Easy Chocolate Fudge

Easy Chocolate Fudge

I have dreams of opening a chocolaterie. This is a new dream, borne of reading ‘Chocolat’ too many times, and certainly not one that is likely to come to fruition any time soon, my chocolate-making skills being what they are. But the thought of being surrounded by the smell of melting chocolate all day, tying boxes of treats with luxurious ribbons and spreading joy with truffles and caramels is definitely a tempting one. To keep the dream alive, I bought the ‘Chocolat’ recipe book and satisfied my chocolate cravings by losing myself in its pages and then opting for the simplest recipe – Chocolate Fudge. I’ve made three batches so far, with different ratios of dark/milk chocolate, and each one has been devoured by colleagues, friends and, um, me within hours of opening the tin. It’s just irresistible. If you’re looking for an easy DIY present for Christmas, or just fancy putting a smile on someone’s face, make this fudge, and be sure to snaffle a few pieces before you give it away.

Ingredients
  1. 300g dark chocolate
  2. 100g milk chocolate
  3. 397g sweetened condensed milk
  4. 25g unsalted butter
  5. 100g icing sugar
  6. 40g cocoa powder
Instructions
  1. Line a square baking tin with baking paper and leave to one side.
  2. Place the chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and leave to melt, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat when fully melted.
  3. In a separate saucepan, gently heat the butter and condensed milk until the butter is melted and the mixture is warmed through.
  4. Mix together with the chocolate. Sift the icing sugar into the bowl and stir together until fully combined.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking tin and use a knife to smooth the top. Place in the fridge for at least an hour until set.
  6. Remove the fudge from the fridge and cut using a knife warmed under the hot tap for a minute (it helps cut through). Dust with cocoa powder and enjoy!
