Method

In a large glass bowl, mix together the chocolate pieces and the condensed milk. Place in a microwave for 30 seconds, beat the chocolate and milk and repeat using the microwave to melt the chocolate in 30 second intervals. Better to melt any last lumps of chocolate by mixing with a wooden spoon than over microwaving and burning the chocolate.

Line a small baking tray with parchment. Pour the mix into the tray, bang the tray a few times, to even out the mix. If you are adding any decorations do this now. Cover with cling film and place in the fridge overnight.

Once set, you can cut into squares. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve
