Don’t worry, I am back! I was on vacation last weekend. That actually brings me to the idea for this Sunday’s post. We were in a lot of stores selling fudge so since being back home that is all I could think about. I decided to make some on my own and this recipe is so simple I couldn’t pass it up.
3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
1. Line a square 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
2. Over low heat, in a medium sized pot, add the chocolate chips, condensed milk and salt, and stir with a wooden spoon until chips are melted.
3. Remove from heat and add the vanillas. (If you don’t have vanilla paste, just double up on the vanilla extract.)
4. Pour into the parchment lined baking pan and spread evenly. Refrigerate for 4 hours until firm.
The fudge is so good, who needs to buy it already made! I had some extra Heath Toffee pieces so I decided to throw them in when I was mixing in the vanilla extract. It gives the fudge a bit of a crunch and adds an extra flavor. I would say you could mix in anything you want before you pour it in the pan to let it set.
