A decadent treat, Salted chocolate and earl grey fudge.
I associate fudge with holidays, something you buy as a gift for others, or sometimes yourself if you come across a fudge shop full of wonderful flavours. There is a lovely fudge shop in Edinburgh but I never go in it really, it would just feel too indulgent. Its a treat and feels so special wrapped in parchment paper and packaged up in a brown paper bag.
I was recently sent some wonderful teas from Jing tea to try and the Earl Grey was one of the best I’ve had, its so fragrant from the bergamot and packed with cornflower. I knew I wanted to incorporate it into a special sweet treat one you could savour. Fudge seemed like the perfect vehicle, let it dissolve away on your tongue slowly, tasting all the different flavours. The chocolate is a perfect match and the sea salt, well I just love the addition. To be honest I put a little flaky sea salt on anything chocolatey I make these days. I decorated the fudge with some dried cornflowers and cut it into cubes. This fudge really would make a wonderful gift if you’ve got a birthday coming up or just feel like spoiling someone special.
I hope your all having a lovely week. Thanks for reading.
