This dreamy, creamy, no-bake and extremely easy to make fudge is a strong contender on the “to make” list of the year. Dark Chocolate, Baileys and crisp Maltesers create the ultimate Christmas (and all-season) combo.

Prep:
20 min + chilling
Serves:
24

Ingredients

  1. 395g can sweetened condensed milk
  2. 1 cup (220g) caster sugar
  3. 125g butter
  4. 2 tbsp (40ml/60g) Queen Glucose Syrup
  5. 200g dark chocolate, chopped
  6. 1/3 cup (80ml) Baileys Irish Cream
  7. 1 tsp Queen Concentrated Vanilla Extract
  8. 280g Maltesers

Method

  1. Step 1

    Grease and line the base of a 20cm x 20cm square cake tin or a 26cm x 16cm slice tin with baking paper or foil sprayed with non-stick spray.

  2. Step 2

    Place condensed milk, sugar, butter and Glucose Syrup in a large (3L) microwave-safe glass bowl and microwave for 8 minutes, stopping to stir every 2 minutes. Keep a close eye on the microwave as the mixture may bubble over.

  3. Step 3

    Add Baileys and Vanilla Extract, stirring to combine – be careful as mixture may bubble. Add chocolate and stir until mixture is smooth and glossy. Working quickly, pour into tin and smooth. Top with Maltesers and lightly press into fudge.

  4. Step 4

    Allow to cool completely before refrigerating for 2 hours. Slice into pieces with a hot knife to serve.

Recipe Note:

We used a 1100 watt microwave at full power. For a lower or higher wattage microwave, additional or less time may be needed to set correctly.

A large 3L is required for microwave fudge as mixture increases in size as it bubbles – any smaller and the mixture may bubble over the sides of your bowl.

Please use oven mitts or a tea towel when handling the glass bowl straight from the microwave as it will be very hot.
