Chocolate Fudge The Easy Way


"MM" "MM" Chocolate Fudge

This recipe is the easiest fudge recipe I have ever made. You can use chopped nuts of your choice or you can omit them. Usually I make this candy at Christmas, and sometimes for my sweetie on Valentine's Day. This exact recipe can be used if you want to make butterscotch fudge or peanut butter fudge.

Susan, I was at the store today and will be making some peanut butter fudge later on. Chocolate mint fudge sounds good. If they don't have mint chocolate chips you could always use peppermint flavoring.

It's Christmas now... Fudge! That is what my mother always made from scratch. Great recipe! :-) Butterscotch and peanut butter sounds good, but I have been craving mint chocolate - I'm pretty sure there are semi-sweet mint chocolate chips!! Woo Hoo! Thanks for sharing!

My grandmother used to make the best fudge. I've tried making it her way and it never comes out the same way as hers did.

Yum! My grandmother used to make fudge all the time for me when I was a kid. Brings back memories. My favorite used to be her peanut butter fudge.

Sounds delicious! I don't normally like nuts in my fudge. I don't typically put condensed milk in my fudge either but I guess it's not overly sweet with the semisweet chocolate chips.

This looks really good. I bought sweetened condensed milk and semisweet chocolate chips only to find that my fudge recipe doesn't use either of those, and I used up all my sugar. Thanks for this recipe. I have these ingredients!
