“Easiest ever, yummiest ever chocolate fudge. Well it's also the only chocolate fudge recipe I've ever used! This is a melt-in-your-mouth "hard" fudge - easy enough for kids to make (with appropriate supervision). I know I made it lots as a kid :)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Before beginning get everything ready. This is a time sensitive recipe.
  2. Grease or line with alfoil a cake pan or deep biscuit tray for the finished product to set inches.
  3. Clear the sink and get a hand-beater ready.
  4. It really starts here:
  5. =====================.
  6. Mix all ingredients in a medium saucepan and place over a low-medium heat. Stir until boiling.
  7. Rolling boil for 6 minutes - reduce heat to ensure it doesn't boil over, but is still at a rolling boil.
  8. Take off heat and place saucepan in sink (the lower height helps).
  9. Beat until it starts to thicken - a hand beater helps here as you can feel it thickening. This fudge goes from thickening to too far very quickly. The more beating it gets the better it is.
  10. Pour or scoop the almost set fudge into the tray.
  11. When set, cut into squares. A hot knife helps.
  12. Options:
  13. =====================.
  14. Push nuts into almost set fudge.
  15. Add a flavouring before beating.
  16. Cheating:
  17. =====================.
  18. If hand-beating, you can add a little water to the bottom of the sink to help the saucepan cool - the fudge thickens quicker - but isn't quite as good.
  19. Use an electric hand mixer to make the process painless - but watch the thickening.
