Easy Peasy Fudge

I think this was the first time I have made fudge. This recipe is so simple and so good. I can't hardly stay out of it. You can make this without the nuts.

3 cups of  semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick), cut into small pieces
1 cup chopped walnuts

Spray an 8x8 inch pan with cooking spray. Cut 2 pieces of wax or parchment paper long enough to extend outside the pan. Place them in the pan criss-crossed (this will create "handles" that make it easier to remove them form the pan).

Place the chocolate chips, condensed milk, and butter in a double boiler over a pan of shallow water on low heat. Melt the mixture, stirring occasionally.

Remove from the heat and stir in the nuts.

Pour into the prepared pan and refrigerate for 2 hours or more. Remove from the pan by gently lifting the handles of the wax paper. Cut into pieces with a sharp knife.

  1. OMG - it *can't* be that easy to make delicious fudge?!

    (Or could it?)

    Sounds tasty -- dangerously so ;-)

    I've been on a muffin-making binge myself -- cranberry muffins, blueberry muffins, mixed berry muffins, raspberry muffins and - the piece de resistance - banana-walnut muffins!

    But with some leftover walnuts, your fudge recipe is sounding mighty tempting...

  2. That recipe looks amazing, and very tempting..

  3. Try it again with dried cherries....

  4. Wow, that recipe sounds very easy and delicious. Perhaps I'll give my "stirring constantly" arm a break and try this instead. It also doesn't sound as sugary sweet as some fudge. Thanks for this!

  5. I found an easy one and an easy peanut butter one that my hubs has asked me to make about 5 times over the last 2weeks. quick and easy! Happy New Year!
