Chocolate & vanilla fudge

I had evaporated milk left over from the 'gypsy tart' I made the other day, so I wanted to use it up and make something yummy. This was originally going to be a vanilla fudge, but I decided last minute to throw in some chocolate and see how it turns out :D 

  • Skill level: Medium
  • Serves: 5 people
  • Prep time: 1 hour (time to cool)
  • Cooking time: around 30 mins
What you will need:

175g evaporated milk
150ml milk
85g unsalted butter
450g granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
200g milk chocolate
vegetable oil for greasing

How to make:

1) In a large, heavy based pot, put the evaporated milk, milk, butter and sugar on medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves and the butter has melted

2) Bring the mixture to the boil without stirring any more, allowing the temperature to reach 116 degrees Celsius (if you do not have a thermometer, you can test by placing a small amount of the mixture into iced water, if it forms a soft ball then it is ready). When the temperature rises, you can stir occasionally to ensure the sugar doesn't stick and burn

3) Remove from the heat, add the vanilla and chocolate, and mix with a wooden spoon until all the chocolate dissolves and the mixture thickens

4) Place into a greased tin, and leave for 10 mins to cool. Cut square pieces with a sharp knife, then leave in the fridge to completely cool and harden

According to my sister, these taste better than Thornton's! I was just pleased they turned out well alhamdulilah. Enjoy :)
