Ingredients

  • 3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk 1 can
  • Pinch salt
  • teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup chopped nuts optional

Directions

  1. 1. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with foil.

  2. 2. Place the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and salt in a medium saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth.

  3. 3. Remove from the heat and immediately stir in the vanilla and nuts (if using). Spread evenly in the prepared pan.

  4. 4. Refrigerate for 2 hours, or until firm. Cut into squares and serve, or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.

Recipe Notes

  • To make this fudge in the microwave, combine the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and salt in a medium glass bowl and heat for 3 minutes, stirring halfway through, then proceed with the rest of the recipe as written.
  • To make an even creamier fudge, melt 2 cups of miniature marshmallows along with the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and salt, then proceed with the rest of the recipe as written.
  • Substitute peanut butter chips for the chopped nuts.
  • Looking for a fudge recipe without sweetened condensed milk? I want to try this magical microwave fudge.
  • You can freeze fudge in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
