A big hello and I’m welcoming myself back to the world of blogging after a fairly long break. Every couple of years I visit my folks and recharge myself with their pampering and come back completely rejeuvenated. I day dream filled with longing memories of going on vacation again only to be shaken by the hustle and bustle of my daily routine which keeps me running on my toes from morning to night.


My only seclude is getting to blog again and trying new recipes that make my kids eyes sparkle with excitement to their favorite dishes. That is one of the reasons to sign up for Kid’s Delight – Chocolate theme for this month’s Blogging Marathon. I haven’t tried making fudge before mistaking them for elaborate desserts until I saw this recipe in a cookbook by Tarla Dalal and was awe struck by its simplicity in making yet totally devouring. If you would like to make ‘good’ use of 15 minutes of your day then follow along the recipe below and you won’t be disappointed.




Prep Time: 5 mins

Cooking Time: 15 mins

Serves: 4


Sweetened Condensed Milk — 1/2 can(200 grams)

Cocoa Powder — 1/3 cup

Vanilla Essence — 1/2 tsp

All Purpose Flour (Maida) — 1 Tbsp

Butter — 1/2 cup (60 grams)

Chopped Roasted Almonds — 1/2 cup

Oil for greasing


1. In a heavy bottomed sauce pan, combine sweetened condensed milk, cocoa powder, vanilla essence, all purpose flour, butter. Mix well making sure there are no lumps. Cook over a medium flame, stirring continuously.


2. Cook till the mixture thickens and starts leaving the sides of the pan (approximately 10 minutes).

3. Add chopped almonds to the mixture and mix well.

4. Grease a 4″x 4″ (100mm x 100mm) square pan. Pour the mixture in to the pan and allow it to set at room temperature.


5. Cut in to pieces and store in air tight container.



1. I didn’t have a 4″ x 4″ square pan so I added a barrier using aluminum foil by folding them multiple times.

2. Almonds can be substituted with walnuts or cashewnuts.

  16. I made this recipe and it did not harden. The taste is delicious but the fudge did not harden at all. What did Ido wrong? Thank you

    • Mau: Thanks for trying the recipe. I think either the fudge is not cooked enough (meaning the fudge has to be cooked till the mixture leaves the side of the pan) or my question to you would be if you used sweetened condensed milk or evaporated milk? They both are not the same but it’s quite common to make a mistake there. Also what is the consistency of your fudge? If it is thick but just not setting, try refrigerating. Do let me know if you need any more help. Thanks
