The nutty texture of this fudge coupled with the bitter-sweet taste of Dark chocolate along with a hint of sweetness from condensed milk will leave your taste buds craving for more of these babies. What I like most about this recipe is that it's incredibly healthy and it doesn't make your mouth sour because of excessive sweetness.
The after flavor is kind of bitter just like having dark chocolate. And, having the taste of chocolate in our mouth is just what we all want. Don't we? Further, Dark chocolate raises HDL and lowers LDL Cholesterol, and also reduces the risk of heart diseases. Similarly, walnut is a rich source of Antioxidant and lowers Blood Pressure.
HOW TO MAKE THESE EASY DARK CHOCOLATE WALNUT FUDGE
To get started with this recipe -
You'll need just Four ingredients which are condensed milk, dark chocolate bar, Butter and some Walnuts. These are the ingredients that are a must for all kinds of chocolate fudge.
However, when you are making some other kind of fudge then you can replace the chocolate with peanut butter if you wish. Many people prefer using a drop of vanilla extract in it.
You can also add butter while making your fudge batter. Butter will give your fudge a smoother, glossier texture and of course, it'll taste buttery. (pro tip - If you add a spoon of brown sugar, it'll balance out the bitterness of chocolate and also make the sweetness of condensed milk much more even; also your fudges will come out perfect)
So, first, grease a 20x11.5 cm baking tray with butter. Now line it with parchment paper. You can even throw in some flour over parchment paper but I don't prefer it since there would be some whiteness of the flour at the bottom of my fudge and I really prefer a dark chocolaty color. So, what I do is grease it with some more butter. Butter helps stick the parchment paper to the tray hence helping you take out your fudge without any mess.
Put a skillet over the flame and throw in a dollop of butter. Quickly throw in your chopped dark chocolate and stir. Watch the glossy chocolate play with butter in the skillet. Now, add to it a cup of chopped walnuts and give it a nice stir. At this point in time, you might throw in a cup of brown sugar (if you wish). I have used just 1/2 cup of condensed milk since I don't want my fudges to be over-sweet. Now, mix your condensed milk with chocolate and butter and stir well over low flame.
Now bring down your fudge batter to room temperature and again give it a nice stir with a silicon or wooden spatula. (This ensure your fudges are hard) Now just pour it into the baking tray and keep it in the freezer for 2 hours.
After you have done the hard part - patiently waiting for your fudges! it's time to get them out. Turn it upside down on a clean and dry plate. It should fall off without much effort. Now, pull off the parchment paper and cut out your fudges.
(Pro-Tip) At this point, I recommend using a plastic knife or a chef's knife which is dipped in warm water, wiped, and then used to smoothly cut out your fudge squares. I have used a normal kitchen knife since I didn't have one. But, I know that a plastic knife helps in the smooth cutting of your fudges and brownies.
