Classic chocolate fudge is one of my favorite winter dessert, though I hardly ever treat myself to this rich chocolate. I remember making fudge with my Aunt Toni years ago, when I was just a little girl and I loved it but I haven't eaten it since. So I decided to make it for the first time from scratch, and it tastes just as good as I remember! The fudge is so much easier to make than I expected which is something I love about a recipe! You can add nuts, peppermint, cookies, peanut butter, or candy, but I enjoy just the pure original type of fudge. Just know you can mix in anything you wish after the fudge is just about done in the pot before putting into the pan.
makes about 12 squares
3 cups of chocolate chips, mixture of milk and semi sweet
1 1/2 tp vanilla
1 can sweet condensed milk
1/2c nuts, candy, etc.
Melt chocolate chips in double boiler. Remove from heat and add milk, vanilla, and nuts. Stir until it's smooth and completely mixed together. To know it's ready to be poured, it should be kinda waxy and folding itself. Spread evenly in a wax paper lined 8x8 pan, and if needed pat down with your fingers so that it will stay in place. Chill for roughly two hours or until firm.
