Chocolate Fudge

- makes 1 kg

Ingredients :
Unsweetened cooking chocolate - 250 gm
Water - 1/4 cup
Condensed milk - 3 tins
Sugar - 2 & 1/2 cups
Salt - 1/4 tsp

Method :
  1. Boil water in a double boiler or a vessel. When the water starts boiling, lower the flame to simmer, place the saucepan with the chocolate over the water and melt it. Remove when melted and stir with a spoon vigourously.
  2. Add condensed milk, sugar and salt to the melted chocolate. Place over moderate heat and stir continuously until the mixture comes to a boil. Continue stirring till a candy thermometer registers 120 degrees C or a soft ball.
  3. Remove from heat. Add butter and vanilla essence.

  5. When it loses its gloss, turn fudge onto a lightly buttered pan. Spread evenly with a spatula.
  6. Allow the fudge to cool before cutting into squares.
