semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (14 ounce) can
EAGLE BRAND® Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 1/2 teaspoons
A small tip - after chilling for 2 hrs this is very hard to get out of the pan. Put a couple of inches of hot water in your sink and let the pan sit in it for 15 minutes. You can then flip it over and it will pop right out.
Sets up nicely, very easy with great texture, however, this fudge tasted like chocolate chips and nothing more. It definitely has potential, I might try it again with better chocolate....
Awesome fudge. I use one bag of milk chocolate chips and add 1/2 bag of semi-sweet also. This leaves a very nice creamy texture. Here's a little tip that everyone loves. Freeze the remaining 1/2 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips. At the end of stirring, pour in the frozen chocolate chips, give the mix one good, quick, final stir, pour into pan and refrigerate. (I like it cold!) The mixture is hot enough to melt part, but not all, of the frozen chips. It will leave tiny chocolate chunks throughout. Want another tip? After preparing as I did above, add one cup of peanut butter to this recipe before the final stirring and refrigerate. Mmmm!! (If adding the frozen chocolate chips, always add them last to prevent them from melting totally.) Having trouble getting it out of the pan? Line the pan with foil. After it sets, simply lift it out, remove the foil, and place the fudge on a dish or cutting surface to cut.
This recipe is wonderful.... I have made it for years.. A wonderful way to present this as a gift is to place the empty can wrapped in plastic wrap in the middle of a glass pie dish, then pour the fudge around it. When it sets it makes a wonderful wreath that you can adorn even more.
Excellent recipe.. I got a little creatived and used white choclate in stead of dark and Mint extract instead of vanilla then added 3 drops of green food coloring. My family thinks it the best think since Andie's mints. I'm sure this will become a new Christmas tradition on my party table. Jeanette
I tried this recipe, thought it was a little too chocolatey for my taste. Took the advice of a reviewer, used 2 cups semi and 1 cup milk choc. PERFECT! I ended up making 5 batches for gifts. Everyone loved it! So easy and good! Thank you.
This is a great recipe! It makes a good, quick, inexpensive gift for teachers, neighbors, etc. It is also something nice to bring to parties or set out when unexpected guests drop by. I make it in lots of different varieties, from butterscotch to white chocolate, and I mix in all kinds of things to make it more interesting. My family's favorite varieties are peanuts & raisins, peanuts & marshmallows, oreos & white chocolate and white chocolate & crushed peppermint. Mix in the candies at the end and then refrigerate.
One more thing. Rachel Ray was on Oprah recently and she made a recipe like this one but she made it in the shape of a wreath. I tried it that way (used a jello mold) and it came out fabulous! It was my gift to each of my neighbors.
This is DELICIOUS and truly foolproof. I made it extra yummy by using Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Chips.
