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.

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.

    1. Hi Bonnie! The sugar-free chocolate should definitely work and while Eagle Brand suggests only using regular sweetened condensed milk for fudge and candies, other people seem to have substituted low-fat or even sugar-free versions and still had success. So I’d say it could be worth a try! For a simple single serving of “healthy” fudge, I often just blend together cocoa powder, coconut oil and either stevia or a little maple syrup to my desired firmness. Quick and delicious when I want a chocolate fix! :)

  1. I made this over Christmas with dark chocolate and semi-sweet and added some marshmallows and it was a hit. It was so easy I will definitely be making this again!!

    1. I haven’t heard of chocolate sweetened condensed milk but oh my gosh, that sounds AMAZING! I’m sure it would totally add an extra bit of chocolatey goodness to the fudge! :

  2. Hi! I have a silly question. I bought the ingredients for the fudge and the sweetened condensed milk is in a 14 fl ounce can how does that work when the recipe calls for 10 oz?

    1. Hi Jattra! Please forgive my delayed response, I was offline over the holidays. :) I’m in Canada, where a can of sweetened condensed milk is 300 ml, or 10 oz. So if you have the larger 14 oz. can, I would just measure out 1 1/4 cups of sweetened condensed milk for this recipe and save the leftovers for another recipe. (Or just stir it into coffee; it’s delicious!)

      1. Yes, the nice thing about sweetened condensed milk is that it’s a little forgiving, so you can get away with adding more of it and still get great results. :)

    1. Hi Rosemary, sorry for the delayed response! What I like to do is gently fold marshmallows into the fudge, or even just press them into it, when pouring it into the pan. That way I get chunks of marshmallow in every bite. With chopped walnuts added as well, it’s a tasty Rocky Road. :) (The marshmallows will melt a bit but still stay somewhat separate from the fudge.)

    1. Hi Hannah! It fills an 8″ or 9″ square pan perfectly, and then I usually cut it into 1″ squares. So with an 8″ pan you should get about 64 pieces. If I had to guess, I’d say it’s probably about 2 lbs of fudge in all. Hope this helps!

                1. Bonjour Mireille! 10 oz. est de 300 ml (300 g). 3 tasses de pépites de chocolat est de 750 ml. Pardonnes toute erreur dans ma frappe; je ne parle pas très bien le français. Merci d’avoir lu mon blog!

            2. Hi do you have a recipe for diabetic fudge?
              Can you use milk diabetic chocolate? Not sure if sweet condensed milk is allowed

              1. Hi Jane! Most sugar-free chocolate can usually be used without issue in this recipe. For the sweetened condensed milk, the safest bet might be to make your own. Most people that use this recipe seem to find that it produces the same results as regular sweetened condensed milk. http://www.geniuskitchen.com/recipe/sweetened-condensed-milk-substitute-for-diabetics-143017 I can’t guarantee that it will work perfectly, but it sounds like it should. :) I’d love to hear how it turns out if you give it a try!

    1. Hi Mandy! It’s a great Christmas gift for sure! :) It keeps great in the freezer for months, and then can just be thawed and packaged for gifts. At room temperature, the fudge will last 1-2 weeks on average. It doesn’t really go bad because of the high level of sugar, but does dry out left at room temperature too long, so I definitely recommend freezing it if you’re going to use it as a gift later. Hope this helps!

  3. This is my preferred method for making fudge, the old cocoa recipe just flubs up royally when the humidity is off and just BLECH too much hassle! I love doing Peanut Butter Fudge this way, too, 2 bags Reese’s PB Chips to one can of Sweetened Condensed Milk. OMG or just this morning I made Dark and Milk Chocolate Fudge with 1 and 1/4 cans Sweetened Condensed Milk, 10 oz bag of Dark Chocolate Chips and a 10 oz bag of Andes Creme De Menthe Baking Chips…so much YUM

    1. Oh my gosh, I LOVE the idea of using Andes Crème de Menthe chips! <3 I usually just add a bit of peppermint extract at times but using the mint chips would definitely add some extra wow. I totally agree; I still make the old cocoa fudge every once in a while when I'm nostalgic, but this is SO much easier and so delicious! :)
