It's Friday night which means... it's the weekend! And I know I am not the only person out there who enjoys spending their Sundays in slobby clothes baking and making sweets. A couple of weeks ago, DC's mother bought me some silicone chocolate moulds so I HAD to give them a try! Homemade chocolate is most definitely on my list (even though I can't eat it anymore... boo!) but first, I gave chocolate fudge a try - and my own little spin... marble!
I used a recipe that I found on good old Pinterest (here) but made a couple of amendments.
To start, you will need:
If you follow Chocolate and Carrot's recipe, you will need a lot more chocolate chips, but both 100g bags used 1/3 of the condensed milk and (around 67g for each kind) and made around 12 fudges.
- Heat the chocolate chips and condensed milk until they are mixed together, making a thick texture
- Spoon it into the mould
- Let them set for a couple of hours in the fridge
The result is a fudge that is soft and chewy, but is not so chewy that it gets stuck to your teeth. They are moreish but, at the same time, you can just eat one and be satisfied (for a little while...) So easy, and so delicious! I plan on making some more this weekend (for other people of course!)
I also made some of my homemade truffle mixture (see the recipe here) to give the other chocolate moulds a try, complete with piped chocolate and white chocolate chip decorations.
