Easy Chocolate Fudge

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 (3½oz) 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.
