    Easter Spiced Fudge


    • 200g marshmallows
    • 70g butter, cut into cubes the size of a thumb nail
    • 200g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
    • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
    • Zest of one orange (no pith though!)
    • 100g Natural Selection crimson sultanas
    • 40g Natural Selection crystalised ginger chopped
    • Small sugar eggs if you so wish


    1. Place the marshmallows, butter, dark chocolate, ground cinnamon and orange zest into a saucepan. Heat on a low hob until completely dissolved, stirring regularly. Don’t be tempted to hurry it by turning up the heat – the chocolate will burn!
    2. Remove from the heat and add the sultanas and ginger, stir well and pour into a tin (approx. 24cm x 24cm) lined with greaseproof paper. Push small sugar eggs into the top if you wish then refrigerate for 2 hours. Cut into squares and serve!
