Easy No Bake Chocolate Biscuit Fudge

September 30, 2012

Finally! A very warm welcome to my brand new self hosted browniegirlblog site to you my fabulous reader! Thank you for finding your way over. I do hope that while you are here you will click on the Bloglovin’ link to the right of this post to sign up so that you never miss a post. A very special thank you once again to my friend and IT Ninja Fritz from Real Men Can Cook for all the hard work that he has put in to make this moment a reality! And thank you Jackie from Inspired by Food for the lovely header and the design work that you are still doing for me behind the scenes! I am deeply grateful to both these lovely people for all the fabulous help!

So to celebrate the launch of this new site I thought I would share something deliciously sweet and simple to make. No baking required, just a bit of time for setting…but not too long! This is a recipe that is part of my childhood. My mom used to make this as a special treat for us and it never lasted long. With 5 kids of course it wouldn’t! Not these delicious little morsels. My mom called these Sunburnt Fingers and my family have also always known it as Sunburnt Fingers but I have come across a couple of very similar recipes on the internet and blogs where they are called Biscuit Fudge or Chocolate Biscuit Fudge which is very descriptive of the treat.



250g Salted Butter

1 Extra Large Free Range Egg – left whole

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 pkt (200g) Biscuits – Tennis, Tea, Marie or Digestive

500g icing sugar – sifted

4 Tbs cocoa – sifted (I prefer to use NoMU brand as it is a better quality and darker than others)

Alternative flavourings – 1 tsp instant coffee or grated zest from an orange (I used one ClemenGold), 5ml Rum

Sea Salt Flakes to sprinkle



Melt the butter then whisk in the vanilla, egg then icing sugar, cocoa and whatever additional flavourings you are adding if any

Add broken up biscuits and mix together

Press into a square pie or baking dish

Sprinkle over some sea salt flakes (sparingly)

Put in the fridge to set for about an hour

Cut into squares and tuck right in!

    It’s holidays and I’m making this with my two little girls today. I made this in home economics once and fell in love, so glad to get to share this with my kids.

    Love these!
    Can I freeze them? Or how long will they last in the fridge?

    What is the icing type topping that you can put on?

    It’s not a ganache, more like a butter icing that remains soft but it setts.

      Hi Pieter I dont usually put icing on mine but I know some folk do and I would think that it would be icing sugar and cocoa mixed with a bit of water or milk and a tiny bit of soft butter. Hope that helps.
