Author Lucy Mathieson

Ingredients

  • 300 g sweetened condensed milk
  • 400 g dark chocolate, broken into chunks (see notes)
  • 75 g butter
  • 1/4 cup Baileys Irish Cream

Instructions

  1. Grease and line a 20cm X 20cm square cake tin with baking paper and set aside. 

  2. Place the sweetened condensed milk, dark chocolate and butter into a microwave-safe bowl. Melt on 50% power for 6-8 minutes (stirring every 2 minutes) until melted. 

  3. Stir through the Baileys Irish Cream. 

  4. Spread the fudge mixture into the prepared tin and place into the fridge for 3-4 hours or until set, before cutting into pieces. 

Recipe Notes

The higher the cocoa % in the dark chocolate, the harder the fudge will set. 

If using dark chocolate melts, this will set to a soft fudge consistency. If using a high cocoa % dark chocolate, it will set slightly firmer. 

As this fudge is soft, it needs to be kept in the fridge. 

This Baileys fudge can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.

    Can v make this without baileys??

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      The Baileys is pretty essential to this recipe. xx

      1. Catherine says:

        What chocolate do I use is it just cooking chocolate thanks

        1. Lucy Mathieson says:

          Hi Catherine, yes that’s fine! xx

    2. Susan says:

      Sure you can. You can find Irish Cream in the Cream section. Then it will be non-alcholic fudge but still Irish Cream.

  2. Lynda Troup says:

    Hi Lucy
    I definitely didn’t do anything wrong with this recipe but I have done it twice and both times it has come out the same where I cannot even scrape it off the baking paper. It is like slightly firm ganache. I am freezing this last lot to see if that makes a difference. I know that you said the higher content of cocoa in the chocolate makes a difference so I used 70% cadbury’s baking chocolate. Where did I go wrong? Regards, Lynda.

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Lynda, it is a very soft fudge so I don’t think you’re doing anything wrong! Try reducing the amount of condensed milk slightly. xx

  3. Katharina says:

    I’m just eating one of them. I actually made them for my colleagues at work as I had been sick last week and only wanted to try one and now I can hardly stop. Absolutely great! Greetings from Germany

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Katharina, I’m so glad you’re enjoying it! Hope you’re feeling much better! xx

  4. Jan says:

    Can this be made using other liqueurs ?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Absolutely!!

  5. Julie says:

    I have made the salted caramel fudge and it turned out great i would like to make a plain choc one without the alcohol do you have a recipe for this Regards Julie.

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Julie, this is a similar one made in the microwave (but a chocolate version with Tim Tams!): https://bakeplaysmile.com/5-minute-microwave-tim-tam-fudge/

  6. Paula Silvester says:

    Is there no sugar in this Baileys recipe? There was so much in the caramel fudge I am surprised there isn’t any in this

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Paula, yes that’s right – they are very different recipes, textures and flavours. xx

  7. Robin says:

    Is there a way to make this with chocolate chips instead of dark chocolate??

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Robin, hmm chocolate chips dont melt as well as chocolate melts so I dont think your final texture would be as nice.. but feel free to experiment!! xx
