Question by tockerz57: Could someone please give me a fool-proof creamy chocolate fudge recipe?
I’ve made Alton Brown’s fudge, Mamie Eisenhower’s Million Dollar Fudge, and the Kraft Marshmallow cream version. Sometimes grainy, sometimes hard, other times perfect. Anybody got a recipe that really works every time????
Please? The holiday season is coming and I’m getting desparate over here!
Answer by Nhi P
1 pkg semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 stick butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup powdered sugar
coconut flakes (optional)
This is a great creamy fudge recipe my mother gave me; I cannot stand dry crumbly fudge so this is one of my favorites.
The chocolate you use must be real semi-sweet chocolate chips (no substitutions, no imitation chocolate chips, no other types of chocolate).
Combine semi-sweet chocolate chips and butter in microwave safe dish and microwave on defrost setting at 2 minute intervals stirring between each interval until smooth. A double boiler method can be used if desired.
Mix in the butter, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla and powdered sugar until smooth.
Add enough mini-marshmallows to make the mixture lumpy (around 2-3 cups depending on your preference.
Lay out approximately 18 inches of wax paper and sprinkle on a layer of coconut flakes leaving enough room to form the fudge into a log (may make 2 logs depending on the amount of marshmallows used). Pour fudge mixture onto the center of the wax paper and pull the two long sides of the wax paper together and fold them together, tuck the two ends under to form a log.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours (I usually wait overnight) and cut log into pieces.
The mini-marshmallows give this fudge its stained glass effect. The marshmallows can also be omitted for standard fudge and you can spread the mixture into a baking dish and cover instead of using the wax paper to form logs.
EASY CREAMY CHOCOLATE FUDGE
1 (12 oz.) pkg. (2 c.) Nestle Toll House semi-sweet chocolate Morsels
1 (14 oz.) can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk (NOT evaporated milk)
1 1/4 c. chopped Diamond walnuts
1 measuring tsp. vanilla extract
Combine over hot (not boiling) water, Nestle Toll House semi-sweet chocolate morsels and Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk; stir until morsels melt and mixture is smooth. Stir in Diamond walnuts and vanilla extract.
Spread evenly into foil lined 9 inch round pan to form wreath or foil lined 8 inch square pan. Chill until firm (about 2 hours). Cut wreath into 2 inch wedges or cut square into 1 inch squares. If preferred, you may roll each square into a ball shape and roll in finely chopped Diamond walnuts. This recipe makes a creamy fudge. Makes about 60 wedges or 64 – 1 inch squares.
