Chocolate Fudge

With all the snow today, I decided to make some fudge, i have no idea why really.  I have a really good recipe for fudge which never fails me…

1 1/2 lb sugar

4oz butter

6floz evaporated milk

5 oz dark chocolate (although i have used white in the past and it’s very good)

1 tsp mint or ginger essence

Put everything except the mint or ginger in a big pan, and stir, over a lowish heat until it’s all melted.

Bring it to the boil, then boil it for 10-15 mins, until a small amount dropped into a bowl of cold water forms a soft ball.

Take it off the heat and leave it for 5 mins.

Then add in the flavouring, and beat the fudge for a couple of mins until it’s thick and smooth.

Pour it into a tray. Mark out squares.

When it’s properly cold, the fudge will snap slong the squares you’ve marked out….

  1. I love fudge but still have not got round to making any, I have a distinct feeling I would eat the lot! Love the idea of mint or ginger essence mm

    • You should make some! That fudge is dead easy to make as well, and works every time. It’s good with the mint, but i love it with ginger
