Instead of chocolate and butter in my favourite recipe for brownies try substituting Man of Aran Chocolate Fudge.
Beat eggs and sugar together over hot bowl of water – when sugar dissolved add vanilla essence and beat until definite trail forms.
Sift cocoa, baking powder and flour together. Add chopped walnuts then add fudge (cut into pieces between size of pea and sugar lump).
Stir dry ingredients into egg mixture – add tblsp of boiling water if required to have correct stiff pouring mixture.
Pour into lined swiss roll tin and bake in centre of pre-heated oven (160degrees) for 25 minutes or until springy to touch. Leave on paper as you place onto wire tray. When cool cut into fingers removing paper.
Fudge as a Fairy Cake Topping
A very special topping for a bun that really puts it into the league of best-in-the-world has to be melted Man of Aran Heavenly Honeycomb Fudge.
This photo shows a banana and walnut bun with Heavenly Honeycomb fudge melted on top.
Just melt the fudge in a bain-marie, add a little liquid if required and pour.
Chocolate Fudge: a filling for Danish pastries
Remember the terrible winter of 2010?
Several markets were abandoned that time and one Saturday there was nothing to be done so I decided to enjoy a session in the kitchen and make some Danish pastries.
As I did not have any ground almonds to make a filling I sliced the fudge and laid it on the pastry instead.
DELICIOUS. They tasted every bit as good as they look.
