Last year we had some chocolate left after Easter and made some cornflake buns this year we decided to use what we had left to make mars bar fudge.
It is really simple and extremely tasty, it wont be hanging around in our house long!
-400g milk chocolate
-1 can of condensed milk
-3 Mars bars
You will also need
-Baking tray with high sides, baking paper & saucepan
-Break up the chocolate and put it into the saucepan along with the condensed milk.
-Heat over a low heat until it has all melted.
-Take it off the heat & leave to cool for 15 minutes
-While its cooling chop up the mars bars into slices, make sure to keep one mars bar separate.
-Put the baking paper into the baking tray to make it easier to take out after its all cooled.
-Once cooled add two of the chopped mars bars into the mixture and stir.
-After stirring empty out the mixture into the baking tray and spread it out evenly.
-Add the final sliced mars bar to the top,
Once cooled lift it out and slice it up then enjoy!

I can’t quite believe that in only four days my little princess will be turning Four! It seems like only yesterdy she was a tiny little baby that needed every single thing done for her! She was a lovely litle 7.5lbs when she was born, and just stayed so tiny! She is still only 28lbs.. which is pretty tiny for four year olds! Considering that her ten month old baby brother is 21lbs! Soon he will be bigger than her!
She is such a kind hearted little soul! She adores her little brother and is constantly hugging & kissing him (not that he is a big fan of it!) and giving him toys! Obviously she has bad days and just doesn;t want him to touch any of her things.. but honestly, I don’t blame her! He isn’t the most light handed of children! Though she is also a very energetic little one and constantly wants to be on the move and bein filled full with new information! Lots of people find this hard to understand and think that she is being bold etc whenever she can’t sit still, is running circles, asking 1001 questions whnever you are trying to talk to someone. I love how inqusiive she is, how willing to learn, how egar to please she is but I can understand why people find it hard to understand sometimes, heck sometimes I wish she wuld just sit still for 10 minuites and not ask me questions about every little thing that happens! One day I said to her “Why do you ask so many questions!?!” and she replied with “Because I am inquisitive mummy”… first thing is first, where did she learn/hear that word? I don’t think I have ever used it in my life! Yet my three year old daughter can pluck this word from god knows where, put it in a scentence and use it properly! Help!?! In a few years time if she keeps up like this I will need a translator to explain to me what all these words mean!
I am still in denial that she is going to be four… and in a very girly way, she is having a man come to her party with snakes,lizards,tarantulas, owls etc! True her style ;] She just loves going out in the garden and hunting out bugs! Reminding her to keep them ouside sometimes is a bit of a task!
Now to think of some fun party games for them to do after they have played with all these animals! I’ll let you know how it goes! Do you find they grow up far to quick?
Yes, I know my most recent blog was one about fudge but after making that simple fudge I remembered the fudge that I made last Christmas so I thought I would share it with you too! This fudge is pretty simple to make too, but not quite as simple as the last one! No thermometer or anything though so us folk without one can make this too! =D
- 350g Icing Sugar
- 75g Unsalted Butter
- 4 Teaspoons Milk
- 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
- 75g Pink & White Marshmallows or Small Ones!
- Small Baking Tray
- Baking Paper
- Line the Baking Tray with the baking paper
- Use a sieve sift the icing sugar into large bowl and make a hollow in the middle
- Put the butter,milk and vanilla essence into a small pan. If you have used large marshmallows cut them in half! If you have used the little ones like me, then you can just put them in!
- Gently heat the marshmallows etc in the pan and stir the mixture every so often untill it has all melted!
- Pour the mixture into the hollow of the icing sugar and then quickly mix it all together untill it goes smooth!
- Pour the mixture into your baking tray and spread it out so it is all flat
- Put the sprinkles on top! Make sure you push these into the fudge so they they will stay there!
- Place it in the fridge for a few hours
- Take it out an cut it up… Enjoy!
Now to get back to a few more “normal” posts in the next few days! If you try this let me know how it turns out and what you think! I really enjoy it and have made it for my little girls party!
I saw a video of someone making this fudge online and could not believe how simple it was! I was sure it wasn’t going to taste as great as it did but it was super fantastic so had to share it with you all!
- 1 tin of condensed Milk
- 400 grams of chocolate
- baking tray to put it in (mine was 9″x9″)
- baking paper
Seriously that is all the ingredients you need!
- Line your baking tray with baking paper
- Put all of the ingredients in a bowl
- Mix them all up and put it in the microwave on high for 1 minuite .. if the chocolate doesn’t seem melted enough put it in for another 30 seconds. I have a 800watt microwave and went for 1min30 and it was perfect!
- Pour into the baking tray lined with baking paper and put it in the fridge for 4-5 hours .. the longer the better!
- Take it out and lift the fudge block out of the baking tray using the baking paper, then place on a plate upside down and peal off the baking paper (slow and steady then comes off all in one go!)
- Cut it up into squares with a sharpish knife and enjoy!
It is simply delicious and so super easy to do! Great for parties, playdates .. anything!
Let me know if you try it and what you think!
