Wow! This is my last Christmas recipe for 2015!!! I can’t believe it. While it feels like I’ve been making Christmassy foods for months now, the big day has still somehow managed to sneak up on me. Does that happen to you too?

Unlike a lot of fudge recipes, there’s no mucking around with glucose syrup or anything tricky like that. You literally just melt the milk chocolate, sweetened condensed milk and butter in the microwave. Stir through the yummy rocky road ingredients and mix together. Pour it into a prepared tin and then wait (very impatiently!) for it to set. Honestly, it doesn’t get any simpler than that.

I always make about a zillion batches (or at least it feels that way) of rocky road at Christmas, so this fudge is the perfect change. It still has the same amazing rocky road flavours, but with a little bit of a difference. And really, who can resist a little slice of fudge??

  1. I rarely make fudge because of all the boiling to the temperature and beating until my hands are sore. Your fudge is calling my name though – how easy!

    Merry Christmas!!

    Can this fudge be frozen

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Sue, if you wrap it in greaseproof paper, then again in foil and then place it into an airtight container, it can be frozen. 🙂
