Really Good Easy Fudge!

>> Saturday, January 10, 2009

ever had one of those weeks that felt like it was neverending? and that it was filled with things that you dreaded doing? and that those things all went terribly, horribly wrong?

i did. but this easy fudge that i made this morning ALMOST made up for it! it is so good - and simple to make - that i had to post about it... mostly so that i wouldn't lose the recipe!

all you need is:

3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 300 ml can condensed milk
1/4 cup unsalted butter

heat a burner on the stove on low. not the lowest temperature, but pretty low so that nothing will burn. put all the ingredients in a heavy pot. heat slowly, stir often so that everything is incorporated. it will be a little lumpy as the chocolate chips melt, but keep going. eventually everything will melt together and after about 15 minutes, the mixture will "ball" up and start to pull away from the sides of the pot. (i know that there is a term for that, but seeing as i have no candy thermometer and most of my cooking is done renegade-style, i'm not using the lingo, LOL)

lightly butter, or line a dish or pan large enough to hold the whole mixture with parchment or waxed paper. if you're adding nuts or marshmallows or candied fruit, sprinkle on the bottom of the pan, then spoon the chocolate mixture on top. spread out evenly and smooth the top. cover with saran wrap and put in the fridge for at least two hours.

this fudge had the most AMAZING texture and is rich and creamy. totally comforting and a sweet ending to a horrible week!
maybe it will motivate me to start getting organized today... MAYBE... :)
