This is so easy to make and tastes gorgeous – its a taste somewhere between fudge and ganache!!
Makes: 60 pieces
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Chilling time: 1hour
400g (14oz) dark or milk chocolate
397g can Carnation Condensed Milk
25g (1oz) butter
100g (3 ?oz) icing sugar
55g (2oz) roasted chopped nuts (optional)
1. Chop the chocolate into small chunks and place in a non-stick saucepan with the condensed milk and butter, heat very gently, stirring occasionally until melted and smooth. (Alternatively place these ingredients into a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 10-20 second bursts, stirring frequently until the mixture is silky smooth).
2. Beat the icing sugar into the mixture until combined thoroughly. Press the fudge into a 18cm (7in) square tin, smooth over the top and press the nuts into the surface, if using.
3. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour until set, cut into squares.
Try any nuts or dried fruit you like in this recipe – pecans, pistachios, walnuts, hazelnuts and almonds all work really well. Or you could try adding cranberries, blueberries or even mini marshmallows!
For Christmas fudge look out for glittery decorations – silver balls or even silver or gold leaf for a really special present.
