semisweet chocolate chips
1 (14 ounce) can
sweetened condensed milk
coarsely chopped walnuts
1 1/2 teaspoons
I think this is the easiest fudge recipe ever! Even though the recipe doesn't call for it, I add 1/4 cup heavy cream and 1/4 stick of butter to my chocolate chips when they are melting. Seems to make the fudge creamier and softer when it has cooled. I have also tried this by using 1/2 chocolate chips and 1/2 peanut butter chips and have put in unsalted peanuts, and have received great reviews!
I read the reviews and thought....maybe I should try it anyway. Well, it didn't turn out well. Unfortunately it did turn out just like others. I had a huge mess and it just didn't seem as if the measurements were correct. All, the same thanks for the post and the learning experience.

I used this recipe, without nuts, to make truffles...not only does it make great fudge, but the texture is perfect for scooping and rolling into balls. This also works as a wonderful base for flavorings and liquers!
It is simple, easy and good. I don't know what any of the other people who complained about it were doing but they could not have been following the directions correctly, as some mentioned maybe they used evaporated milk, because this is really simple and one of the first "candies" I ever attempted and had no problems. I've also used low fat and fat free condensed milk with great results.
This is the recipe I use when I don't want to go to all the trouble of making "real" fudge. I just melt the chips and cond. milk in the microwave, mix in the nuts and vanilla, and it comes out perfectly every time.
My Father-in-law is an avid fudge maker so wanting to bring a bit of their home to ours for christmas, I tried making fudge. My mistake was trying to do it the
I found this recipe when I needed to use up a can of sweetened condensed milk I'd bought mistakenly. Normally I'm a fan of fudge made with marshmallow fluff, but this was nice for something different. I agree with the person who said that it could be used as candy filling -- I may experiment with this base for truffles.
Two observations: it works best if you stir constantly, and add the chips gradually. Also, I was out of wax paper, and so I just sprayed the pan with cooking spray and left it in the fridge to chill til the fudge was ready. I was pleasantly surprised by how easily it comes out of the pan!
