Cooking Time : 10 minutes
Servings : Makes 600 gm
135 gm semisweet chocolate - chopped or grated
135 gm milk chocolate - chopped or grated
1/2 can sweetened condensed milk
70 gm almonds - lightly crushed using a rolling pin or roughly chopped in a food processor
2 tablespoons butter
Line a baking dish/square cake tin/thali with aluminium foil and grease the foil with some butter or cooking spray.
Now,stir the semisweet chocolate,milk chocolate,sweetened condensed milk and butter in a sauce pan over low heat.The moment chocolate melts,switch off the heat and add almonds.Mixing almonds may be a little difficult,since the chocolate will be thick and glossy,but do not worry,this is just a sign of good fudge.Transfer this mouthwatering sweet treat into the greased pan,smoothing and pressing it down with a spatula,to release any air bubbles.Allow it to set for four to six hours.You may also like to refrigerate it once it cools down to room temperature.
Cut into 1" squares and store in an airtight container for yourself,or in zip lock bags for giving away to friends.
1. Using a greased aluminium foil not only prevents the fudge from sticking,but also makes it easier to remove from the baking dish/cake tin/thali.
2. The chocolate should be removed from heat as soon as it melts,so that it does not become grainy.
3. If you like,sprinkle some cake sprinkles or Christmas sprinkles over the fudge,once it has been put in a vessel for setting.
Try using this recipe with walnuts or pistachios instead of almonds.
|Making your own fudge is not at all difficult,rather very simple and fast;Economic too!|
