This isn’t the proper stuff that takes ages to make and requires the use of a sugar thermometer, this is dead easy and very quick (apart from the time it takes to cool). You can add other flavours, like a splash of liqueur, some vanilla extract or, as I did, some instant coffee.
- 250g condensed milk
- 200g chocolate (I used a mix of plain and milk, but use whatever you want)
- 25g butter
- Pinch salt
Grease and line an 8″ cake tin (I used a round tin, but if you have a square or rectangular one you’ll get neat squares of fudge when you cut it). Put everything in a saucepan and warm over a moderate heat, stirring all the time, until everything is combined and looks glossy and shiny. Remove from the heat and pour into the prepared tin. Leave to cool for 20 minutes or so before transferring to the fridge to set properly (about 2 hours). Turn out of the tin and cut into bite size portions!
