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!)

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

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

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

  6. 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?
