If you love fudge you will LOVE this salted caramel Baileys chocolate fudge.
So there was a thing on Twitter, as there often is. A thing involving Henley Literary Festival earlier this week. A thing with Emma Freud who was interviewing Dawn O’Porter off the telly. And a thing about Emma having a thing about bring cakes to events. Last year the thing was cronuts as they were the new big thing. This year’s thing for Emma was advocaat custard. Custard with advocaat. Imagine that!! And Jenny brought cookies, and Faith brought tequila cookies.
I offered to take a thing. And that thing was Baileys fudge. Never made it before but how hard can it be, Pinterest after all is full of easy fudge recipes. Turns out it is dead simple as it happens. And a little bit more special when you realise that there is a Baileys Salted Caramel that you can use instead of ordinary Baileys.
- 1 can of condensed milk (405g)
- 500g dark chocolate
- 75g butter
- ¼ cup of Baileys salted Caramel. You could use Amaretto though, or Tia Maria
- Line a square cake tin with greaseproof paper, including up the sides.
- Melt in a bowl over a pan of boiling water the butter, the chocolate and the milk, stirring constantly
- Remove from the heat
- Add the Baileys
- Beat with an electric mixer until it goes smooth and shiny
- Spoon into the tin and smooth it out
- Place somewhere to cool until set
And I have to say it was pretty damned fine. So fine that even Jonnie who said “nah, I don’t like fudge” ate a whole piece. Possibly because he didn’t know I had made it.
But try, tis lush!
I do suggest keeping the pieces small though as it is a huge hit of sugar. Though you could wash it down with something like this mulled cider if you really fancied a bigger bit.
