Always wanted to make fudge, but couldn’t find an easy enough recipe?
Well, you’re in luck!
Look no further... This recipe is SO simplistic, it’s four ingredients and only three steps!
This fudge is so tasty! I’ve made it loads and it comes out perfectly every time!
You’ll have loads of compliments from this recipe. It’s creamy, soft, chocolatey and downright delicious!! What more could you ask for?
This recipe will make 36 decent sized pieces.
- 400 grams Dark or Milk Chocolate (around 50 percent cocoa)
- 1 can of Condensed Milk
- 25 grams Butter
- 100 grams Icing Sugar
- 55 grams nuts
Alternatively, you can put whatever topping on you would like!
You will also need a 20 cm square tin, lined with baking parchment. Make sure you make the sides of the parchment long enough so that you can grab them to easily lift the fudge out of the tin once it is set.
- Break or chop up the chocolate into small pieces. Add the chocolate, butter, and condensed milk to a non-stick saucepan. Melt these three ingredients together gently over a low-medium heat. Make sure to stir occasionally, to ensure it doesn’t burn, until its smooth and silky.
- Remove from the heat. Add or sieve in the icing sugar in stages and mix thoroughly. You can you mix this with an electric whisk, as the mixture gets quite thick and difficult to mix after a while.
- Pour the fudge into the lined tin. Press and smooth the mixture into the tin with the back of a spoon. If you’re using them, press any toppings into the surface of the fudge. Once this is done, place the fudge in the fridge to chill for one hour. Then cut it into squares and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks.
Use 45-55 percent cocoa solids for best results.
When you add the icing sugar, add it in in stages and mix slowly to start with and gradually build up the speed. Unless you and your kitchen want to be completely covered in icing sugar!!
This fudge is perfect for snacks, desserts, and gifts for friends and family.
The other year, whilst I was still a poor university student, I didn’t know what to get some of my family for Christmas. Since I didn’t have very much money, it was also difficult to decide on what to buy them too. That’s when my mum suggested making something for people. After all, it’s the thought that counts!
So I decided to make this fudge.
I made two different kinds. I made plain chocolate and then I also made chocolate fudge that had crushed nuts pressed into the top. This added that extra bit of crunch, as well as a nice contrast to the smooth and melty fudge.
I decided to give everyone a mix of the two types in some clear airtight pots that I had gotten to put the fudge in. I had lined the inside of the pots with a clear cellophane wrap that had snowflakes on, to give it that extra Christmassy and special feel!
By the end, I was very proud of how it looked and everyone was very impressed with the decoration as well as the tastiness!
Alternatively, I would even say that this would be a perfect gift for Valentine's Day, as you could cut the fudge into hearts and you could have red sprinkles on the top!!
Now this recipe is a part of my regular things to make as a treat, or if we’re having guests over.
So get out there and impress some people. I just know you and everyone else will love it!
