Five Farms Irish Cream Liqueur Fudge from the Celtic Ross Hotel
When we think of festive food one of the first words which comes to mind is indulgence. There is nothing nicer than that guilt free second helping of Christmas pudding or a sneaky mince pie, just because …...it’s Christmas.
In the lead up to Christmas the Celtic Ross kitchen team have been creating the most deliciously sweet treats for our guests to savour. In keeping with the hotel ethos of supporting all that is local here in West Cork we thought we might share one of our favourites, an indulgent fudge recipe made using Five Farms Irish Cream Liqueur for you to try at home.
Before we get working on the recipe, just to give a little background on Five Farms. Five Farms is a true farm to table product, crafted from single batches of fresh cream that are combined with premium Irish Whiskey within 48 hours of collection to become authentic Irish Cream Liqueur. The cream is sourced entirely from five family-owned farms in County Cork, run by families that have a deep connection to the land and a passion for their craft. You can see why we enjoy this West Cork twist on fudge which makes a lovely after dinner treat or handmade gift if you are visiting family this Christmas.
To make the fudge you will need:
- 240g of good quality milk chocolate
- 200g condensed milk
- 40g Five Farms Irish Cream Liqueur
- 15g of unsalted butter
- 60g of icing sugar
The method couldn’t be easier. Place butter and chocolate in a heat proof bowl over a pot of simmering water until the chocolate has melted, stirring occasionally. Using another bowl gently warm the condensed milk and Five Farms over the same pan of simmering water. Combine the melted chocolate and butter into the warmed condensed milk mixture. Sieve the icing sugar into the chocolate. Stir with a spatula until the mixture is silky and smooth. Pour into a square dish, lined with baking paper and place in the fridge until the fudge is cold and set. Cut into bite sized pieces, indulge, and enjoy.
