The flavours of chocolate and hazelnut together are an absolute classic combination and they work particularly well together in this fudge. It's also a really quick recipe that only takes about ten minutes to make, meaning that it is ideal for making for gifts. Try adding a few drops of hazelnut Irish cream liquor to add to the flavours within the fudge.
