Recipe by thebakinggoddess

This comes from the Nigella Lawson cookbook Nigella Express. It's such a versitile recipe and is fantastic to give as a gift. A few variations - I've added Bailey's Irish Cream to this recipe and just reduced the condensed milk a little. I've also added peppermint extract which was delicious!


  1. Put all the ingredients in a a bowl, I prefer to use a glass bowl as there's less chance of the chocolate splitting and it's easier to use in the microwave.
  2. Microwave the mixture on high for 30 seconds. Remove the bowl and give a quick stir with a metal spoon. Then return it to the microwave for another 30 seconds on high.
  3. Remove and stir until all the chocolate and butter has melted and the mixture is smooth and glossy. Pour mixture into a 20cm x 20 cm baking tin lined with foil and place in the fridge for 4 hours or until firm.
  4. When the fudge is firm, turn it out onto a chopping board and peel back the foil. Cut the fudge into small peices about 2x2cm as it's quite rich.
  5. Perfect for an after dinner treat with coffee.
