Valentine's Day Chocolate Peppermint Fudge


'The way to a man's heart is through his stomach.'


If cooking for a man is a good way to win his affections then why not cook him up some fudge for a Valentine's treat?
This is a surprisingly easy recipe! So go ahead and try it out.

Ingredients:

395g   Tin Sweetened Condensed Milk

50g     Unsalted Butter, cubed

200g   Finely Chopped Lindt Mint Intense
200g   Finely Chopped Dark Chocolate (Plain)

Method:
  • Line the sides and base of a 16cm (6") x 26cm (10") baking tin.
  • In a medium saucepan, gently heat the condensed milk and butter on low heat until melted.
  • Stir continuously to stop the mixture from sticking to the bottom of the pan and burning.
  • While the mixture is warm, stir in the chocolate until completely melted. Immediately pour the fudge into the baking tin.
  • Smooth the top and refrigerate until firm (2-4 hours).

Line the baking tin.


Break the chocolate up and place in the food processor.


Blend at top speed till chocolate is finely chopped.


In a medium saucepan, gently heat the condensed milk and butter on low heat until melted. (I took the picture while stirring at the same time!!!)
Stir continuously to stop the mixture from sticking to the bottom of the pan and burning.


While the mixture is warm, stir in the chocolate until completely melted. Immediately pour the fudge into the baking tin.


Smooth the top and refrigerate until firm (2-4 hours).
When set, cut the fudge into squares.

Did you notice that I printed out my 'Red Heart' artwork and used it to brighten up this picture.
Store at room temperature in an airtight container.

Live, love, create!
