Fancy impressing friends and family with an edible gift, suggested by my friend Paul?  This delicious chocolate walnut fudge takes just 10 minutes to prepare plus approximately 3 hours to set in the fridge.  It looks quite professional presented in a box, such as these ones from the brilliant Hobbycraft shop http://direct.hobbycraft.co.uk/products-Nicole-Crafts-Sweet-Treat-Boxes-3pcs_317120.htm along with one of these gingham labels http://direct.hobbycraft.co.uk/products-Self-Adhesive-Preserve-Labels_333354.htm
