Chocolate Fudge | Easy Chocolate Fudge Recipe

What is Chocolate Fudge?

Melt in the mouth, boosting with chocolaty flavor, chocolate fudge is the tastiest dessert you will ever have. Fudge is very close to Indian barfi. It is soft, it is sweet and chocolate fudge is so so chocolaty. Further, it is loaded with some nuts, walnuts in case of this recipe. The soft chocolate simply melts in the mouth and the contrasting bite of the nuts adds so much to it.

Chocolate recipes are my favorite choice when it comes to gifts for friends and relatives. I love to make fudge as well as chocolate truffles. Chocolate truffles allow so much of customization that it is a breeze to make those beauties. Further chocolate recipes are simple and forgiving. Homemade chocolates can make the day of the person they are gifted to. The icing on the cake if it is a milkmaid recipe because then it is easy and so quick.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Chocolate Fudge recipe

Chocolate fudge can be prepared in a number of ways. This is, if I can say so, the chocolate fudge recipe calling for minimum ingredients. Chocolate, condensed milk plus butter and nuts, which are totally optional! Traditionally fudge is prepared with cocoa powder and milk and sugar with butter. I have yet to try my hands on that recipe. Let’s have a look at the ingredients required for this easy and quick chocolate fudge recipe:

Chocolate: Well, without getting into the debate of true or false chocolate, I would like to state that I used the dark chocolate compound for this chocolate fudge recipe. Dark chocolate compound is a large bar of chocolate which is easily available at the confectioners or grocers as well as online.

Condensed milk: The next important ingredient for the fudge recipe is the condensed milk. I like to use homemade condensed milk.

Nuts: In this recipe, I have added chopped walnuts. However, my favorite add ons are the salted almonds. Further, the chocolate fudge has been garnished with slivered pistachios, as I love the contrasting green color of pista on the chocolate.

5.Soft Ball Stage: To check if the mixture has reached the soft ball stage, take a glass of cold water. Add a small portion of the mixture. Let it sit for 30 seconds. Take it out and make a ball with it. If the mixture dissolves in water or the ball can’t be formed, it means the mixture is under-cooked. Cook it further. If the ball can be formed but it is a hard ball, as in it can’t be pressed easily, then the mixture is over-cooked and I am afraid nothing can be done 

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
