    Ingredients

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

    Method

    • 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).

    • 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.

    • Chill in the fridge for 1 hour until set, cut into squares.
