Every Christmas for as long as I can remember I have received a Terry’s Chocolate Orange. It is a chocolate which makes me think of Christmas because of this! I have fond memories of trying to break each one open by banging them down hard on my bedside table, to open them up and then devour the delicious chocolate orange segments.
As much as I love eating it as it is, straight from the orange foil wrapper, I thought it would make great fudge which, in turn, would make a great gift for those chocolate orange lovers among us. With Father’s Day this Sunday, this quick and yummy fudge would make a lovely homemade gift for you and your children to make for the special man in their life.
It really is easy and only contains 3 ingredients – yaaay 🙂
Here is how you can mak a batch yourself.
- 1/2 can of condensed milk
- 1 chocolate orange, broken up into segments
- 5g unsalted butter
- Line a 1 x 1lb loaf tin with parchment paper
- Place the chocolate orange segments, with the butter and the condensed milk into a non stick pan Over a moderate heat melt the ingredients while stirring occasionally
- Taking care not to over cook the mixture, remove from the heat as soon as it is all melted together and then stir to make a smooth and glossy sauce
- Pour into the lined dish and put into the refrigerator and chill for about 8 hours or over night as I did
- When ready to use, simply peel off the parchment paper and cut into bite sized squares. The ‘fudge’ is very sticky and gooey so take care when cutting. I dipped my knife into hot water to make the slicing and cutting easier.
- This quantity makes approximately 20 pieces. It needs to be kept in a sealed tub (use parchment paper to stop the fudge squares from sticking to one another) in the fridge to keep its shape, and should last for a week or so.
It tastes really very nice indeed! It is just like a soft and gooey chocolate orange really. Please keep it somewhere cool though…if it lasts that long of course!
I was sent a Terry’s Chocolate Orange for the purpose of a review.
