Quick Chocolate Fudge

20 December 2013

There's not been a whole lot of blogging going on recently has there? Like everyone else at this time of year, I've just been incredibly busy. I've had two Christmas parties with work, been to Oliver's school nativity and carol concert, Lydia's playgroup concert, the toddler group Christmas party, taken them both to see Father Christmas, wrapped all the presents, delivered cards and gifts, and done lots and lots and lots of baking! Plus Lydia's birthday was last week so there was her party to organise and cake to make! There have been a couple of moments of stress but overall December has been great. I think it's safe to say I'm finally ready for Christmas.

Oliver finishes school today for the holidays and I thought it would be nice to give a little gift to his teacher and teaching assistant. I was going to just get them a box of chocolates each but then I saw this recipe for Chocolate Fudge and thought that not only would it be much cheaper {always looking for ways to save the pennies!} but homemade gifts are so much more personal and thoughtful. I wrapped the fudge in baking paper, covered with festive tissue paper, tied with a ribbon and a homemade gift tag... they looked lovely.

This really is the quickest, easiest, no-bake recipe ever. Anyone - and I really mean anyone - could make it! And it's absolutely yummy. This is definitely going to be top of my list of quick edible gifts!

Quick Chocolate Fudge

Makes 50
Preparation time 10 minutes

397g tin condensed milk
350g plain chocolate
30g butter
Pinch of salt

Pop everything in a medium sized pan. Melt gently over a very low heat stirring occasionally until the mixture is smooth and glossy.

Pour into a 20cm square baking tin lined with baking paper. Level the top with a spatula and pop in the fridge for a couple of hours to set.

Cut into squares. This should keep fine for a couple of weeks in an airtight container in the fridge.
