Part of me doesn't want to give away my evil secret but...I'm going to stuff that part back in the basement where she belongs.  If you want to make fudge, you can mess around with double boilers and candy thermometers...or you can cheat and no one will know!  

Ingredients:
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 pound (3 cups) chocolate chips
   You can use semi-sweet, milk chocolate, white chocolate, peanut butter, etc.
   I usually use half milk chocolate & half semi-sweet.
   Dont use all semi-sweet unless you know that the person is a dark chocolate fan.

Materials:
Microwave
Microwave-safe bowl
Foil
Something with vertical sides for cooling the fudge (I use a 9x9 casserole dish)


Directions:

1. Place milk & chips in bowl.

2. Microwave on high at for 1 minute, then 30 second intervals until chocolate looks melty.  Stir.  If its still not completely melted, then 30 more seconds (etc.)

3. Line whatever youre cooling the fudge in with foil.  

4. Pour, chill completely, then cut into pieces.



Put it in holday goody packs, bring it to parties.  People think that this is really fancy and its unbelievably simple.  

You can do a lot of different things with this, if you want, like adding a cup of nuts, or a few drops of peppermint or orange extract.

If you want to get really fancy, divide the sweetened condensed milk.  To 2/3 of the milk, add 2 cups semi-sweet chips.  To 1/3 of the milk, add 1 cup white chocolate chips.  Pour the dark chocolate mixture into your cooling pan first.  Then pour the white chocolate mixture in lines up and down the pan.  Now use a knife or toothpick for marbling (be careful not to marble to much or youll just end up blending the two).  For mint marbling, you could add mint and green food coloring to the white chocolate mixture.  

Happy Holidays!

Yum, that sounds really good!  I'll have to try it.  Question, though: do you mean one of the short cans of sweetened condensed milk (8 oz) or the big ones (14 oz)?  I do something very similar with just chocolate chips, peanut butter, and maple syrup, but I'm off to the kitchen to try your way now!

This may be a stupid question, but I've never made fudge so forgive me: about how many pieces does this recipe make?

I used the 14 oz. can and that seemed to be the right size for 3 cups of chips.  I put it in an 8x8 or 9x9 brownie pan lined with foil and it makes a LOT.  Like...I don't know, maybe 30 pieces?  It's very chocolatey and rich, according to the husband.  I can't eat dairy, so I didn't try it, but he and the kids said it was very good.  But, yes, count on it making a whoooooole lot of fudge.

I haven't made fudge in a LONG time....

thise sounds too simple not to try!!
Do you tihnk it would be ok to ship? I'd wrap pieces individually in waxed paper then line them up in a tin. (spoilage?? I will be shipping from NY to CT  so not like it's hot out...)
How long did it take to set up?
I think I am going to try two batches.
One with 2/3 milk chocolate  & mable 1/3 white chocolte. will try adding some v day sprinkles to this.
One with 2/3 Milk Chocolate & 1/3 Peanut butter or Butter Scotch swirls.

My mouth is watering already!!

I am letting this cool right now. I made it for Disneyland (so we have things to munch on while there). Used butterscotch chips and semi-sweet with a drop or 5 of almond extract. Thanks for the recipe!
