This biscuit fudge is delightfully decadent and easy enough for the children to also join in and lend a helping hand. It’s also the perfect answer to bake sales, kids parties, gifts or when you find your family poking around the pantry for a sweet treat.
This old-fashioned favourite is so simple to make with the no-bake aspect of the recipe scoring major brownie points!
Crush your dry biscuits in either a food processor or by hand, but take care not to crush them too finely, seeing those yummy pieces inside the biscuit fudge is what it’s all about. A good idea is to put the biscuits into a plastic tub and crush them with a mug or thick glass. (This is where the little helping hands come in!)
The chocolate and dry biscuit mixture is pressed into a greased dish and left to set in the refrigerator. As easy as that…Enjoy!
PS: Make sure to keep this recipe safe for future generations of chocolate fudge lovers!
