Dreamy chocolate fudge

    2 hours 9 min

    This is my take on a recipe by Nigella Lawson, Chocolate Fudge, which I have to admit was nice, but this is just amazing. The main problem I had with her recipe is that the fudge was not quite hard enough, so adding the extra amount of chocolate helped to harden the fudge up. Using salted butter helps to bring out the taste of the chocolate, and the coffee is also there to help bring out the chocolate taste.

    Serves: 6 

    • 50g salted butter or unsalted butter with a pinch of salt
    • 1 teaspoon coffee granules
    • 400g dark chocolate, at least 65% choco
    • 1 (375 ml) tin sweetened condensed milk

    1. Cube the butter and place in a bowl with the coffee. Break up the chocolate into small pieces, then add sweetened condensed milk.
    2. Put bowl into microwave for 3 minutes, but check on it every minute to give it a stir, so that the chocolate does not burn. (Or you could do this over a double boiler, so stop the chocolate to make it less likely for the chocolate to burn.)
    3. Once melted, take bowl out of the microwave and mix thoroughly. You can't really over-stir this, so go mad!
    4. Line a baking dish with cling film (don't worry - it wont melt). Pour prepared mixture in dish and even out to the sides.
    5. Let the dish cool in refrigerator for 2 hours. Cut into small squares and serve cold.

    If you fancy a hot chocolate fudge sauce, then you could melt a few squares with 2 tablespoons of milk, and pour over your favorite ice cream.
