Fudge is one of my all time favourite chocolate treats - I love it! But I didn't realise how easy chocolate fudge could be to make at home until I stumbled on this - a basic recipe using only three ingredients. Three ingredients! That's got to be just about foolproof, right? Right.
This chocolate fudge recipe makes fudge that is creamy and succulent, that you can pluck with ease from the fridge any time you want - as a midnight snack, dessert, afternoon tea, you name it!
Although this chocolate fudge takes a bit of a while to set completely, it's worth it once you slice it up and bite into the first piece!
What you need - only three ingredients!
395g sweetened condensed milk
375g milk or dark chocolate (or you can use a half and half mix of both milk and dark chocolate to make the fudge sweeter to taste - but I guess that makes it four ingredients!)
How to make it
Chop the chocolate into small pieces and set them aside.
In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter.
Add the condensed milk and stir until everything is combined.
Take the butter and condensed milk off the heat. Pour the chocolate pieces in and keep stirring until the chocolate melts. The heat from the butter and condensed milk will melt the chocolate. If the chocolate doesn't quite melt all the way, turn the heat back on for a little bit and keep stirring until the mixture is smooth.
Line a slice tin with silver foil (to help remove the fudge from its tin after it has set), then pout the chocolate mixture in and spread it out evenly.
Let the fudge set in the fridge.
Once the chocolate fudge is set, it's ready to slice up. Lift the fudge from the slice tin using the silver foil. Set it on a countertop and slice it up into pieces.
Different combinations of varying amounts of chocolate can change the flavour of the fudge. To make a sweeter fudge, try using half and half quantities of white chocolate and milk chocolate. For medium level sweetness, use a full quantity of milk chocolate, and for slightly less sweet try combining half and half quantities of milk and dark chocolate. The fudge pictured was made using a full quantity of dark chocolate - yummy, a little bitter, creamy and very rich.
