This is my favourite, go to sweet treat, until now a closely guarded secret but the time has come to pass on this so easy, quick to make, rich treat.
I was given this recipe by a family at school some 12 years ago so do not know the original source to acknowledge.
Over the years, I have been asked to make this for parties, 21sts, wedding & engagements by many of the young people at church.
It is so easy to make, I only use one dish for the fudge base & one for the chocolate topping.
I melt the choc & butter in a microwave proof bowl, large enough that I can then add the other ingredients to same bowl. I use dark cooking choc for the base.
Melt choc & butter, then add in vanilla, eggs & castor sugar. Then add in plain four & stir well.
Pour into a lined lamington sized tin & bake for approx 20 mins - time can vary depending on oven, also if you prefer a soft, gooey fudge, only cook for the 20 minutes. If you like your fudge a bit more crunchy, cook a few minutes longer.
As soon as slice comes out of oven, melt the milk choc in a microwave proof bowl or jug then spread over slice. *Original recipe used 250g milk choc for topping - in those days Cadbury choc was that size. A 200g block of milk choc is sufficient for topping & cooking choc can be used.
Coll in tin, then allow to set in fridge. Remove from fridge and allow to sit for at least 1/2 hour before cutting into small pieces (trust me, it's very rich only cut small pieces). If you try to cut as soon as you take out of the fridge, the chocolate will crack & break.
