Chocolate fudge is soo sinful ! I have tried it soo many times and failed miserably. Either it did not set or it just turned into one greasy sloppy mass. I have a never say die nature and though I might give up for the moment, there is always this thought lurking in my mind to try and get a recipe right. Well today… I got it right! Just in time for Eid ! So all you chocolate lovers…here you are,…my easy peasy fudge recipe with roasted cashewnuts. You can use the nuts of your choice. A simple recipe with a few guidelines so you don´t get it wrong.
200 grams of dark chocolate, at least 70% I used THIS
190 grams of condensed milk, that is about half of a small tin approximately
1 tablespoon of salted butter
1 cup or a little less of roasted cashewnuts or nuts of your choice
In a non stick pan ( i used my ceramic pan) heat the condensed milk on low heat till it starts thickening a bit taking care not to burn. Add the chocolate (chop it or break it into bits) and let the chocolate melt. Once its melted leave it to cook for about 2 minutes on low heat stirring continuously. You will see the chocolate thickening. Add the butter and cook it till the butter melts and the whole mixture will be shiny. Cook it till it starts thickening and add the nuts, give it a good mix and take it off the heat. Put it in a plate and press it with wet palms or use a cake palette. Let it set for about 3-4 hours . Cut it into desired shape. Serve it to your loved ones and watch them go ooh la la!!!
NITU DIDI TIP:
If you dont cook it well enough it wont set and then you will have that gooey chocolately mass which will taste heavenly but which you cant cut into pieces. You can use a variety of roasted nuts of your choice. Variety is the spice of life!
