Mastering the art of making fudge can be tricky, and it never seems to look or taste as good as the bought ones. Until now.

This three-ingredient recipe is so simple, it'll have you whipping on your apron in no time, dicing up fudge for all of your party gatherings.

The best part? It only takes 15 minutes to prepare.



Chocolate Fudge
400g dark chocolate
395g condensed milk
60g unsalted butter

Method
Line a 20x20cm tin with greaseproof paper. Melt chocolate in a large bowl over hot water. Place butter and condensed milk in a saucepan and stir continuously over medium heat until butter has melted, and mixture is hot. Pour the condensed milk mixture in with the melted chocolate, and stir until it becomes thick and glossy. Spread the mixture evenly in the pre-prepared tin and refrigerate for several hours, or until firm. Cut into cubes and you've made an impressively easy and ridiculously tasty treat.

Variations
It's easy to make this recipe your own by adding a few extras, like licorice allsorts, crushed biscuits, or jelly lollies. One of my favourites is Black Forest Fudge. Chop up some mixed nuts and glace cherries, and add them to the melted chocolate before mixing in the condensed milk mixture. It's that easy.



Another simple variation of this recipe is to substitute 200g of the dark chocolate with 200g of flavoured chocolate, for example: orange, chili or ginger flavoured chocolate. Lindt do a great range of these types of flavours. Melt your chosen flavour together with the dark chocolate, add in the condensed milk mixture, and you've made flavoured fudge.

Now this is a special treat. The chocolates in the photos look like they were professionally made, especially those in the bottom photo. If I didn't know better, I would say that those chocolates came from Darrel Lea. What a remarkable feat!
