Easy Recipes Rating:  Very Easy

Hands-On Time:  10 minutes

Hands-Off Time: Chill overnight

This takes just 3 ingredients, does not require baking and the children can decorate it with whatever takes their fancy, whether it's sprinkles, coconut or just hundreds and thousands.

My daughter made this fudge yesterday afternoon and yes, it is superbly yummy!  While she has a number of favorite recipes, she finds this one simplest.

Easy Chocolate Fudge

This recipe will make about 40 - 48 pieces of this yummy treat.

You'll need:

•    2 blocks/ 21 oz/ 600 gm chocolate

•    1/2 block/ 4 oz/ 125 gm butter

•    2 cups/ 16 oz/800 ml sweetened condensed milk

•    Your choice of topping, for example, chocolate sprinkles, hundreds and thousands, dessicated coconut

Here's how you put it together:

Line a square or rectangular cake tin or lasagna tray with grease proof paper. This is to help lift it out when it's set.

Into a saucepan on low heat, melt all the ingredients together except the topping

Stir till it is well combined. It should look smooth and shiny

Pour the mixture into the lined rectangular or square pan

Top it with sprinkles of your choice

Leave it to harden in the refrigerator overnight, for at least 6 hours.  We've found that it firms up much better left towards the back of the refrigerator where it's coldest.

Be sure to cover it with cling wrap just so there aren't accidental spills onto your fudge!

Cut into one inch squares and enjoy!

Easy Recipes Tips
for Recipes For Kids

  • To cut up the hardened fudge, just lift it out of the mold holding onto the edges of the parchment paper. Lift it up and place onto a chopping board

  • Now, Kids, comes the difficult part - you'll need to cut it up and the texture is too hard to use a butter knife.  Have an adult or parent use a heavy sharp knife to cut it up into squares. There's nothing more dangerous than a blunt one. It'll cut up into about 40 - 48 squares depending on how large you'd like them. But generally a one inch square is about right.

  • If the kids can manage to not devour them all, this makes  a terrific gift. Put a few on a little paper plate, wrap with cellophane paper and tie with an attractive bow.

    The kids friends will love to give little gifts and this makes an ideal and simple treat to make and present.  Have the kids wrap them individually in colored cellophane paper, and twist the ends, like candy wrappers.
