    Fast and EASY Fudge

    Post by genkicoll on Mon Jan 02, 2012 8:42 pm

    FAST & EASY FUDGE:

    3 scant cups Nestles milk chocolate chips (the better the chocolate chips, the better the fudge tastes!)
    1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed (NOT evaporated) milk
    1 tsp vanilla
    * see below for more ingredient ideas

    In heavy saucepan, melt chocolate chips and condensed milk over low heat until smooth and shiny. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients.

    Spread evenly into wax paper lined 8 in square pan and chill for 2-3 hours, or until firm. Turn fudge onto cutting board, peel off paper and cut into squares.

    Store loosely at room temperature.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    *Peppermint fudge
    Use semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of milk-chocolate, and omit vanilla. Add instead 3 crushed candy canes, and stir well. Spread thinly onto wax paper-lined cookie sheet. Cut with pizza cutter when firm.

    *Maraschino Cherry fudge
    Use semi-sweet chocolate chips ONLY, and omit vanilla. Add instead 1/4 to 1/2 cup maraschino cherries cut into quarters. Be careful not to include too much of the cherry juice, as the fudge will be too soft. Wonderful! Like chocolate-covered cherries, only with FUDGE!

    *Rocky Road
    Omit 1 cup of chocolate chips, salt, vanilla & nuts. In saucepan, melt chips with condensed milk and 2 Tbs of margarine. In large bowl, combine 2 cups of your choice of nuts and one 10 1/2 oz package of mini-marshmallows.
    Pour chocolate mixture into nut mix, and stir well.

    Orange-flavored Fudge (THIS MAKES A DOUBLE BATCH!)

    - 3 bags chocolate chips (get the good ones!  Hershey or Nestle or whatever your favorite is!  The better the chips, the better-tasting the fudge will be!
    - 2 cans sweetened condensed milk
    - 1 jar Marshmallow creme
    - 1 1/2 teaspoons orange extract
    - 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    - Wax paper-lined extra-large casserole dish or pizza pan
    - Pizza cutter

    Pour condensed milk into a heavy saucepan and turn on heat to medium-low, then add chocolate chips. 

    Stir occasionally making sure that the chocolate does not stick to the bottom of the pan and get overheated. When the mixture is smooth and shiny, remove from heat.
      NOTE: This will take a while, but you're much less likely to scorch the chocolate on medium-low heat

    Scoop out most of the marshmallow creme (I didn't add all of it) and partially mix into the fudge. You want the fudge to be kind of streaked-looking. There are two reasons for this: 1) The flavorings will meld with the marshmallow creme a bit this way, and 2) You'll know that the flavorings are completely mixed in when you no longer see any streaking!

    Add in the orange extract and vanilla extract, then mix well.

    Pour into prepared pan, then place in the refrigerator to cool.

    Turn fudge onto cutting board, peel off paper, then replace the loosened paper and flip the fudge and paper so that the paper is on the bottom.

    Use a pizza cutter to cut the fudge (SO MUCH EASIER than a knife!) You can place the cut fudge back into (or on to) the pan you originally prepared it in if you're not ready to divvy out the loot Elk grin

    Once again, this makes a DOUBLE batch, but it's much easier than a single batch since you don't have to measure the chocolate chips Wink

    This sounds wonderful! I'm going to put it in my list of stuff to try for Christmas next year! I love orange and chocolate together. Yummy!

    Thank You
