MrsL's very chocolatey chocolate fudge recipe



I made this yesterday; quite often the call goes up on a Sunday evening - "Got any chocolate?", and we inevitably don't, so I made this as the next best thing, but it's actually better than anything chocolatey you could buy! Easy recipe, but keep an eye on it as it's boiling sugar.

1 can condensed milk (397g)
4 oz butter
1/4 pint milk
1lb demerara sugar
3 tbsp good quality cocoa

Put the milks, butter and sugar in a large pan and heat gently until well melted and amalgamated; turn up the heat and boil steadily for 10 - 15 minutes, then test by dropping a tiny amound into a glass of cold water. If the fudge forms a soft ball, it is ready. When ready, remove from heat and gently mix in the cocoa, carefully - it will still be boiling in the pan although off the heat. Beat well and steadily for 5 - 10 minutes, with a wooden spoon or an electric whisk - when it goes thick and grainy it is ready. Pour into a greased tin and leave to set until firm, cut into squares. Enjoy.
