Sometimes the simplest recipes yield the richest results. This glossy combination of chocolate morsels and sweetened condensed milk is even better embellished with vanilla and chopped nuts.

    STICK to the recipe

    Geraldine Reed from Montrose PA

    I substituted a milk chocolate peanutbutter chip combination 12-oz. pkg. and the fudge wouldn't harden. I had a BIG mess, rolling it into balls and then into granulated sugar so it could still be eaten. They never did get hard. I called them "Horse Puckey!" and they were tasty. The first batch from orig. recipe were perfect.

    BLUE RIBBON

    I made this fudge for the county fair. I substituted pistaschios for the chopped walnuts. I was in competition with others who had been doing this for years. Imagine my surprise when I was awarded a blue ribbon.

    Substitutions

    Melinda Anderson from Minnesota

    After the holidays, I make this fudge from the small amounts of chocolate chips left over from other recipes -- combined to make 2 cups. Also, I substitute for the walnuts either whatever leftover nuts I might have (chopped up, mixed is good) or crushed candy canes.

    Fudge

    Deborah Williams from Irving, TX

    I make this every year for the Holidays, but we had a pot luck at work for the 4th of July and I made this Fudge. I live in Texas and the summers are very hot so when I said I'll make fudge my co-workers thought I was crazy. Fudge in the middle of summer, with this recpie YES. It was quick and easy and a hit at the pot luck. Now my co-workers think I'm the queen of candy making. Little do they know.

    My Kids Favorite fudge

    Shelley Dagenais from Hamilton/Ontario

    I could not believe how easy it was to make and how yummy it is. My daughter and her friends thought I was the greatest mom because I would make fudge for them when they had a gathering at our home. Everyone of them loved it. I rememered how my dad use to make his creamy awesome fudge and it took so long to make and set, and Easy Chocolate Fudge is so quick, creamy and delicious it is a miracle of a recipe. I almost feel like the mom who made rice crispy squares for her family then sprinkles her self with flour to make them think she was working harder then she was.

    Easy Chocolate Fudge

    BARBARA MOORE from SALEM, CT

    Awesome fudge! I have made this for years. My husband is a chocoholic and he absolutely loves the creamy texture. I've tried other recipes, but this is the absolute winner and he can tell the difference! I do heat the choc. chips and milk together in the microwave, on a medium setting for about 2 minutes, and then 1 minute intervals, sturing in between. It makes the process that much quicker.

    Wonderfully tasty and easy!

    Carissa Johnson from Encinitas, CA

    I'm so glad I found this recipe! It was so simple! Far less daunting than the recipe in my cookbook! Not only was it easy, but it was so tasty! I took it to my Christmas gathering and my whole family loved it too...some even saying it was the best and creamiest fudge they've ever had! I'm going to make this every year (and maybe sometimes in between).
