This no cook fudge recipe is so easy, with only 5 ingredients it makes the perfect gift for children to make for their family and friends as it takes no cooking. The only part which needs adult help is the blending. It does contain peanuts however so isn’t suitable for anyone with an allergy or for taking to school as most have a complete ban on peanuts. I really like this recipe with salted peanuts, but you can use plain if you prefer.
We have put this in a little box lined with tissue paper and wrapped with ribbon as a gift. It would make a great Christmas gift for children to give. I think it’s really nice for children to make something themselves – especially if they are too young for pocket-money and even the youngest child can help with the breaking biscuits and cutting the fudge into shapes.
You Will Need
- 1 (8 ounces) roasted salted peanuts,
- 1 (8 ounces) pack tea biscuits
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 can (14 ounces) condensed milk
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- Break the biscuits into small pieces.
- Grind the biscuits and peanuts into fine crumbs using a blender.
- Add the sugar.
- Stir in the condensed milk.
- Blend thoroughly until the mixture starts to form a ball.
- Transfer into a shallow, lined tray.
- Leave for an hour or overnight.
- Cut into pieces or use a cookie cutter to make shapes.
This recipe comes from Brazil and is our recipe for Around the world in 12 dishes. I found the original recipe here.
Welcome to “Around The World in 12 Dishes”. We will be taking you on a journey around the world, (loosely) following in Phileas Fogg’s footsteps, exploring 12 different countries with our children, by cooking 12 dishes with them. One for each country visited.
The world is such a wonderfully diverse and colorful place. Our children see maps, flags and books. They see postcards and maybe they see films about the world.. but let’s really bring it to life through food! Taste and smell don’t often get explored, we think this would be wonderfully fun and interesting for you and your children.
Not only is it an exciting and different way to learn about cultures, but cooking with children brings a host of benefits – from numeracy to science. How can you beat that?
