Another one bowl super-easy microwaved treat!
I remember trying to make fudge as a kid. The vigorous bubbling on the stove was scary business. I always took it off too soon. I always made sticky goo instead of crumbly melt-in-your mouth decadence.
This recipe however, is a winner.
1 395g can of sweetened condensed milk
100g butter, cubed
1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 Tbs golden syrup
100g good quality chocolate – dark or milk. I use chocolate buttons/chips or whatever’s lurking in the fridge
butter to grease the pan
Put the condensed milk, butter, brown sugar and golden syrup in a 3 litre heat-resistant glass bowl.
Cook uncovered for 10-12 minutes on medium (750watts) stirring every 2 minutes.
When the entire surface looks bubbly and a bit “separated” it’s done.
Add the chocolate and stir until smooth and combined. This takes all of 10 seconds. Pour immediately into a greased 20cm pan. I use the same pyrex dish as the brownies.
Put it in the fridge until firm – usually about 1 hour.
Cut it carefully with a very sharp knife if you are giving it away. Otherwise, cut rubble looking chunks and enjoy. Try to stop at one piece.
