Terry's Chocolate Orange and Orange Matchmaker Fudge

Monday, 10 December 2018
Such an quick and easy four ingredient festive fudge to make in the microwave. Zingy Orange additions from Terry's Chocolate Orange and Orange Matchmakers for a real taste of Christmas. No tricky temperatures or boiling hot sugar required.


There are some sweets that really only ever get eaten at Christmas. Two of them I used in a previous version of this fudge - After Eight and Candy Cane Fudge - which has proved to be really popular. This year I used two other festive favourites - Terry's Chocolate Orange and Zingy Orange Matchmakers - to make a version of the fudge with one of my Community Cookery Classes. When I shared it on Instagram Stories I was inundated with requests for the recipe. My teenagers liked the sound of it too and demanded that I make another batch. Needless to say I bowed to the pressure and remade and blogged the recipe.


My Terry's Chocolate Orange and Zingy Orange Matchmaker Fudge is so so easy to make. No boiling, no tricky temperatures, no chance of it all going horribly wrong. You just need to work quickly and have all your toppings ready to go. You'll also need patience to wait for it to set. A minimum of 4 hours but ideally overnight. I also made a third version using Cool Mint Matchmakers and After Eights. Equally delicious and I'm sure you can work it out for yourself now you've got two recipes to go on. The festive fudge combinations are lirerally endless!


Terry's Chocolate Orange and Zingy Orange Matchmaker Fudge

1 x 157g Terry's Chocolate Orange
1 x 120g box Zingy Orange Matchmakers
500g Milk Chocolate
1 x 397g tin Condensed Milk

Line a traybake tin (aprox 34cm x 20 cm) with baking paper.
Tap and unwrap the Terry's Chocolate Orange (the core is the chef's perk!)
Break up the matchmakers and spread out half of them in the base of the lined traybake tin. 
Break up the chocolate and put in a microwavable bowl along with the condensed milk. 
Microwave in a series of 30 second bursts. 
Remove, stir and check each time until it the chocolate has melted. 
Beat well with a wooden spoon until smooth.
*** At this point you need to work quickly ***
Tip the fudge into the prepared tin and spread it with a palette knife into a smooth and even layer. 
Sprinkle over the remaining half of the Orange Matchmakers and push in the pieces of Terry's Chocolate Orange.
Place the tray of Fudge in the fridge to set for at least 4 hours (or ideally overnight)
Once hard cut into chunks with a large knife.
