Fudge... there are so many recipes. Old-Fashioned Chocolate Fudge requires cooking to 234 degrees on a candy thermometer then cooling to 110 degrees. Next, it requires beating until thick, about 15 minutes. Too fussy. Marshmallow Creme Chocolate Fudge only requires melting the ingredients then allowing them to harden on their own, but the ingredient list is a bit long- sugar, butter, evaporated milk, marshmallow creme, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and vanilla. Still too fussy. My daughter, Heather, and her two year-old son made "Easy Fudge" with just two ingredients: semi-sweet chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk. A while ago, they boxed some up along with the recipe and sent it to Dick because he loves chocolate in any form. It solidifies perfectly, is so smooth, and the flavor is scrumptious. I made a batch today before Dick finished off all of the chocolate chips in the freezer.
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 – 14 oz can organic sweetened condensed milk
Mix together chocolate, condensed milk, and salt in a saucepan. (I used a double boiler.) Melt over low heat. Mix nuts into melted mixture. Pour into a buttered pan. Allow mixture to harden.
