Dawn Foods has turned two of the most iconic Christmas flavours – mint chocolate and chocolate orange - into limited edition ready-to-use fudge icings, perfect for creating retro-feel bakes this festive season.

Traditionally associated with confectionery, chocolate mint is a mainstream flavour in desserts and ice cream, and now moving into bakery too. Dawn Foods’ new Mint Chocolate Fudge Icing delivers a rich chocolate flavour with an aroma of mint, just like those famous after dinner treats.

Dawn’s Chocolate Orange Fudge Icing has all the more-ishness of its confectionery sibling with rich dark chocolate, contrasting with the sweet citrus notes of orange. It’s a classic long time consumer favourite flavour combination and is big news across many product launches this year according to Dawn.

Both the new fudge icings are easy to use – they simply need to be warmed through for mailability - then used to layer, drip, cover coat or drizzle a whole range of bakes. Bakers can create spectacular Instagram-worthy Christmas celebration cakes, chocolate mint filled donuts and traybakes or chocolate orange themed muffins, decorated with a segment of chocolate orange.

Made with natural colours and flavours we well as being vegan and vegetarian suitable, Dawn claims that the new fudge icings offer bakers a cost-effective way to introduce on-trend, retro Christmas flavours without having to buy in lots of additional ingredients. A plain muffin for example can be transformed into a limited-edition confectionery-topped Christmas treat at a premium price point. The new fudge icings are freeze/thaw stable too making them even more versatile.

Dawn Foods’ Limited Edition Mint Chocolate Fudge Icing and Limited Edition Chocolate Orange Fudge Icing are available in 10kg pails.
