Extra time:1hr setting ›
- Break up your chocolate into pieces and place in a microwave safe bowl. Add between 2 to 5 heaped tablespoons of frosting (I found dark chocolate needed a bit more than milk and white chocolate so I just put roughly how many tablespoons you'll need).
- Give it a light stir and put it in the microwave for 30 seconds (800W), After the 30 seconds, take it out and give it another stir. Place back into the microwave and put in for another 1 minute (800W chocolate brands and microwaves may vary).
- Once you take the mixture out the microwave for a second time, once again give it a light stir. At this point you should find that the mixture is thickening and hardening up quickly, so get a container or ice cube tray and quickly spoon in the mixture. Don't panic if the mixture becomes crumbly or lumpy after stirring. The consistency won't be smooth but if your using a mould or a silicon ice cube tray it should come out looking a little better. Place in the fridge to set.
- Allow to set in fridge for 1 to 4 hours (it hardens quite quickly) and once set you can cut it into slices or remove from the rubber ice cube tray and serve.
Frosting and chocolate combinations
You can use what ever frosting or chocolate you want. I found that some good combinations were: White choc. and strawberry frosting; Milk choc. or dark choc. and vanilla frosting; Milk choc. or dark choc and chocolate frosting; white choc. and lemon frosting.
At first the texture is crumbly like Scottish tablet when you take it out the fridge after a few hours but it hardens up and sometimes becomes quite tough after being in the fridge after a long period of time.
I suggest just making the frosting measurements up because it varies on what type and brand of chocolate you use. Also microwave ovens may vary so your better just putting it in for however long you think it needs for example if the chocolate isn't thickening, adding more frosting.
Many additional ingredients can be added to the fudge such as sprinkles, nuts, raisins, cherries, biscuit pieces, etc.
