Why Chocolate Fudge?
It is chocolaty, fudgy and best of all so easy to make. I have been making this fudge since high school and have to be honest in saying that it defiantly helped win friends and even teachers. This fudge was always a must for sleep overs and exam time.
What I love about this recipe is that it is so easy to make, yet lets your imagination run wild with variety ideas. It is the perfect sweet snack to have for when friends come round, or any picnic affair.
Enjoy, but be warned friends may come knocking at your door in the middle of the night for another bite of this rich chocolaty and decadent goodness.
1 395g tin Nestle condensed milk
1 375g bag of chocolate button melts (dark or milk)
250g nuts (preferably soft such as pistachio, pecan or macadamia nuts)
10ml flavoured alcohol (such as Baileys, Cointreau or Frangelico)
In a bowl over simmering water (or in the microwave) melt the chocolate buttons and condensed milk and stir to combine. Add the nuts and alcohol and stir.
Line a square 15cm tin with baking paper and pour in the chocolate mixture. Spread out flat and tap out any air bubbles. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until it is set.
Remove from the tin and cut into bite size pieces.
Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
Serves 1-20 (depending on how greedy you are)
