Get ready to enjoy the Easiest Fudge in the World! Fudge recipes just don't get any simpler than this. Make up a batch of these treats to give out as gifts this holiday season. I dare you not to eat them all first though!

Notes

Variations: 


Candy Tidbits:



  • For Rocky Road Fudge, add 1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows and 1 1/2 cups chopped toasted walnuts or pecans to fudge before scraping into pan.

  • For Chunky Fudge, add 1 1/2 cups dark raisins and 1 cup chopped toasted peanuts.

  • For Fudge X 3, divide recipe in half. Use bittersweet chocolate for one half and spread in pan. Use milk chocolate for second half and spread in pan on top of first half. While still soft, scatter 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips on top and press into surface with your fingers.

Chilling Time2 hr

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons (about 1/2 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces

Instructions

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I've made this for craft shows as well as for my family and me. I've named it "The Devil Made Me Do It" Fudge

Could you use the same amount of semi sweet chocolate chips for the chocolate?

This is a great recipe, but since my lovely bride likes Milk chocolate, I use the same amount of milk chocolate chips. Semi-sweet chips work equally well.

Of course, but it's better with milk chocolate...and I'm a dark chocolate lover!
