So, at my wedding (there’s a few pics on our facebook page) my Dad decided to share with everyone what a gross child I was in his speech and how I used to eat Nutella by the spoonful and hide the empty jar under my bed. It’s a true story, but still. I remember feeling mortified rather than any nice words he might of said!
Anyway, we popped around to Courtenay’s place last weekend because it was Max’s 4th birthday party. (Yup. Can you believe it? We’ve been blogging since before he was born! Want a trip down memory lane? Take a look back to check out one of the very first pics of him or a very pregnant Courtenay in our old posts.) While there Simon and I were given two big jars of Nutella to take home since Courtenay’s husband Shane was at the wedding and heard my Dad’s speech and he has decided to try out a Paleo diet.
I decided to use some of it up by making this Nutella fudge. It is super easy to make and made in one pot, so very little mess. The fudge has a delicious Nutella flavour and a smooth creamy texture. I figured I love Nutella and making fudge, so why not combine the two. Yum!
1 cup Nutella
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 can condensed milk
250g milk chocolate, broken in to chunks (I used Whittakers Milk Chocolate as I love the smooth, creamy texture it has)
Grease and line a slice tin with baking paper (I used a 20 x 20cm square pan). Place all the ingredients in a large saucepan. Place the saucepan of ingredients over the top of a slightly smaller saucepan filled with simmering water.
Melt all the ingredients until the mixture is smooth. This takes about 10 minutes.
Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and refrigerate until set (I left mine overnight but it shouldn’t take anymore that 5-6 hours at the most).
Cut into squares and serve. Keep stored in the refrigerator.
