Fuss-Free Fudge

Comment on this recipe

"This is the easiest and most fool-proof fudge recipe I have ever found. Not once have I ended up with a sugary pan of fudge!"

Ingredients

10 ounces sweetened condensed milk
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts or 1/2 teaspoon peppermint flavoring, optio

Instructions

Melt both kinds of chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a double boiler or over very low heat on the stove. Do not stir until the chips appear to be melted to avoid the fudge from getting sugary. Add vanilla. Pour into a non-greased baking pan (8x8-inch size) and allow to cool before cutting into squares. For more rapid cooling, the pan may be placed in the refrigerator. Note: For nutty or mint fudge, add these optional ingredients before stirring and pouring into the baking pan.
