Do you love fudge? I know our family does! We all have a little bit of a sweet tooth and nothing quite fills it like some delicious, creamy fudge. The only problem is, fudge seems like such a pain to make. I don’t want to get the pots and pans out, double boilers, and everything else in between. What if I told you that you didn’t have to any more?
Let me introduce you to the easiest fudge you’ll ever make.
Not only is this an easy fudge recipe, it is also one of the most versatile! Do you like goodies in your fudge like nuts or dried fruit? Do you like white chocolate, dark chocolate, or milk chocolate? Whichever you like, it is no problem, it is just as easy!
Are you ready for the secret ingredients?
A can of frosting and chocolate chips.
Seriously, that’s it!
Put your chocolate chips in a microwave safe dish. I used a glass measuring cup for easy pouring. Put it in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time. After each 30 seconds, stir it will, scraping the bottom up. It should take about a minute and 30 seconds depending on your microwave. You are looking for a smooth consistency like pictured above. On the last go around you may see a few chips left in the bowl, stir well and they will melt.
Scoop all of the frosting out into a medium to large sized bowl. Pour your melted chocolate into the bowl and mix well. I mix mine easily with a spoon, no mixer required!
Add any mix-ins you may want (optional). Here I added dried cranberries. Just pour them all on top and mix/fold it in with a spoon or spatula.
Line an 8″ x 8″ baking dish with aluminum foil. Leave excess on the sides so you can lift it out of the dish when it is done. This will make this recipe even easier, but this step is optional.
Pour your fudge mix into the dish and refrigerate until set. This step usually takes an hour depending on your refrigerator, but you can leave them in there as long as you need.
When your fudge has set, pull the aluminum foil out of the baking dish, and cut into squares with either a knife or even better, a pizza cutter!
And that is it! 6 easy steps and you are done. I personally love the white chocolate and cranberry mix, but be warned it is very sweet. My husband prefers the milk chocolate with chopped walnuts mixed in. After writing this I am now going to go try dark chocolate chips with raspberry frosting! I think it will make a fabulous Christmas party dessert!
Give this and try and let us know what your favorite mix is!
