    NO FAIL Chocolate Fudge

    Hi everyone. With so much activity and interest in Chocolate Fudge, I would love to share MY recipe too!
    My sister actually gave me this recipe and it is, in fact, everywhere. I have made it tons of times and I promise you, you will lOVE it. Your friends and family will think you are a candy making genius too!!!
    Its a little more than chocolate and Icing but well worth the ingredients and effort. Watch the video here
    and then share with me your thoughts. http://gourmetcandymaker.com/super-e...ocolate-fudge/

    The recipe is:
    18 ounces PREMIUM chocolate (Flavor of your choice, milk, dark or white chocolate)
    14 ounces Bordens Condensed Milk
    1 TSP of PURE VANILLA (Not imitation please)
    1/4 TSP Sea Salt... regular salt is fine too.

    8″X 8″ lined pan
    Heat Bordens Condensed milk just until it budbbles around the edges.
    Melt premium chocolate in Microwave (Small bursts, careful NOT to burn)
    Combine both ingredients in heat safe bowl, add vanilla and sea salt and stir stir stir.
    When thoroughly stirred it will look almost fluffy. Turn out into 8X8 pan and cool until firm.

    Cut into 1″ to 1 1/2″ squares and serve.
    For a thicker slice of fudge, double the recipe and use the same 8″ X 8″ pan.

    A nice HOLIDAY VARIATION

    DARK CHOCOLATE PEPPERMINT FUDGE
    Dark chocolate Instead of milk chocolate (Same quantity)
    Add 1/2 CUP crushed peppermint candy canes (just before you pour into pan)
    Decorate top with crushed peppermint pieces.
    Cut into 1″ squares and serve (small is good with this rich treat)
    For a thicker slice of fudge, double the recipe and add 1 CUP crushed peppermint pieces.
    MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone

    This is the fudge I have made for over 30 years. People can't believe it is this easy when they taste it. Time to make some more!

    This sounds perfect.

    What is "Premium" chocolate. Is that a brand? Is it different from Baker's Chocolate? Is it chocolate chips? I want to try it.

    Heres the Chocolate fudge recipe I use.

    1-12oz package of chocolate chips melted
    1-8oz package of room temperature cream cheese
    1- 1pound box of powdered sugar
    1/2 cup chopped nuts

    While you are melting the chocolate chips, mix well the room temperature cream cheese and all the powdered sugar.Pour the melted chocolate into that mixture.Stire in nuts. Quickly pour onto a cookie sheet and let harden. Cut into bite sized peices. Enjoy.
    There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING...

    Premium simply means real Chocolate containing all three cocoa ingredients: Cocoa Powder (solids) Cocoa butter and cocoa liquor. There are many wonderful brands: Merckens, Callebaut, Peters. Premium chocolate MUST BE tempered and will never contain a tropical oil in place of cocoa butter. Premium chocolate or REAL chocolate will note the cocoa content on the wrapper. Chocolate Chips, compound or Wiltons Meltaways are NOT real chocolate. Bakers chocolate is real chocolate but contains little or no sugar or milk products. It is processed quickly so does not have the smooth mouth feel of premium chocolate. Check out this link for a somplete explaination of grades of chocolate and how to select the right one for your project/recipe. http://gourmetcandymaker.com/select-the-best-chocolate/
    BTW you can buy Merckens chocolate through Amazon.com Look for flavors: Yucatan for Dark and Marquis for milk.

    I couldn't believe it either. My Sister made several batches for a party... I ate SO much more than my share When she gave me the recipe I was surprised and happy to find a fool proof recipe at last!

    I am thinking this should be sweetened condensed, but you have twice inticated it is just condensed. Before I invest in all this rather expensive chocolate, I would ask.....condensed or sweetened condensed? Thank You!!

    Hi, I made it for Christmas before I saw your post. I went ahead & just made it with 16 oz. My nieces's husband loved it & wanted a copy of the recipe right away. Thank you again.

    Glad to hear it turned out using 2 ounces less chocolate 18 ounces is a strange increment. Happy New year!
