For a while I've eaten shop bought fudge and wanted to make my own. It either came out too firm, too soft and nothing like fudge. After a few tries I nailed it and this recipe makes creamy, rich and indulgent fudge.
You can make it how I made it (healthy-ish) with coconut sugar & oil, raw dark chocolate & cacao. Or, use cheap icing sugar, chocolate and cocoa powder.

If using coconut sugar blend it in your blender until you have a fine powder.
Add the coconut oil to a non stick pan on a low heat. When it melts add the chocolate and stir until it's melted. Now add the cream, salt and vanilla and keep string until the sugar has melted. You can see the results to aim for on the video.
Add the cacao powder and vigorously stir in until you have a thick chocolate liquid. Pour into the lined tray and leave to cool for 20-30 minutes. Pop in the fridge for two hours to set. Once set cut into squares and enjoy!
TIP: The fudge will get firmer over a few days so if you prefer it softer add another 10ml of cream. Always use a low heat or you will burn the ingredients.
