Fabulously fast fudge

Try this quick and easy recipe for the holidays


November 27, 2019

My recipes so far have been about tweaking foods to help make them a little more healthy, but not this week! It is getting close to the holidays and we all like to cheat a little and have a tasty treat. So, a warning to everyone, this is a full sugar, full fat and all of that recipe.

I use to think fudge was difficult. I previously only had recipes that involved a candy thermometer. I would either end up with goop or a lump of chocolaty looking substance that was too hard to chew. I remember once breaking it up and using it like a chocolaty brittle.

My sister on the other hand would make this delicious fudge. I always marveled at how perfectly it always turned out. I looked forward to her gifting me some each Christmas.

This was before the internet made finding recipes easy.

After years of begging and pleading, she finally let me in on her secret. I couldn't believe how easy it was to make this fudge. It will make it seem like you slaved over a hot stove all day.

Fabulous Fast Fudge


3 C (18 oz) Semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 (14 oz) Can sweetened condensed milk

A dash of salt

1/2 - 1C Chopped nuts

1 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract


1. Line an 8-9" pan with wax paper.

2. Melt the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and dash of salt over low heat.

3. Remove from heat. Add nuts and vanilla extract.

4. Pour into pan and let cool for 2 hours.

You can try adding different things to your fudge like dried cranberries, a dash of chili pepper or crushed candy canes for different flavors. White chocolate chips work with recipe as well.

That's it folks! Enjoy and have happy holidays!
