Easy 2 Ingredient Chocolate Fudge Recipe (2024)

Today's2 ingredient chocolatefudge recipeis seriously delicious,looksgorgeousand most important of all, isincredibly easy to make!

Be sure to check out my recipe video so you can see just how easy this is to make!

It's so simplethat my 6 year old could make it, so this fudge is a really greathomemade gift idea that children could easily make forteachers,friends or relatives,at Christmas or indeed throughout the year.

I make batch after batch of this every year for my family and friends at Christmas, and it never fails to impress, so I thought it was about time I shared the recipe!

The great thing about this recipe is that it can be customised to make endless varieties and flavours, so it never gets dull. You just take the basic recipe and mix in extras or add tasty toppings for a different fudge to suit every taste!

It's alsoincredibly quick to make - Imade 3 batches in one golast week, creating6 different flavours, and the whole process took me about 15 minutes from start to finish!

You can literally have a large slab of fudge setting in the fridge 5 minutes from starting making it - it doesn't get much quicker than that!

2 Ingredient Chocolate Fudge

Ingredients (fills 1tray- approx.6small slabs)

1 400g tin condensed milk
500g Dark Chocolate
or
500g Milk Chocolate
or
600g White Chocolate

(Optional extras): Toppings of your choice*

Method

Line a smallrectangular bakingtrayor cake tin with baking parchment. If you don't have any, tin foil also works.

Break or chop the chocolate of your choice into pieces and place in a large microwavable bowl. Pour over the condensed milk and mix together well.

Pop the bowl into the microwave and heat in short bursts of around 30 seconds, taking it out and stirring in between, until the chocolate has almost melted. Be careful not to overheat.

Once the chocolate is melted, beat well with a wooden spoon until it all comes together smoothly. If you would like to mix anything into the fudge, throw it in at this point and stir to mix in.

Tip into the tin and spread around so it is in an even layer in the tin. Use a palette knife or spatula to smooth the top down. Ifusing toppings, add at this point, pushing them into the fudgequickly before it sets.

Pop the tray of fudgeinto the fridge and leave to set. Once it has set hard, take it out andcut into pieces. I like to cut mine into 6 mini slabs, scoring lines into the top and packing in cellophane bags to give as gifts.

*Suggested topping or flavourings to mix in:

Vanilla Essence:a tsp of vanilla essence givessome lovelyextra flavour and is particularly good in the dark chocolate fudge - mix in before beating.

Dried fruit: Cranberries arelovely atChristmas, or try raisins, blueberries, cherries,freeze dried strawberries (gorgeous in thewhite chocolate fudge), dried banana chips or a mix of whatever you have in the cupboard. I used a great 'berries and cherries' mix to top some of my dark chocolate fudge this time.

Nuts: Chopped or whole nuts work well - mix in or use to top the fudge (or do both!). Walnuts, cashews, hazelnuts, pecans, macadamias or flaked almonds all work well.

Chopped or smashed candy cane: I popped a couple of candy canes into a plastic bag and crushed them with a rolling pin to top the other half of my dark chocolate fudge - but it this would work well with all three kinds of chocolate.

Marshmallows: Mix big marshmallows into the fudge or use mini marshmallows to top - there are some really fun seasonal shaped marshmallows around at this time of year that you could use to top the fudge too.

Chunks of contrasting chocolate: mix chunks of milk chocolateinto white chocolate fudge or vice versa or press pieces of chocolate into the top. I added milky way magic stars to the top of my white chocolate fudge, but buttons, jazzies, maltesers, smarties or chocolate chips would also work well.

Swirled double chocolate fudge: make up two batches of contrasting fudge (e.g. white chocolate at milk chocolate)and swirl them together in the tin.

If you only want one batch, halve the recipe and put half of a tin of condensed milk in each bowl of chocolate.

Sprinkles: Top plain chocolate fudge with sprinkles of your choice - there are some great seasonal sprinkles available in most supermarkets or online. Try red and white nonpareils on dark chocolate, or snowflake sprinkles on white chocolate.

I sent most of the fudge off toSmall Child'sschool Christmas Fayre,I hopeit was enjoyed by whoever purchased it!

Hopefully I've managed to give you plenty of ideas so you can make this fudge your own! Can you think of any other toppings to add?
