Another batch of 3 ingredients recipes for you to try! This time we have double chocolate nut fudge, beef chilli dip, a gnocchi broccoli bake & refreshingly zingy kiwi fruit and lemonade drink! These super simple recipes work a charm… oh & if you want more inspiration / ideas before we get going…. here’s the 3 ingredient recipe section of the website with all the others to date!

Kiwi & berry lemonade

For this one grab your peeled kiwi fruit, add it to a high powered blender with 250ml of the lemonade, also add the ice if using, whizz up until fully blended. In a jug make the cordial by adding the remaining 750ml lemonade with the blackcurrant cordial. Pour some of the whizzed up kiwi into a serving glass and slowly pour the blackcurrant over the top, the kiwi should separate and float to the top! Serve cold, best made and drank fresh so keep chilled if not using immediately separately.

Cheesy beef chilli dip

Grab a small baking dish, dollop down the cream cheese into the bottom of it and spread around the base fully with the back of a spoon. Add a tin of beef chilli on top of the cream cheese, then top with the grated cheese. Bake for 15 minutes at 350f or equivalent, or until the cheese is gooey. Best served with tortilla chips alongside to dunk in! This can be made ahead and frozen / chilled before a party etc

Gnocchi broccoli

Get a large saucepan and add both the tins of soup to it. Fill one empty tin with water and add that to the pan too… I did this mainly because I used a thick soup. Once it starts simmering, turn it down to a low heat and add the gnocchi, cooking for 5 minutes (or package instructions), then add the broccoli and cook / stir through gently simmering for a further 5 minutes. It’s nice to aim for a slightly thicker texture so the aim is to reduce it down slightly, you can always add less water / more water if you want the soup thinner. Serve with a bread roll.

Double chocolate nut fudge

Line a 20cm square tin with baking parchment. In a microwave safe bowl add the chocolate and condensed milk, microwave on 30 second blasts stirring in between until smooth and merged together. Push this into the lined tin and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes. Meanwhile place your peanut butter into another microwaveable bowl or jug and warm again on 30 second blasts to make it smooth & spreadable. Pour the warmed peanut butter on top of the chocolate and refrigerate for at least 90 minutes, it needs a good set and to stay cold so keep in the fridge if you aren’t eating (I mean sharing of course!) it all.
