My little sister says, she finds a chocolate wrapper in each and every book I use to read….till date you can find one or two chocolate wrappers in the books I read….I don’t know why…but I never feel like throwing the wrapper……According to me…eating chocolate’s is a therapy…a luscious bar…when unwrapped from the gold foil….it gives soothing sensation to the senses….when you bite into it…when it starts to melt slowly by combining with the juices in your mouth….and when it slid through your throat…..Ummm….Muaahhhhhhhhhh…..it’s an yum experience……wait let me grab one to continue the post….

  • Stir the mixture’s occasionally until the chocolate has completely melted. Now add vanilla essence and give the mixture a gentle stir.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper/butter paper/foil. Pour in the contents into the tray and using a spatula spread evenly about ¼ inch thick. Sprinkle nuts evenly and tap the pan to settle the nuts into chocolate layer or gently press with your fingers to settle the nuts on top.
  • Leave the tray in the fridge for 1-1½ hour or until the chocolate fudge turns firm. Using a sharp knife cut into pieces or desired shapes or just break down to small slabs.

NOTES:

  • As you can see it in the pictures, I have used chopped Almonds, Cashews, Walnuts and Pistachios.
  • I used heart shaped cookie cutter to shape them.

MELTING CHOCOLATE:
  • DOUBLE BOILER METHOD: Take two bowls, one large enough to fit the second one on top. Grate the chocolate and place it in small bowl. In the large bowl, add water and fix in the small bowl with chocolate. On a low heat using a spatula give a gentle stir till the chocolate gets completely melted. Always remember the water in the lower bowl should not touch the upper bowl (the bowl with chocolate).
  • MICROWAVE METHOD: It’s easy and simple. Just add grated/chopped chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and melt it on high for 1- ½ minute, by stirring for every 30 seconds.

VARIATIONS:

Run your imagination wild and you can have much number of variations…..here is a list of few which you may love making….

HOT AND SPICY DARK CHOCOLATE FUDGE: Just add a pinch or more of mild flavour red chilli powder for that spicy hot fudge.

MINTY DARK CHOCOLATE FUDGE: Crush Polo peppermint and add it to the chocolate mixture.

DRY CANDID FRUITS FUDGE: You can even add dried candid ginger, dried apricots, cranberries, etc. as your fudge topping. It enhances the flavour and colour of the recipe.

SINGLE NUT FUDGE: You can simply add any one of your favourite nut to the topping and name it as Pistachio – Chocolate Fudge or Almond – Chocolate Fudge, etc.

NUTTY OATS FUDGE: Toss oats and add them along with nuts to the topping of chocolate layer.

PEANUT BUTTER NUTTY FUDGE: Skip off white chocolate and add 2 tbsp. of peanut butter. Rest is same.
