Chocolate Fudge from scratch in under 10 minutes

Updated on June 19, 2013

Cooking Chocolate Fudge From Scratch

These days we can walk in to any super market and walk out with a bottle of chocolate fudge. Pillsbury, Cadbury, Nestle, or Hershey's, you name it and they make chocolate fudge available to you. Unfortunately they also need to use some amount of preservatives in order to increase the shelf life of their products. If you tend to pig out on chocolate regularly but want to avoid the preservatives, use homemade chocolate fudge. Here's a basic fudge recipe that can be made in under ten minutes.

Cook Time

Prep time: 1 min
Cook time: 9 min
Ready in: 10 min
Yields: Serves six people

Ingredients

  • 100g Butter, Soften the butter by keeping it at room temperature
  • 100g Sugar, Granulated normal
  • 4 tablespoons Cocoa Powder, Cadbury's Cocoa works well and is my personal choice
  • 2-3 drops Vanilla Essence
  • 5 tablespoons Milk, at room temperature
  • 50g Crushed and Powdered Digestive Biscuits, Marie Biscuits work best.

Instructions

  1. Take a thick bottomed cooking vessel so that the chocolate fudge does not burn. Add the butter and sugar to it.
  2. Mix the cocoa powder in the milk so that it forms a smooth paste. There should be no lumpy bits.
  3. Add the cocoa and milk paste to the melted butter and sugar mixture in the vessel. Stir well till blended.
  4. The vanilla essence can be added once the first boil bubbles come up. Cook for another two minutes till the fudge begins to thicken somewhat.
  5. Now add the crushed and powdered biscuits to the vessel. Switch off the heat and briskly mix the whole fudge till all bubbles pop.
  6. Pour it into a dish to set. Now let it cool before you cut it into desired shapes. Note - If you have some cookie cutters handy you can make some interesting fudge pieces.

      They are absolutely plain, with no flavor or cream filling, and are easy to digest when you are ill. One popular brand in India is Marie Biscuits

      We sell "digestive biscuits" at my store in the US, however, they are usually on sale cause no one here knows what they are and the name sounds a bit scary. What are they?

      This sounds really interesting. I imagine the powdered biscuits make it fool proof? I will have to give it a try. Thank you! ^
