Kirstie Allsopp shows you how to make this delicious chocolate fudge in our easy step-by-step video. This recipe makes a perfect present - and only takes 15 mins to prepare

Try any nuts or dried fruit you like in this recipe – pecans, pistachios, walnuts, hazelnuts and almonds all work really well. Or you could try adding cranberries, blueberries or even mini marshmallows!


  • 400g (14oz) dark or milk chocolate
  • 397g can condensed milk
  • 25g (1oz) butter
  • 100g (3½oz) icing sugar
  • 55g (2oz) roasted chopped nuts (optional)


  1. Chop the chocolate into small chunks and place in a non-stick saucepan with the condensed milk and butter, heat very gently, stirring occasionally until melted and smooth. (Alternatively place these ingredients into a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 10-20 second bursts, stirring frequently until the mixture is silky smooth).
  2. Beat the icing sugar into the mixture until combined thoroughly. Press the fudge into a 18cm (7in) square tin, smooth over the top and press the nuts into the surface, if using.
  3. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour until set, cut into squares.

Made these with the children for them to give as christmas presents. Easy to make but took ages set. Didn't really taste like fudge but they looked good and the children were happy with them!

Hardly chocolatey! Just tasted of icing sugar :-s

How long does this keep for?


If, like me, you dont have a large non-stick saucepan, use a wok! Did the job brilliantly.


Go Kirstie - these are lush! :)
