I made this fudge over the weekend as a present for a friends birthday and was so pleased with the outcome that I decided to share it on here. Its like the middle part of a chocolate brownie or a super thick chocolate frosting, you really can't just eat 1. I plan on making more and combining with other treats for Christmas hampers for friends. Next time I will also sprinkle some chopped hazelnuts on top for a bit of a crunch.
Recipe from Lorraine Pascale
You will need-
- Vegetable oil for greasing
- 70g unsalted butter
- 300g soft light brown sugar
- 125g evaporated milk
- 225g marshmallows
- 300g chopped milk chocolate
- 75g chopped dark chocolate (at least 60%)
Begin by greasing a 20cm square tin (I used 2 smaller tins) and then line it with greaseproof paper. Make sure you cut the paper longer than you need so it goes up the sides of the tin and makes removing the fudge easier.
Put the butter, sugar and milk in a pan over a low heat and melt gently.
When the sugar has dissolved add the marshmallows. Turn up the heat to a medium and then boil the fudge for 5-6 minutes
Finally take the fudge off the heat and add the chocolate. Stir until it all melts and combines then pour into the prepared tin. Leave to set for a few hours and then cut into bite sized squares.
