Wishing everyone a very Happy Diwali. We had gone to our hometown to celebrate Diwali with our family as it was the first major celebration after my FIL passed away. Diwali was fun as all of us were together after a long time and kids had loads of fun bursting crackers and eating sweets and savouries.
My elder son is visiting us for Diwali so food at home is cooked as per his demands, right from breakfast to dinner. In all this I managed to make this sweet to carry it for every one. It’s an amazingly tasty preparation and the orange flavour makes it even more worthy and the nuts in the fudge add a nice crunchy bite .
The sweet is extremely easy to make and gets done in a matter of few minutes if you have all the ingredients in hand. S, simply loved it and I cut the fudge into bite size cubes as it’s easy to serve and eat.
500gms dark chocolate chopped
400gms condensed milk
50gms white butter
1/2tsp vanilla essence
zest of one orange
about 2 cups of roasted and chopped nuts (cashewnuts, hazelnuts, walnuts, pistachios, almonds)
In a pan mix chocolate and condensed milk, cook on low flame till the chocolate melts. Ensure that no point the mixture boils.
Add the zest, essence, all the nuts and mix thoroughly. As the mixture thickens, switch off the gas.
Grease a 15” by 10” plate and pour the chocolate mixture into it.
Refrigerate it for about 2-3 hours and then cut into 1” cubes.
These can be wrapped in colourful wrapping papers and gifted.
