Easy Choc Fudge

Preparation Time: 5 mins plus 1 hour chilling time
Cooking Time: 10 mins
Serves: 36 squares

100g unsalted butter, chopped
395g can sweetened condensed milk
200g dark brown sugar
3 tbl spoons golden syrup
170g dark chocolate, chopped
2 tsp vanilla bean paste

Line a 17 x 27cm slice tin with baking paper.
Put butter, condensed milk, sugar and syrup into a large microwave-safe bowl and stir to combine.
Cook on medium-high/75% for about 7 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes.

Add dark chocolate and vanilla paste.
Stir to combine and then beat, either using a wooden spoon or electric mixer, until chocolate is melted and mixture is glossy.
Spoon mixture into prepared tin and use a palette knife to smooth surface evenly.
Set aside to cool.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm.
Cut into 36 spares to serve.

N.B. I sprinkle the top with ¾ cup of unsalted mixed nuts over the fudge before chilling.

To cut the slice into smooth, clean squares, dip a large knife into hot water in between each cut.
