  • 14 ounces (300ml) condensed milk
  • 16 ounces (450g) dark chocolate bars, broken into pieces or chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup yellow and orange m&m candies


  • Line an 8x8 inch square pan with parchment paper.
  • In a saucepan, combine condensed milk, dark chocolate pieces, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt. Cook over medium heat, mixing frequently until the chocolate is fully melted.
  • Pour the mixture into the pan. Leave to cool for about 10 minutes.
  • Top with yellow and orange candies by pressing slightly into the fudge with your fingers.
  • Put in the fridge to harden for at least 3 hours, or place inside the freezer for 1 hour.
  • Remove fudge from pan, slice, and serve.


  • Watch closely and stir frequently when combining the chocolate and other ingredients so it doesn’t burn.
  • Don’t forget to line the pan with parchment paper. This will help make it easy to remove from the pan before cutting. 
  • Use a warm, serrated knife to cut the fudge into bite-sized pieces.
  • Make sure the fudge has hardened well before cutting to get neatly cut pieces.
  • Feel free to use a 9x9inch square pan. Fudge will have slightly less height but will work just as well.
