Thermomix Choc Orange Jaffas Fudge Recipe

Makes 35-40 pieces

Ingredients

  • 225g Milk chocolate melts
  • 200g Sugar
  • 395g Sweetened condensed milk
  • 125g Unsalted butter
  • 25g Liquid glucose
  • 1 heaped tsp of fresh orange zest
  • 340g bag Allen’s Jaffas

Method

1. Place the milk chocolate melts in the Thermomix jug and mill speed 9 for 10 seconds. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

2. Without cleaning the bowl, add the sugar to the jug and mill speed 9 for 10 seconds. Add the condensed milk, butter and glucose to the milled sugar. Cook at 100°, speed 3 for 8 minutes, measuring cup on.

3. Time to turn the heat up! Cook the mixture at varoma temperature, speed 3 for 20 minutes, measuring cup off. Meanwhile, line your 25x15cm slice tin with baking paper and set it aside. Add the milled milk chocolate together with the orange zest. Mix at speed 3 for 30 seconds.

4. Take ¼ of a cup of the Jaffas, place them in a zip lock bag and crush them up a bit. Stir through the crushed Jaffas with a spatula and pour the mixture into your prepared tin, levelling out the top.

5. Place the remaining Jaffas on top of the fudge. You can put them on there any way you like, just push them in gently so they set into the fudge. Let the fudge cool at room temperature.

WARNING: If you put the Jaffas covered fudge into the fridge to hurry up the setting process, it will turn the Jaffas a pale colour instead of that glorious shiny red. Still delicious, but a different colour.

6. Once the slab of fudge is cool, melt the dark chocolate melts in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring each time, until melted. Tip the chocolate into a small zip-lock bag, snip a tiny corner off and drizzle the chocolate over the top. Let it set.

7. Once the chocolate has set, it’s time to cut the fudge. Half the fun is navigating your cuts around the Jaffas – don’t expect every piece to be perfect!

And Voila! Bon Appetit!

All that’s left to do is sit back and enjoy, YUM!
