Another idea for Wombat Day is to make Wombat Fudge. The most difficult part of making Wombat Fudge is finding a wombat that will make it for you! If you can't find any willing wombat chef, then you'll have to find a recipe for fudge yourself. Any fudge recipe will do, but it's best if you make your fudge in a rectangular pan instead of a square one due to the shape of the average wombat.
How to Make Wombat Fudge
- Make your fudge following your recipe's instructions. You may add nuts or anything else you want.
- Let the fudge set before moving on to the next step. Often this is done in the fridge, but cold fudge is somewhat brittle when cutting it, so it's best that the fudge isn't too cold. Room temperature fudge is probably best.
- Download and print out the Wombat Fudge Pattern. Depending on the size of your pan, you may have to increase or decrease the size of the pattern to fit your pan size.
- Remove the fudge from its pan, and place it upside down on a cutting board or other suitable surface. You want the smoothest side of the fudge facing up.
- Cut out the wombat pattern from the paper and set it on top of your fudge.
- Carefully cut the fudge along the edge of the pattern. Remove the extra pieces and eat them before anyone notices. That's your reward for making the fudge.
- Add an eye and mouth if you wish to finish off your masterpiece. You could use candies, nuts, or icing. You could also decorate your Wombat Fudge with sprinkles or anything else you can think of. The finished version of our Wombat Fudge is shown at the top of this page with half an almond for an eye (with a fudge pupil) and a sliver of an almond for a mouth.
- You may wish to show off your wonderful Wombat Fudge creation before cutting him into individual pieces because he won't look much like a wombat afterwards.
- Eat and enjoy, and have a happy Wombat Day!
- You may also want to make a Wombat Cake or Wombat Brownies to compliment your Wombat Fudge.
