Encouraged by the great results, I set out to try this fudge last night. The only change I made was that I reduced the quantity to less than a third of the original as I did not want 64 pieces of wicked calorie bombs in the house ;-)
A little research on Nigella's recipe on which these are based told me that they are 70 calories a piece. Just right for a euphoria inducing cocoa shot after those dull dinner from leftovers ! See original recipe here :
I used :
1 3.5 oz bar of Lindt Excellence 70% Dark Cocoa Chocolate Bar
1/3 tin of milkmaid condensed milk
( Its so yummy that I can finish half the tin in a go !)
10g unsalted butter ( 3/4 tbsp)
a pinch of salt
handful of pistachios, chopped coarsely
Melt the first four together, mix the last, cool, cut, devour !
