This fudge recipe is made in the traditional way so there’s no fear of any crumbly bits. It’s so smooth and so delicious but does take a little time when you’re bringing it to boil but this is what gives you that smooth, professional and really beautiful finish so for special occasions, it’s definitely worth it.
The flavour is gorgeous, full of rich coffee which cuts through the sweetness perfectly! Homemade fudge is so different than more commercial versions. It’s full of flavour and doesn’t get lost in an overly sweet taste.
The recipe is perfect to give as gifts. I put 3 pieces into cellophane bags, wrapped with pretty ribbon and gave them as gifts. People raved about the flavour and even though it doesn’t sound like much, 3 pieces of this fudge is more than enough for most people!
I made this cake in a loaf tin. It’s one of those lovely “stand by” cakes which are great to have for just in case moments or a “I fancy a slice of something nice” moment … you know what I mean. It’s quite dense bake but it’s still moist and full of chocolate yumminess throughout.
A good one to add to your baking repertoire!
I’ll give you a little warning before you make this cake. It’s rich, it’s full on and it’s for true chocolate lovers. It’s really gooey and has a surprise centre of soft, creamy Nutella just for extra decadence!
I make this recipe in a baking tray so it can be cut into squares to share out.
You need 16 tablespoons of Nutella and it’s easiest to spray the measuring spoon with some oil beforehand to make it simpler to measure out without ending up covered in sticky Nutella 🙂
Traybakes are always a great idea for a crowd and Brownies are a sure hit. Combine both and you’re on a winning streak and this great one bowl recipe results in a rich, squidgy chocolate brownie that can be adapted to suit real chocolate lovers and those who perhaps like their chocolate on the lighter side.
Such a real treat and no baking involved with this recipe, just some melting and mixing. You can be as creative as you like with the topping. Using Maltesers along with rice krispies gives these delicious bites that something extra plus if you have young people at yours, they can get right in and be delighted with their results. Quick, easy and very, very delicious!
Sometimes in our house, chocolate is the only answer and the request came for “something chocolatey please”. First of all, I thought, I’ll make my chocolate brownies but then I wanted to try something new. I also had a bowl of marshmallow buttercream frosting left from a previous bake and thought it would make the perfect filling for the cookies. These cookies are a true chocolate lovers delight.
So this recipe can make up to 30 cookies depending on size and of course if you decide to sandwich them like I did, then you get half the quantity but oh they are pretty scrumptious and decadent so who’s counting.
