Jill’s Super Easy Chocolate Fudge

Super Easy Chocolate Fudge

by Jill Casavecchia

Today a good friend of mine, Jill Casavecchia, leaves our lovely little village in Ireland and begins a new life in Brisbane, Australia. She arrived this morning after spending New Years somewhere over Abu Dhabi, I believe. Todays post is her wonderful, super simple but ridiculously tasty Chocolate Fudge recipe, that I hope you all enjoy. Thank you Jill for being a part of this project during such an exciting and busy time in your life!


  • 1 lb. or 3 cups powdered sugar (icing sugar in the UK)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil/tin foil, allowing foil to extend over sides.
  2. Butter foil.
  3. In bowl, mix together sugar, cocoa and cinnamon.
  4. In a saucepan, heat butter and milk until butter melts.
  5. Add vanilla extract.
  6. Combine with sugar mixture.
  7. Stir in nuts.
  8. Pour into prepared pan.
  9. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.
  10. Use foil to lift out of pan. Cut into 2-inch squares. Diagonally cut each square in half, making triangles. (Garnish with whole nuts, if desired.)Makes 1 pound (32 servings)

Jill is a California/Arizona native, who has been living in Northern Ireland for the past four years and today arrives in Brisbane, Australia to begin another adventure. She is a Waldorf teacher, jewellery designer (check out her brilliant etsy store) and creative nut.
