Chocolate Fudge

It is important to know that what follows is NOT a recipe for chocolate fudge icing:

  • 50g/2oz margarine
  • 25g/1oz cocoa, sifted
  • about 2 tbsp milk
  • 225g/8oz icing sugar, sifted

To make the icing, melt the margarine in a small pan, add the cocoa and cook for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in the milk and icing sugar. Beat well until smooth. Cool a little until of spreading consistency.

Must I take a recipe from the Americans ? Please, an alternative is needed for we want thick, goopy, fudge-like icing. Not this runny chocolate sauce concoction we appear to have ended up with. Perhaps we prepared it wrong, or need some expert guidance…

The cake’s nice though, regardless.
