Chocolate Almond Fudge


Valentine’s Day wishes to all!! On this special occasion I like to prepare something new and special to my hubby and I start goggled and got this cool and easy recipe from here, it really looks delicious and treats for chocoholic. The method is very easy and it came out very well and we both loved the taste and enjoy having it!!
Fudge is a type of Western confectionery which is usually very sweet, and extremely rich. It is made by mixing Condensed milk, butter, and chocolate chips and heating it to the soft stage and then beating the mixture while it cools so that it acquires a smooth, rich and creamy consistency. Let’s do the recipe…

Ingredients:

Semisweet / Dark chocolate chips – 400gms
Condensed milk – 1tin
Butter – 2 tbsp
Vanilla extract – 2 tsp
Almond – 100gm
Pistachios few

Method:
  • Toast the almonds and pistachios place them on a baking sheet and bake for about 5 to 8 minutes minutes or until the nuts are fragrant and their skins start to blister. Take care do not burn.
  • Let cool and then chop into small pieces.



  • First line the pan, bottom and sides with aluminium foil.
  • Combine the condensed milk, chocolate chips and butter in a heatproof bowl and place over a saucepan of simmering water (using double boiling method).
  • Melt the chocolate mixture, stirring frequently, making sure the mixture doesn't get too hot or the fudge may be grainy.
  • Keep stirring until the chocolate dissolves smooth and glossy and remove from heat.
  • Now add the vanilla extract and chopped nuts to this fudge and mix gently.
  • Spread this fudge into a prepared pan, cover with plastic or aluminum foil sheet and smoothing the top with offset spatula and let stands at room temperature until cool (this can take several hours).
  • Then carefully remove the fudge from the pan by lifting the edges of the foil.
Cut the fudge into desire pieces and enjoy!!


Delightful Chocolate Almond Fudge is ready…

Note:

  • Keep refrigerated and use it for several days or freeze, well wrapped, for several months.
  • Let thaw at room temperature, unwrapped, for a few hours before serving.
  • You could substitude any nuts or dry fruits for almonds.
