No more complex fudge recipes for me! Done I am with trying to make from scratch with granulated sugars, marshmellow creams, and ending up with goopy messes!

Simply using 3 ingredients and I end up with store bought fudge that all the family and friends love.

All you need is:

1 can of Condensed Sweetened Milk
3 cups of chips
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

That's it.

Here's how to do it.

Get yer one 14 ounce can of Condensed Sweetened Milk (NOT EVAPORATED MILK!):



Pour it into a sauce pan on medium heat.

Add 3 cups of your chips you want to use. A 11.5 ounce bag of chocolate chips is 2 cups, so you'll be using 1 1/2 bags:



What type you use is up to you. I've done this with Milk Chocolate, Semi-Sweet Chocolate, Special Dark Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Peanut Butter / Chocolate mix.

Constantly stir the milk and chips in the pan until it has completely melted the chips, then removed from heat.



Add 1 teaspoon of your vanilla extract:



Stir it in really good. Then pour your mixture into a pan, like a 8 inch cake pan with either wax paper or parchment paper in it:



Let set for several hours until firm. I normally will let it set for about an hour, then toss it in the fridge for a couple of hours so it will really set firmly.

Then pull out of the pan, peel away the wax paper, and cut up into bite sized chunks:



This is my favorite way of making fudge now. Easy and quite fast too.

Anyone have some of their favorite ways of making fudge?

Spicy Dark, eh??





I keep meaning to get the caramel chips and see how they come out.

Yes sir. Big fan of Mexican style chocolate, I like how a hint of pepper enhances the flavor.

Goes well with a glass of port too.

Just wanted to say yes! yes! yes!

This is the best fudge recipe I've ever found -- both easy and delicious -- and it's become a holiday favorite. I even make it as gifts for neighbors and they love it.

The one problem I've found is that it's just too easy to eat way too much

Mmmm! I can't wait to try this. But I don't have sweetened condensed milk, can I substitute pineapple juice? And I don't have chips, can I substitute vodka?

I use a can of condensed milk,5 slabs of white choc,and just let the choc get melted into the condensed milk,it hardly needs cooking.Add a tsp of vanilla essence as i take the pot off the plate.I pour it on a base of crushed Oreos i have waiting in a square tray that i sprayed with that non stick stuff,you know,you get various types.I made a thread in the food section about it some time ago.Super easy and very delish.

Damn you...now I want fudge at 10am!

Thanks for the recipe...even with my extremely limited cooking skills I can handle this one.

Hey, I'm a Type 2 diabetic, so how do you think I feel?

Still, I make goodies like this for friends and family.

Here's a true confession from me... I eat that stuff right out of the can.
I know I know... only a teaspoon....or two...
I'm going to try your recipe today.
I'm making a tray of treats for the veterans at the VFW tonight.

I put cayenne in my gingerbread cake. I top it with a lemon juice and confectioners sugar glaze.


PS but the secret secret ingredient is Chinese five spice I get at the Asian market.

Thanks for your service. My daddy and brother served.

The Navy presented us a flag for my father last year. He served at Pearl Harbor when he was seventeen years old.

Nice, thanks for the thread!
I made some dulce de leche using sweetened condensed coconut milk yesterday and some fudge would compliment those gifts really well.

I've made dulce de leche too using a crock pot and a can of condensed milk. Turned out great!

You place the can on it's side in the crock pot and put hot water in it to where the water is about 2 inches above the can. Cover and turn it on Low and let it cook for about 6 to 8 hours.

Pull it out and run cold water over it before opening it up.

Ha ha, yes I used the crockpot for my recipe! Good idea though on turning it on its side- I used 2 cans and the water was quite high.


Very easy but, even more importantly, very delicious. I plan on making a regular milk dulce de leche and giving out both (dairy free coconut and regular).

This is an evil thread. I am allergic to the protein in milk and high sugar foods trigger my reactive hypoglycemia. The fudge is not a problem if I keep eating a piece every hour, but when my crash comes at night, the next morning I have brain fog and a headache.

Totally worth it if the sweets are really good though. My wife loves those kind of things, I think she is trying to kill me. I have had hypoglycemia all my life and was informed many years ago not to overindulge by doctors and more doctors, and I have had problems all my life....I guess I am just not that smart.
But it seems that it is always so much fun breaking the rules that the doctors tell you you should follow. Being naughty is fun. Do I get a buzz from sweets.

While I love things like fudge and cookies, my actual bane is chilled fresh fruit!
