Chocolate Fudge

No boiling required - this is such a quick and easy fudge to make, but it's very sweet - a little goes a long way!

Chocolate Fudge

Makes: 36 pieces
Takes: 10 mins preparation + refrigeration overnight

Photo to follow


4 oz (100g) plain chocolate
2 oz (50g) butter
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 lb (450g) icing sugar, sieved

  1. Break the chocolate into pieces and melt it with the butter over a pan of simmering water or in the microwave.
  2. Remove from the heat and stir in the milk and vanilla.
  3. Gradually beat in the icing sugar (the mixture gets very stiff towards the end, so expect your arm to ache a bit afterwards!)
  4. Press into a greased 7" square tin, levelling the surface.
  5. Refrigerate overnight then cut into 36 squares. Keep refrigerated.
Enjoy :-)

Try to share it with your family though.... ;-)
