What are the holidays without fudge? Not complete, that’s what I say. Today, I’m sharing a chocolate fudge recipe that couldn’t be easier. In fact, you can even make it in your microwave. It’s practically foolproof, and the best part of it is that you can use it as a base recipe to create your own favorite fudge concoctions. (See ideas below the recipe.) I love to box it up in decorated takeout boxes and give it as gifts. Try it for yourself and make your holiday complete.
Easy Chocolate Fudge
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup butter, sliced into pats
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
Line an 8×8 pan with tin foil, then spray it with non-stick cooking spray. In a double boiler over medium heat, melt the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and butter together, stirring frequently until mixture is creamy and smooth. (Microwave option: Heat the same ingredients in a microwave safe bowl on high heat, stirring after every 30 seconds until mixture is creamy and smooth.) Stir in vanilla and salt until completely combined. Transfer mixture to the lined pan and spread it evenly in the pan. Add optional toppings then refrigerate for at least two hours before cutting and serving.
