Christmas is so close you can taste it! I made this fabulous fudge today ready for little gifties on Christmas day. You can make fudge well ahead of time, it lasts well in the fridge or can even be frozen and defrosted.
I’ve seen some people make fudge in the slow cooker, but honestly, who has time for that! This recipe takes only 5 minutes to make and requires NO preparation and the great thing about it is you can make any variations you like to the standard recipe. I made classic chocolate topped with Jaffas and double layer white chocolate with sprinkles.
Peppermint fudge – Omit the vanilla extract and replace with peppermint extract
Lemon meringue fudge – Omit the vanilla extract and replace with lemon extract. Stir through crushed mini meringues before pouring into the tray to set.
Tim Tam fudge – Crush a packet of tim-tams and stir through the mixture before pouring into the tray to set.
Great toppings to try – pop rocks, areo balls, sprinkles, M&M’s, hazelnuts
For the white chocolate I recommend using a little less of the condensed milk, leave about 2cm worth in the bottom of the tin and this will help your fudge to set firmer.
Merry Christmas to all my readers, have a safe and wonderful holiday x

Place all the ingredients into a large saucepan on low heat. Stir with a spatula until smooth, then stir for a further 2-3 minutes. Pour into a slice tray lined with baking paper and place in the fridge for 2-3 hours until set.
