Sweet Treat... Fruit & Nut Fudge


There are many recipes out there for fudge, I found another only recently! Over time I've begged, stolen and borrowed snippets from them all to make what I like, so to share with you my preferred recipe, thank you to everyone before me for your help and inspiration...

Equipment:

  • Tin Opener
  • Microwaveable jug or bowl (2 pint)
  • Silicone or loose bottomed square tin (6")
  • Microwave
  • Spatula

Ingredients:

  • 1 x 405g tin of Light Condensed Milk (ordinary works fine - I just prefer this one and on the whole seem to get better results)
  • 100g Dark Chocolate (I've also used choc drops, buttons and white choc with equal success)
  • 2 Tablespoons of Spreadable Butter Alternative or Real Butter (Gasp! real butter?? oh yes and it tastes good)
  • Extra fudge flavours:
  • Chopped Nuts, about half a handful (sorry never measured this out properly)
  • Dried Fruit, a handful (ditto)

Method:

  • Break up the chocolate if not using chips etc
  • Line your tin or if silicone no need to do anything
  • Put the broken chocolate, condensed milk and spread/butter into your microwaveable bowl, stir to ensure choc is covered by milk (this helps prevent it from burning) - nuke it on high or at least 800w for 4 minutes in the microwave (if choc not melted only do 30sec boosts from here on in - a good stir will normally do it though)
  • Tip in the extras, stir to combine
  • Pour into your prepped container
  • Leave in fridge to cool - preferably overnight
  • Cut and eat (probably best not to eat all in one sitting, imagine the sugar high - also it's nice to share).
Enjoy x
