Two Sisters Times Two, Serial #41 and Easy Chocolate Fudge

Posted on

Ahh, it’s finally Christmas–Christmas Eve, anyway (or Christmas Day maybe, if you’re bored after all the presents have been opened and you’re checking your e-mail from the last few days for something to occupy your time). Either way, probably the last thing you want to think about now is more sweets, whether preparing them or eating them. I mean, those tins of Christmas cookies (all five hundred of them!) will get finished up around the Fourth of July, right?

But–there is life after Christmas.

You will want to cook again. And you will want to indulge yourself with a little treat one night soon when you don’t have anything to do and just feel like curling up with something to read and a freshly made sweet. Who knows–such an occasion may come along sooner than you think. Like tomorrow night, after all the family has gone home; or sometime next week, when you’ve taken time off but have a break between activities.

Whenever such an occasion comes along, Reading and Recipes will be there with this Easy Chocolate Fudge recipe. It provides about the easiest and quickest gratification of any candy recipe you can find–just mix the ingredients together, cool it down, and eat! Doesn’t get much easier than that.

You will want a sweet treat again, guaranteed. Bookmark this page to have it ready when you do.

Merry Christmas!!!!

three ingredient fudge

Easy Chocolate Fudge

1/2 can sweetened condensed milk*

6 ounces (about 1 cup) semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract**

Line a 5×7 pan with aluminum foil and lightly spray with cooking spray. Set aside.

Add the condensed milk and chocolate chips to a saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, or until the chocolate is melted. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.

Pour mixture into prepared pan. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until set. Remove the fudge from the pan and cut into squares. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Makes 8-12 squares.

*Use the other half of the can to make this.

**Feel free to use peppermint extract, hazelnut liqueur, orange extract, or any other flavoring agent in lieu of vanilla. Adjust amount based on potency of extract you use. Start with 1/2 teaspoon; taste and gradually add more until it is to your liking.
