Kirstie Allsopp’s Choc Fudge Recipe

Easy Chocolate Fudge

Makes: 60 pieces

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Chilling time: 1hour

Ingredients

400g (14oz) dark or milk chocolate

397g can Carnation Condensed Milk

25g (1oz) butter

100g (3½oz) icing sugar

55g (2oz) roasted chopped nuts (optional)

Method

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.

Tip

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!
