Traditional, old-fashioned stovetop chocolate fudge is not that hard to make. One day I’ll prove that by posting a recipe and tutorial. But the process is a little time consuming.
And there are days that you don’t want to wait for your delicious homemade concoction to boil, set and cool to creamy perfection. There are days that you just want to bite into a decadent piece of melt-in-your-mouth goodness as quickly as possible.
At times like that, this recipe is all you need. Chocolate bliss is just two ingredients and two steps away.
As quick as you can mix your favourite chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk, you’re ready to enjoy some creamy, dreamy fudge. And the variations of this recipe are pretty much limitless. Use dark chocolate chips and stir in a cup of walnuts before spreading the fudge into the pan, or use white chocolate chips and coconut extract for a tropical treat. I added one teaspoon of peppermint extract to my fudge to satisfy my craving for mint chocolate.
Pecans, crumbled cookies, raisins or crushed candy canes can all be stirred into your fudge before it’s pressed into the pan to set. The end result is always perfect and will satisfy the cravings of the most die-hard chocoholic. With fudge this easy, you may never want to bother with traditional stovetop fudge!
