Oh fudge!

fudge

Remember how people used to say ‘fudge’ instead of a much stronger f-word alternative? Well that’s kind of what I was thinking after I created this somewhat lacklustre ‘fudge’. I went wrong thinking I could mix two average chocolates and get a rich chocolately flavour. I thought the white would make a lovely swirly effect, but it just dulled down the flavour. It reminds me of when the Swiss people at a language school I went to in Munich Β turned their noses up at a couple of well intentioned Tim Tams due to their pale brown colour.

Anyway, seeing as I have a history of blogging disasters I thought I would press on and post a how to recipe in reverse. All that is in the recipe is about 400g of chocolate (some obviously gets lost in the preparation), a tin of condensed milk and 30g of butter. I also threw in some chopped walnuts for luck.

Melt it all in a pot on the stove.

Pour the gooey goodness into a lined tray and then put it in the fridge to set for a couple of hours.

When set, chop it into bite size pieces and marvel at what a disappointing dessert you’ve made.

Three cheers for mediocrity! Seriously, just use better quality chocolate.

    The secret is to use the darkest chocolate you can find. The condensed milk is sweet enough as it is. The next one will be better!

      Thanks Sam! And welcome to the blogging world πŸ™‚ I find a lot of blogs are like showreels that only display all the attractive things in life and I choose not to subscribe to that method haha.
