The Best Bad-For-You Fudge Ever

I've been trying to make goodies to make over to the neighbors but for some reason everything seems to be disappearing before I can even get it on the plate. So last night I was in the kitchen until late getting a bunch of stuff made! This fudge recipe is easy, only a few ingredients and so yummy. You could even try adding in marshmallows or topping it with various candies. Be creative! Or just eat it.....:)

What you need:

  • 1/2 c. cream
  • can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 c. chocolate chips(I used milk chocolate)
  • 4 squares unsweetened chocolate(4 oz)
  • vanilla extract

 

In a sauce pan, warm the cream and the sweetened condensed milk. Stir continually and do not boil.

 

Once the milk mixture is warmed almost to the boiling point, remove it from the heat and add in the chocolates. Stir well. Return to heat to make sure all the chocolate had melted and is smooth and creamy.

 

Pour into a very well greased pan or a pan lined with wax paper or tin foil. Let it cool overnight or for several hours until it's set up.

Yum. Chocolate. Yum.

My four year old daughter and I just whipped up a batch of fudge…and are licking the bowl clean. We can’t wait for the fudge to cool! Thanks for sharing another awesome recipe! :)

I’m not sure Karen. If all the instructions were followed it should have turned out. Did you use any different ingredients?

More then likely you didn’t heat it to the right temp. Another thing to remember about fudge that I learned from my Grandmother is “Low and slow” so don’t try to do it on high heat it will not work. Hope this helps!

How could I adapt this to make different flavors? If I add peanut butter will it change the consistency?

You cannot substitute cream or anything else for sweetened condensed milk. Borden’s is the most popular brand of sweetened condensed milk.

Do you let it cool at room temp on the kitchen counter, or do you put it in the fridge to cool?

Reply

15 Merissa December 5, 2013 at 8:01 am

You could do either, but putting it in the fridge will speed up the process! :)

Hi, I live in the UK, I have just been reading your wonderful fudge recipe, can you tell me if your measurements are I cup sizes, we use metric sizes here, and I didn’t want to add too much or too little, thank you. Lynn.

Yes, these are all in cup sizes.

Oh… Fudge, how I love thee…

But I gotta ask about the serving plate… Is that a flattened blue mason jar? Because it is way. too. cool.

It is! I found it on Etsy several years ago :)

I am interested in the dish you have your fudge on. Is that a melted mason jar? Did you make that or find it?

Yes it is! I found it on Etsy a couple years ago.
