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
Check out these previously posted edible gift recipes for further ideas https://katielovescooking.wordpress.com/category/edible-gifts/. And finally, here is the chocolate walnut fudge recipe:
Can condensed milk
150g milk chocolate chips or bar, broken in to pieces
300g dark chocolate chips or bar, broken in to pieces
150g walnut pieces
1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
Heat the condensed milk on a low heat and then stir in the chocolate. Once melted add the walnut pieces, salt and vanilla essence. Stir it all together and then fill a tin foil lined smallish baking tray with the mixture. Put in the fridge to set for at least 3 hours then turn it out and cut it in to pieces. Can keep for up to three weeks in an airtight container.

FYI I reversed the dark & milk choc ratios to make the a bit sweeter for kids – went down very nicely!
Good tips cheers xx
