Lunch Bar Fudge Blocks Anel Potgieter

Did you know that the “Much more munch” Lunch Bar was the top-selling chocolate in South Africa in 2017? I must say I find this chocolate treat a little hard but the “eye-popping” packaging and its size must certainly drive up sales. However, I am still in two minds – I normally go for a Crunchie or TV-Bar (the white chocolate one), but when I am hungry and standing in the chocolate isle I must confess I do go for the biggest bar (yes! 🙂 ) and that’s normally the Lunch Bar or one of those huge Bar Ones.

With a few Lunch Bars in hand I decided to make an easy five ingredient lunch bar treat. Not wanting to linger too long in making this, I decided to go the quick microwave route.

Easy way to break the Lunch Bars for the recipe: I wrapped the bars in plastic and gave them a good few whacks with my rolling pin.

  • 250 g butter
  • 500 g icing sugar
  • 40 g cocoa
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 ml vanilla essence
  • 300 g Lunch Bars of your choice (I used the white chocolate ones)
  1. Line a 20 cm x 20 cm pan or baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Place the butter in a mixing bowl and microwave at 100% power for about 1 ½ minute or until melted.
  3. Sift the icing sugar and cocoa together and mix this in with the melted butter.
  4. Beat the eggs and mix this and the vanilla into the mixture.
  5. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir well and microwave for a further minute.
  6. Remove and place in refrigerator for 10 minutes to cool. This is important otherwise your chocolate is just going to melt!
  7. Put the Lunch Bars in a plastic bag and whack these into crumbled pieces (not too small) with a roller pin. Test whether your chocolate mixture has already cooled down. It should not be too hot.
  8. Stir the broken lunch bars into the chocolate mixture.
  9. Scoop the mixture into the baking tray and then place in refrigerator to cool completely before cutting into blocks.
