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.
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!
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.
