Recipe for Cocoa Nib Fudge. The nuttiness of the cocoa nibs is a fabulous counter for the sweet fudge, resulting in the perfect complimentary flavours…
4 cups light brown sugar
1 cup boiling water
100g salted butter
2 tbs golden syrup
1 tin condensed milk
4 tbs cocoa powder
1 tbs brandy (optional)
1 packet cocoa nibs (find it at specialist chocolate shops and even some health food shops)
Add all the ingredients together except the brandy and cocoa nibs.
Bring to the boil, constantly stirring.
Continue boiling over medium heat for a good 25-30 minutes, stirring all the time (a balloon whisk works well for this).
Remove from heat, add the brandy if using and whisk for a minute.
Pour the fudge into a rectangular plastic container sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Top with the cocoa nibs and gently press them into the fudge. Allow fudge to set at room temperature or in the fridge. Cut into blocks and tuck in.
