You can whip up this quick and easy chocolate biscuit fudge in 15 minutes. Skip the dark chocolate or substitute it with milk chocolate if you don’t want it too chocolaty.
Makes: 16 pieces
38 Marie biscuits
40 grams Lindt 70% Dark Chocolate
¼ cup butter
½ cup cocoa powder
1 can condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla essence
¼ tsp. salt
Crush the Marie biscuits; you don't have to crush them to fine little pieces, just crush them enough so that there are not too many large chunks.
Chop the chocolate into chunks.
Coat the tray or container you are going to use for setting the fudge with a little bit of butter or oil. Alternately you can line it with baking paper too. (We made ours in an 8 inch square container. Whatever container you use, just put in the mixture to a height of around 1 inch and it's going to turn out fine.)
In a large saucepan melt the butter over low heat.
Add the condensed milk, cocoa powder, vanilla essence, salt, and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on low heat while stirring, so that the mixture becomes smooth.
Add the dark chocolate and stir until dissolved.
To the mixture, add the biscuits and stir well to combine.
Switch off the heat and pour the mixture into the container that you prepared. You'll need to move a bit faster at this stage as the mixture would begin to set.
Smooth the top of the mixture with the back of a spoon and leave it in the fridge, covered, for 2 hours.
