A little something sweet! :)

I've been meaning to get on here and post for the past few days but things have been a little busy with getting ready to head home for the holidays, and even though I get to see them all in three days, I have been feeling a bit down and missing my family lots, so it has been hard to focus and think of some fun things to write about. However, I've had a nice warm bowl of pastina, just like my Nanna and Grandad make it, and I am sitting by the tree having had a productive day...a productive day that produced yummy chocolate fudge, and with that turning out rather heavenly, I'm back in the Christmassy spirit. :p (and did I mention I get to see my family in 3 days? :p)

My sister, Kelly, and I have made fudge once or twice before and it was always a big hit with our friends. I couldn't put my finger on that recipe so I searched on Pinterest to see what I could find. I found one that came from realmomkitchen.com and thought I would give that one a whirl. I'm so happy I did, it turned out scrumptious and it was so very easy and quick to make. I'm already thinking of whipping up batches next year for gifts or trying it out when I get home this weekend so my family can try it. :)

What you will need:

1 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk.
1 12oz bag of chocolate chips. (the actually recipe called for semi sweet, I used milk chocolate)
1 cup of white chocolate chips. (here the recipe said milk chocolate :p)
1/4 cup of butter
1tsp vanilla.

Mix the condensed milk, chocolate chips and butter together in a pan over a low heat until combined and smooth. Once everything has melted and come together nicely, add the vanilla and pour into baking pan. Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours to set.

The recipe calls for a 9 x 9 baking pan, though I just used a biscuit tin and lined it with wax paper. I think my tin was smaller but it worked just fine! :)

I used milk chocolate chips and white chocolate chips so my version is probably a touch sweeter than the original, I just happened to have those chocolate chips in, but it turned out delicious and creamy and chocolatey and so so good. I'm very excited to try out different flavours and experiment with the likes of peppermint and dark chocolate chips! :) Furthermore, I think next time I might also try mixing the vanilla in with the mixture while its on the heat, as I'm not always a fan of the vanilla essence when its not cooked.

Enjoy! :)

Do you like how the tree has to be the back ground in every picture now?!! :p I love my Christmas tree!!!! <3

Happy baking!

Love Lulu. xx
