I am surely at cloud nine as I type this post, one and a half years of blogging and 200 posts, not bad right! People say ‘slow and steady wins the race’, I know I am slow and steady and I do feel happy in saying that this blog has surely won a few hearts if not many.
There’s a lot to learn and explore and I am glad to have so many friends who have now become a part of ‘my culinary journey’ at Foodelicious. It’s said that a long journey becomes easy if you have company and this journey till the 200th post would have been difficult without my blogger friends and the readers. Your mails and your comments inspire me to try new and attempt better, so please let them coming in.
I wanted to make a quick dessert as these days I tend to lose patience early, so was in no mood to make anything elaborate. I started exploring my refrigerator and landed on a pack of dark compound. Also, during Diwali I had received large packs of dry fruits as gift which I had to finish, so thought of mixing both the things and make some fudge. S, loves chocolate fudge and I surely was in a mood to pamper his sweet tooth.
I used the bitter chocolate as S loves that, one can use any chocolate of their choice to make this fudge. Please bear with my in process clicks as this process is done very quickly it surely has affected my clicks.
500gms dark Compound
a can of condensed milk
a cup and a half of chopped roasted nuts
75gms unsalted butter
1/2 vanilla essence
Grease a 7”-8” square tin.
Break the chocolate into pieces. In a sauce pan mix the chocolate, condensed milk and butter and heat on a slow flame, stirring continuously till the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth. Do not let the mixture boil.
Remove from heat and mix 3/4th of the chopped nuts quickly ( I used walnuts, almonds and cashewnuts ). Mix properly.
Pour it into the greased tin and sprinkle the remaining nuts on top. Even the top.
Refrigerate for 2-3 hours or till firm, then cut into square pieces. Makes about 25 pieces.
Store in an air tight container in a cool and dry place.
