This is the easiest fudge recipe I have ever made. The only cooking involves melting chocolate in the microwave. I make this every year around the holidays and give it to friends who love it. It’s addictive!
To make a big double batch, you will need the following (for a single batch, just make half of this):
- 3 bags of semi-sweet chocolate chips (12 oz each)
- 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk (14 oz each)
- 4 tsp. vanilla
- 3 cups chopped walnuts (don’t chop them too small. I buy them pre-chopped
Mix condensed milk and chocolate in a large microwavable bowl (glass is much better than plastic in this case). Microwave it on high about 2-3 minutes until chocolate is almost melted stirring once halfway through. Continue to stir until it is completely melted. Add vanilla and walnuts. Spread into a large 9×13 brownie pan sprayed lightly with cooking oil. Refrigerate several hours until firm.
When firm, remove entire thing from pan and cut into small squares using a sharp knife on a cutting board (bite sized, about half inch to an inch across). You may want to let it sit at room temp for a few minutes before cutting.
Fudge can be stored at room temperature in air tight containers or you can keep it in the fridge. I have had great success mailing these treats to friends in air tight containers.
