I have another way of saying Thank You to everyone...CHOCOLATE!!!!
I have used this chocolate fudge recipe for years now and it's always a hit with my family, my hubby in particular. I always make this for the holidays and it isn't Christmas if it's not on the goodie tray. However, I was thinking how perfect this recipe would be for a quick Valentine's Day present!!
original recipe is found here
3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
dash of salt
Prepare an 8 or 9 inch square cake pan by lining it with waxed or parchment paper and set aside.
The original recipe says to melt over the stove, but I have always made this only in the microwave in a matter of minutes and it's so easy.
Mix chocolate chips and condensed milk in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds to one minute at a time until melted. Stir in vanilla and dash of salt.
Spoon into pan and press fudge into the corners and even out thickness. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until set, about 2 hours.
Lift waxed paper out of pan and peel off the back of the fudge. Cut into one inch cubes.
Now you can just serve this in a decorative candy dish, but if you want to make a cute little gift out of it, you can wrap them individually in waxed paper.
Cut squares of waxed paper or plastic wrap. Place fudge square in the middle, roll up the paper and twist the ends to secure.
Quick and easy to grab and stays fresh longer.
You can use a cute cellophane bag and ribbon or a little red take out box you can find in any craft store to give the fudge as the perfect Valentine's gift.
This recipe is the best and I hope you will give it a try. It's great as a gift or that hidden stash you steal from once in a while for a treat!! Either way, they won't last long
Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart, for all your love and support,
