Chocolate Nut Fudge


Chocolate Fudge

Fudge is one of those lovely delicacies that gets forgotten when a block of chocolate is about!!  But I love nothing more than a delicious a creamy fudge.  I have two favourite fudge recipes.  This one actually incorporates chocolate as well!

Chocolate Fudge
















Ingredients

  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup of cream
  • 60g of butter
  • 155g dark chocolate, melted
  • Splash of vanilla essence
  • Chopped pecans or walnuts


Butter a 20cm square cake tin or glass dish and then set aside.

In a 2.5 litre (10 cup), heavy- based saucepan, mix together the sugar, milk, cream, and butter until combined.

Stir mixture constantly over moderate heat until it reaches 114 degrees celsius on a sugar thermometer, or until a teaspoon dropped into icy water can be shaped into a soft ball with your fingers.

Remove from the heat.  Stir in chocolate and add the vanilla.  Cool to lukewarm if you prefer a smooth creamy fudge.  For a more grainy texture, start beating while the fudge mixture is still hot.

Beat steadily with wooden spoon until mixture thickens and begins to lose its gloss.  Pour at once into tin.  Cut some  pecans or walnuts and press some on the surface of the fudge.

Cut the fudge into squares with a  sharp knife before it firms completely.

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz!
