Nutella fudge is something that I’ve been meaning to make for at least the last two years but I’ve never actually got round to making it though because there are at least a million Nutella fudge recipes online (me, exaggerate?) and each one of them seems a little different.
I’ve read comments on posts where people have had a disaster with theirs not setting and I’ve also read comments where it hasn’t been Nutella-y enough. Wasting perfectly good Nutella is not something my children would forgive me for so I just never ended up making it.
But when I was planning my Christmas posts (way back in August would you believe) I decided that this year was going to be the year when I would finally make it and I’m so pleased I did! I’ve made it twice since the first time I tried it and each time, everyone has LOVED it!
I finally got around to taking some photos of the finished result but I’d be lying if I said I made these – they’re all Miss Frugal’s work. 😉
- 200g chocolate chips or chocolate broken into small pieces
- 1 397g can sweetened condensed milk
- 25g butter
- 300g Nutella
- Line a baking dish with greaseproof paper to help you get the fudge out easier when it's ready.
- Add the chocolate chips, condensed milk and butter to a pan and melt them together over a low heat, stirring constantly.
- When they're totally combined, add the Nutella a dollop at a time and stir it into the mix.
- Pour the mix into your lined baking dish being as quick as you can as it does set quite quickly.
- Pop it in the fridge to set - we left ours overnight and it was perfect in the morning.
- Use a sharp knife and cut the block of Nutella fudge into strips and then into small rectangles trying to touch it as little as possible as your warm hands could start to melt the fudge.
Don't be tempted to try and slice it too soon! I even put mine in the freezer for half an hour sometimes before I slice it just to keep it as cool as possible when I'm slicing so it doesn't get squidgy.
I put mine into small cellophane bags to be given as little gifts when I hand-deliver some of my Christmas cards and it always brings a smile to peoples faces!
Honestly, it’s just amazing!
