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!
