Fudge

Here is the best fudge recipe I have ever known.  It is a little tricky to get right at first so I’ll add all the tips I have learned along the way.

185g butter

1 tin condensed milk

500g brown sugar

Put these ingredients into a large glass bowl and mix.  Put into a microwave and cook for about 8 minutes on a medium heat stirring about 3 -4 times.  It is going to get really hot, make sure you use oven mitts.  When it is ready it will be all combined and bubbling.  This is obviously not a recipe you want to make when kids are anywhere near you.

And then 375g roughly chopped cooking chocolate (you can use any type or flavour, dark choc will be very rich, white chocolate will give it a caramel flavour due to all the brown sugar.  The cheaper the chocolate the better, my nicest fudge has been from plain label cheap chocolate).  Add this quickly and combine very quickly with electric hand held beaters (or chuck it all in your thermomix if you are lucky enough to have one).  Then quickly put it in a square container that you have lined with baking paper (my square Tupperware slice container works well).  Set in the fridge but cut it at room temperature or the fudge will crack if you try to cut it straight from the fridge.

You can experiment as you go along.  Chopped nuts are great, macadamias are particularly nice. My sister had even added Rum for my brother-in-law and he loved it.

Enjoy!
