This is an easy recipe, using condensed milk, that can be made with children. Even though it requires heating and therefore adult supervision, you don't need a thermometer, or any technical requirements. Due to this it does have a slightly different texture to more traditional fudge but is still very tasty. So here is our easy chocolate fudge recipe.


70g Butter
200g Milk Chocolate
100g Dark Chocolate
250g Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Sweets to decorate the top of your choice, we used white chocolate buttons, and smarties

Grease a square tin (24cm/9”, larger or smaller will do, it will just change the depth of the fudge). Then line the tin with greaseproof paper.

Put a couple of inches of boiling water in a saucepan, and place a heatproof bowl on top of the saucepan, making sure the bottom of the bowl doesn't touch the water.

Break the milk and dark chocolate into chunks, and cut the butter into lumps, add both to the bowl, also add the condensed milk and vanilla extract to the bowl.

Heat everything over a low heat until the chocolate and butter has all melted.

Once it's melted stir it all together, and then pour it all into the tin.

Add the sweets to the top, pushing them in a little bit so they stick.

Let the tin cool, and once cooled, pop the tin in the fridge for about 6 hours or overnight.

They are now ready to eat, share and enjoy.
