  • 400 g milk chocolate
  • 1 x can sweetened condensed milk +-400g
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 75 g +- 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 25 g +- 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 20 pretzels
  • sea salt for sprinkling (optional)


  • Line a 20cmx20cm dish with parchment/baking paper. (Any size from around 20-25cm would work, your fudge will just be slightly thinner.)
  • Melt together the milk chocolate, condensed milk and butter over low heat.
  • Sift together the icing sugar and cocoa powder.
  • When the chocolate mixture is smooth, beat in the icing sugar mix until you have a smooth, thick dough-like mixture.
  • Transfer to the prepared dish and smooth the top. Press the pretzels into the fudge and sprinkle with salt (if using).
  • Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours to set before slicing into squares.
  • Place in a airtight container and keep in the fridge for up to a week.
