Christmas Fudge with chili (will be translated upon request)

Fudge can basically be done in two different ways – and this is clearly the easiest. The consistency is super – and the taste gets you the self agenda. Here is my Christmas version which tastes delicious spicy.


1 ds kondenseret mælk

450 gr rigtig god flødechokolade

75 gr smør – possibly. usaltet

1 tsk chili

1 tsk stødt ingefær

1 lille kanelstang

2 stjerneanis

½ teaspoon whole cloves

10 – 12 grønne kardemommekapsler


How to:

Hak chokoladen fine, if not it is in buttons.

Line a mold with baking paper – I like to use one bread form – I think it is appropriate in size.

Crush kardemommekapslerne look and willow seeds ud. Throw away capsules.

Hugs all the whole spices and cardamom seeds in spice grinder.

Sift the spices, so you are sure that there are larger pieces between.

Mix all ingredients in either a bowl, as lunes a water bath, or in a pot if you can control your stove with low heat. I prefer water bath.

Warm ingredients quietly up until they are melted together. Massen må helst ikke komme over 45 grader pga. chocolate.

Pour the mixture into the mold and smooth the surface roughly out with a spatula.

Let it stand for peace on the kitchen table for a minimum of a few hours before it is cut into squares or bars.

Fudge can be stored in a tin with tight-fitting lid at room temperature if it should be eaten within a few days. Must keep them a little longer, can be stored refrigerated and can be frozen. You can easily freeze a large piece down and only cut it out when it is thawed and you should use it.

Chritmas caramels (will be translated upon request)


1 portion basis-karamelmasse

ca 100 gr rosiner

about 1 ½ – 2 dl portvin, ROM, or other well to soak the raisins in

ca 100 gr mandler eller nødder af din yndlingsslags – mine is Brazil nuts

1 tsp vanilla powder (not sugar)

2 kanelstænger

ca 15 grønne kardemomme

1 tsk nelliker


How to:

Dag 1:

Chop coarsely raisins and put them to soak in port wine or rum – or whatever you want overnight.


Dag 2.

Hugs kardemommerne with few bumps in the mortar and remove the husk.

Pour the seeds in spice grinder along with cloves and cinnamon sticks (who has just broken into a few pieces). Mal spices to a semi-fine powder and add vanillaen. Save for later.

Chop the nuts very rough.

Make the caramel as in the recipe for basic caramel and when it is about to be het finished, add to raisins – with the possible. excess fluid.

Boil again into the mass until it is finished. How long it takes depends on how much fluid that was with raisins. Stir well while the raisins do not burn on.

When the caramel is ready take it off the heat and stir in chopped nuts. Then the spices. Stir well and pour into a bowl with oiled cookie sheet. Follow the rest of the basic recipe.



Tefal has made a really good small electric spice- and coffee grinder. It comes with two inserts – one for coffee and one for spices. Den koster ca 250 kr. Se links.
