A big thank you to Angie and the co-hosts  Elaine and  Julianna.

Instant Chocolate Walnut Fudge- in all of three minutes!!

Last night my plans of serving a fruity dessert of Mango cream vanished in thin air as the mangoes did a disappearing act from my pantry. Two teenagers in the house will do that to you. I decided on a dessert free dinner. But it was not to be, with it being a Friday night and a Football one at that! Demands for dessert started coming in at 11.30 PM- chocolaty demands at that!
My friend Jaya Amit does a mean chocolate walnut fudge in the microwave and that saved my day!

Here is a chocolaty and scrumptious dessert, done under three minutes.
Topped with cream cheese frosting, slivered almonds and choco-chips, this was the perfect start to the weekend!

*This gives a fudgy texture. If u want a firmer texture, microwave again for a minute on high.
*You can skip the walnuts to get plain chocolate fudge
*Check the consistency of fudge after the third minute and continue only if needed.
*If using a wide dish cut each time slot by 15 secs.|
*Milk powder can be replaced with one cup of khoya/mawa

To make it on stove top

Take a heavy-bottomed, non-stick saucepan.Heat the ghee/butter.Cook the khoya / milk powder mixed in milk for 2 minutes and then slowly add in the remaining ingredients.

Add 1/4th cup milk gradually while adding other ingredients. Cook for about 3-5 minutes depending on consistency desired. Add milk if you find the mixture too dry. Be careful to cook on low heat the whole time. Remove from heat and add the vanilla extract.
Enjoy!
