Easy Chocolate Fudge That Will Make You Drool

Chop the chocolate fudge into squares and ENJOY!

We went to a friend’s house on New Year’s Eve, rather than pay loads of money to eat out somewhere.  I supplied the bubbles and a starter, whilst she made the main course.  I also took this ridiculously easy-to-make chocolate fudge, which was a big hit.

It’s very simple to make and literally takes five minutes.

Here’s what you’ll need:

I cup chopped chocolate (I chopped up 1 x 150g bar of supermarket brand, milk chocolate – but use dark or white chocolate if you prefer)
170g tube of condensed milk
1/8 cup butter
1/8 cup peanut butter (if you don’t like peanut butter – make it 1/4 cup butter instead)

I also added a handful each of roughly chopped almonds and currants, but you can just as easily leave these out.

Here’s what you do:

Put the condensed milk, chopped chocolate, butter and peanut butter into a bowl and microwave at 800W for 2 minutes.

Take out, give it a good stir and put back into the microwave for a further 1 minute.

In the meantime, roughly chop the almonds and currants.

When the microwave pings, add the fruit and nuts to the mixture and give a final stir.

Line a plastic sandwich box (mine was 20 x 13 cms) with greaseproof paper and pour the thick mixture into it.  Spread out into the corners and allow to cool slightly before putting into the fridge for an hour to chill.

Cut up into squares and ENJOY!

  3. Yum, one of my favorite combo’s – chocolate & peanut butter. I was given a brownie recipe half s lifetime ago using similar ingredients, and although I can’t eat a lot of sweets I break it out from time to time.

  4. Hello Marianne This recipe looks lovely, I am going to try it soon.

    I wanted to tell you about a wonderful Musician that we heard yesterday. We are on holiday in Sydney. Yesterday we were walking in Hyde Park and heard Spanish Music. There was a young man sitting by the fountain playing Spanish Guitar. We stopped to listen for a long time, it was delightful; transported us back to Spain. His name is Tom Ward. I wondered if any of you have heard him play?

    • HI Paula – good luck with the fudge 🙂

      How wonderful to have heard Spanish music in the middle of Hyde Park! Can’t say I’ve heard Tom play – I wonder if he has any videos posted onto YouTube?

  5. Hi Marianne, I was new to blogging last year and I guess I have explored hundreds of different blogs over the year – people who live in Spain, writers, photographers, foodies, book reviewers and some I struggle to define! That’s a lot of reading. And you too have read my blog, in its first year, when I was finding my way. So as a big THANK YOU for your support, I’d like to nominate you for the Dragon’s Loyalty Award.

  6. You do understand that even we men are on diets after Christmas don’t you. I salivate so much when you pass out the recipes that I have to wear a bib before logging on to my messages.

  7. How do you make it if you don’t have a microwave? The old fashioned ‘bain-marie’ way? Do you let it boil? or just melt? are the cup measurements American cup measurements? Sorry to be a pain 😦
