Sharing recipes is like sharing a trade secret I always think, but if you don’t share them then less people can enjoy the wonderful tastes dancing along their tastebuds.
I stumbled upon this recipe a couple years ago while I was looking for some interesting new desserts to try. Growing up I’d always enjoyed making desserts much more than making main meals (I’ve always had a bit of a sweet tooth), in my eyes they were prettier, more eye catching and more enjoyable.
The following is a very simple yet versatile fudge recipe.
4 1/2 Cups of sugar
1 Large Can of Evaporated Milk
1 Cup of Butter
18 Oz Chocolate Chips
3 Tb Spoons Vanilla Essence
Dash of Salt
Cook together the sugar and evaporated milk in a large stainless steel saucepan to a rolling boil for 6 minutes, stirring constantly.
After the 6 minutes are up, remove from the heat and add the butter, chocolate chips, vanilla and a dash of salt.
Stir until mixed and if needed, put back on the heat to ensure it is all combined.
Pour the mixture into a lined or buttered pan and allow to stand for 6 hours before cutting.
The fudge will keep for quite awhile in a cookie tin or a sealed container in a cool place.
This recipe is so versatile, you can add peppermint instead of vanilla, also add walnuts if you like, or you can change it completely and add coffee beans to give it a bit of a different kick. The choice really is up to you and your imagination. I bet, if you even tried, you could make one taste a bit like turkish delight!
Have fun guys 🙂
