Oh, fudge!

We had our kindy fete last weekend and for some crazy reason I volunteered to be one of the sweet stall convenors. I didn't realsie how much cooking this would involve - basically making up the shortfall between donations and having a full table! So, I rolled up my sleeves, and got to work! I thought I'd share a couple of my favourite recipes with you.

I tried a few different recipes for fudge (and tested them on willing volunteers) and this was by far the easiest!

Chocolate Anything Fudge


500g chopped chocolate or melts (milk or dark - or a combination)
1 tin of condensed milk
75g butter
1 teaspoon of your preferred essence (vanilla, peppermint etc)
Additions - chopped nuts, mini m'n'ms or anything else that takes your fancy.


1. Grease a slice tray and line the base with baking paper.
2. Put the chocolate, condensed milk and butter in a saucepan and heat only until melted. You do NOT want it to boil!
3. Take off the stove and stir in your essence and additions.
4. Pour into your tray, then refridgerate overnight.
5. Cut into squares and package!


Another quick and easy sweet to make was freckles, which my daughter was very impressed with!



250g chopped chocolate or melts
25g copha
Hundreds & Thousands


1. Spray a mini muffin tray with cooking spray
2. Melt chocolate and copha - easiest in the microwave as you may need to refridgerate and remelt to make consecutive batches.
3. Place a teaspoon of chocolate mixture in the bottom of each muffin hole, and sprinkle with Hundreds & Thousands.
4. Refridgerate until set then remove and place in a airtight container.

To make bigger or shaped Freckles, grease cookie cutters or egg rings and place on a tray lined in baking paper. Make sure it's flat and spoon chocolate mix into shape etc.

Happy sweet making!
