The Holy Grail of Fudge!

Standard

At our house, like any house, we have our favourite foods, fruits and vegetables, and also we have our favourite unhealthy and fattening foods. Today’s post falls in the unhealthy category. I really do have to apologize in advance for sharing this recipe with you… this is by far the best tasting fudge I have ever made, but it also the easiest….OK, I have warned you, so my conscience is clear…enjoy!
Only three ingredients needed, chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla, (and if you like nuts, you can add a cup right at the end before pouring them in the pan)
Here is the link to the recipe… I am really learning that the only recipes you can be really successful with are from reliable sources like Chatelaine, Better Homes, etc. because they are tested and made in test kitchens before they are published. I was talking to one of my friends, before the holidays, about researching recipes on-line. The problem now is that there are too many opinions on-line now. You find a recipe and then if you keep searching, you find five different opinions about the recipe, and five different versions. So, I have been trying to stick with published sources. Here is the link to this recipe…

Start by melting 2 cups of chocolate chips. I melt mine in a double broiler, but you could also use the microwave.

Once the chocolate has melted, slowly pour 1/2 can of the condensed milk into the chocolate, ad add 1tsp of vanilla. Keep on the keat, stirring as you mix. If you do this too fast, it will cool the chocolate and harden it while you are trying to mix. As it is, you have to work fast.

In a 9×9 pan, line it with parchment or waxed paper, and pour the fudge in. I used another piece on top to help flatten it out.

I used a fork to score the top, not for any reason other than I like the way it looks. Let the fudge cool for about 1/2 hour in the fridge, if you can wait that long! Then take it out of the pan using the waxed paper.

And enjoy. You should keep this in the fridge, I am going to try to freeze some of it…this much fudge is my fridge is dangerous! I used a left over sushi tray to store it.

I call it my Fudge Boat Supreme! I know I have been saving those sushi containers for something!
Only one more days until our holidays are over…:(
