When I end up in touristy destinations I’m always suckered in by the sweet aroma of fresh fudge. There are so many amazing varieties, and I’m almost always convinced I want to buy some peanut butter fudge. Granted, most of the time Peter talks me out of it because a.) it’s usually overpriced and b.) it’s not exactly a health food.
I’ll fully admit that fudge is not a healthy food. But I will also fully admit that is completely and utterly delicious.
This fudge is even better because it’s so darn simple. If you’re looking for a quick dessert for a potluck, for a gift, or just for yourself to totally overindulge, then I’d recommend this fudge. It has 2 ingredients. That’s it. It’s the best (or worst, depending on how you look at it) dessert ever.
I published the recipe originally over here on Mother’s Day in 2009. You can bet that I made it this past Father’s Day for one happy father of mine! It’s a winner – which is why I’m re-publishing the recipe for you. It’s because I love you. And you’ll love me even more when you try this fudge. You’re welcome.
- 1 can of condensed milk
- 3 cups of chocolate chip
Line a 9×9 or 8×8 pan with wax paper. Melt the chocolate and milk together in a saucepan on low heat, stirring constantly.
If desired, add 1 cup nuts, raisins or craisins. Stir in when the above mixture is pretty much melted. Or flavour with vanilla, peppermint, orange, etc. Or, add in 1/2 cup of peanut butter while it’s still in the pot just before pouring it into the pan.
Cool and cut into pieces.
