If you are looking for an easy treat or something to make and take to your neighbors, I want to suggest this easy fudge recipe. Over the years, I have tried all kinds of fudge recipes with varying degrees of success but I have finally found one that turns out great every time, tastes yummy and is very easy!!
3 cups of chocolate chips( I like to use two cups of chocolate chips and 1 cup of butterscotch chips...it still tastes like chocolate fudge but with a depth of flavor as Ina Garten would say!)
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
dash of salt
1 tsp vanilla
Mix all the ingredients together in a medium saucepan over low heat. Stir until thoroughly combined. Pour into an 8 inch pan that is lined with buttered foil. Put in fridge to set up, then cut into small squares and serve!! Easy Peasy! If you like nuts in your fudge, simply chop up 1/2 to 1 cup of nuts and stir into the fudge before placing it in foil lined pan.
I always try to make my fudge on a day when it is not raining. Dampness in the air and candy making do not go together!! I still have some treats to make for Christmas but I am in the home stretch for being ready for the big day!
