chocolate fudge from sugarlaws

Are there any of you out there who still have some holiday gifts that aren’t finished yet?  Maybe you’re a bit behind in your shopping, maybe there’s someone you just remembered about, or maybe you just want to do something unexpected and special for someone you care about.  And maybe, just maybe, you want that special and unexpected thing to be edible.

Also, because time is short this season, maybe you don’t want that lovely edible present to take all day.  Also, maybe you don’t have a candy thermometer.

Maybe all those things are true.  And if they are, oh, do I have a recipe for you.

Because this is a chocolate fudge recipe that’s decadent, easy, and stunningly delicious.  Try it, and the recipient of this little holiday gift will thank you (and me!) until next year.  And what better to serve for dessert at Christmas, or for New Years?  I know I couldn’t turn down a square of this delicious fudge.

Also, the big winner for the It’s Complicated giveaway is comment #99, Janice!  The two additional winners are comments #30 and #112, Steve and Carole!  I’ll be emailing later today for your addresses!

Chocolate Fudge Recipe

1 pound good-quality dark chocolate, chopped
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

Prepare a dish for the fudge by lining it with tin foil, and then coating the foil with cooking spray.  Toss all the dry ingredients together (including the chocolate) until lightly coated, and then stir in the condensed milk.  Set the bowl over a saucepan containing simmering water until the chocolate is melted, and then remove the bowl from the water and stir for another minute or two.  Pour the fudge into the prepared pan, and then refrigerate until set, several hours or overnight.  Take the fudge out of the pan, cut into squares, and serve.

    Definitely a perfect Xmas gift! Something edible and how could anyone say no to chocolate?

    I love chocolate fudge… and the simpler the recipe the better!  I’d love to be on the receiving end of this treat.

    Tell you what…I didn’t know it would be this easy! I think I’m going to add this as teeny tiny bites on our Christmas dinner menu. 🙂

    What a simple recipe for fudge! And, dare I say, slightly more healthy for you than the recipe on the back of the Fluff container?

    (Don’t quote me on that. I’m not a nutritionist.)

    This is the simplest fudge recipe I have ever seen–thanks. 🙂 This year I made hermit bars for my colleagues, which is made with whole wheat flour. I think my friends and work mates are used to getting healthy treats!

    You can even make this stuff in the microwave! I thin it down to use as chocolate sauce for my creampuffs. Yum.

    Minus the baking soda … what does that do for it?

    I’ve never made fudge before. Nor have I made any type of candy for that matter. I’m also slightly embarrassed to say that I don’t know what fudge is either. I made this for my wife using 8oz of 100% dark and 8oz of 60% dark. The recipe was insanely easy and the result was ok (but I’m not big into sweets, just cooking)

    My wife who ended up telling me she doesn’t like fudge after I made it for her loved it and ate the whole thing.

    The few pieces I saved to have friends taste test it were quickly devoured, and when asked if it was the way fudge was supposed to be, comments of “right on” and “exact” were the norm.

    So even though I’m not a big fan, this is now going to be my go-to recipe for quick gifts. Thanks for the recipe!

    I love making white chocolate fudge, and even adding some almonds or nuts to spice this one up. I haven’t decided how much to make for the holidays this year, as my brother is living with us and he has the biggest sweet tooth EVER! I’m sure half of it will be gone before I can even blink!
