5 Minute Chocolate Fudge

by Bec

Ingredients:
3 cups chocolate chips (if you can’t find some good quality chocolate chips, just chop up some chocolate)
14 ounces (400 grams) fat-free sweetened condensed milk
Dash salt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract (or peppermint extract for Chocolate Mint Fudge)
Optional Mix-ins to personalize your fudge, such as:
For Rocky Road Fudge: 1 1/4 cups miniature marshmallows + 1 cup walnut pieces.
For German Chocolate Cake Fudge: 1 cup flaked or shredded coconut + 1 cup pecan pieces.
For Peppermint Stick Fudge: 1 cup crunched-up candy canes or any hard mint lollies.
For Peanut Butter Fudge: 2/3 cup of peanuts. 1/3 cup of peanut butter
Preparation:
Line a square baking dish with foil.
Add chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and dash salt to a microwave-safe bowl and stir to blend (you can put it in a saucepan to slowly heat it on the stove if you prefer, just don’t let the chocolate burn).
Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir and microwave 1 minute more. Stir until chocolate chips are completely melted and a smooth mixture has formed.
Stir in any mix-ins you’re using to personalize your fudge (including vanilla extract) and spoon into prepared baking dish.
Cover and chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or until firm. Pull foil out of baking dish so you can easily cut fudge into squares (cut about 7 columns vertically, then horizontally).
This fudge is absolutely delicious

This is the most simple chocolate cake in the world, made just for one person.
I make it for a quick dessert or when I need chocolate
You’ll need:
4 Table spoons of Self-Raising flour
4 Tablespoons of Sugar
2 Tablespoons of cocoa
1 Egg
3 Tablespoons of Milk
3 Tablespoons of Vegetable Oil
3 Tablespoons of Chocolate Chips (optional)
1 Coffee Mug
Here’s what you do:
1. Put all the dry ingredients into the mug and mix well
2. Crack the egg and add it to the mug. Be sure to mix it well to avoid any pockets of flour in the corner.
3. Pour in the milk and oil, mix well.
4. Add the chocolate chips if you’re using them and a splash of vanilla essence if you like.
5. Put the mug into the microwave and cook for 3 minutes on maximum power (microwaves will differ in heat)
6. Wait until the cake stops rising and sets in the mug
7. Run a knife around the side of the mug and tip the warm cake out onto a plate.
Now eat!
For an extra treat, drizzle some chocolate sauce over the cake.
