My method for making these stars out of fudge is so easy that even kids can help. They’ll have fun smashing the fudge into the molds. Their little hands will make easy work of it.
I know many of you attend outdoor picnics on July 4th, and although these are made using white chocolate, you can serve them outside as long as you place them in a shady spot on the table.

or white confectionery coating
3 small mixing bowls
NOTE: If you overheat this creamy white fudge, it will become greasy as the cocoa butter may seep out of the chocolate. If that happens see how you can fix it, here.
Equally divide the white chocolate fudge into 3 bowls. Color one bowl red, one bowl blue, and leave one bowl white. Allow the fudge to sit at room temperature for 30-60 minutes to cool and thicken.
Divide the red fudge into 12 equal pieces. Roll into balls and press into the bottom of your silicone star molds.
Divide the white fudge into 12 equal pieces and press them on top of the red fudge in the molds. Repeat with the blue fudge. Allow fudge to sit at room temperature for 2 hours.
Pop fudge stars into the freezer for 15 minutes. Then remove and un-mold. Press on the back side of each star mold, pushing the fudge out onto your work surface. They are ready to serve.
Store your Red, White and Blue Fudge Stars in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
