Chocolate Fudge (microwave fudge)
Almost too good to be true; five minutes of hard work (not really - only some stirring), a little patience while it cools and you have a tray of mouth watering home made chocolate fudge.
- 450g semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 can condensed milk
- 4 tbsp butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Line an 20x20cm baking tray with aluminium foil and spray it with non-stick cooking spray or use a piece of kitchen roll to spread a small amount of sunflower-oil or similar.
- In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips, condensed milk, and butter. Microwave it for one minute and then stir well. Stir until all of the chocolate and butter are melted, and the fudge is smooth.
It is better to let the heat of the bowl gradually melt the chocolate rather than microwave it to death, but if still not melted enough, you may then need to microwave it for another 30 seconds or minute.
- Once everything is melted and smooth, add the vanilla and salt. Stir until the fudge is totally smooth and well-mixed.
- Pour the fudge into the prepared pan and smooth it into an even layer. Place the fudge in the fridge to set for at least 2 hours.
- Once the fudge is set, take it out of the tray, this is where your foil lining comes in handy. Peel the foil from the fudge and cut it into small squares.
This fudge is best at room temperature, when it's perfectly creamy and smooth and melts in your mouth. It's just about the perfect chocolate fudge, and the best part of it, it only takes about five minutes to do!
