Layered Neapolitan Condensed Milk Chocolate Fudge


It's Valentine's eve, but there's still plenty of time to whip up a special treat! This quick adaptation on basic condensed milk and chocolate fudge looks (and tastes) awesome, and the pretty Neapolitan layers are perfect for Valentine's Day.  Shhh...nobody needs to know how easy it was to make!  Here's how:

Layered Neapolitan Condensed Milk Chocolate Fudge

To make your own, you can easily adapt your favourite condensed milk fudge recipe, or use the basic recipe below (my adaptation of this All Recipes fudge recipe). The layered fudge is made in three stages using one 400g/14oz can of sweetened condensed milk divided roughly into thirds and chocolate (see below), with a few simple (optional) add-ons to create the Neapolitan look and flavour.


White/Vanilla:
Roughly 1/3 of a 400g/14oz can of sweetened condensed milk
1 cup of white chocolate
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

Pink/Strawberry:
Roughly 1/3 of a 400g/14oz can of sweetened condensed milk
1 cup of white chocolate
1 tbsp strawberry jam and/or 1/2 tsp strawberry essence (both optional)
red or pink food colouring (optional)

Brown/Chocolate:
Roughly 1/3 of a 400g/14oz can of sweetened condensed milk
1 cup of milk or dark chocolate (I recommend dark to mellow down the sweetness a little)


Line a small baking dish with aluminum foil or baking paper (optional, but make removal for cutting so much easier) and ensure that you have enough space in your freezer or fridge to hold the pan.  Divide a can of sweetened condensed milk into three separate microwave-safe mixing bowls, so that easy has approximately 1/3 of the condensed milk.  Add the ingredients for each layer to the separate dishes in preparation for incremental melting and assembly. Melt the first layer in the microwave, stir until smooth, and pur into your prepared baking dish.  Place into the freezer or fridge until the top feels somewhat firm to the touch but not completely set. Repeat to complete the second and then third layers. Chill until completely firm.  Remove from pan and cut into small pieces. For clean cuts, work incrementally with a large non-serrated knife, running your blade under hot water and wiping dry with a clean cloth before each slice.  The fudge is best stored cool, but can be enjoyed served at room temperature.
