This fudge is so quick and easy to make, and you can add anything to it.  At Easter I will add the little crushed eggs and for Christmas I add pistachio nuts or dried cranberries and white chocolate.  It is great for making a last-minute present, or to put in Christmas hampers. I sometimes take it as a gift in little cellophane bags when invited to someone’s home for a meal. You can literally add anything to it.  Maltesers are nice, as are bits of chopped up chocolate orange.  At Christmas I have seen people put a bit of gold leaf on it to make it look festive. It also tastes nice just plain.


14oz (197g) can condensed milk

12oz (340g) chocolate. It tastes better if it has half dark (I use 6oz (170g) Aldi 70% dark chocolate and 6oz (170g) of 33p cheap milk chocolate to keep costs down but keep it chocolatey)

1 tsp vanilla essence.

Line an 8 x 8 tin with parchment paper.


  1. Break the chocolate into small squares.
  2. Pour the condensed milk into a microwavable bowl and add the chocolate.
  3. Melt the chocolate and heat the milk in 30 second burst in the microwave and stir in between until chocolate is melted. Don’t over cook the chocolate.
  4. Add the vanilla essence and stir.
  5. If adding nuts or sweets I will scatter some in the bottom of the tin and pour the fudge over and smooth. I will then scatter some more nuts on top.
  6. Leave to set in a cool place for about 3 hours and then cut into squares. It does not need to be kept in the fridge and we keep it in a tin for up to a month.
