I’ve been making a whole lot of fudge as Christmas gifts for people and figured I would make a how to video of the process I use. It makes quick and easy shareable desserts. You can use pretty much any other flavored chip in the second step, the sky is the limit, go wild!

Update- I’ve been informed it’s technically ganache, but it fills the same role. Still delicious and quick.

Original:
Ingredients:
18 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk (I use Eagle brand)
dash of salt
1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract (I use Watkins double-strength; 1 for double strength, 2 for single-strength)
1/2 cup of chopped nuts (optional)

Utensils/containers:
Measuring cup
Silicone spatula
Bowl that can hold at least four cups of liquid
9×9 pan. Line with wax paper.

Mix the semi-sweet chocolate chips and the condensed milk in a bowl. I have a 1500W microwave, and after one minute at high heat, the chocolate is melting nicely. Be careful not to overheat, because that tends to burn the chocolate. It usually won’t be obvious that the chocolate is melting until you stir it. If one minute isn’t enough, heat for another minute at a time.

Once the chocolate and condensed milk mix, add the salt and vanilla (and nuts if you are using them) and stir some more to help blend them. Turn out into the wax-paper-lined pan. Chill in the refrigerator, but it should survive storage at room temperature. It typically takes several hours to cool.

Cut into chunks and serve. You can serve cold, but it melts better in the mouth when at room temperature.

With butterscotch:
Ingredients:
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 ounces butterscotch chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk (I use Eagle brand)
dash of salt
2-4 teaspoons vanilla extract (I use Watkins double-strength; 2 for double strength, 4 for single-strength)
1/2 cup of chopped nuts (optional)

Utensils/containers:
Same as above.

If you want the look of nuts, mix in the butterscotch chips as is or with a little chopping. If you want the butterscotch to be non-obvious, chop it thoroughly. I have good luck when I freeze it, then use my blender to chop the frozen chips.

Prepare the chocolate as above, leaving the butterscotch out for now. Once the chocolate and condensed milk are mixed, add in the butterscotch chips or powder. Stir to mix the butterscotch in. Heat for another 30 seconds (1500W microwave) or minute (1200W microwave). Add the salt and vanilla (and nuts if you are using them). Heat again if necessary. Turn out into the wax-paper-lined pan. Chill for several hours to solidify, allow to warm to room temperature, cut, and serve.
