Super easy chocolate fudge - you'll want to eat all of it

I can eat fudge by the pound. I'm {certainly} not proud of that, but hey, at almost 40 weeks pregnant? I do what I want ;)

Back in Madison I was sort of famous for my fudge amongst Mike's lab mates. They asked for it quite often and I was happy to oblige every now and then. That is, when I didn't eat all of it first! This recipe doesn't require a candy thermometer or even a watchful eye so it is just perfect for those of you who {like me} want amazing dessert with minimal effort.

Chocolate Fudge

Printable Version - adapted from the Eagle Brand fudge recipe

2 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (14 ounce) can of sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Pin It!
Semi-sweet chocolate chips, vanilla extract, sweetened condensed milk
Yep - this is it: 3 ingredients
 In a saucepan, combine chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk. Melt over low heat.

Chocolate chips mellllttting in the condensed milk!
Once melted, remove from heat and add the vanilla extract. Stir until smooth. It's okay if it's still a tiny bit chunky.

All mixed together
Pour the chocolately goodness into a 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish lined with wax paper.

All ready for the fridge!
Allow to cool in the fridge for 2 hours or until firm. After, remove from pan, peel off the wax paper, cut, and SHOVEL IT IN!

Easy fudge, fudge cubes, fudge squares
It's amazing. Trust me.
Feeling adventurous? You can do so much with this recipe. I've tried:
  • Adding a couple handfuls of marshmallows and/or walnuts after stirring in the vanilla
  • Creme de menthe extract instead of vanilla
  • Half semi-sweet chocolate chips and half white chocolate
One year money was really tight for Christmas so we gave all of our friends a cute tin filled with a variety of different types. Makes for a cheap and easy (but oh-so-good!) gift.
