Simple Chocolate and Hazelnut Fudge

We have made these unbelievably simple fudge squares using a combination of our intense EXCELLENCE 70% Cocoa and Roasted Hazelnut Dark Chocolates to create the most delicious sweet treat. Serve with a cup of coffee or wrap in cellophane bags and give as gifts to friends and family.


Chocolatier’s Tip

You can ring the changes and use chopped almonds if you prefer. 


Makes 36 pieces of fudge



  • 150 g blanched hazelnuts
  • 1 x 397 g tin of condensed milk
  • 250 g Lindt EXCELLENCE 70% Cocoa Dark Chocolate, finely chopped
  • 100 g Lindt EXCELLENCE Roasted Hazelnut Chocolate, finely chopped
  • 25 g unsalted butter

Lindt Chocolate In This Recipe


Step 1.

Grease and line a 20 cm / 8-inch square tin with greaseproof paper and set aside.

Step 2.

Roughly chop the hazelnuts. Tip into a frying pan and gently toast until golden - watch closely to ensure they do not burn or they will become bitter. Remove from the heat and tip into a heat-proof bowl. Set aside.

Step 3.

Pour the condensed milk into a heavy-based saucepan, add the chopped chocolates, followed by the butter. Heat gently, stirring all the time, until melted and smooth.

Step 4.

Add the toasted hazelnuts and mix well until completely coated in the condensed milk-chocolate.

Step 5.

Pour into the prepared tin and smooth over the top using the back of a spoon. Leave to cool completely before covering and chilling for at least 4 hours - or until set.

Step 6.

Remove from the tin, peel off the greaseproof, and cut into 36 small squares - these are very rich so you only need bite-sized pieces.
