Easy Chocolate Fudge Recipe
Grease and line with non-stick baking paper either a 20cm x 20cm (8” x 8”) cake pan or a 25cm x 10cm (10” x 4”) bar tin.
Make sure you take the paper up above the top of the bar tin – this will help you pull it out of the bar tin when the chocolate fudge has set.
500g milk chocolate or dark chocolate, chopped
1 can of condensed milk – approximately 400g
30g unsalted butter, chopped
- Place all the ingredients in a medium sized microwave safe bowl.
- Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Remove and stir well.
- Return and microwave for 30 seconds. Remove and stir well.
- Return and microwave for 30 seconds. Remove and stir well until completely blended.
- This is the point at which you add any nuts or flavourings. Keep reading for suggestions.
- Quickly transfer the chocolate fudge to your cake pan that has been lined with baking paper. Press down to give a level top.
- Set in the fridge for two hours.
- Remove and slice as you like. The fudge does need to be kept in cool conditions.
Using the Recipe
If you want to make fudge with nuts then all you need to do is stir through 1 cup of chopped nuts just before pressing into the cake pan. You can also press extra chopped nuts into the top of the fudge before placing into the fridge – this looks great and lets everyone instantly know what type of chocolate fudge they are about to enjoy.
In the photos you can see milk chocolate fudge with walnuts and dark chocolate fudge with macadamias. You can use what ever nuts are your favourite.
Other ideas include adding peppermint oil to a dark chocolate fudge recipe. Start with 1-2 teaspoons and stir through. The quickest way to discover other fudge flavours is to head to my chocolate truffle flavours page. Here I show you ideas for chilli, orange, fig, cherry, hazelnut and many, many more. All these ideas can be applied to this chocolate fudge recipe.
If you make the fudge in the 20cm x 20cm cake pan this makes the perfect thickness for cutting out shapes. You could press out chocolate fudge hearts for your valentine and you then get to eat all the left-over bits!
