Chocolate Fudge

In my recent jaunts around the Northern English country side I was reunited with one of my favorite lolly shops in the high street of Haworth.  They make the most incredible fudge, which I must treat myself to daily!  Inspired by that moment of deliciousness I thought I'd unearth my mum's lovely chocolate fudge recipe!

Chocolate Fudge


2 cups of sugar
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup cream
60g butter
155g of dark chocolate, melted
Splash vanilla essence

Butter 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 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 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 a wooden spoon until mixture thickens and begins to lose its gloss.  Pour at once into a tin ( you can press some chopped pecans or walnuts to the surface of the fudge, if you like). Cut the fudge into squares with a sharp knife before it firms completely.

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz.
