This Is My Deliciously Easy Fudge Recipe

Can you eat fudge any day of the year! I sure can.  With the holiday season upon us it just makes it that much more excusable right?!  I just finished making my absolute favorite fudge.There’s no baking, no stove top work, just a microwave for a few minutes and you’ll have deliciously smooth fudge!

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Bake time:  0 (Refrigerate overnight)

Ingredients:

3 cups/24 oz. semi-sweet baking chocolate or chips         1/4 cup butter

1 – 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk    1/2 tsp. vanilla extract         *1 cup walnuts (*optional)

Directions:

I have made this recipe with both baking chocolate and chocolate chips. The difference I noticed was using the chocolate chips I found I needed to mix longer to get it smooth and blended.  Otherwise it tasted the same.

Butter a 9 x 13 baking dish. Set aside.

In a medium bowl add semi-sweet chocolate, butter and sweetened condensed milk.

Put the bowl in the microwave at 75% power for one minute.  Open the microwave and stir the chocolate to mix with the butter and condensed milk.

Continue microwaving at 75% power for one minute, then stirring, then another minute and stirring, etc. until the chocolate is melted.

*I like to use my beaters set at medium when I add a dash of vanilla extract and blend until smooth.  Then I stir in the walnuts by hand.

Some people prefer mixing by hand with a wooden spoon.  That works too.  It’s up to you what you prefer.

Now pour mixture into the buttered baking dish and smooth the top with a spatula.

Refrigerate overnight or at least a couple of hours until firm.

Enjoy!
