Remember the snacks and goodies our mothers’ used to make for us years and years ago? Nowadays you can’t mention most of them for fear of getting funny looks. This is one of those that get mixed reactions. And by mixed I’m referring to how half the people proclaim their love for them and the others try to hide the fact that they would give anything for just one more piece.
So without further ado, here is one of my favorite stock items for the pantry.
Old fashioned biscuit fudge:
1 pack / 200g Marie biscuits
250g butter (You can use margarine, but trust me; butter is so much better)
500g icing sugar
30g / 75ml cocoa powder
Prepare a dish with non stick spray. I like to use a 20 x 30 cm dish.
Crush the biscuits until crumbly and not too fine. Melt the butter in a pot big enough for all the ingredients. Sieve the icing sugar and cocoa together and stir into the butter over a medium heat until smooth. Quickly whisk in the egg.
Take off the heat and stir in the biscuits. Spoon into the prepared dish and leave to cool. As soon as it is firm enough, portion into blocks.
Makes a lot or not enough. Depends on how you look at it!
