Prepare to be amazed! This is the most incredible, and insanely easy fudge recipe that you will ever encounter. No joke
So about 10 years ago my awesome older sister Melissa shared this awesome recipe with me. It is so incredibly simple that even the most novice of cooks could make it. Which, I'm sure, is what my sister was thinking when she shared. Just kidding.
Super Easy Fudge:
1 bag of semi sweet chocolate chips (milk chocolate works too)
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 cup of peanut butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Assemble all your ingredients, and have them close at hand. Once you start this recipe progresses very quickly.
Place your chocolate chips in a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Be mindful of the heat.
This next step is very important. Keep your husband's grubby fingers OUT of the chocolate, or there will be no fudge.
After you get the chocolate chips in there toss in the peanut butter.
Continue to stir together until fully melted and smooth. Then remove from heat.
Stir in the nuts. It will look delightfully lumpy.
Then its time to stir in the sweetened condensed milk.
Thoroughly mix in the condensed milk into the chocolate mixture.
Then pour into a square pan to cool in the fridge. After a few hours you will be in business, or you could simple put a small portion in a bowl to sample while the bulk cools in the fridge. Not that that is what I did or anything, but that would be a way to get to snack immediately.
This recipe works with milk chocolate fine, but I personally prefer darker chocolate to straight up milk chocolate so that is what I use. I also am not a huge fan of overly sweet treats so the presence of the peanut butter helps tone down the chocolate and the sweetened condensed milk.
So enjoy and Happy Eating!
