Simple Fudge

simple fudge

When I was growing up this was the fudge served for every holiday that called for it. I would watch Mom with eagle eyes, begging to lick the bowl clean. Once cut, it never lasted long and still doesn't in my own home.

Hands-On Time: 10 minutes
Ready In: 1 hour and 10 minutes
Yield: 36 one-inch squares


    1 can (14 ounes) sweetened condensed milk
    3 cups (1 pound) chopped chocolate (or semi-sweet chocolate chips)
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 cup finely chopped nuts


  1. Heat condensed milk in a small saucepan until hot. Remove from heat and add vanilla, salt and chocolate.
  2. Stir until chocolate melts.
  3. Stir in nuts and pour into a 9x9 pan fitted with waxed or parchment paper. Refrigerate -- covered tightly -- until firm, about 1 hour.
  4. Turn onto a cutting board and cut into squares with a sharp knife.
