A delicious chocolate fudge recipe. This fudge is very sweet, bursting with flavors of chocolate- not to mention, it melts in your mouth. Here's a perfect gift for Valentine's Day or Christmas- or any occasion really. And the best part? It's authentic. I got it from a 60's cookbook- so none of that added marshmallow gunk. This is pure fudge from the old times.


Granulated sugar 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Light corn syrup/Golden syrup /maple syrup / honey 1 Teaspoon
Bitter chocolate 2 Ounce (50 g)
Milk 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Salt 1 Pinch
Unsalted butter 2 Tablespoon (plus extra for greasing saucepan and baking dish)
Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon



Line a baking dish with aluminium foil and grease with butter.

Generously butter a saucepan and heat it. Combine sugar, corn syrup, chocolate, milk, salt and mix well.

Bring the mixture to boil with continuous stirring and until temperature reaches 234°F in a candy thermometer.

Turn off heat and add butter and vanilla to the mixture. Whisk the mixture vigorously and when hot pour into prepared baking dish. Ensure not to spread using spatula.

Allow to set for 20-30 minutes. Cut into desired sized pieces.



Serve and enjoy!
