Quick Chocolate Fudge

Chocolate Fudge

The end of term is nearly upon us (eeek) so Lowen and I decided to spend yesterday evening making some chocolate fudge to give to her teachers as an end of term present.

Anyone and I mean absolutely anyone can make this - you really can't go wrong (I don't think!..). I bought some clear cellophane bags to pop the pieces of fudge into and then Lowen got creative with stickers! I'm sure her teachers will appreciate the effort (well, it doesn't exactly take much effort) and is much nicer and more personal than a box of shop bought chocolates or fudge. If you wanted to, you could add some chopped nuts into the mixture or even dried fruit - we kept it nice and simple though.

On a different but school related note, I had an email from Voucher Codes regarding some Marks and Spencer voucher codes and I noticed one for 20% off school wear (which expires today)......time to start thinking about the new school year already and not leave it until the last week in August to find PE shorts in a small enough size to fit around 5 year old's minuscule waist (currently wearing age 2-3!)

  1. I'm a huge fan of this fudge - it's worth noting though that it doesn't work with reduced fat condensed milk! For some reason that doesn't set.

  7. If I am completely honest, I have never liked fudge, even as a kid! Way too sickly for me...but considering how ridiculously easy it is to make, I may have to experiment with this recipe with some different flavours to warm up my sweet tooth. Any suggestions which a savoury fan like me could 'break in' to my palate?

  9. One can never go wrong with chocolate fudge. And it's a great cushy way to get our wee ones interested in baking and cooking. That looks yummy, by the way.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
