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 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.
