Last week was our Christmas party at Ella's Moms&Tots class, and I had to take a plate of sweet eats, something suitable for both adults and the toddlers. What's better than marie biscuit fudge? Everyone loves that!
It's so quick and easy to make.
- 1 packet Marie biscuits, crushed into crumbs and small pieces
- 500g icing sugar
- half a cup cocoa
- 1 egg, lightly beaten, add a dash of vanilla essence
- 250g butter, melted
I melt the butter in the microwave on low.
I crush the marie biscuits with my pestle and mortar.
Then add the icing sugar and cocoa and give it a bit of a stir through, before adding the beaten egg and the melted butter. Stir through (don't burn with the melted butter!)
Press flat into a pan, and pop it into the fridge to chill.
Cut into squares.
Keep in airtight container - I like mine cold, so keep it in the fridge.
A fond memory I have about these treats, is that when I was in college, my darling Granny used to give me frozen containers of meals she had cooked for dinner and kept some aside for me. I would then just pop them in my freezer and take them out as I needed a meal. Once, I didn't check what was inside the container, took it out in the morning to defrost, and that evening when I wanted to warm it up and opened it for the first time - it was a container full of marie biscuit fudge!
