Ingredients

Instructions

  • Line an 8 inch square baking pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper, leaving a 2 inch overlap on the sides, so you can easily pull out the fudge.
  • Add the chocolate chips and condensed milk to a medium, heavy-duty saucepan. Warm over the lowest heat possible, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat. 
  • Stir in the vanilla extract, salt and nuts of your choice, if using.
  • Spread evenly into the prepared baking pan. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm. Lift from the pan and cut into squares.

Notes

What is sweetened condensed milk: It is milk that has been pasteurized and condensed and then sweetened with sugar. The sugar is what adds sweetness to the fudge and also helps to thicken it.
Storing: You can store fudge in the fridge for up to 1 month. Cut into squares, wrap in tissue and put in a box, or present in cellophane bags. Unless you're gifting them, I just store them in an airtight container in the fridge. Don't leave them on the counter for too long because the chocolate will start to melt.
Freezing: First, wrap the fridge in plastic wrap, then in aluminum foil and lastly place them in a freezer bag. Make sure to press out all the air from the bag before sealing, then place it in the freezer for another time. Frozen fudge will last several months. When you're ready to enjoy, take the wrapped fudge from the freezer and leave it at room temperature for a couple hours then it's ready to be devoured.
