Recipe: Festive chocolate fudge

I’m a bit of an early bird, and love getting ready for Christmas weeks (and even months in advance). I must admit that I started my Christmas shopping this weekend! This festive inspired recipe is the perfect treat to give away as a quick and simple present that doesn’t cost the earth. Even better is that the most cooking required is using a microwave! Wrap your fudge pieces in cellophane and ribbon or homemade boxes to place under the tree. They are so delicious you will have everyone fooled as to how quick and simple they are to make.


  • 250g dark chocolate
  • 400g can condensed milk
  • 120g mixed dried fruit and nuts
  • Glace cherries to top


  1. In a large microwaveable bowl, melt the chocolate and condensed milk for around 4 minutes, making sure to check regularly
  2. Once melted, stir vigorously to combine and then add fruit and nuts
  3. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and pour the mixture into the tray
  4. Lightly draw lines on the mixture to show pieces and add a cherry on top of each
  5. Refrigerate to set and then cut along the lines to serve
