Whip up this quick and easy fudge in just 15 mins. Leave to chill and decorate with seasonal treats – chocolate eggs would make this the perfect Easter treat

Ingredients

  • 200g marshmallows
  • 70g butter, cut into cubes the size of a thumb nail
  • 200g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Zest of one orange (without pith)
  • 100g crimson raisins
  • 40g crystalised ginger chopped
  • Small sugar eggs to decorate (optional)

Method

  • Place the marshmallows, butter, dark chocolate, ground cinnamon and orange zest into a saucepan. Heat on a low hob until completely dissolved, stirring regularly. Don’t be tempted to hurry it by turning up the heat – the chocolate will burn!

  • Remove from the heat and add the raisins and ginger, stir well and pour into a tin (approx. 24cm x 24cm) lined with greaseproof paper. Push small sugar eggs into the top if you wish then refrigerate for 2 hours. Cut into squares and serve!
