Chocolate Fudge


This fudge is quick and easy to make and is a good way of using up any dried fruit and nuts drifting about your cupboards. I used the end of a packet of pecans and a few pistachios last time I made it. You could of course use dried mixed fruit, raisins, cranberries, stem ginger or walnuts, which would all be very nice additions. This makes 16 generous sized pieces.

400g dark or milk chocolate

1 tin of condensed milk

200g icing sugar

100g chopped nuts or dried fruit

  1. Melt the chocolate and condensed milk in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Remove the bowl from the heat and sift in the icing sugar before adding the chopped nuts and fruit. Stir thoroughly.
  2. Line a greased tray or tin with baking paper (I used a square one that is 7-8 inches) and scrape the mixture into it. Use a spatula to smooth the surface. Leave to cool for two hours and cut into squares. You can dust them with icing sugar if you’d like an extra sugar hit.
