Can I Make 2-Ingredient Fudge?
I wanted to make fudge as part of my 2020 Typography Ice Cream Fudge Block! (Stay tuned!), so I decide to check out Spice Bangla's YouTube video, which has >4.5 million views! Somebody must think it's good. :) 2-Ingredient fudge sounded too easy & good to be true.
December 30, 2019, Attempt #1:
- Sweetened condensed milk & chocolate in 4:3 ratio
In the video, they use 400 grams of sweetened condensed milk to 300 grams of semi-sweet dark chocolate for a 5" x 7" pan.
-- 1 can is typically 397 grams btw, so that works out.
It's pretty easy. The steps are:
- You pour the sweetened condensed milk into a pot on the stove on low.
- Put your chocolate in and stir until combined.
- Then you pour it into a parchment lined pan and put it into the fridge to set for at least 3 hours or overnight.
RESULT: Success! :)
We are good at this! It tastes really good and it was really easy! It literally takes 2-5 minutes of active work.
They used a 5" x 7" baking pan as I mentioned and their fudge was about 1" thick. I used a baking sheet because I was going to try to sculpt it into numbers that I could stack. I could have probably also used a smaller baking pan like them (5" x 7") and carved out the numbers which would have already been 1" thick, but I'm not sure.
If you're making fudge I recommend you use a smaller pan which will make your fudge at least 1/2" or 1" thick. It will make it easier for you to cut it into pieces.
Stay tuned for the 2020 Typography Ice Cream Fudge Block! post! :)
Give it a try! We are good at this!
