I know, right? Fudge. With Snickers. I remember when Snickers were Marathons and I also remember when the London Marathon was the Mars London Marathon so in honour of
me being old enough to remember old things yesterday being the day of the Marathon I came up with this little beauty.
It might also have been a day that I made a momentous decision about the marathon. And about my turning 50 in three years but I can’t possibly share that until I have
finished eating all the fudge bought some running shoes so let’s gloss over this paragraph and get back to the fudge.
We have a thing in our kitchen. A thing so glorious that I have been a tiny bit scared of it but have been quietly playing with it recently, as have the teens, whenever I get the chance. But quite frankly that isn’t often enough. Yesterday though I kept the whole afternoon clear so I could play with it. “IT” is called a Thermomix and is the stuff of legend in culinary circles. They regularly appear on Masterchef and other foodie programmes and there are reportly 15 of them in the kitchen of the Fat Duck. Newspapers and magazines rate them as “must haves” for all foodies.
Clearly I am not in a culinary circle or a foodie but when it comes to kitchen gadgetry there are certain people (yes CJ I am looking at you) that knew I would love this one more than I could possibly love an inanimate object so kept telling me I needed one. Finally last month I caved. Which led to me tweeting yesterday that this fudge made in “IT” was the greatest thing I had ever created and that INCLUDED my children.
So shall we just cut to the fudgey chase?
- 4 Snickers Bars
- 400g of Milk Chocolate
- Small tin of condensed milk
- Chop the Snickers Bars in to three and place in the Thermomix bowl and chop for 3 seconds on speed 5.
- Tip the bits (it will resemble breadcrumbs) into a bowl and set aside
- Place milk chocolate in the Thermomix bowl.
- Add the condensed milk and cook for 10 minutes at 100 degrees on speed 3.
- Pour in the reserved Snickers Bar crumble and mix for 30 seconds on reverse speed 1.
- As soon as it is ready pour the fudge into the prepared 20cm square pan. You need to be quick as it starts to set instantly
- Place in fridge for 4 hours (but preferably overnight) to set.
- Remove fudge from the fridge and cut into small pieces. Really small as it is very sweet. But oh so gorgeous
Was ever a greater fudge created? I think not.
Oh and if this wasn’t enough if you want to go all out then how about making your own Snickers? Jo has a fabulous recipe for homemade Snickers here.
