Hey everyone, thanks for hanging in there. Its been quite some time since I have updated this site. Work has kept me pretty busy lately. I am going to make some effort for more updates, especially now that the holidays are around the corner. Ok, so here we go!

  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (12 oz bag) semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  1. Line a 9 x 9 inch pan with HEAVY DUTY aluminum foil and grease with butter. Set aside.
  2. In a large sauce pan, add the condensed milk, chocolate chips, and butter. Cook over low heat, stirring often to avoid burning. Cook until mixture is melted and well combined.
  3. Remove from heat and add vanilla; stir until combined.
  4. Pour mixture into the prepared pan. Tap few times to remove air bubbles.
  5. Place in the refrigerator to set for at least 2 hours.
  6. When set, remove from pan using the foil and cut into pieces.
  7. Store fudge in fridge for long storage. Just remove from fridge an hour or so before serving to soften.
Feeling confident yet? Now to move onto a more complicated recipe...
