Is Fudge everywhere during the holidays or is it just me? I remember at my past jobs people would make fudge during potlucks or even make goodie bags with fudge to give out as little gifts. I love fudge, but I never made it before. I was at Michael’s the craft store the other day and ran across these Christmas theme candy molds & I thought they would be perfect for the fudge I wanted to make. They were very inexpensive & I was able to use a coupon , they don’t have the same one I bought online but they have this cute snowman one:
There are so many different fudge recipes you could try, and so many add in’s you could really pick & choose. I wanted to do the simplest just in case I messed up.. since I never tried it before, lol. I had some walnuts at home so I added those into my fudge.
- 1 cup of semi- sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- Any add ins; I did walnuts ( peanuts, coconut pieces, any candy pieces, etc )
Grab your saucepan , a lot of recipes say you use a broiler. I just put my heat to the lowest setting.. this is so your chocolate doesn’t burn. Place your condensed milk first, add your chocolate chips and then vanilla. Keep stirring and watch so it does not burn or bubble. Once it melts all the way put your add ins and stir then its ready to be put into your greased pan or candy molds. Put in the refrigerator for an 1 or 2. Your all done easy peazy!
The molds came out pretty well, I think the images could have came out a little better but all in all I thought it was going to be much harder or that I would burn the chocolate. Lol, it was a success and we all enjoyed it! It doesn’t taste to rich or chocolaty, its very smooth and the walnuts give it a little crunch. I definitely want to try to do peanut butter fudge next time 😊
Comment below if you like fudge or if you have maybe your own recipe. If you try this let me know how it comes out!
