Now that I’m on the wrong side of thirty (a fact I’m still struggling to come to terms with!), regular appointments to get my hair coloured have become necessary. It’s not all bad, and I’m certainly not complaining. It’s a great opportunity to sneak out of the house for a few hours by myself and sit back and relax with a few trashy magazines and a coffee and enjoy some peace and quiet – I’m currently listening to my boys screaming while my husband is trying to give them a bath!
It was while flipping through one of the weekly women’s mags and catching up on all the Kardashian and other celeb goss, that I came across this recipe for Malteser Fudge. I knew that I just HAD to make it, so I subtly took a photo of the recipe on my phone and promised myself I would be making this the next day.
I know I’ve said it before, but it REALLY doesn’t get much easier than this. With just four ingredients, this is an incredibly easy recipe to put together. I melted the chocolate and milk in the microwave just because I’m lazy, however if you prefer you could also melt these ingredients in a bowl placed over a pot of boiling water – just choose which ever method you prefer.
This is a very rich fudge, and you really only need a small slice – or two! Now that the party season is upon us (is it just me or does it seem to start earlier each year?), this would be the perfect dessert to take along to your next BBQ, and I’m also thinking it would be a great Christmas gift for Teachers, Friends and Family.
