Rajah Tiger Fudge
The only thing was I was looking forward to buying a ton of Disney Eats brand stuff but that didn’t happen. Not from lack of trying but from lack of products. I didn’t see one Disney Eats display anywhere. I saw a couple left over products but that’s it. My husband said maybe the product line isn’t doing very well. That makes me sad, I was so excited when they launched.
I did notice a ton of D-lish brand stuff though. I think Disney just starting thinking people didn’t want to actually make the food, they just wanted to Instagram it. That’s exactly what the D-lish brand is. Food items you can wear in front of the castle, hold up in front of the bakery and collect those Instagram likes.
To each is own but I just hope they don’t stop making the actual cookware. There are still plenty of people who want to create the dish and actually eat it. Disney invited me to food media events and I’ll show you. Was that a little too thirsty?
Do you think all those girls on Instagram in the tutus holding up the Minnie cupcake actually eat it? I know this lady does.
Talking about Instagram is actually a great way to lead into something super neat we are doing today. You guys know I love supporting the Disney community. I love promoting podcasts, blogs and collaborating with other great members of this community.
One day I was thinking about this Disney food niche. It struck me they don’t really work together on things very much. I know this Disney niche is small but that doesn’t mean we can’t. I see Disney Bounders doing meetups and roundups. I see the mom bloggers sharing tips together and I see the Disney Etsy community joining forces for contests. I just couldn’t see why the Disney Food people couldn’t do it too.
They say be the change you want to see. So I decided to organize it. I wasn’t sure how easy it would be to organize something. I’m not going to name names but like any community, there are some food bloggers out there who I knew are only in it to help themselves. I think that’s fine and that’s their choice. I like to think if you build up the group, the entire group does better. I’m not saying that to act more righteous. Everyone’s path is everyone’s path.
I figured before I start messaging people I need some sort of plan. I couldn’t just send messages saying “Do you want to do something for something?” That doesn’t exactly build confidence. I wanted something that everyone could participate in regardless if they were a blogger, vlogger, podcaster or social media person. Something everyone could do in their own way. I knew I wanted to center it around the new Aladdin movie and of course it had to be food related.
Aladdin themed recipes! That’s it! We’d do it on Instagram because everyone and their cat has Instagram these days, and we do a giveaway with it. Now that I had a plan, I needed some people to do it with me.
I thought the process was going to be hard so I started by messaging my friends in the community. They immediately loved the idea and came on board. I really wanted to include people I didn’t know too. I didn’t want this to be the “people Gen kick it with” thing. Even though after a phrase like that you know how hip I am. I wanted this to bring all types of people together. I set out messaging contacts, Disney foodies and friends of friends. With the exception of one girl who sent me a lecture about she only Instagrams for her own enjoyment and basically I’m not as pure hearted as she is, everyone was super excited!

Let’s make some Rajah’s Tiger Fudge Recipe
For our recipe we are making Rajah’s Tiger Fudge. I wanted to make something super simple today. Some times it’s not about the complicated desserts. Things don’t have to be fancy to be fun and creative.
I found this Tiger-Stripe Fudge recipe in “The Disney Princess Cookbook” written by the Disney book group. What I really like about this recipe is how cute the recipes are. You aren’t going to find super complicated Disney Park recipes, or huge main dishes. It’s just filled with fun for all ages. Not all Disney cookbooks are like that. I think they aim for them to be but that’s just an impossible goal. To make everyone happy, Disney has to make different books for different levels. This one sort of falls in the middle. It’s easy but it’s not for little kids to make alone. Do kids really make things on their own? Where are the parents? Disney parents wouldn’t do that. They want to make it with the children.
Let’s just get into it.
- ¼ cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 (11oz) bag white chocolate chips
- 1 (11oz) bag butterscotch chips
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 tsp half-and-half
- Heavily grease and line with parchment paper a 8-9inch square pan.
- In a small bowl, place the chocolate chips. Set the bowl aside.
- In a nonstick frying pan, combine the sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips. Heat over medium heat until the chips are melted.
- Turn the heat down to medium-low, add the butterscotch chips. Continuly stir until the chips are melted. Remove from the heat.
- Stir in the vanilla extract. Stir until it becomes smooth and glossy.
- Pour the mixture into the prepared pan.
- Microwave the chocolate chips you had previous place aside. Microeave for 30 seconds, stir, microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Continously alternating until the chips are melted.
- Drizzle the chocolate over the butterscotch.
- Use a knife to swirl the fudge. Do not mix, only crisscross.
- Place in the refrigerator for alteast 2 to 3 hours. Chill until its set.
- To remove from pan, left the parchment paper and peel away.
- Cut into 2-inch pieces.
Super simple right? I will let you know this is super soft fudge. A little softer than you will be expecting. I only say that to let you know to serve it a little cold. You don’t have to serve them frozen or anything, just a little chilly to keep them set.
