Ingredients

  • 400 g tin condensed milk
  • 500 g Dark Chocolate
  • or
  • 500 g Milk Chocolate
  • or
  • 600 g White Chocolate
  • Optional extras: Toppings of your choice. (See notes.)

Instructions

  • Line a small rectangular baking tray or cake tin with baking parchment.  If you don't have any, tin foil also works.
  • Break or chop the chocolate of your choice into pieces and place in a large microwavable bowl.  Pour over the condensed milk and mix together well.
  • Pop the bowl into the microwave and heat in short bursts of around 30 seconds, taking it out and stirring in between, until the chocolate has almost melted.  Be careful not to overheat.
  • Once the chocolate is melted, beat well with a wooden spoon until it all comes together smoothly.  If you would like to mix anything into the fudge, throw it in at this point and stir to mix in.
  • Tip into the tin and spread around so it is in an even layer in the tin.  Use a palette knife or spatula to smooth the top down.  If using toppings, add at this point, pushing them into the fudge quickly before it sets.
  • Pop the tray of fudge into the fridge and leave to set.  Once it has set hard, take it out and cut into pieces.  I like to cut mine into 6 mini slabs, scoring lines into the top and packing in cellophane bags to give as gifts.

Notes

*Suggested topping or flavourings to mix in:
Vanilla Essence: particularly good in the dark chocolate fudge - mix in before beating.
Dried fruit; Cranberries, raisins, blueberries, cherries, freeze dried strawberries (gorgeous in the white chocolate fudge), dried banana chips or a mix of whatever you have in the cupboard.  
Nuts; Walnuts, cashews, hazelnuts, pecans, macadamias or flaked almonds - Chopped or whole nuts, mix in or use to top the fudge (or do both!).
Chopped or smashed candy cane.
Marshmallows: Mix big marshmallows into the fudge or use mini marshmallows to top.
Chunks of contrasting chocolate: mix chunks of milk chocolate into white chocolate fudge or vice versa or press pieces of chocolate into the top.  Milky way magic stars, buttons, jazzies, maltesers, smarties or chocolate chips would also work well.
Swirled double chocolate fudge: make up two batches of contrasting fudge (e.g. white chocolate at milk chocolate) and swirl them together in the tin.  If you only want one batch, halve the recipe and put half of a tin of condensed milk in each bowl of chocolate.
Sprinkles: Try red and white nonpareils on dark chocolate, or snowflake sprinkles on white chocolate.
