Quick Fudge

You can literally make great tasting fudge with just two ingredients and a few minutes of prep time. This is a great base recipe to start from. You can add in nuts, dried fruit, chilli powder for a spicy fudge, anything you can think up.

 

Ingredients

 

1 tin condensed milk

3 cups milk chocolate chips

 

Method

 

Pour condensed milk and chocolate chips into large glass mixing bowl.

Put bowl in microwave for 1 minute on high.

Mix condensed milk and chocolate chips until it becomes closer to a fudgy substance.

Line an 8” x 8” pan with baking parchment.

Pour in the batter and spread it out evenly.

Put it in fridge to cool for 2-3 hours.

Take it out of fridge, pull out baking parchment with fudge, turn over and peel away baking parchment.

Coconut Macaroons January 17, 2015

Coconut Macaroons

If you like coconut you’ll love these! Toasted and crunchy on the outside, moist in the middle along with a chocolate bottom.

 

Ingredients

 

14oz dessicated coconut

7/8 cup/7oz condensed milk (not evaporated!)

1 tsp vanilla extract

the white from 2 large eggs

1/4 tsp salt

6-8oz chocolate

 

Method

 

Preheat the oven to 160C/gas 3. Set oven racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, mix together the shredded coconut, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites and salt until stiff peaks form. Use a large rubber spatula to fold the egg whites into the coconut mixture.

Using two spoons, form heaping tablespoons of the mixture into mounds on the prepared baking sheets, spacing about 1 inch apart. Bake for about 25 minutes, until the tops are lightly golden and the bottoms and edges are deeply golden.

If dipping the macaroons in chocolate, melt the chocolate either in the microwave or over a saucepan of hot water. Dip the bottom of the macaroons in the chocolate then place them on baking parchment and place in the fridge until set.

Makes 22-24.

Malteser and Mars Bar Slice June 10, 2014

Malteser & Mars Bar Slice 1

Ok these are pretty amazing! If like me, you like chocolate, you’ll love these! Oh, also easy to make, which is always a plus 🙂

 

Ingredients

 

1 cup of Maltesers plus extra to decorate (240g & you’ll have some left over)

4 Mars Bars ( 53g bars)

1/2 cup Condensed Milk

1 pack of Chocolate Biscuits (250g) I used Fox’s chocolate munch)

200g bar Cadbury Milk Chocolate

100g unsalted butter

1 teaspoon oil (I used Olive oil but you could use vegetable instead)

 

Method

 

Line a tin with baking parchment (mine measured 25cm x 16cm but if you want a thicker slice use a smaller tin)

Finely crush the Chocolate Biscuits. You can use a food processor or the end of a rolling pin.

Roughly crush 1 cup of Maltesers.

Dice the Mars Bars into small pieces (easiest done if they’ve been in the fridge for a while first)

In a small saucepan over a low heat, melt the butter and condensed milk, stirring until combined.

Add the roughly crushed Maltesers and Mars Bars to the crushed biscuits and stir through.

Then add the melted butter and condensed milk and stir until combined – it will be very sticky!

Pour the mixture into the tin and flatten with the back of a metal spoon.

Pop it in the fridge for at least an hour until it has completely cooled.

Melt the chocolate and add 1 teaspoon of oil to the melted mixture, making sure you stir it in.

Pour the melted chocolate over the cooled slice and then decorate with remaining Maltesers.

Put the slice back into the fridge to set completely.

The easiest way to slice this is to take it out of the fridge half an hour beforehand. Enjoy 🙂

The 25cm x 16cm tin size made 15 slices.

 

 

 

Quick Brownies August 9, 2012

These are delicious and only need a few ingredients.

 

Ingredients

 

1 1/3 cups of biscuits crumbs, digestive or rich tea are good

1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips

4 1/2 Tbsp butter or margarine, melted

1 (14oz) can condensed milk

 

Method

 

Line a 9 ins square tin with parchment paper. Heat the oven to 175C/gas mark 4.

Blend the melted butter with the condensed milk.

Stir in the biscuit crumbs and the chocolate chips. Pour the dough into the prepared tin and spread it out evenly.

Bake in the centre of the oven for 25 – 30 minutes until golden brown and slightly puffy. Leave to cool completely then cut into about 16 bars.

 

Tip: Don’t turn all the biscuits into too fine a crumb, it’s nice to have some small pieces in there too.

If you find you don’t have any chocolate chips the day you decide to make these, just get a hammer, as I did, and whack a chocolate bar a few times 😉

 

Rum Fudge December 14, 2011

Filed under: Condensed Milk,White Chocolate — dogsmum @ 8:57 pm

This is a really easy fudge recipe.

Ingredients

300g white chocolate

200ml sweetened condensed milk (ohhhh I love that stuff)

2 tsp rum flavouring

baking parchment

a dish or baking tin

Method

Line your baking tin or dish with baking parchment before you start heating the ingredients, to avoid a panic when it comes to stage 3

1. Put the condensed milk and white chocolate into a saucepan and heat on a medium heat until the chocolate has melted.

2. Remove it from the heat and add the rum flavouring. Stir it in well.

3.Pour the mixture into the prepared dish/baking tin and put the dish into the fridge to cool for about 3-4 hours. If it seems too soft, leave it for a bit longer. Leave it overnight if you like (if you can)

4.Lift the block of fudge out of the dish (it should be easy if you lined it with greaseproof paper) and onto a chopping board.

5.Chop it into whatever size or shape you want.

THAT’S IT.

IT REALLY IS THAT SIMPLE!

To make Peppermint Fudge, replace the rum flavouring with with peppermint flavouring.

To make Almond Fudge, replace the rum flavouring with almond flavouring and some chopped almonds
