Chocolate fudge for a Rugby Party

Today we want to share a recipe for these yummy rugby party chocolate fudge treats that we made recently.  They would be perfect for a rugby league, rugby union or soccer party. They turned out really cool and tasted divine.

Fudge is ridiculously easy and quick to make so we set out to create a footy field with a dark chocolate ‘dirt’ layer topped with a green coloured layer for our grass. We added almond footballs and a corner post flag give it a cool footy feel.

Before we get to the recipe I have to give a shout out to my assistants/eaters  Miss Ruby,  Miss Atiria and Miss Elizabeth who helped me out along the way.

 Ingredients and supplies


  • 1 can condensed milk (395 grams)
  • 2 cups dark chocolate melts
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate melts
  • green food coloring
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 50 grams white chocolate melts


  • almonds
  • white and dark chocolate melts


  • Toothpicks
  • Washi Tape  – if you dont have washi tape you can use patterned paper and gluestick – We get our tape from Washi lane
  • Scissors


  1. Use baking paper line a 20cm square baking pan, ensure the baking paper is overlapping the sides of the pan. Set aside.
  2. Over a low heat, melt 200 mls of the condensed milk in a heavy based pan together with the dark chocolate melts and 1 Tablespoon over. Stir to combine.
  3. Spread the combined mixture evenly into the lined pan and pop it in the fridge for 10 minutes to cool and firm up.
  4. Melt the remaining condensed milk in a pan with the white chocolate and butter over a low heat. Stir to combine
  5. Add a few drops of food coloring to colour the mixture and mix well with a wooden spoon. I used about 6 drops of colouring
  6. Spread the mixture evenly over the bottom layer.
  7. Refrigerate for at least a couple of hours.
  8. Cut in to 4cm squares and remove from the baking pan.


Now you have your fudge squares with a chocolate dirt layer and the top grass layer. You’ll need to decorate them and top them with a Tryline, corner flag and of course the football.

Try Line

First you’ll create a try line by piping a thin line of white chocolate across the fudge square

  1. Place 30 grams of white chocolate melts in a small microwave safe bowl/dish. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir.  Microwave for a further 15 seconds at a time stirring each time until chocolate has melted completely.
  2. pour chocolate into a small ziplock bag and snip of a tiny corner.
  3. Pipe the white chocolate along the top of each fudge square about a third of the way down.
  4. Set aside to cool

Chocolate covered almond footballs

Make little footballs by dipping almonds into melted white chocolate then piping on the stitching lines with melted dark chocolate.

  1. Melt about half a cup of white chocolate in a small microwave proof bowl, similar to the method above.
  2. Stab an almond with the tip of a toothpick and dip the almond into the melted chocolate. Cover it completely, pull it out, give it a swirl or two until excess chocolate drips off.
  3. Pop it onto sheet of baking paper then into the fridge for 10 minutes to set.
  4. Melt some dark chocolate and pour into a ziplock bag
  5. Snip off a tiny corner of the bag then carefully pipe the football lines onto the almond ball.

 Corner post toothpick flags

Stick a corner flag into the fudge and you’re set. We made the flag toppers with washi tape and a toothpick. We put together a little picture tutorial to show you how to make your own corner post flags. If you don’t have any washi tape you can use any patterned paper and a glue stick.

Make cute cupcake or fudge toppers with toothpick and washi tape.

There you have it. One super cool rugby party food idea.
