I was a volunteer at this year’s Celebrate Festival Whalley Range (hosted by Whalley Range Forum). I designed the poster and programme, and helped out at the venue, but possibly my favourite thing I did was making four kinds of chocolate fudge to sell, to raise funds for Whiz Youth Project.
It’s basically the same chocolate fudge recipe I’ve posted before, but since it was so long ago I’ll repeat it.
- 100g dark chocolate (many are non-dairy, I used the Asda brand one)
- 100g Pure sunflower margarine
- 400g icing sugar
- 80-100 ml soya cream
- 10g cocoa powder
- drop vanilla extract (or other flavour such as orange)
- (optional) raisins, chopped hazelnuts or other fruit/nut mix
- Melt the chocolate and marg carefully (not directly over the heat).
- Stir in the vanilla and cocoa, and gradually add the sugar and cream a bit at a time until it stiffens. Add the nuts and fruit towards the end.
- Place in a greased container in the fridge for two hours.
- Cut into cubes.
I made plain chocolate, fruit and nut, chocolate orange and mint-choc-chip varieties, and they all sold out, thanks to the team of young people and volunteers from Whiz (see photo below, by Anthony Morris).
