    Quick q re chocolate measure (for evil bellybelly fudge)

    Okay, going to make the famous evil bellybelly fudge, but don't have choc melts, just a big block of cooking chocolate. It weighs 375g. Would this be the same as the specified three cups of choc melts required in the recipe?



    Thanks! I can't wait to make and eat this!

    1 cup of choc bits weighs 175gms, so you wont have enough. You could halve the recipe amounts and make it that way

    I dont like cooking chocolate or Dark chocolate and I think the fudge taste just like the chocolate you use so make sure you like the chocolate you use iykwim

    This recipe gets posted all over the place here. I think it almost needs it's own sticky sometimes! I can't remember who's recipe it was originally, but it is often referred to as "evil bellybelly fudge". Many thanks from me to whoever first posted it!

    Evil Bellybelly Fudge

    3 Cups choc melts
    1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
    40g unsalted butter
    1x 395g can sweetened condensed milk

    place choc melts, vanilla essence, butter and condensed milk in a pan, stir over low heat until melted. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
    pour into a prepared 20cm tin, cover and refrigerate until firm.


    I just made it with 400g milk choc and 100g dark choc, and salted butter, so we'll see how it turns out.
