Ingredients

180g (6oz) mini chocolate eggs (I use Cadbury Mini Eggs)
1 x 397g (14oz) can condensed milk
500g (1lb) white chocolate, broken into pieces

Essential kit

You will need: a 20cm (8in) square baking tin lined with nonstick baking paper.

Method

Line a 20cm (8in) square baking tin with nonstick baking paper.

Place half of the chocolate eggs on a chopping board and roughly crush with the end of a rolling pin or the back of a spoon.

Put the condensed milk and white chocolate into a large saucepan and warm over a low–medium heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is thick and smooth. It should peel away from the bottom and sides of the pan when you stir the mixture or tilt the pan. If it still looks runny, continue to cook until it thickens.

Turn off the heat and fold in the crushed chocolate eggs. Pour the mixture into your prepared tin and smooth it out to the edges. Press the remaining mini chocolate eggs into the top of the fudge.

Chill in the refrigerator for 3–4 hours until set, then cut into 64 x 2.5cm (1in) pieces. Enjoy!

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Swap: Try other types of chocolate eggs (I like using fondant filled eggs, such as Cadbury Creme Eggs).
