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!)

A great edible present idea
  • 350g Dark Chocolate
  • 397g Tin of Condensed Milk
  • 30g Butter
  • Pinch of Salt
Step 1: Line a 20cm square tin with baking paper.Step 2: Put all the ingredients in a heavy based saucepan, put on a low heat and stir until melted.Step 3: Pour this mixture into prepared tin and smooth the top with a spatula.Step 4: Refrigerate for a couple of hours before cutting into pieces. You can quite easily store the fudge in the freezer, just wrap it in foil or pop into clear bags and give to your favourite teacher. Best stored in the fridge if it is warm!

  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.

  2. This sounds yummy and looks so easy, will give it a go :-)

  3. Goodness it looks good! #tummyrumbles

  4. I cannot make fudge! But this looks easy - I'll give it a try - looks delish!!

  5. Such a delicious and thoughtful gift. It looks delicious and impressive yet it is so simple. I'll be making this sometime soon!

  6. I have such fond memories of making fudge when I was little. This looks delicious and a wonderful texture.

  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?

  8. WOW! That looks GREAT! So easy too, I may make this for a gift for my friend's birthday next week! Karen

  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.

  10. Heather - how about chopped up stem ginger pieces - might try that myself.

  11. oh my - look at that rich texture!

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.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Family Favourite Minced Beef Cobbler

An easy, filling and relatively frugal meal that the whole family will enjoy, even the fussiest of children. I love savoury cobblers, there's something very comforting about them, especially when you top the scones with plenty of cheddar cheese like I do in this recipe. This minced beef cobbler features heavily on our meal plans during the winter months and I like to serve it with seasonal veggies, or failing that some peas from the freezer (to be fair it's usually peas from freezer!!). My lot would quite happily gobble a bowl of this on it's own though. It's most definitely a keeper in this house!

TIPS FOR MAKING THE MINCED BEEF COBBLERUp the veggies by adding peppers, mushrooms and courgettes to the mince.Make a veggie version by omitting the bacon and using Quorn mince instead.Double the recipe if you're feeding a crowd.Add a tablespoon of caramelised onion chutney to the mince to give it an extra rich flavour.Serve with seasonal veggies (or peas from the freez…
