Coconut Fudge:
Preparing a delicious chocolate coconut fudge is a 5-simple-ingredients recipe without using any fancy equipment. Isn’t that incredible? The best part of the recipe is that you can double or triple the proportion for large batches, which makes it a perfect sweet bite for any party.

● Milk chocolate bar
● Condensed milk
● Shredded coconut

1. Firstly, dry roast the shredded coconut on the Nirlep Selec+ Fry Pan over medium flame for 2-3 minutes until it becomes dry, and the excess moisture evaporates.
2. Take the fry pan and add the milk chocolate pieces along with condensed milk into it.
3. Put the flame on low to medium-low and stir it frequently. This process will take around 6-7 minutes to melt the chocolate. Stir the contents until the chocolate melts completely. Switch off the flame and put the Nirlep Selec+ Fry Pan down.
4. Add the dry roasted shredded coconut into the chocolate mixture and mix it quickly.
5. Pour the mixture into a wax paper-lined box and tap the box to set the chocolate mix. Make the top even with the back of a spoon or a spatula if required. Sprinkle some extra roasted shredded coconut over the top and refrigerate it for 2-3 hours to allow it to get set.
Serve this delectable treat with a cup of tea or coffee, and enjoy.
