Easy Scrumptious Choc Fudge Slice

This is an absolutely delicious and easy fudge slice that my kids and hubby ( big kid) rave about! I was passed down this recipe by a wonderful lady who used to cook it for all her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and so forth, Have been making it ever since!

It takes me all of 10mins to make and never fails to please even the fussiest son!

I Usually double the mixture to do enough for the weeks school lunches.

Aww cheers guys for the support lol, It's not a hugely elaborate recipe but its one of my favs anyway!


Hi Margaret,
Add grated orange rind and its delicious. I don't ice it - Who needs icing!

Add sultanas & instead of icing on top yogurt or whipped cream is delicious.


Thanks Doreen will try that this week, a nice sneaky way of making them healthier lol........I like you do not ice it either as it is sweet enough.

Jeanette thanks yes sultanas are a good addition, i have never added them due to the kids hating what they call rat droppings but myself like it that way :)


This recipe was passed down to my family too, probably about 35 years ago, by a favourite aunt. It has been known affectionately as "Sludge Cake" as well, underlining the gorgeous gooiness!! It's a great recipe, and would probably have been the one I would have entered this competition with! Best of luck!
