Serving Suggestions: This fudge is ideal as an after dinner accompaniment to coffee or as an evening indulgence.

Additional Comments: Using high quality chocolate is very important for this recipe. High cocoa solids make this a very rich and tasty dish. The high fat and milk content is lower cocoa chocolate mean the 'fudge' is less likely to set satisfactorily.

It's important not to let the bowl touch the water else the chocolate will burn and make the fudge taste sour.
