Everyone loves chocolate fudge, and my fondest memories of fudge are of those from Lonavala, a tiny hill station in west India. No one visiting this place can leave without buying a generous amount of Lonavala's famous chocolate fudge!

Wonderful and yummy! I used 3/4 cup of chopped walnuts (= to 100gms) and 1/3 cup of butter(= to 50gms). We went for a dinner party tonight and I made this for our friends. Everyone loved it, infact, they've asked for the recipe too:) Thanks Anu, I loved it too.

found this recipe while browsing 5 ingredients or less. Since my daughter brought home a 4# bag of chopped peanuts and I had all the ingredients this was a good opportunity to whittle that bag of peanuts down. This recipe is very simple and has the old fashioned taste of hershey's cocoa fudge with less hassle. I didn't have a thick bottom saucepan so I was extremely cautious about the heat on my electric stove. Consequently it took me longer than 15 minutes for the fudge to pull away from the pan. More like 15 minutes from the simmering point. But no matter this fudge is very good, easy and a recipe that will give consistent results.
