Christmas is just around the corner, so why not take to the kitchen and try whipping up a delicious batch of our festive fudge? This simple chocolate fudge recipe is not only mouth-wateringly moreish, it’s also quick and easy to make!
We find this fudge is much nicer (and cheaper) than your traditional box of chocolates; it’s just perfect for having a handful after Christmas dinner whilst you slob out and watch the Queen’s speech on TV. Additionally, if you’re trying to do Christmas on a shoestring this year, why not pop some pieces of this festive fudge into a mason jar with a bow, and give them out as gifts to your friends and relatives?
It’s a gorgeous gift that really shows the thought that you’ve put into it!
- 1 can condensed milk (should be around 400g)
- 300g dark chocolate
- 150g milk chocolate (for a richer taste, add more dark chocolate instead)
- 100g chopped walnuts
- Mixing bowl
- Wooden spoon
- Shallow rectangular baking tin (ideally 20cm wide)
- Cling film
Break up the chocolate into squares, and pop into a mixing bowl. Heat over a pan of boiling water until the chocolate has completely melted.
Pour in the condensed milk, and continue to heat in the mixing bowl, stirring regularly until all the milk has been completely mixed in to the chocolate.
Spread the mixture into a shallow baking tin lined with cling film (this will make it easier to remove the fudge from your tin later on).
Press the walnuts into the top of your mixture firmly. Make sure they’re spread out fairly evenly across the top of your mixture.
Put the mixture in the fridge and chill for a minimum of two hours.
Carefully remove from the tin and take off the cling film. Cut into pieces around 2 x 2 cm.
