This is the other fudge recipe I made with Aidan and his friends last w/e for their sweet making party. This is very much another safe fudge recipe to do with children and was a little on the sticky and sweet side. However all of it was eagerly eaten by the teens. I would make it again with younger children but I’d get teens to do something more challenging next time. I’ve adjusted the quantities slightly as I thought there were too many marshmallows. We made it without walnuts as a couple of the boys weren’t keen on walnuts. Since it needed something else on other than marshmallows I put on the white chocolate chips and sprinkled on some chewable silver balls. (I came across the chewable silver balls in the baking section of my local co-op, for reasons I don’t understand kids & teens love silver balls on cakes & ice cream etc but they are usually so hard I worry about impact on teeth. Hard silver balls would definitely not work on fudge)
- 1/2 tsp Vegetable oils
- 150g mini marshmallows
- 250g plain chocolate chips
- 1 can (430ml approx) condensed milk
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 250g chopped walnuts (optional)
- 100g white chocolate chips (optional)
- (chewable) Silver balls (optional)
- Line a 20cm baking tin with tin foil, use some kitchen towel to rub with oil
- Put chocolate chips and condensed milk in a bowl and microwave on high for 1 minute. Then stir, if not melted return bowl to microwave for another 30 secs 1 or 2 more times stirring each time (be care not to get the chocolate too hot).
- Gently stir the vanilla essence, most of the marshmallows and walnuts into the chocolate mixture
- Scape the chocolate mixture into the prepared baking pan and smooth the top
- Sprinkle fuge with remaining marshmallows, white chocolate chips and silver balls if using and press down gently.
- Put in fridge for an hour
- Lift foil to remove fudge from tin, peel away foil and cut into pieces.
