Chocolate Fudge The Easy Way

Updated on March 27, 2016

"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.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 25 min
Yields: 48 pieces or 2 pounds of fudge

Let's Start Cooking

  1. In a saucepan over low heat melt the chocolate chips with the Eagle Brand Condensed Milk, stirring frequently.
  2. Once the chocolate chips are entirely melted stir in the icing sugar in increments, add a pinch of salt, vanilla, and nuts.
  3. Stir mixing well.
  4. Line an 8" square pan with wax paper.
  5. Spread your fudge onto the wax paper in the pan. Pop it into the refrigerator and chill for 2 - 3 hours.
  6. Once chilled turn the fudge onto a cutting board and peel off the wax paper.
  7. With a sharp knife cut the chocolate fudge into squares.

Storing Chocolate Fudge

The fudge can be stored at room temperature in an air sealed container or kept in the fridge.

Fudge can be wrapped well and frozen for up to six weeks. Thaw at room temperature before cutting.

This recipe will make 2 pounds of chocolate 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!
