Making Almond Fudge In The Microwave

Yesterday I went for a long walk, along with Luke and Fudge, the dogs. We set out in bright sunlight, but returned in bitter cold weather that had all three of us dashing for the heater. Such is the weather here in Hondeklipbaai on the West Coast. Anyway, all the way home, as I was freezing, I kept thinking how nice it would be to have something sweet. And all this time I had Fudge, the dog, in my sight. It was a small leap to decide to make fudge as soon as I got home. But this is not the time to do it on the stove top. No! It was time for the quick and easy microwave recipe that everyone is making these days. I added a little twist by adding some almond flakes. If you do not have this recipe yet, then today's blog is for you.

This is Fudge, shivering on the couch after our walk.

You will need: 1/2 cup (125 ml) almond flakes (optional), 1 tin of condensed milk, 2 cups (500 ml) castor sugar (replace with white sugar if you don't have castor sugar), 125 g (125 ml) margarine/butter, and a teaspoonful (5 ml) vanilla essence.

Aside from the vanilla, add everything to a large microwavable glass bowl.

Stir well. To prevent the fudge from boiling over, smear some butter/margarine around the top rim of the glass bowl. (I forgot and had to clean up!)

Spray a flat dish with non-stick spray. You will pour the hot fudge into this afterwards.

Microwave the fudge for 10 minutes. Stop the microwave 2-4 times in between to give the mixture a stir and continue to microwave.

Remove from the microwave and add the ml vanilla essence.

Stir well.

Pour into your prepared dish and allow to cool.

Cut into squares when cool to the touch.

I should have left it to cool a little longer, but by now couldn't wait any longer. Enjoy!
