This was my friend Anna's "secret recipe" for years before she finally revealed all! She used to make it every birthday/Christmas/holiday for all our friends. It's so easy to make a really yummy. Great for pot luck dinners or parties. This is the basic recipe but you add all sorts of things to it - dried fruit, nuts, marshmallows, or cherries work well too.
- 12 ounces plain dark chocolate (I actually use half plain and half milk)
- 4 ounces butter
- 14 ounces condensed milk
- 8 ounces digestive biscuits (broken)
- Line a cake tin with clingfilm/greaseproof paper. I vary the tin depending on the event - a loaf-style cake is better for home use, cookie trays are easier for slicing up for a pot luck, or a regular round cake tin is fine if you're using the cake for a birthday.
- Melt the chocolate and butter in a large heatproof bowl (either over a pan of simmering water, or you can nuke it in the microwave in 10-second bursts).
- Pour the condensed milk into the chocolate and butter mixture and beat together until creamy.
- Add the broken biscuits and mix well.
- Pour the mixture into the cake tin and press it well into the corners.
- Leave to cool a little then refrigerate until set (it usually takes at least 2 hours depending on how cold your fridge is).
The easiest and most amazing cake. Used this as our second Birthday cake and everybody loved it. I left my biscuits in quite large peices and it looked great on the side TY for a hit Wendy & Bob
This is just how our neighbour use to make their fudge. A great recipe for little helpers to make. My 3 year old was so proud of herself to think that *she* made this. I used the microwave to zap the chocolate and butter together and added a good handful of sultanas. Fabulous no cook fudge.
Awesome little treat. I scaled this down a whole lot and used a mixture of shortbread and graham crackers broken up since I cant find digestive biscuits here. Took about 3 hours to firm up completly. I uses a mixture of chocolate too. Excellent dessert!
