Not only is homemade fudge a delicious addition to any Christmas candy plate or holiday spread–it’s really easy to make. Here’s a simple version:
- 3 cups chocolate chips (milk chocolate or semi-sweet, as you prefer)
- 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
- Dash salt
- 1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans–I recommend the latter)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Line 9-in square pan with waxed paper. Melt chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and salt together in saucepan. Turn off heat. Stir in chopped nuts and vanilla. Spread in wax paper-lined pan. Refrigerate 2 hours or until cooled. Use wax paper to remove from pan. Cut into squares or diamonds. Refrigerate until eating or gifting.
