Have some cookies lying around in your kitchen? Want to give them a makeover? Try using them to make this very simple but delicious fudge! Cut into squares or served on sticks, your guests will surely love these beauties.
*Recipe adapted from Akila’s blog Morphy And Me*
Ingredients (makes 12-15 pieces):
- 10-15 leftover cookies (I used Marie biscuits)
- 1 cup milk chocolate, grated (I used Amul)
- 2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk, or as needed (I used Amul Mithai Mate)
- Unsalted butter, to grease your hands (I used Amul)
- Powder the cookies in a mixer. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Keep aside.
- Fill a large pan up to about 3/4 with water, and place it on high heat. When the water comes to a boil, take the grated chocolate in a smaller pan and place it inside the boiling water. Turn down the heat to low-medium. Stirring intermittently, let the chocolate melt completely (double boiler method). Switch off heat.
- Transfer the melted chocolate to the mixing bowl. Mix well.
- Add in condensed milk, in just enough consistency for the mixture to reach a fudgy consistency. Mix well.
- Grease your palms with a little unsalted butter, and use them to shape small balls out of the mixture. Set a toothpick into each ball.
- Place the balls in an air-tight box lined with butter paper. Refrigerate them for about an hour, by which time they will set.
- Once the fudge is set and ready, serve them either chilled or after bringing them to room temperature. I dusted the balls with a little powdered sugar and cocoa powder before serving.
- Store any leftover fudge in the refrigerator, to keep it firm and fresh.
- You could use any type of cookies and chocolate to make this fudge. Try out different permutations and combinations for different-tasting fudge every time.
- Chopped nuts can be added to the fudge as well.
- Add just enough condensed milk for you to be able to form balls out of the mixture. Adding too much condensed milk will make it difficult for the fudge to set.
- If you feel the mixture is too runny, you could add in a bit more biscuit powder to adjust the consistency.
