This is a very simple dish, which would prove very popular. Itâ€™s creamy, crumbly, and full of flavour.
Try a range of different flavours, and you can also use a range of fillings – candied fruit, biscuits and dried fruit are all great ideas.
Itâ€™s easy to make, but takes a while to clean up from afterwards, so place a little water in the pan, and heat up slightly to dislodge the bits that wonâ€™t come off easily!
To make 20 Squares
Butter, for greasing
125ml Whole Milk
1tbsp Cocoa Powder
Few Drops of Vanilla essence
1. Grease and line a baking tray about twenty centimetres square, and around three centimetres deep. Line with baking parchment, but donâ€™t worry about being neat with it.
2. Put the Milk, Sugar, Cocoa, Butter and Vanilla into a heavy-bottom pan and cook over a low heat. After a few minutes the mixture should be bubbling slightly around the edges, use a spoon to drop a small amount into a bowl of cold water. If it stays in shape, and you can pick it up and squeeze between your fingers, itâ€™ll be ready.
3. Remove from the Heat, and pour the Fudge into the baking tray. Let it stand for a few minutes, then add any decorations that you want â€“ make sure you add them whilst itâ€™s still hot, so that theyâ€™ll hold fast.
4. Leave to cool completely in a fridge, before cutting into cubes, and serving.
