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 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!!
