Chocolate Entrepreneur day ~ Cherise

The theme for my son at school for the last couple of weeks has been chocolate! The school decided to incorporate this theme with an entrepreneur day. This is the day where the boys get paired up and spend an afternoon making a dish that contains chocolate, so that they can sell it at the school the next day. After reviewing several recipes, I got my hands on a recipe that looked easy enough for children to make and delicious enough for children to eat. I went with an easy choc fudge with crushed Marie biscuits recipe. After fetching the boys from school our cooking skills were put to the test, with the boys crushing the biscuits (a bit too much) and me boiling butter and getting all ingredients together for them to whip up their delicious choc fudge. I’m very proud to announce the result looked good, tonight will be the real test once we cut them and taste them! But outside of the look and taste of the fudge, a good lesson will be taught to the boys when they have to set up shop and sell them tomorrow at school, here's hoping the children love them too!


250 grams butter, or margarine
500 grams icing sugar,
70 ml cocoa powder
1 jumbo egg
1 packet Marie Biscuit, roughly crushed

1. Melt the butter/margarine in a large pot on the stove or in a big bowl in the microwave. 2. Meanwhile sift the icing sugar and cocoa powder together to remove any lumps.
3. Once butter is melted, remove from heat and stir in icing sugar mixing with a wooden spoon. (It should look crumbly and grainy).
4. Next, beat egg then pour into warm mixture and mix the egg super quickly into the chocolaty mixture to form a nice runny goo.
5. Add crushed Marie biscuits and work through fudge mixture until all biscuits are coated with fudge.
6. Spray & Cook a large enough dish to hold the fudge. Pour fudge into dish and press down and even with a spoon. Place in fridge until just set, remove and cut into squares and return to fridge until completely cool and set. Eat and enjoy!
