Triple Choc chunk fudge HOW to

Makes 1.8 kilo

Serving: MANY People

Preparation time: 10-15 Minutes

Cooking Time: 25-40 Minutes

Triple Choc chunk fudge syrup Ingredients

1.4 litres of sugar

3 tablespoons cocoa

1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

3 cups of milk

or 100gram milk powder & 3 cups water

1 teaspoon honey

350 gram chocolate

2 teaspoon vanilla

100ml cream or

3 tablespoons butter


Triple Choc chunk fudge Method

CHECK OUT the photos below for some examples before you get started

Line a 35 cm long baking dish with silicone baking paper for ease of removing fudge later

Place the cups of sugar, cocoa, milk powder and cream of tartar in a high-sided saucepan

Combine together to make a smooth mix as shown, don't worry about the lumps they add character

Make a slurry just like in the picture with 250ml of your milk or water and mix until smooth.

Over a high heat while stirring brush the sides of pot with EXTRA water, until no sugar crystals remain and dissolves completely stir regularly and bring to boil.

Turn the heat to low and DO NOT stir until the sugar mix reaches SOFT BALL or 112-115 degrees centigrade on a sweets thermometer. This takes 20-35 minutes depending on the amount.

See images... During this time the mix will surge boil at the various cooking stages and may come right to the top of the pot. IF your pot is large enough you won't have to remove it from the heat. Otherwise remove it from the heat until it settles then place back on, to cook more.

Once your mix has reached SOFT BALL or 112-115 degrees centigrade turn off & take off the heat.

Let the now fudge syrup cool JUST a little whilst you pour in the butter or cream & chocolate chunks

YOU NEED to work FAST from here or you'll have a nice fudge pot full of set fudge to hammer out.

Add vanilla then stir until the mix starts to stiffen for approximately 1-3 minutes. IF you still have chunks of chocolate don't worry it's meant to be that way, hence the name.

Quickly transfer the mix to a 35 cm long baking dish spread and smooth.

Allow to cool a few minutes & break apart or cut to your desired size. It is easier & more neat to cut the fudge whilst still warm

To easily release the fudge from the tray. Grab a baking tray place it on top flip the fudge onto it then put your cutting board on it and flip over.


Tips on Triple Choc chunk fudge

Don’t STIR THE MIX whilst it is boiling to avoid re crystallising of the sugar

Don’t leave the fudge syrup boil for too long, because the it can burn.

Soak your fudge pot for a half hour in hot water, whilst cleaning up and cutting the fudge, this will get most of the stuck fudge off.

Without the Milk, cream or cream of tartar the fudge syrup can be refrigerated for many months to be used in hot chocolate or as topping for cakes or ice cream

Because it took longer to write this than to make the Triple Choc chunk fudge I am seriously considering making videos instead from now on. Because really my passion is making up recipes trying them out and perfecting them, unlike writing essays like in school, though I sometimes enjoy writing. PLUS That way you'll get to see some of the entertaining stuff including bloopers.

      You have to know, I love to cook but rarely ever make candy, last night with the ingredients in hand I set out to make this delicious recipe. With a 3 qt high sided sauce pan I started out. Within minutes things were going well but around 95 degree cent the syrup mixture decided to doubled in height even with the heat on medium , what chaos and mayhem , it almost looked like a volcano erupting all over the stove top. Quickly removing it from the burner it still flowed over the top of my pan and all over the stove as I try to reach a larger pan to finish cooking out of. With a larger pan I was again on track , not knowing exactly why It went wild I now have the heat down even more and am stirring like crazy, for over an hour till I though my arm was falling off, lol, the syrup was more than doubling in size and I couldn't reach the last 20 degrees cent to make soft ball. Knowing I was whipped, I read your hub again and realized that I was stirring so fast to keep the expansion down that I was causing it to stay cool. I finally slowed down and gradually reached the ideal temperature . Adding the last ingredients I poured it into a dish to cool and cut. This was a crazy learning experience but I loved this recipe, the fudge is very rich and sweet. Though I could have lived without the sticky mess that I had made, I will for sure make this recipe again . Thank you for sharing it with us. :)

      Thanks so much ChristyWrites for the nice comment I enjoyed reading you chocolate lovers hub too. https://hubpages.com/food/Chocolate-lovers-unite-W...

      Whilst writing this comment I am sitting here munching down on some mouth watering Almond chocolate. Though YES it's the sweet type I enjoy all things chocolate except most commercial ice cream & cakes.

      I'm going to have to try finding one of the groups here in Australia OR HEY here's an idea I may just start one myself.
