- 395g can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 100g unsalted butter, chopped
- 200g dark chocolate, chopped
Grease and line a 21x11cm loaf pan extending paper on long sides to create handles.
Place the condensed milk, brown sugar and butter in a medium saucepan. Cook and stir over a low heat for 3-4 minutes until butter has melted, sugar has dissolved and it is well combined.
Add the chopped dark chocolate and cook and stir for a further 3-4 minutes until chocolate has melted and mixture is smooth. Pour fudge mix into prepared pan.
This is the part where you can get creative with the flavour. Some ideas…
Make a small batch of White Chocolate Ganache by placing 50g of white chocolate and 1/4 cup of thickened cream in a medium heatproof bowl over a medium saucepan half-filled with simmering water (make sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water). Use a metal spoon to stir occasionally until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Pour mixture over fudge mix in pan in a swirly motion and tap pan to ensure smooth top.
Sprinkle a roughly chopped Cadbury Cherry Ripe bar evenly over the fudge mix in the pan.
Sprinkle 1/2 cup of desiccated coconut evenly over the fudge mix in the pan.
Chocolate Chip Fudge
Sprinkle 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (dark, milk, white or a mixture) evenly over the fudge mix in the pan.
There are so many variations you can create to suit your own tastes, but you can of course keep things simple and have just the plain chocolate fudge.
Once you have topped your fudge mix (or left it plain), cover the pan with plastic food wrap and chill for over 4 hours until set. Serve by cutting into pieces.
