While I was playing with my Pumpkin Butterscotch Fudge pictures, I wanted to do more than just cut out squares. So, I got out my mini fall leaf cookie cutter and got busy!
These little leaves were a great find! I’ve used them before for other baked goods. It’s a fall decoration I use on pies and tarts to add a bit of pop. I also had some Wilton Fall Leaves sprinkle to add to my fudge to give some needed color.
I cut out the leaf shapes with the mini cutters and then melted some chocolate chips in a baggie in the microwave and drizzled it over the fudge. Then I added a few leaves to the wet chocolate and let them dry.
Since I am a cake popper at heart, I made some Fudge Pops. These were formed with the left over scraps from the leaves. I just gathered them up and formed a ball. The candy coating is red and brown that I marbled together. To see a video of my marble technique, click here.
Finally, with a few more fudge pieces, I made some Fudge Truffles. I used the same technique I did here and “tried” to be sophisticated with my designs of swirls and lines. I wan’t too happy with the results, I’ve done better…
The Pumpkin Butterscotch Fudge was already very sweet and the extra sweetness of the candy coating was a bit too much for my pallet. The leaves were the best with just the hint of chocolate without overpowering the taste buds with a sweet bomb!
