Fudge is a pretty common dessert found in holiday dessert spreads. Many recipes have more than 3 ingredients, but to join my 3 ingredient series, I needed to find an easier recipe. This is it! You can make this fudge in a matter of minutes and it sets in the fridge after an hour or so. Then, just cut it in into squares and you’re done!
The original recipe uses a microwave, but I’m too afraid of burning my chocolate to use one. Instead, I used a double boiler and I came out with smooth and creamy results. You can stir nuts, fruits, toffee chips or anything you would like to add additional flavors. This time around I added some chopped walnuts, which I would definitely use again. My only suggestions are to wait to cut the squares until right before serving and make sure the fudge is tightly sealed in plastic wrap after it sets. These two steps will keep it nice and soft.
Make sure to check back Monday for the last 3 ingredient dessert!
Fudge (makes 1 8×8 pan)
14-oz semi-sweet chocolate
1 14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup walnuts, dried fruit, toffee chips, or any other mix-in (optional)
Line an 8×8 pan with aluminum foil and spray very lightly with cooking spray.
Place chocolate, sweetened condensed milk and butter in a double boiler. Stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is incorporated.
Pour mixture into the pan and smooth the top. Cover and chill until firm, about 1-2 hours. Cut into small squares before serving.
