of a pretty meagre £3.99, but get it during April and you can have it.....for
 just £1....what a Bargain, eh?

Materials and Tools

Takeout box template (own), cut on Silhouette Cameo
hand-cut fishtail banner 
Tiny tag die (Crafters Companion)
Flower punch (Tonic)
Medium circle punch (Woodware)
Seam Binding for closure

Slow Cooker Chocolate Fudge Recipe
1 tin Condensed Milk
50g butter
400g chocolate chips or broken up chocolate - milk, white, plain or a mixture!

Switch the Slow Cooker to HIGH, put all the ingredients in
Leave the lid OFF
Cook for about 1 hour, stirring every 10 mins or so
 (I set 10min timers on my phone and got on with my ironing inbetween stirs!)

Line a baking tin (something like a swiss roll tin) with Baking parchment, at the end of the cooking time, spoon or pour the mixture into the prepared tin.  You can add extras (dried fruit, nuts, cranberries etc) at this time if you like
Leave to cool, then pop into the fridge overnight.
Turn out onto a board and cut into pieces 

I used oval doily die cuts cut from baking parchment to prettify the inside of my boxes and to separate the layers of fudge

Anyway, don't forget, this CD is on offer in the SHOP for just £1 at the moment so don't miss out! Here's a quick look at just some of the designs you'll get on it

Thanks for looking, let me know how you get on with the fudge recipe if you try it
