    Two Ingredient Fudge!

    This is the time of the year when you need a really simple recipe. Here it is!!!

    One bag Chocolate Chips
    One Can Chocolate Frosting.

    In a microwave safe bowl (I use a 4 cup glass glass measuring cup) melt the the chocolate chips. (I melt mine at 30% power for about 5 minutes and there's no danger of burning the chocolate.) When the chocolate chips are melted stir in the frosting. Microwave on 30% power for 30 more seconds or until smooth. (If desired you can stir in a 1/2 cup chopped nuts.)

    Line an 8" square pan with foil. Butter the foil to prevent sticking. (Or use Reynolds Non Stick Foil). Pour the chocolate mixture into the prepared pan. Chill the pan in the fridge till set (about a half an hour.)

    When set, remove the foil from the pan and cut as desired. Enjoy

    Note: This fudge was such a hit I decided to experiment with other flavors. White chocolate chips with white frosting was wonderful. I stirred in some broken peppermint candy for the holidays!
    I am thinking about a Peanut Butter version. Maybe peanut butter chips with chocolate frosting or chocolate chips with peanut butter frosting.

    Just be sure to not give anyone the recipe!!

    Let them think how you slaved over a hot stove making it for them, and then just got it so right!

    What a neat and easy idea. Thanks for posting. I am going to try it this week.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    Sounds wonderful. Plus, use your pizza cutter to cut precise squares.

    Our family favorite of this includes either milk chocolate or vanilla frosting and peppermint chips. YUMMY!! I've also used milk chocolate frosting and chocolate chips and added a few drops of raspberry flavoring. :-)

    I like to melt chocolate chip spread a thin layer and let if firm up then top it with the white chocolate with peppermint . It is so much better than the expensive store bought.

    Does it stay firm when at room temperature?

    If you let it get very firm and cool the white mixture as long as you can before pouring it . I have never had a problem.

    Yummy is the right word. My all time favorites are peppermint, chocolate, or raspberry.

    This time of the year-fast and easy- is the name of the game. This recipe sounds like a winner.

    I make Rachael Rays 10 min fudge and it is this easy and great. The only thing I do differently than in yours and her recipe is that I have the silicone pans in different shapes and I spray them with pan and put the hot mixure in it and it's so easy to get out. I have a pan from Pampered Chef that has small cupcake size flowers and a larger bunt size and they both turn out really pretty fudge. I add nuts to mine as well.

    I made yesterday and used milk chocolate frosting and milk chocolate chips...YUM. I also made some with vanilla frosting and a bag of peanut butter chips...YUM. I am thinking about vanilla, white chocolate and broken candy canes.

    Just don't use the whipped topping. Ask why I know?
