Easiest Ever Fudge


When I first came across this recipe, I had my doubts. Four ingredients? No candy thermometer? Done in minutes? It didn't seem possible this fudge could stack up against the kind I'd enjoyed at the boardwalk for years. However, I'm happy to report that this fudge holds its own. I have used this recipe for two years now, and my various taste testers have given it a huge thumbs up. It's now the only fudge I make. If desired, chopped nuts can be added. Personally, I prefer a smooth square I can let melt in my mouth and have written up the recipe accordingly.

EASIEST EVER FUDGE
  • 3 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • dash salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1. Line an 8 x 8 inch metal pan with aluminum foil.

2. In a medium sauce pan, combine the chocolate chips with the condensed milk and salt. Heat over low until chocolate melts, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Fudge mixture should be smooth and gloss. Spread fudge mixture in prepared pan.

3. Allow fudge to cool in refrigerator for at least 2 hours. To cut, lift foil out of pan and then peel off of fudge. Cut fudge into 64 small squares. Keep refrigerated in an air-tight container.

  2. Sweetened condensed milk is like magic. It makes everything perfect. My much requested cheesecakes are a testament to s.c. milk. Your fudge looks great! Thanks for sharing.

  14. What a lovely looking fudge and so much easier than the other ones that require a candy thermometer. I have a sweet treat linky party every weekend from Friday to Monday and I would love it if you'd come by then and link your fudge up. http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com

  20. I clicked over from LBR...for your irresistable fudge recipe...loved to read the "about me" section, your very demanding cat...well, I have two cats, and one is very demanding, the other is quite mellow! The fudge recipe is awesome, I happen to have all the ingredients on hand, and will try out, and link it back to you!
    Happy to be your newest follower:DDD

  23. I love this fudge recipe! And it's soooo delicious, it almost feels like cheating when you know it took no time to make. But if you're me you just eat another piece of fudge and get over it. ;)
