Traditionally, we give mithai (Indian Sweets) when we do the Rakhi Ceremony. I have been thinking what should I do, as I refused to give Indian sweets. So this time I decided to do something different and I wanted to make it myself too.. which will be made with love.
I want to say thank you to my blogger friend Priyanka from CookwithPriyanka for posting Chocolate Fudge recipe which gave me an idea. I decided to make Chocolate Chip Cookies & Chocolate Fudge.
So now my search for Chocolate Fudge recipe started. After looking at a few recipes decided on one from The Joy of Baking. This Chocolate Fudge is super easy and even a non chocolate lover like me tried it and like it. My daughter has been going crazy all day…
- 450 g dark chocolate ( 60 g cocoa)
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 can condensed milk (14 oz)
- 1 cup water
- 2 tsp vanilla essence
- 1/2 cup cashews ( nuts of your own choice)
In a mixing bowl (heat proof) add dark chocolate, butter, and condensed milk. In a big sauce pan, add water and place the mixing bowl in it. Make sure the water is not touching the mixing bowl. Let the chocolate melt, stirring continuously making sure the chocolate doesn't get too hot.
Stir in until smooth. The mixture will be very thick. Remove from heat and add vanilla essence and chopped nuts of your choice.
Line the dish with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Pour the mixture and garnish with nuts or whatever you prefer. It is not required but you can do it. I sprinkled a few more cashews on top.
Put it in the fridge for it to set for a couple of hours. Cut it into the desired shape. It is ready to be served.
This can be given as gift for Diwali, Rakhi, or any other festival.
