5 Minute Fudge!

5min Fudge 
The oven / stove in my new place is useless – the old tenants didn’t tell the landlord that the door didn’t shut properly, the plug on the side doesn’t go AND two of the elements don’t work.  Idiots!  If they had, the landlord would have got them a new one.  I told ‘em and a brand new stove is being delivered this weekend.  However, until then I can’t do any baking as I don’t trust the one we have.
So, I have been looking for a no bake slice recipe.  Something chocoaltey as I have been having mean chocolate cravings lately.  Naughty.  However, I couldn’t find one that appealed or wasn’t time consuming, but it got me thinking, what about fudge?  That doesn’t require baking.  I still didn’t want to spend as much time in the kitchen as my previous fudge recipes required, so I tried this recipe and it is super, super, SUPER easy.

To make it, you will need:
395g can sweetened condensed milk
50g butter
400g chocolate (totally up to you what type you use.  I used 200g milk chocolate and 200g macadamia chocolate as I wanted nuts in my fudge)

Stir the sweetened condensed milk and the butter over a medium heat until the butter is melted.  During this, stir the mixture constantly so that it doesn’t burn – if it looks like there are little brown crystal particles forming remove from the heat immediately and stir very rapidly to beat the heat out of the mixture.
Add the chocolate, stir until melted.  Pour in to a 18cm square tin and pop in the fridge for 2-4 hours to set (or, put it in the freezer and it is pretty edible after 30mins – I am eating some now!).  DONE AND YUM!

  1. I'm making this fudge at the mo - I used the whole can of condensed milk and multiplied the rest of the ingredients. I used Hazelnut choc (and a 1/2 milk, 1/2 dark choc combo), the mix tasted divine!!! Can't wait for it to set :-)
