A Recipe For Jessica


After a lovely letter from Jessica, we've added a recipe for quick and easy microwaveable fudges that can be made at home with adult supervision.
Please note these recipes still involve sugar at high temperatures which can cause severe burns and this recipes should only be made by an appropriate adult.
You can be as creative as you like with this recipe, using all sorts of different flavourings or even try adding some food colours.
I've used this recipe quite a few times when making fudge for friends and family and I don't have enough time to use the traditional soft ball methods.

Ingredients:
  • 397 g condensed milk 
  • 55 g unsalted butter
  • 500 g cooks chocolate (I like to use white chips from Aldi/Sainsburys)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 bags of your favourite sweets preferably chocolate ones!

Instructions

  • Line a 9x9Inch tray with greaseproof paper and leave to one side.
  • In a microwaveable bowl add the condensed milk, unsalted butter,  chocolate and vanilla extract
  • Microwave in 20-30 second bursts until it is all melted - stir between each burst. It should take about 2-2.5 mins depending on the strength of your microwave.
  • Once it is all melted, make sure its mixed thoroughly and pour in your chosen sweets. 
  • Mix one last time to ensure your sweets are evenly spread and pour into your tin. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours until set. 
  • Once set, remove from the tin and cut into squares, if your fudge is too soft, it might a few more hours in the fridge.

 

Please note, this fudge doesn't need to be refrigerated to set, but may take up to 24 hours at room temp.

The fudge will keep for around 2 weeks in an air tight container.

You can use whichever chocolate you like. I like white chocolate as it allows for use of different flavourings and colourings.
