Easy Fudge Recipe

Saturday, December 21, 2019
If you are looking for an easy chocolate fudge or a variety of fast fudge that's foolproof, this is it.


I have been making this vintage recipe since the later 1960s.


This fudge can be made chocolate, white, peanut butter and there are endless variations to add or leave plain.


We love all kinds of fudge and make Amaretto Pistachio fudge every year for Christmas but we still have our plain and nut-filled fudge lovers in the family.


If you love making homemade gifts, or easy kitchen pantry staples like my homemade sweetened condensed milk recipe.

Melting the milk and chocolate chips are the easy part, waiting for it to set in the refrigerator is the hardest!

After 30 plus years, it's still the best recipe for not standing over a hot stove with a candy thermometer to make fudge and worry it won't set right, oh how I remember those days!
