Simple Chocolate Fudge




This fudge could not be easier to make. Other than buying it from the store, you simply can’t take any fewer steps or ingredients to come up with this delicious result of chocolate fudge. Actually, that might be incorrect: I just looked up the recipe on the website where I thought I found it and only two ingredients were used on the chocolate fudge recipe. This other recipe left out the butter.

Now that I see that, I wonder where I found my recipe? I am not sure. Anyhow, I used chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and butter. I did find that the butter was the tricky part, so maybe it would be better left out. Next time I’ll try it that way.

Here is what I did:

Ingredients:

3 cups of chocolate chips (my picture shows semi-sweet but later I added 1 cup of dark chocolate morsels as well)
1 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
¼ cup of butter

First prepare the pan. Line an 8 x 8 pan with foil. I sprayed it with Pam next. Make sure that your foil comes up over the edges by an inch or so to help you lift the fudge out of the pan later on.



Next, use a microwave-safe bowl and throw everything in. This is the step, with hindsight, that I am questioning the butter. I did not melt it on its own first and it was the last item to blend well with the mixture. Also, the final product did show some white spots from the melted butter. Don’t get me wrong, this concoction was delicious, but maybe there is something to omitting the butter.


Moving on…I put this in the microwave on Power 5 for 2 minutes. I stirred the contents then did the same thing again- another two minutes on half power. The butter still wasn’t cooperating so I gave it all a good mix together by hand. I was concerned that I had overdone the chocolate because it appeared slightly lumpy but the end result was fine.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. I smoothed it out with an offset spatula before placing it in the refrigerator for an hour or two. When you are ready to cut the fudge, pull the sides of the foil and the fudge should lift right out. Small inch-sized cubes seemed to work well for me. This fudge tastes much better than you might think for a 3-ingredient, microwave treat.

A quick note: Today I included in my mom’s Christmas card a note to tell her about this blog. I started this blog a few months back so that I could share some recipes long distance with her. I have a small collection so far and hope to add more ideas, recipes and photos in the coming months. Merry Christmas, Mom!
