Steve’s Eats: “Healthy Fudge”- A Little Christmas Treat

It’s that time of year where I Iook to make my friends and family some Christmas treats. So this weekend I’m smashing out my “Healthy” Christmas fudge.

Thanks to an amazing company Munchy Seeds  for providing me with some samples- from these samples, I have devised this recipe. Which I know like Des and his daughter Emily, you will all enjoy.




600g caster sugar

300g double cream

50g butter

200g glucose

260g dark chocolate

150g dried cranberries

300g roasted hazelnuts

125g super berry seeds


For best results, I find a baking tray 28cm long x 18cm wide x 3cm deep works well.

Cook the sugar, butter, glucose and cream to 121*c. A sugar thermometer or temperature probe is best for accurate results. Turn off the heat and add the chocolate, cranberries and hazelnuts.

Pour into a tray. When half set (soft to the touch) spread over the super berry seeds and gently press into the fudge. Level with a spatula and gently press the seeds in evenly. Clingfilm and put into the fridge to set overnight. 

Bring out of the fridge and allow to come to room temperature. Cut with a sharp knife I generally go with 3cm cubes, chill the individual pieces in an airtight container, or enjoy straight away.
