Chocolate Almond Fudge - Celebrating One Year Of Blogging

Hieee All, Today is 19th March and I have completed 1 year in the blogging world. I do not believe that 1 year has passed since I posted my first recipe of KadaiPaneer. Cooking has always been more then a hobby to me, it has been a passion. However, what I lacked was the ability to remember the recipes.  Merry Tummy is a place where in I can keep all the recipes that I have tried some of which my mother taught me. So basically Merry Tummy began for my own convenience but now it is more about sharing my recipes and learning new ones from my fellow bloggers.

In this span of 1 year I have learnt a lot of new techniques and methods of cooking various things. I tried some recipes that I never even thought of before. Some of these are burger buns, whole wheat chocolate bread, French cake and many others.

At last I thank all of you who have been following my blog, liking my recipes on Facebook, commenting on the posts and requesting for recipes on Merry Tummy. I am also grateful to Mr. Husband for motivating me and criticizing the dishes and clicks -without which I would have not improved.
I am sure that blogging is my love and I will keep blogging and become more skilled at it.

So on today’s special day I chose to make easy Chocolate Almond Fudge. Fudge is a type of Western sweet, which is usually sweet and rich. It is made by mixing sugar, butter, and milk, heating them to the soft-ball consistency and then beating the mixture while it cools so that it acquires a smooth, creamy consistency. Like all other recipes there are many variations with different flavorings. Personally I feel that Chocolate fudge is the easiest and the yummiest among the lot. I also added almonds to bring the crunch to soft fudge.


250g of Milk Chocolate-chopped
250g of Dark Chocolate-chopped
400g Can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
70g of Butter
100g of Almonds-roughly chopped


1.Prepare the tray. Take a tray on which you want to set the fudge and lay it with parchment/baking paper.
2.On a double boiler heat milk chocolate, dark chocolate and condensed milk.
3.Keep mixing till all the ingredients are melted and mixed well.
4.Once melted and mixed, throw chopped almonds and muddle up well.
5.Lastly, pour the above mixture in the tray and refrigerate for atleast 5-6 hours or overnight for best results.

  • I used 8x8 square tray to set my fudge, but any size of square or rectangle tray will do-just chop the fudge in the size you want
  • Please do not ignore the use of parchment paper as it will help a lot to un-mould the fudge without any mess. 
  • It is good if you set the fudge over night. This will help it to set properly and finally you will have clean cut of fudge.
  • It is ideal as Easter gift.


  • Any kind of nuts like pistachio, cashews, and raisins can be added.
  • To make it richer add liquor like rum or brandy.
  • Crushed biscuits can also be blended instead of nuts. 


  • Soft and delicate with crunchy and rich chocolate flavor.
