RECIPE: CHOCOLATE PEPPERMINT FUDGE
1 tin condensed milk
1 packet (290g) dark chocolate melts
1 teaspoon peppermint essence
Sprinkles to decorate
Melt the chocolate and condensed milk together on a low heat using a double boiler.
Add the peppermint essence and stir thoroughly until smooth.
Once all the chocolate has melted, quickly pour the mixture into a loaf tin lined with baking paper. Add the sprinkles on top to decorate.
Place the fudge in the fridge overnight to set. Once set, remove the fudge from the tin and cut into small squares.
Packaging tip: For individual treats, wrap bite-sized pieces of the fudge in baking paper and place in a jar. Wrap larger blocks in baking paper then brown paper tied up with ribbon.
