Condensed milk. The key yummy ingredient in my favourite recipe, Millionaire's shortbread. I decided to have a bit of a scout around Pinterest and see where the evening took me and I low and behold I stumbled across a recipe to make 'fudge' the easy way utilising my can of milk. Huzzah!
I found this beautiful recipe to make sprinkle laden white chocolate fudge and couldn't resist (recipe repeated below). The recipe calls for one x 14ounce can of condensed milk which just so happens to be 397g or 1 x can of carnation milk and I have bags of callebaut chocolate on hand alongside my homemade vanilla extract and within minutes (with minimal effort on my part) I was looking at a 8" x 8" tin filled with brightly speckled white chocolate fudge destined for the fridge.

Both batches worked a treat and definitely had the fudgey consistency I craved. They did lack the caramelly flavour that I associate with 'proper' fudge but they're a great no-bake recipe to make with the kids or as an addition to your dessert table. I think I need to try and make a batch with milk chocolate before I can give my final verdict but I will say both recipes are very rich and my kids love them so I wouldn't hesitate to make them again.
