White Chocolate Raspberry Fudge

Standard

I have made this fudge recipe before, but a couple weeks ago, for Valentine’s day, I decided to make a slight variation using white chocolate.
You need three ingredients:
2 cups of chocolate, 1 can of eaglebrand sweetened condensed milk, 2 tablespoons of butter

Start by pouring the whole can of eaglebrand into double broiler and mix in chocolate. As you can see, my double broiler is a pyrex bowl that fits on top of one of my pots.
Be sure to stir constantly, as the chocolate on the bottom will melt faster.

Stir until everything has melted, and the fudge has a shiny look.

Then, just because I was feeling a little adventureous, I decided to add a little raspberry flavour. I used the candy flavouring you can buy in Bulk Barn.

Then, you have to work quickly before the fudge hardens, and pour it into the pan. I lined the pan with parchment paper. I have learned the hard way that the fudge doesn’t always come out of the pan easily.

As you can see, because the pan I used was a little too big, I wedged in a container to make it a little smaller.

Then, put it into the fridge and let it harden for a couple hours. Once it has hardened, lift it out of the pan using the parchment paper.

Then cut it into squares. I tend to cut the squares into smaller squares. I like it when you can eat a smaller piece all in one bite, that way you don’t have to deal with melted chocolate and sticky fingers. And… You can eat twice as many without feeling guilty…lol.

The raspberry flavour tasted pretty good. I would try another flavour. I would also love to try using orange chocolate!
Anyways, enjoy!

Three ingredient fudge

Standard

Like the title of my post said, this recipe has only three ingredients… 2 tablespoons of butter, 2 cups of chocolate, and 1 can of sweetened condensed milk. And, it is ridiculously easy to make….you just melt the chocolate, then mix everything together. So the other night, when I had a craving for fudge, it was actually faster for me to whip up a batch than to drive 5 minutes to the Chocolate Factory (for real…there is a Chocolate Factory Store five minutes away from us, on Main Street… we are regular customers) So after I put the kids to bed, I went straight to the kitchen…
Anyways, for those of you poor unfortunate souls who don’t have a Chocolate Factory five minutes away, here’s a recipe.

Dump everything in a pot and melt on low heat. I ended up using a cup of milk chocolate pieces, and I added a cup of semisweet chocolate chips. I also added two tablespoons of butter.

20131014-201209.jpg
I lined the pan with parchment paper first. (That way it would take less time to get it out of the pan and eat it. That’s me, planning and thinking ahead for the future!)

20131014-201600.jpg
Here it is, melted. If you can actually wait until it has melted to taste it, try a spoonful…(come on, like you weren’t thinking about it already)

20131014-201823.jpg
Then once you have mixed everything together, pour it into a pan….

20131014-201918.jpg
Now, here is the part I didn’t really think through before I made my decision not to get in the car to pick up fudge…you have to wait for it to harden! Dang.
The recipe says 2 hours, but I can tell you now that 2 hours of cooling time didn’t happen. Its good to eat after an hour, even if it is a little gooey!

This recipe turned out so well, that I had to share some with friends, and bring some to work to share! Yes, that is how little will power I have…
Anyways, it is by far the best fudge recipe I have tried, and also the easiest! Enjoy

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.

20130105-082924.jpg
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.

Cut it into squares….

20130105-083557.jpg
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…:(
