  • 3 cups (18oz/510g) bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1 can (14oz/395g) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup (2oz/57g) butter
  • 1 orange, zest
  • 2 tablespoons orange liquor, optional
  1. Butter and line an 8X8 inch pan with parchment paper, set aside.

  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl add the chocolate, sweetened condensed milk, and butter. Microwave for 2 minutes or until the chocolate is just melted. This timing is a based on my microwave which is 1200 Watts, so your cook time may very. (You can also make the fudge over a bain-marie) 

  3. Once melted, stir to combine and whisk in the orange liquor and zest. Do not be tempted to over-mix the fudge as this can cause it to separate. 

  4. Transfer the fudge to the prepared tin, smooth out the top then garnish more orange zest.

  5. Allow to set in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours to overnight. 

  6. Remove from the fridge and cut into 16 squares. Cover and store in an airtight container for up to 4 weeks.
