Macadamia and white chocolate fudge – the worlds easiest present!

Making people home-made Christmas gifts always show them that you really care and that you have given them a little bit of thought over the hectic Christmas period. The problem is some home-made treats and gifts can be very time consuming – step in the whiskey and orange marmalade which basically took me 2 days! However, whipping up a batch of fudge is here to answer all your prayers and home-made gift needs! It’s super easy, super tasty and it really is a lush little gift!

It can also save you a few pennies because whipping up a batch of this is usually cheaper than having to splash out on shop bought box of chocolates! This year I’m giving these out to all of the wonderful NHS staff who have helped me over the past 2 years.

This recipe has been adapted from Nigella Lawson’s Chocolate pistaisho fudge and a Channel 4 Food recipe for Macadamia and white chocolate fudge. Basically it is very adaptable and you can use what you have lying around!

Ingredients

1 can of condensed milk (397g)

500g white chocolate, chopped up

100g macadamia nuts

zest of 1 lime, finely grated

pinch of salt

Please note I tripled this recipe so I ended up with LOADS, but above is the recipe for one normal sized batch.

Method

Place your nuts into a freezer bag and bash them with a rolling pin or a rolling pin like object! Break them up so you have a nice variety of large bit and small bits! (I went for mainly large bits)

Place the chopped chocolate, condensed milk and salt into a heavy-based pan and stir over a low heat until everything is melted and well combined.

Take off the heat, add the nuts and zest and mix well.

Pour the mixture into an 18cm tray, which has been lined with baking paper, or a disposable foil tray. Smooth the top with a wet palette knife.

Let the fudge cool on the side, then pop in to fridge until set. I found leaving it overnight was best.

Once set cut into small pieces and try not to eat it all before you bag it up as gifts!
