How to make easy chocolate fudge… WASH YOUR HANDS
Pour the condensed milk, chocolate and butter into a saucepan and ask an adult to set it over a medium to low heat (AGA simmering plate).
Grease and line the baking tin
Stir occasionally until the butter and chocolate have melted and it’s smooth and silky.
Sieve in the icing sugar and transfer to an electric mixer, beat well.
Transfer to the greased, lined baking tray, press the chopped nuts into the surface and allow to cool fully before cutting into squares.
Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
*You could replace the chocolate with toblerone or chocolate orange to vary the flavours or press in some dried cherries or cranberries into the fudge at the same time as the nuts.

“Sometimes you get discouraged
Because I am so small
And always leave my fingerprints
On furniture and walls.
But every day I’m growing –
I’ll be grown some day
And all those tiny handprints
Will surely fade away.
So here’s a little handprint
Just so you can recall
Exactly how my fingers looked
When I was very small.”
“Every mouse and bumblebee
Every bird up in a tree,
Every caterpillar and ladybug,
Loves to feel his mother’s hug.
Every bear so fat and funny
Loves his mother more than honey.
Just as woodland creatures do
I love my mother – oh yes I do!”
