Dark Chocolate and Irish Cream Fudge Recipe

Fudge has got to be one of the easiest treats you can make and most definitely one of the tastiest. It’s rich, creamy and just melts in your mouth – a perfect fudge! And so ridiculously delicious.

With just three ingredients and takes just minutes to make, it couldn’t get any easier. They are ideal to give out as gifts, but i must warn you they are so addictive you may not want to!

Once you make them I would advise you to store them in a tin in your fridge, the longer you leave them in there the more they set.

Dark Chocolate and Irish Cream Fudge

Three ingredients to make a rich and creamy delicious fudge

Course Dessert, Snack


  • 600 g Dark chocolate You could use milk or white
  • 375 g Tin of Condensed Milk
  • 125 ml Irish Cream/Baileys


  1. Melt the chocolate. This can be done in a glass bowl over a pan of hot water, in the microwave or in a pan. If you're melting it in the pan, keep an eye on it and keep stirring.

  2. Once melted place in a pan (if not already in one) and add in the condensed milk. Stir to combine. Keep stirring and add in the Irish cream/baileys. Combine well. It will begin to thicken. (You can add in some icing sugar at this point if you want)

  3. Pour into an 8" square silicone mould

  4. Leave to cool and then place into the fridge to set for about 8 hours

  5. I always place into the freezer just before i cut the fudge for about 15 minutes.

    Take out of the silicone mould and cut into cubes. Don't worry about keeping them the same size, the more rugged the better

    Place into a tin and store in the fridge

You can choose to use a mixture of chocolate or add in some chocolate chips. The good thing about making fudge is just to experiment with different combinations of ingredients. How about a rum and raisin one?
