Simple chocolate fudge
I decided to try my hand at making fudge in the microwave, and the results are fantastic! You find it takes a fraction of the time, and you can never harm yourself.
- 395g sweetened condensed milk
- 100g unsalted butter
- 200g dark brown sugar
- 3 Tbsp golden syrup
- 180g dark chocolate, chopped
- 2 tsp natural vanilla paste
1 Combine the sweetened condensed milk, butter, sugar and syrup in a microwave-proof bowl and cook on medium-high power for 7 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes.
2 Mix in the chocolate and vanilla and stir until combined, then beat well until glossy. Spoon into a lined 17cm x 27cm slice pan and flatten. Set aside to cool, then cover with cling film and refrigerate for 1 hour until firm. Cut into 36 pieces.
COOK”S NOTE: this recipe was cooked in a 900W microwave on 70% power.
