Chocolate Orange Fudge Sauce

This months Center Parcs Challenge was inspired by Easter and encouraged us to make some sweet treats.  I often make cakes but haven't made confectionery for ages so this was just the excuse I needed to head out, to get the ingredients, to make some yummy fudge. Or so I thought..!

However, I must admit that it went down hill from there as I couldn't decided on a recipe.  I did eventually pick one but even as I was reading it, it didn't sound quite right.  And my prediction was confirmed the next morning when I found the unset fudge mixture sitting in the fridge.

So it was farewell to chocolate orange fudge but HELLO to hot chocolate orange fudge sauce which I can tell you was truly delicious over ice cream.  To be exceptionally decadent I actually decided to have mine in the bath.

Here's the recipe which is really simple.

You will need:
  • 250g chocolate (I used dark but you could use milk if you prefer)
  • 397g tin of condensed milk
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • Pour the tin of condensed milk into a microwavable  bowl.
  • Break up the chocolate and add to condensed milk.
  • Microwave gently until everything has melted (be careful not to burn).
  • Mix util chocolate and condensed milk has combined.
  • Add orange zest and stir.
  • Reheat as required.
