I saw this fudge recipe in a Bakers biscuit magazine advert. I’ve found that recipes that have been created by a food company to specifically showcase one of its products tend to be a pretty sure bet. Hence, I decided to give it a try.
Besides, being the novice baker that I am, I have never made fudge!
Eet-Sum-Mor Fudge Recipe
- 1 x 200 g packet of Bakers Eet-Sum-Mor Biscuits
- 250 g butter
- 5 ml vanilla essence
- 500 g icing sugar
- 5 ml coffee granules
- 45 ml cocoa powder
- 1 beaten egg
- icing sugar (extra)
I didn’t read the fudge recipe instructions beforehand. I just made sure I had all the ingredients. What a nice surprise when I saw that I didn’t need to use the oven! Also, it’s a really easy fudge recipe – especially for a lazy and very hot day (which it was).
- Place the Eet–Sum–Mor Biscuits on a board. You can either break them or cut them into coarse crumbs. Ensure that you have some chunky pieces.
- Melt the butter and add the vanilla essence, icing sugar, cocoa powder, coffee and egg. Mix well.
- Then mix the biscuits into the butter mixture and pour it into a greased baking dish, 20 cm square.
- Sprinkle generously with the extra icing sugar.
- Chill in the fridge and then cut into small squares. This fudge recipe makes about 36 pieces.
Note: Cookies, bars and slices that contain melted or solid butter should be stored in the fridge in airtight containers.
Some of my comments:
- Make sure there aren’t any lumps in the icing sugar before you add it to the mixture. It’s difficult to get rid of clumps of icing sugar once it is mixed in with everything else.
- I’d say to keep the “chunky” pieces of the biscuits to a maximum size of around 1 cm in length. Fine crumbs “get lost” in the fudge, so try to keep those to a minimum.
- Regarding “chill in the fridge”. I suggest leaving them until they are around the temperature of the fridge. If you try and remove the slices from the pan before that you will end up with lumps of gooey fudge.
So, how did it go down?
I don’t have a sweet tooth and these are extremely sweet. But then, isn’t all fudge very sweet? Having the biscuit in the mixture balances it a bit.
The Man really likes them and father-in-law votes for yummy. Still, comments of “very sweet”.
So, if you are a fudge fan or a very sweet person, give this fudge recipe a go. It’s an interesting and tasty different take on fudge.
